I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Love for Inspiration from Around Blog-land

Hi and Happy Friday all,

I have SO been enjoying all of the cards around blog-land lately using the little Valentine's girl from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set from Stampin' Up. Especially those from Vicki over at her blog "It's A Stamp Thing".  I've enjoyed them so much that I've been inspired to pull my set out and join in the fun. I used this month's SFYTT layout on a base of kraft card stock to participate in Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday challenge.

Included on my card is an element that I was inspired to make after reading Danielle Lounds' blog this morning. It's the rosette. Danielle included instructions on how to make the rosette today. I followed her instructions and was very pleased with the results.

Thanks ladies for the wonderful inspiration!
