Today's card features a Sale-a-Bration stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s, Madison Avenue, paired with a Spring catalog set, Feel Goods.  As I walked into my stamp room this morning, I had the Feel Goods stamp set on my mind.  I love the sentiments in this stamp set – they a fabulous – and fabulous is not a word that I normally use on a Monday morning.

My hubby was wonderful and made my coffee for me before he left for work – I love this man!  So kiddo is off to school, fresh coffee in the mug – let's hit the stamp room.  As I started creating, there was something on every layer – like a speck of something.  It was weird, no matter what piece of card stock I picked up, there it was.  As the frustration grew, and the coffee got knocked over – it was almost time to pack it in for the morning and get back in bed – did anyone else feel like that?

So my bespectacled friends will get this – I took my glasses off and set them on the Whisper White card stock that was laying on the table – and saw the speck.  It was on my glasses!  And what was it?  Summer Starfruit re-inker!!!  Signs of a die hard stamper, right?  It made me laugh so hard, and I thought to myself that this was definitely a Monday! 

Back to stamping then, I instantly knew that I wanted to use Summer Starfruit – I mean, it was a must at that point, and I LOVE polka dots – Patio Party DSP it was and then the card grew from there.

Why did I tell this story today?  I often get asked where I get my inspiration – and I wish that I had this fantastic, scientific, flowchart, step-by-step process to share with you, but in my wierd little world, this is exactly how it happens.  

I love the way that this card came together in the end, bright & cheerful, and just perfect for what I need.
