CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

from our Design Team Coordinator, Jessica Fick:
It's time for another GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Team Blog Hop!
Each artist was asked to design their project by drawing inspiration from these photos of the AMAZING Christmas Cookie Bouquet the CSS Team sent to Gina's DT Coordinator Jessica Fick:

Click on these links to see what the participating Designers have prepared for us tonight:
Everyone's projects will be added to the StampTV gallery and Idea Center over the next few days. You can search for them by using this tag: cssjf4

My inspiration for these cards was based primarily on the colors used...there are some adorable stamp sets from GKD that would be perfect for this inspiration challenge (and I am betting the other designers have used them) but I dont have them...sad face...goal for 2010!!! buy all the sets I dont have...hmmmm...for this I would need 2011 through 2015 ...LOL (:
Enjoy - hope you find something here to inspire you!

Hi Linda,
These cards are stunning. The colour are so bright and the papers etc are magnificent. If I had to pick a favourite it would be the first one. I love the sentiment - you really come up with some thought provoking sentiments on your cards.
Hugs,
