Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Blog Candy

Hi Stampers!

Hope your weekend was a great one!! We are supposed to get MORE SNOW tonight! Yuck! We are in the 5" - 7" range which is what we got the other day too. I have to work at my other job at the Police Department tonight which will mean a snow ordinance and lots of cars being towed for the plows to go through. Fun Fun Fun! LOL! I would much rather have the night off and be home in my jammies crafting - especially after I get to see all the gorgeous projects that the Design Team have done for the Inspirational Post today!! But first, before I can show you, we need to chose our winner from last week's comments...

Now on to today's blast of inspiration from our talented Design Team! Here we go....

Athina did such a gorgeous job with this! I love the rich, country colors and I love how she folded one corner of the Designer Paper for her layout! The burlap and the lace are such an awesome touch! I adore the little ticket saying with the distressed edges, super cute and goes with this image perfectly! Her coloring is so beautiful, check out the pleats she did on the shirt! Guess what a Creative GENIUS Athina is? That cute window that little Mimosa is sitting in is created with the Die-Namics Rounded Banner Stax! Total ♥

Paper Smooches 'Salutations'
MME 'Be Happy' papers

Lydia has been blowing me away with her absolute GORGEOUS Elisabeth Bell projects! Her soft pretty pastel coloring and layout choices are so beautiful! I love these Designer papers that she chose and the way she used the center of the Doily Duo Die-Namics for her sentiment! It looks awesome! Her ribbon and charm add a touch of elegance. Totally Love this!!

Bo Bunny Papers called Love Notes

WOWZERS! This is such a beautiful no lines coloring project! Shanna does such a stunning job coloring her images, just blows me away! I have bought a few of her cards, just so I could see it up close and let me tell you...even more stunning in person! Her shading and the pleats look so awesome! I have this technique on my "to try someday" list however first I need to master with lines coloring - LOL! If you want to snag up some of Shanna's gorgeous work, she has some listed for sale on ebay :) She has some beautiful cards and stunning Mini Albums! Take a look :)

This is TOO CUTE!! What a super fun image and I love how Marcy paper pieced her outfit! What a perfect pattern to use also! The colors are so pretty and that arrow is too cool! I love this layout too and check out the major bling flower center! Gorgeous! This is such an awesome design! Love Love LOVE it!   Wow! The Design Team were on their A-Game again this week! What super gorgeous and fun designs! I am hoping to get down to my crafty space and do some crafting today too, especially after seeing these inspiring cards! Amazing job ladies!! I loved each and every one! You gals ROCK!  

I do want to take a moment to ask you to keep our Design Team Member - Dangina Martinez in your thoughts and prayers. Her little boy broke his arm in 2 places - OUCH! Let's send him some quick healing thoughts and hope that things go ok for him! That has to be quite painful for him!   

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to leave a comment so you can be in this week's drawing! There is also time to play in our challenge this week - to have a tag on your project or create a tag - your choice :) There are some awesome prizes up for grabs there too!   

Happy Stampin! Laura & The Loves Rubberstamps Design Team
