Inspiration Hop Day 1!!

The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop!!! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of deeply etched, pre-cut Gina K. Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!
I couldn't help myself, I was immediately drawn to these fun little images in Melanie's newest set and knew I had to make a card with them, they are too much fun!  The little spiders are heat embossed with a translucent embossing powder, I hope you can see it in the photo!

I had to use this sentiment on my first card with Theresa's newest set as it has special meaning to me!  My Dad used to say this quite often so it brings me comfort!  I just love this truck and it is a lot of fun to color.  I tried to make it look real old with rust here and there!  Hubs said I accomplished the look!


Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
