What inspires you?

       Hello again everyone. For my second post today I was surfing around and found an awesome blog site with a challeng that I just couldn't pass up! The website is Getting Cricky with K. Andrew. For her Simply Sunday challenge we are to make something that Inspires us.
       I recently got a new toy (just love the craft store toys..don't you! LOL). Since I do alot of scrapbooking I didn't own a scoreboard. While on a trip to Hobby Lobby, I decided to by the M.S.scoreboard. I have been trying to make cards off and on since I started my blog in October last year. I have been using whatever I had on hand to make the creases and flatten them down (I'm sure you know how that goes crafters get inventive).
        Now on to my card for today:
EDIT: I am also entering this over at craftingmisfit...... it is "a new season a new skill blog hop"
you can enter your creation and tell about something new to you. So my new is the M.S. scoreboard.
Which I love, it has a home for all the pieces (considering I am not the most organized person lol). That helps me out ALOT. It even gives instruction on how to create different cards and a box. How great is that!
I also got it for 40% off so it really is a good deal. I think it ended up being about 12 bucks!

The paper stack is  DCWV Luxury Stack
and Colorbok Pearlecent
Ribbon is a satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby
The border and corner punch is a MS Rings set
(also a new toy, hubby helped me get it with a 40% off coupon!! Isn't he the sweetest:)
and last but not least the stamp is one that I got from a whole bag of stamps that my sister(another sweetie)  bought me from E-Bay
Thanks so much for stopping by
(:(: SMILES :):)

So, what do you think of the score board? Is it worth it? I've been thinking of getting one...and, I absolutely adore this card! It is the perfect Easter card!! I would love to have one to send to my sweet Grandmother, my prayer warrior!! :) Great job!

Your story about "using whatever you have on hand" sounds all too familiar! LOL. I have been folding my cards along my CM cutting utensil and then using my Cricut spatula to flatten the creases.
Love the card and it is quite refreshing to blog with others who let the Lord inspire them!

Thanks for sharing this card. I need to make some confirmation cards and I think I have found my inspiration. And I have the Inspried Hearts cartridge.
