Inspired By...IB181 Fintastic Birthday

                          Sending and delivering hugs, one card at a time...

                    We are so excited to be back and creating paper hugs!  We have spent July with family and friends, and are ready to be back at our desks creating with                                                             all of you! 

We are introducing a new annual feature to the challenge blog from August-December .  We know that there are a lot of amazing sites to choose from when seeking inspiration, and we ALL only have so much time in any given week to create.  We want to offer challenges that will spark an idea for a card for any occasion you may need, but also spark an idea for a Christmas/Holiday card for your friends, co-workers or loved ones.  It is so busy from July-December, we want to encourage you to create/work "smarter not harder" (insert big smiley face), and if our challenges can give you inspiration for both, maybe you will have inspiration to motivate ALL of us to have some handmade Christmas/Holiday cards or tags come Holiday time!  

So,  each week we can't wait to see if you are inspired by the photo "IB" challenge, the Christmas/Holiday photo "IBC" challenge, or the sketch (you can use the sketch ANY way you like, and we have great sketch interpreters among us!)

Ready for the first peek at the photos? (As always, the sketch is at the end of the inspiration from the DT).

                                                          How are you inspired this week?
                        Colors? Kids' Birthday? Tropical Santa? Tropical? Sharks? Fish? Ocean                                                  Theme? Sketch? Tropical Christmas/Holiday?
                              We welcome your submissions for this challenge until                    Wednesday, August 11th, 11:55pm pst. The winner of each challenge will be announced on Sunday after the new challenge opens.

Here is how our IB team was inspired this week:
