Specifically FYI

Happy Hellos!!!

I have had serious internet connection issues for the past couple of days. No sooner I log on, I'm kicked  out and today hasn't been any different. I don't know about you, but it's something when you wake-up in heat and humidity and go to bed in those same conditions. That's what I'm casting the blame on for my internet connection problems. I was already up and out and back in the house before one o'clock. The goal was by noon before the real heat and humidity hits. Mind you--I'm not complaining because I know winter will be here soon enough. I'm just blogging to you.

Today, I am participating in for the first time in For Your Inspiration aka FYI Challenge. I learned about this challenge from Keva over at Hownowbrownkow. If you have an opportunity, be sure to visit her site. There's a plethora of inspiration over there.

Before I reveal my card, I have to give credit to where credit is due. As many of you may remember, I hosted Michelle Zindorf and more than forty attendees for Michelle to teach her unique brayering techniques. Well, yesterday, I began to recall some of the techniques learned and I must say I was happy how my embossed tree turned out. Thanks for the inspiration Michelle.


Now, on with the inspirational photo..


...and this is what I was inspired to create....


I hope you found some inspiration at the gallery. If you did or saw something you like, be sure to let me know. As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Lorie - this is just fabulous - I love the ruffle ribbon, which seem to echo the steps. And the autumnal tree is fab! Great card.
