Friday Callenge 29: Inspired At Home

Welcome to Friday Challenge 29!

Hostess: Cindy (Mothermark)

Challenge: Inspired at Home

Details: Pick a decor item in your home or a treasured gift that inspires you to make a card in its honor. If possible take a picture of your card with that item. If not, just give us a description of it.

Be sure to use FC29 in the gallery when you upload your project!
Here are my samples:


Number 1 - Well, what can I say! This is the silly teapot that started the whole Teapot Tuesday idea! Need I say more? Snort!



Number 2 - This is a fun little purse that my sister sent me as a gift. Sometimes when I open gifts I am so thrilled about the prospect that (I can make a card like this!!!) that I have to be real careful and remember to thank the person giving me the gift! Yikes!



Number 3 - This is a fun little vase that my boss and his wife brought me back from Mexico. It was one of those (I can make a card like this!!!) gifts so I had to give them this card as a thank you because quite possibly I forgot to thank them at the time! See, I told ya you have to be careful when you are obsessed!

Okay, I double dawg dare ya! Find something in your home that you love and let's see what fun you come up with! Once you start looking around, you will find your home is filled with inspiring items! I am hoping we won't have anyone inspired by the texture of the leftover casserole in the fridge, the toilet paper your neighbor's naughty high school kids left in the tree in your front yard or heaven forbid, the inspiring shape of your toilet seat! Yikes! Have fun!
Click here to see how everyone else was inspired by the fun stuff in their home.

Teapot Tuesday Wednesday!!

You're invited to a teaparty!

Quoted from Mothermark herself:

This is my story!

1. It's a good day for ducks! Quack, Quack!! Isn't this teapot a kick? I got this teapot in the mail from a friend and fellow Blogger, LeAnn. LeAnn sent me two teapots. This fun little duckpot and a beautiful floral one which I am excited to use in my challenge too!

2. I thought it would be a good day for ducks! The leftover bees have thinned out, the bunnies have moved on and the only thing we have to worry about this week is ducks in the cups. You know how they are, always looking for some body of water. Should we do iced tea so we don't burn their butts?

3. I love both of my new teapots and I am thrilled to have received them from LeAnn!

If you are inspired by Cindy's teapot....please play along! TPT30 is the code to add to your card and upload to our gallery!! We'd love to see what YOU come up with!! ~michelle~
