Inspiration Challenge 330

Another amazing site for our inspiration challenge: Harabu House - an eclectic mix of home accents and decor and kids' stuff, and all sorts of really pretty stuff that you don't know you need until you see it, know what I mean? LOL! But what a feast for the eyes! I chose three:

This reminded me of this week's CASE study challenge - another opportunity for some nested die cuts - and who doesn't love pink and purple together (especially a little girl who still has a thank you card or two to write)?

And of course, I found some horse inspiration (from reindeer, I think):

Even from the back, this little guy reminds me of my little friend from church. He's 3 and determined and is the only boy who plays a tambourine in the group of timbrellists that I lead (more on that another day!)

But I've saved what I think is the best for last. I used a new alphabet from My Stamp Box and some copper embossing powder to transform this:

into this:

Incorrect word splitting aside, I think it's kind of cool (although if I had added another * in between happy and birthday, I could have had four rows of four to make a square! Oh, the things we think of AFTER!)

Did you hear that Canada is discontinuing the penny (the copper disks made me think of this). Now I live in a country that MAKES NO CENTS! Ha! Ha! (sorry!)

You're so punny! I personally love the horsey card - can't seem to get enough of that dancing horse!
