All Eyes On - STALKING!

Haa Ha!

No, not REALLY - We're CASE-ing the Wplus9 Flickr gallery!

{Have you checked it out before? - Get ready to swoon!}

But I digress - EACH member of our Wplus9 Desing Studio team
has picked a creation from the gallery that INSPIRED her! Course,
it should be noted that THERE are far too MANY to get lost in! We have
some of the MOST talented gals sharing their work, just because
they are NICE that way....! Or should I say generous! Anywhoo,
if you have the chance to check out from WHERE we were inspired
and HOW we got where WE went - I'm sure you, too, will be inspired!

I fell in LOVE with one of my FAVORITE super stars from blogdom and BEYOND...

The incredible, Sarah Martina Parker!

Ooooooowwwww! I DO so love that girl! Her inky, layered, billowing absolutely
DREAMY creations have been delighting me since I first hit the keyboard with this
blogging thing, several years ago - UNLESS your mouse is broken, I'm sure you've
seen her amazing work! Aside from her breath taking talent and OBVIOUS expertise
at wrangling materials, I was inspired, because her style is SO challenging to ME!!!!

And SINCE I was inspired... I gave myself an extra challenge - make a FATHER'S DAY CARD!

{I know!}

Crazy, right?

Well, all I can say is that I HAD a ball! It was SUCH a great {double} challenge!
AND, I'm hoping it will prove to inspire YOU, too!
I'm going to guess that each of us has interpreted our
muse in ways that are unique to our personal styles and yet,
stretches us... creatively and OTHER ways... {!}
But in ALL ways - fun, fun, fun! - Case in point:


Woo-hooooo! I hope it was a GLORIOUS Father's Day in your world!

{And if, he hit the links, wet a line or just took a nap...
I hope YOU got some craft ON! Yeeee HAWWW!}
