My friend Diana, who is now in England, asked me the other day to post some "Inspiration" for her for Christmas cards. I do realize that this is not a Christmas card, but, when I saw a card very similar to this on Mary Jo Albright's blog "I" was inspired. I loved her card, so I cased it. I changed up the colors and the sentiment and a few of the embellishments. I think that the true inspiration comes from the layout of a card and what the person does with it. Mary Jo's card is just beautiful and I think mine came out pretty good too.

So remember Diana, take the inspiration from the "look" of the card not necessarily the "type" of card. I will be posting more in the next few days for ya. I finally got all my watermarks on my photos.

I would put a link to MJ's blog but I can't remember what it's called and I must have 200 of them saved in my favorites.

I found it!!! MJ's Card
