Clean & Simple Card Making - Day 3

The Day 3 class at Clean & Simple Cards was "Inspiration Made Simple".  The idea is where do we find inspiration for creating.  The answer is simple, we are surrounded by inspiration everyday.  Our hosts were Jennifer McGuire and Julie Ebersole with guest designer Tami Hartley.  I passed on creating a new card for this class because I just went through this process before Christmas.  So today I am sharing previously posted projects.About a year ago before Christmas I was picking up my morning coffee at Tim's  Hortons and my muffin came in this bag.


as soon as I saw the bag the colours and the ice skate inspired me.  I created a card based on this bag.  You can find the original post HERE.  


Then during December 2011 I used that card as inspiration to create a new tag modifying the ink and stamps slightly.

Cardstock: Kraft, Vintage Cream, Terra Cotta Tile

I love your inspiration and this is such a neat creation. Love the tag. However, I am not sure "I would love the chill" of winter"... ha! That sentiment has always cracked me up!

Fabulous job!!! :-)

This is perfect. I love how you went back to something you had done before and used it as inspiration.
