Happy Thursday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week. Boy is winter on its way here this week. The temperature is in the 30's and they are predicting snow here today and on Saturday. I am so not ready for winter. My favorite part is sitting by the fire with the family. Scott is planning on stacking up wood for the fireplace so at least I have that to look forward to. Right now, all I want to do is crawl back in bed which I will do after finishing this post.

Today is the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. Lori sent us each a picture of a discontinued piece of fabric for our inspiration. When I saw it, it reminded me of Basic Grey's Lemonade paper so I went with it. To duplicate the many flowers in the pattern and the circles, I used my bloom dots embossing folder. I made a matchbox with Nougats to coordinate with the card using my Sizzix die from SU. The squares are created using my Lattice Spellbinders dies. The flower that is stamped is created with the True Friend Stamp set.

I hope this creation inspires you to create something for today's Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. If you do create using the above swatch of fabric, please leave a direct link here. If you upload your creation to SC, Please use the keyword DDIC. For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:

I have noticed that several of my regular followers have not signed up for my birthday blog candy, please know that I do have some birthday blog candy up until October 30. I decided this is one of the best ways to say thanks to all those who inspire me. You can click on the link on my top sidebar or scroll down to the next post.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments. It may seem like a small thing to you but it truly inspires me! Do not forget that tomorrow is the Midnight Madness Blog Hop with lots of fun and prizes at 8 a.m. EST. Hope to see you there!
