70 Cards 'Til Christmas #14

For this card, I have been inspired by the cover of our Stampin’ UP! Catalog (a great source of inspiration, I might add).

Sometimes we try to come up with something super different and unique and look for inspiration anywhere, when the inspiration could be at our fingertips! 

I think we need to be constantly on the lookout and when that moment of inspiration strikes us, it’s important to write it down (anywhere, a piece of scrap paper, a napkin) or take a picture. Sometimes, if I like a certain combination of colors, I write them down and use them to make a card.

Anyway, our catalog is amazing! I call it our bible (without disrespecting the Bible). It has it all.
