It was a lot of fun seeing ideas from our members this week for IB190 & IB191C. Everyone is so talented and it is so fun to see where the inspiration will take you! It is also fun to see the Christmas inspiration being shared, it will make sending and delivering paper hugs a lot easier at Christmas time (a very busy time of year for all of us)! 

The winner, chosen by a DT member, of the IB190 challenge is this COOL card from Erin!  We love how she created these fun "rocks" and her interpretation of the sketch is perfect!  This is really so inspiring and such a fun card if you wanted to mass-produce to send out!  Thank you for sharing it with us this week and inspiring us to see the sketch in such a fun way!


The honorable mention, chosen by a DT memberof the IB1890 challenge is this colorful, fun card from Suzanne.  Her interpretation of the sketch, embossing behind the pumpkins, and thoughts to add these fun colors is so inspiring!  Thank you for inspiring us with this fun card!


 Congratulations Erin and Suzanne!
We can't wait to see more of your cards.

We hope you'll join us in this week's challenge: IB191 I'd Fall For You

Inspired By...IB189 All the Peels

Welcome to a very special  Inspired By  this week!  Hi friends, it's Michele, and I have extended my idea of 'playing cards with friends' to my wonderful friends, and teammates here at IB!   I asked each member of the team to invite a card-making friend to help us inspire you all to do the same - I'll bet we could start a cards-around-the-world event if we put our minds to it!!  I can't think of a more wonderful way to celebrate this wonderful community we get to play in!  Bonus:  It's National Love People Day!

So, tell me, are you in??  We were all so happy when our friends said YES!  We have two wonderfully inspiring photos, and a fun Sketch to tantalize you...  so please do come play cards with us!
