Lin - Day 4 and LONG POST

Hi! Welcome to Day 4 of inspiration with Lin! Check out this beautiful fall card:

Lin has such a keen eye for color. I LOVE those purple mums with the orange pumpkins. The polka dot texture on the pumpkins looks great with Lin's subtle shading to give the pumpkins dimension. I also really like Lin's design choice to feature this vignette on a simple white background.

Here is my card inspired by Lin's pretty card: And, my friends, I have an exciting announcement! Lin has just started a blog! You are going to want to hop on over there and add it to your favs! Here's the link.

Okay, next thing on the list. (I warned you this was a long post!) One of the most innovative stampers I know, Sue, gave me my first blog award!! How fun!


It's for people who bring smiles into your life. Now I have to share five things about myself and pass it on to 5 people who make me smile.
1. I grew up in South Dakota, but I left the Black Hills for the Arizona desert. I miss my family, but I definitely do NOT miss the snow.

2. My husband and I have three very spoiled dogs. They are quite the crew--
Meet Dafne (yes, she sleeps with her tongue hanging out!):
and Toffee:

and Loki:


3. I am a middle school teacher.
4. I hardly ever cook. Good thing my hubby is a great cook and doesn't mind frozen dinners!
5. I am afraid of heights and HATE driving through mountains.
Now for 5 people who make me smile. This was so hard because I think I could list 50! Here we go:

Thanks again for stopping by and for all of your sweet comments. I have to say, I just grin ear to ear when I read all of the kind things you guys say! :)

Supplies

Stamps: Flower (Tim Holtz Visual Artistry), Text (Inkadinkado); Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Fresco Chalk Finish Dye Inkpad (Stampa Rosa), Making Memories; Other: JoAnn's Craft Essentials Clear Embossing Powder, Misc. Cardstock, Thread, and Pearl, Dimensional Adhesive

Thank you Jill for the award, you always put a smile on my face! And we have so much in common: 3 spoiled dogs, I taught middle school PE and computer, I don't cook either (the hubs is multi-talented). I can't wait to check out Lin's blog, thanks for the heads up on that! Now can I just say the cards today are very inspiring!

Hey Jill!
So pretty! Love the colors you added! Looks like you did some stitching...did you? The distressing is awesome, love the dark rich colors!

Your doggies are adorable!

Jacqueline said...

Gorgeous cards Jill - love how you were inspired!
Thanks for thinking of me - the only thing I share with you is that I don't like cooking either! The only difference is I don't have a DH who likes cooking...like you have! You are lucky!

Jill, love Lin's beautiful card and your card is absolutely stunning. I'm so delighted to have this wonderful masterpiece - thank you so much! I love it.

It was fun reading the 5 things about you. Your dogs are adorable - such a funny photo of Dafne!! Great hubby too - you'll have to get him to pass some recipes on to my hubby!

Lin said...

What a cast of characters live with you! (I mean your dogs :)))) I'm sure they all have their own special personality. Such fun!

Virginia L. said...

Glad to know more about you, Jill! Your dogs are super cute and fun! You are keeping very busy teaching at the middle school! I love kids of that age! Wish I could share some good food with you :)
