Lately, I haven't had any desire to stamp or create or clean or well, just about anything.  This is pretty indicative of this time of year.  The end of summer always makes me want to drag my feet, cross my arms and pout.  I don't want it to be over.  I love being home everyday with my kids.  I love corn on the cob.  I love stamping the day away.  I love swimming... you catch my drift.  So, when my sweet and super-talented friend Anne asked me to join her in making sample for today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers, I was ecstatic.  I took one look at the Patina website and loved it.  I had a hard time picking just one piece - so I made two!
The first thing I made was this card.  I was inspired by this Teal Botanical Pillow.

Next, I made a mixed media frame.I was inspired by this Green Tube Vase. Everytime I saw it I thought of some crayon art that I saw on Pinterest. I decided to combine the  two to create this mixed media frame.
I melted the crayons with an embossing gun, added some orange, silk poppies, bling and stamped that cute little bee.

Thanks for looking. I hope you can join us today with this challenge!!
