Lawnscaping Challenge # 56: Inspiration

Happy Monday to you all!!  Today we are kicking off another Lawnscaping Challenge, and I am happy to be once again with the team as a Guest Designer!  It is so fun to be on both sides of this awesome challenge blog!

This week it is all about inspiration - whether its a supply, a certain crafter that you like and aspire to, or maybe even a site that you go to often that gives you inspiration.

Well, for my card that I am featuring today for this challenge - I am all about being inspired by a certain crafter, and her name is Cristina, or most of us know her as Yainea!!  I am honored to say she is one of my dear crafty friends, but she is also someone I am inspired by because her talent is out of this world.  I first took notice of her talent when she made this card for a previous Lawnscaping Challenge/Distressing and of course it was the winner of that challenge.  I loved it for SO many reasons, but without going into a lot of explanation as to why ( because some of it is obvious - I mean - LOOK AT IT - *grin* ) I contacted Yainea directly and told her how much in love I was with her card.  Well, after getting to know one another through email - and sending cards and crafty goodies a few times back and forth - one of the times I received a card from her was a remake of this very card!!  Instead of the sentiment being "Home" - she put "Friends".  I see this card everyday, because it is displayed in my craft room.  So - with ALL of that said - here is my card for this week's challenge, and its dedicated to YOU, Yainea! Hope you like it and don't mind that I "snatched up" some of your idea!

It's not very often I don't put a sentiment on my cards - but this one I wanted my scene to speak for itself!  If I give this card to anyone, I might add one later, but for now I am leaving it as it is.  Hope you all like it!!  I think it turned out really nice - and one of my favorite parts of this card is how my sunset came out!!

Be sure to go play in this week's challenge!! Thank you again Laurel for asking me to fill in for you this  month and to the other awesome ladies of the DT ( which has Yainea ) thank you for embracing me. I mean it from the bottom of my (crafty) heart! I really appreciate the opportunity so much!!
