Challenge #137 - Photo Inkspiration

Welcome back to Inkspirational. This time we challenge you to use this photo as inkspiration.

Please welcome our wonderful Guest Designer:

Linda




Hi everyone. I am so excited to be guest designing for this challenge on Inkspirational. I feel I have been crafting in some way or another since school days, but found I love most of all being able to make cards. I began almost 12 years ago when I was off work for 6 weeks with a back injury, and spent a lot of my time watching the craft channel on TV. Since then, I haven't really found a style I don't like. I love die-cutting, and - thanks to my Misti - can now stamp quite effectively. I do struggle with clean and simple, though. I work full time in the NHS, and live with my hubby and two gorgeous big black cats - that's not to say my hubby isn't gorgeous too.....in Chesterfield in the UK. Home of the Crooked Spire.

Challenge #136 Designer's Choice - Windows



Welcome back to Inkspirational. Our challenge this time has been chosen by DT member Carol, and she wants to see windows on our projects.

Please welcome our wonderful Guest designer: 

Pam

Hello!  I’m so delighted to be guesting for Inkspirational Challenges this week! I started stamping in the Spring of 1994 and haven’t looked back. Of course it was heat embossing that first enchanted me! Since then I love to color with Copics and other mediums, love all the watercoloring and watercolor techniques and when I come up with a CAS card, I’m really happy! I’m a wife to Tim, mother to 3 married daughters and gram to 17 beautiful grandchildren who love to stamp with me too!  yay! Thanks for having me!
I’d love it if you join me on social media!
