Inspired by What?

Hop on over to the Flourishes blog and see my first post there as the January Limelight Designer!

Today I want to share with you briefly about where I get my inspiration for my projects. I tend to use nature and the color found there, as I am sure many of you also do, for the starting point for my cards. Take for example, the card I have made using Seaside Life:


It is rich with deep blues and greens of the ocean, and after a week of sub-zero temperatures, I am dreaming of the time when I can bask in the sunshine and warmth of the Atlantic Ocean again! The somewhat darker colors reflect the current winter season, but with the hope that someday my thermometer will rise above 10 degrees!

Thanks for stopping by today, and to all my loyal subscribers and readers:
I AM BACK!

I love seaside-inspired cards, having grown up within earshot of the sea.
Sub-freezing here too, and we've just lost our water supply - so I wouldn't mind some sunshine and warmth to.
It is good to see you back - hugs, Sabrina
