Some Trees, A Star Man, and Some Flowers

I had some free time this morning so I played in the Splitcoast Stampers Inspiration Challenge - IC411. The inspiration site iDesignMe which is an Italian site. I am not sure what they do, but they have lots and lots of cool pictures. I did two cards based on pictures from the site. Here are the pictures I selected:

and here are my inspired creations:

In the first tag I used a part of an old cardboard box cut with a Sizzix tag die, painted it, added some glitter, and then cut some trees with the leftover cardboard using the Memorybox tall birch die. On the second tag, I rolled some old hymnal pages into paper cones, cut some cardboard and glittered it up, then I used the new Star Man image from Carmen Gamble at Squigglefly. Carmen is a new artist at Squigglefly.

I also made up a super quick Christmas card using Elizabeta Kushner's Wildflower Bouquet and Charlene Mitchell's Merry Christmas Set. It didn't take much time and all I used was some glitter. Quick, Quick, Quick.

After doing all this, I went shopping and started decorating my kitchen for Halloween. I don't usually do any Halloween decorating since my kids are grown now, but I thought my Bunco gals would get a kick out of it. Hope you are having a creative and relaxing weekend!
