Although very unusual for me, I had a an instant idea of what I was going to do! I wanted to use glitter enamel dots and little triangles, and put them across a counter. Of course, as a fairly clean crafter, the simplicity of the inspiration photo called my name too!
I found my glitteriest enamel dots. I have all of the Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles and use them regularly, but recently I got some Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp and they are even glitterier!! The three colors come from one set - the Magical Pastel Gumdrops. I have another set called Cosmic Crush which has a vivid blue - probably should have used that one to match the inspiration photo!!
I had originally intended to put the snow cones all the way across the window - but when I found a sentiment that worked, I like the way it sits inside.
Indulge me as I brag about my husband. He is supportive of the time that I spend making cards, but he doesn't particularly understand the craft. He tries to relate, but his comments are things like "too much bling" (I'm a clean crafter - if I have bling, it's usually three little sequins!) or "do you think that paper works there" (since I put it there, I guess I must!) But he has surprised me twice recently. A few weeks ago, we were wandering through IKEA. He saw a Raskog cart and immediately commented that it would be perfect for crafting. My jaw dropped because I have a number of blog friends who have road-tripped here to IKEA just for Raskog carts!! They are perfect for cardmakers. We didn't get one - I was just impressed that he saw the potential. Then a week ago, he called to say he had seen a large table at a store liquidation. It had a flat white surface, it raised and lowered and was on wheels and he thought it would be perfect for crafting. He got the table, I went and got a Raskog cart - and look at my beautiful new crafting surface!
Back to the challenge - - - be sure to head to the Curtain Call blog to see the rest of the inspiration - then play along!! I LOVE to see how everybody is inspired!
