Fabulous Friday - Inspiration

We have a wonderful inspiration challenge from the lovely Heather this Fabulous Friday! :-)

"With the Christmas season upon us, inspiration is literally everywhere right now. It's definitely a delight for the senses. You can find inspiration in the wrapping paper and cards, advertisments, decorations, tableware, beautifully wrapped gifts, clothing, Christmas lights and even baking. Everywhere I turn, I see beautiful color combinations, amazing text work, cute images, and definitely BLING! The only thing that seems to be missing right now is some time. It is the busiest season of the year and time is at a premium for most people. However, even if I can't find the time to scrapbook right now, I can take pieces of that inspiration and make something homemade for someone else.

I couldn't resist taking this adorable tag off of a set of Joe pajamas that I gave away this year. Isn't it cute?! I couldn't resist using it on a card, adding a little bling, some rub-ons and a popping it up for some dimension.

How about you? Are you feeling overwhelmed with inspiration right now but you don't have any time? Still need some Christmas cards/tags/gifts to give away? How about taking some of that inspiration and creating something on your to-do list? Consider it a challenge, if you will ;-)

As for all those other ideas filling my mind right now, I'm filing those away in my idea book for January when the cold weather is here to stay and my life returns to the normal semi-crazy pace I'm more used to, which means I might have a little bit more time to scrapbook. We all know I'll certainly have a whole lot more photos then too."

I think you will agree with me that this card is fabulous! Please let Heather know too!

You are so right about finding time to scrap at this moment. I love your card and the idea of of keeping a list of ideas for after the holidays is a good one. I have many projects on a list that I would love to try when things slow down.

You've inspired me - I have some smallish images from stuff that I didn't know how to use! And I need to add to my idea book too - no time for even that, it seems!

Love it. It's always a challenge to know what to do with pp covered with words and this is perfect inspiration.
