Inspired By Target

Howdy, crafty friends. One of the most asked questions I receive is, “Where do you find inspiration?”.

Welcome. The Little Tangles Blog announced a new challenge today… I thought it would be fun for the design team members to pair up on teams and create cards inspired by each other. Sweet Danielle was my team member and I chose this card she created as my inspiration… …and created this card… I just love Danielle’s CAS style. It’s something that I struggle at. I took inspiration from her and created my scene...
