We are now officially less than 6 months away from Christmas, people! Time to start playing along with us at Muse: ChristmasVisions and this week is a great week to start if you haven't already. Marianne is our Guest Muse with this fun inspiration:

After all the ink blending and die cutting that went into yesterday's card, I couldn't throw out the scraps, so I made another card.
This time I added some high-contrast drama by backing the sponged panel on black. Funny how the same supplies can result in two very different-looking cards!
-Mama Elephant Hello Script Die
-MFT Pierced Rectangle Die
-Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins

This one is for this week's Muse Card Club, where Jenni has given us a fun inspiration:
I focused on Jenni's
-texture on the white card front
-Mama Elephant Hello Script die
-Clearly Besotted Good Times (retired)
-Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental
-MFT Wonky Stitched Square die
-Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins (4mm, 6mm)
This week's CASology Cue Card is Row!
My little canoe is lacking the paddle that would link this card more clearly to the Cue Card. But I know you're clever. You got it.
I inked up my Avery Elle canoe, water and sentiment (from Happy Camper) and it felt lost in the middle of all the white space, even after I coloured it all in. A black frame adds drama and captures attention.
Now it's your turn! Be sure to drop by the rest of the DT for more inspiration!

I'm so thrilled that I was asked to be the Guest at Inspired by All the Little Things this week!
I've got friends on the DT and have played along a few times because they always have really fun inspiration!
Here's this week's inspiration photo:
There is so much to be inspired by in this gorgeous summery photo - I can imagine that we'll see a lot of variety in the gallery as you all choose to focus on different elements! I can't wait!
I chose to focus on:
-the colours (sky, water and tablecloth)
-the white railing
- the flowers (don't you love the sequin-centres?)
-Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Light Blue, Turquoise Green, Light Carmine)
