Announcing March's Final Friday Giveaway

Hi blog peeps! Hope you're having a great weekend so far. Are you ready to see what's in store for this month's Final Freebie Friday Giveaway? Here it is: This month, I'm offering 2 stamp sets! They are the Organic Grace and Love Bug stamp sets, which are perfect for spring! Hope you like them.

The lucky winner will be announced on my blog on Friday, March 26th. Here are the rules to play {enforced by the honor system ;) }
1. Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Pacific Time, Wed, March 24, 2010.
2. On your comment, please make sure to include a valid email address or a blog URL (where I can leave a comment or have a way of contacting you). For those of you that are uncomfortable with leaving an email in a post, you can write your info like this: yourname at emailaccount dot com.
3. One comment per person please. :)
4. Anyone can play - international visitors welcome!
You can leave me a comment about anything, or you can answer this question: Where does your creative inspiration for your crafting come from? I know this is a broad question, but feel free to share a few things if you'd like. I think I get a lot of my creative inspiration from fashion trends and textiles as well as architectural elements. I love going through catalogs I get in the mail and translating clothes or furniture concepts into my card and papercraft projects. I think that's fun. Blurfing is also something that gives me inspiration - it's amazing to see everyone's different styles and how they influence me! I definitely think my papercrafting has evolved from all of these sources.

I can't wait to read about what inspires you. Thanks for visiting :)

Hi Rose, Love the fabric! Excited to see what lovely things you do with it. I get lots of inspiration from other crafters, like yourself. Then magazines, and if you keep your eyes open, just about everywhere! I saw a great design idea from a little girls dress the other day. Going to try that one soon.
Thanks for the chance to win the stamp sets. Those buggies sure are cute!

My inspiration comes from bloggers, like you, and also from the vast number of sketches out there today! I love the clean and simple blog and the weekly sketch they provide. It is a wonderful "jumping off" place and it feels so good to create something new, even if you do start with a sketch. Thanks for the lovely blog and great ideas!

Hi, Rose, thank you for giveaway.

My inspiration comes from 3 ways: fashion, nature and sketches from challenges. :)

I read a lot about trends (especially colour) - it's very useful in creating jewelry, but intresting in cardmaking too.

Wish you a lot of inspiration everywhere. :)
