Inspiration Challenge




Hello and happy Saturday, everyone!! I have been MIA for a few days...went to Ft. Worth to help a friend who had knee surgery on Tuesday. Everytime we get on I35, I know why I hate to leave the house!!! People drive sooo crazy anymore!! They drive like maniacs...yikes...you would think they had a death wish!!! Anyway....

I had to crack up when I saw the inspiration website for today!! The Artfull Bras Project is an exhibit of forty-nine one-of-a-kind works of art created by the members of Quilters of South Carolina to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors. I won't tell you what my DH said when he first saw the bras....heeheehee!! I had a hard time picking just one but I did narrow it down to the New Life design by Ann Abby. I loved all the springy colors and butterflies!! I used the Calendar Chicks stamp from Stamper's Dream. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. Flower Soft was added to the bunny ears and punched butterflies, flourishes, flower brads, prima with button, and ribbon finish it off.


The closeup shows the Flower Soft on the bunny ears....gotta love those sweet little Calendar Chicks!!!
