More Inkspirations . . .

I have had such a lovely relaxing Saturday. I went with my kids to see "Igor" which was actually quite funny (if your kids hate villains though, skip this one because it is a little dark). I have been in kind of a funny mood all day -- full of giggles, which is fun. This morning at breakfast I was laughing so hard I choked on milk. *giggles* Oops! Maybe it is just out of control pregnant hormones, but oh well.

Anyway, after the movie, we ate some yummy leftover chicken noodle soup and played some Mario Kart (I seriously *heart* that game). And then . . . off to the stamp room! Saturday is Inspiration Challenge day on SCS! Today was a lovely set of dishes, that inspired me both with their gorgeous complimentary colors as well as with their textures. I went on a paper digging spree and came across some in the perfect colors to match my card! Next I needed a layout, so I stumbled on over to Amy R's blog, where she had a Friday sketch challenge, and I used that for my card. Hope you like it!
