You Inspire Me in Black and White

It is a crisp, cool Autumn morning here in Massachusetts today. And by 'cool' I mean FREEZING FREAKING COLD, BATMAN!!!! Who the HECK ordered weather in the 40's? I mean, I'm all for fall, but let's actually have FALL and not head straight into winter, K? K. Thanks. Good...now that we got THAT little matter out of the way...

It is Friends With Flair Friday and I have decided to go black tie for the occasion. HA! Yup. Black and white. Just. Black. And. White. I kinda love that combination. Just say'n.

You Inspire Me


*sigh* Black and white can be SO pretty!!!!! And tell me...no...really....doesn't that birdcage image just SCREAM to be stamped in black and white? I think it TOTALLY does. totally. Just say'n.

You Inspire Me (detail)


The stamp sets are the I Adore You set by Echo Park for Unity and the Heartfelt Sentiments set (Which happens to be just SO convenient to have on hand! I have this sentiment set, a sentiment set from Close To My Heart, and one from Hero Arts and without those three sets I simply do not KNOW what I would do! Love them!) The twine is from The Twinery.

I am linking my card to the Sky Challenge at Charisma Cardz, Shabby Chic Girls' Club Ooh La La Linky, and Little Red Wagon's Twine Challenge.

So...leave a comment, let me know what you think and have a super happy FRIDAY!!!! Come back tomorrow to see a GORGEOUS new release from Retro Cafe Art Gallery!
