Anne's blog is inspiring as-is, what an amazing photographer! But now she challenges us to C.A.S.E. one of her cards. CASE stands for “Copy And Selectively Edit” or “Copy And Steal Everything”. I prefer the old standard... "make it your own!"
I went over Anne's photostream, what a pleasure, I encourage you to spend a little time there too. Anyway, while I was there I noticed that Anne likes to make up the backgrounds with Distress ink as much as I do. Ah Ha!! Inspiration hits .... this will be a easy peasy one!
So I sat down to "whip" out a card for this challenge. Did my email. Wrote up my grocery list. Played with the cat. She always knows when to do a "rub by". Well, what's for lunch?
So that didn't work out very well. But when I did sit down later and I picked up this new butterfly stamp to put it away and remembered that my last card for Anne had butterflies on it. I brought that pic up and next thing I knew I was stamping and clipping and sponcing away.
Inspiration is a funny thing. It comes in waves, sometimes tidal, some times lapping at your toes. It recedes away but it comes back. You just have to remember to enjoy the times in between too.
Thank you Anne, for inspiring me, for sharing your marvelous photographs... for being you.
till next time, ENJOY! the Oz
