New Bird Word and card challenges...

Hello there, as I type this the thunder is rolling by another storm is on its way..  So I shall try and get this all posted in case the power goes down as can sometimes happen here in storms..

The new word for BIRD IS THE WORD is a good one.. it is INSPIRE..  a word that I find I use when I think of so many things.. One thing that inspires me is the beach, I love the waves rolling in and how awesome the ocean is.. so I have used a photo of me at the beach taken a few years ago..

The beach inspires me...
and a bit closer...
I hope you feel inspired to create a layout for this challenge!

And I have been creating some cards for some challenges too..

For CARDABILITIES #85  the sketch looks like..and my cards,  i did 2 using the sketch..

And for FEELING SKETCHY #72 the sketch looks like

and I created 2 cards using the sketch and my cards ..
 and the challenge for LETS GET SHABBY is to use BUTTONS!! I have quite a few buttons so I thought I would create a card to this challenge also.. another Christmas card!
I cut a Christmas tree from a die and decorated it with buttons and string of pearls!!
Well thanks so much for coming by, the rains are falling now and I better get off here!! Thanks for your comments too!!

    I too love the beach. Having just come back from Qld I find my thoughts just keep going back to my walks along the beach each morning. It is an amazing part of "mother nature". Love your pic and the beachy theme. Well done.
