Cards Week 15 - Inspiration

Welcome back to Mothers and Daughters Creations! We have a really fun inspiration challenge for you this week, but before we get to that I want to congratulate last week's winner, melita! Look at this cute treat box she created:















Thanks so much to everyone who played - melita, be sure to email me (MDCreations.tlm@gmail.com) with your address so I can get you your new stamp set!!

This week, Linda chose this beautiful cup as an inspiration piece:




Can I just say, I really LOVE inspiration challenges! There are so many ways you can go - you can pick from the colors, or the shapes, or the images on the inspiration piece... so many possibilities! I love that everyone sees the same image and is able to pull something different out of it - what a way to showcase the creativity and talent of each person! Look at the awesome cards our design team came up with today... can you see where they got their ideas?


Giovanna Smith - A Place to Praise and Craft


















Maria Levine - riacreations

















Tamara McKlveen - MDC, Tamara's Page


















Of course, we have another fun give away this week - this awesome table top trash bin from Croppin Companion:


This has got to be one of my favorite organization tools!! They fold down flat, so they're great to take with you if you're stamping at an event, but I use mine at home too because they're so convenient!

So, a little reminder, we have TWO design team posts going on!! One is happening RIGHT NOW and it is for our scrapbooking team. Look here if you want to see all the details. We are also having a post for our card design team in November, but start playing as many challenges as you can because we really want to see how quick and consistent your work is!

We hope you're INSPIRED by this week's challenge - we can't wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope it's not too simple, but this is what came to me when I saw the cup.
Thanks for the fun challenge!

I hope it is okay that I did a layout instead of a card!
