Friday Fun Inspiration for My Friends With Flair!

Good Morning!  It is a beautiful (but cold) and sunny day here in Virginia.  I am sitting in my stamp room and watching my "gardeners" (aka the property management team) mulch the flower beds.  Aaahhh.  Have I mentioned I love my new place?  At my old place not only would I have had to mulch everything myself, but I would have to BUY everything myself.  Now I have more time for stamping and other things that I like to do!  I know that's not why you are here, but it just made me so happy for a minute, I had to share!  :)
Today's Friday Fun Challenge is brought to us by the most wonderful and fantabulous (I know that's not a real word but I had to make one up to fit how awesome she is) Christi Snow!  She chose this book cover for our inspiration today.  I must say- I would read that book from the cover alone although my Mom always told me not to judge a book by it's cover.  But it's a REALLY cool cover!




All the green and yellow and red in the picture made me think of ladybugs.  Why?  I have no idea, but that's the great part about inspiration.  You don't have to know why.  I used the Unity Kit, Rockin' It Unity Style from March 2010.  I love this kit- it's so cute.  I am glad I finally have time to put it to some good ink. 


Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls Blogs (see below) to see what this picture inspired them to create.  This is also my Unity Friends with Flair post- be sure to visit the Unity Blog to find out what other peeps are posting.  Have a great day!

I'm so happy you are happy in your new place.

I never even saw the red in the cover, you did a great job interpreting this piece. I love how we each took something different from it.
