Moving to Pinterest Land and a Challenge

I decided this today! I tweeted it earlier just in case anyone needs me...that is where I will be!  I am packing up today and heading out! I decided to move there because the beds look so comfy and the flowers are gorgeous, the food seems amazing and the craft rooms? Well, they need me to come live in them! They are over the top amazing!  Then I found I had a moving partner! Amber is coming with me too!

Have you been to Pinterest yet? Well, if you haven't then you MUST! There is SO much inspiration there for everything! Cards, your home, food, make-up, hair, nails, photography! I could go on!  If you are stuck and need some card making mojo, you need to stop by! I found this....


...re-pinned it just  a little while ago...sat down at my table and made this...

That comforter with the green and the white Damask!  LOVE!  Instant inspiration!

I so needed this today!  A good does of inspiration!  Go there if you are in a rut and you will find some amazing pictures!  Amber tweeted me back and said she was making a "Moving to Pinterest Land" board!  So I did the same thing!  We are pinning our favorite places and spaces!  Lots to see!  This will help out as I am about to decorate my new Craft Room!

Thanks for stopping in!  Now go check out Pinterest if you haven't already!  If you are on you can follow me HERE!  If you do I can follow you back!  It's so fun to see everyone's pins!  OH...they have an iPhone app too!  That makes it super easy to check things out when you have a little spare time!

Now here is a little challenge!  Go find some inspiration from Pinterest and make a card!  Come back and link it up!  I will leave the links up until Monday May 30th!  Spread the word!   If I have enough participation there may be a little prize involved!  I can't wait to see what you create!


(And I have been spelling it wrong all day....just now figured it out! In all the Pinterest excitement, I left an e out!  Oops!)

Beautiful card, Laurie! Perfect take on the photo :) I must be the dumbest person on Pinterest! I have a whole lotta friends, but cannot figure out how to do a thing on there! lol...

Chris said...

Gorgeous! Laurie, you come up with the most wonderful best ideas! :)

Such an adorable card Laurie - the perfect creation from that heavenly inspiration pic ;)
I'm *soooo* trying not to get sucked in to Pinterest. It is just going to be the biggest time-drain I can imagine! Like some kind of black hole that I'll never be able to escape from ;)
I know it would be amazing for inspiration but I really love spending my spare time visiting everyone's blogs so I don't want to have to give that up, IYKWIM?
But it will probably happen soon enough! TFS your stunning card, hugs, Ruth S

I LOVE green, it's my favorite colour so just loving that picture!! Fabulous use of the picture on your card too. Love the touches of bling, damask and darling tag. Great card.

Lindsay said...

This is just heavenly Laurie! I love the damask on that card front and the ribbon and roses and pearls are the perfect touch!

Keva said...

That card is gorgeous, Laurie! Just beautiful. I love that damask especially. I've never been to Pinterest. Honestly, I've been trying to stay away from it. I waste enough time on the internet. Do I REALLY need another place to go?!?! LOL

I'll play along, but I will NOT start going there. Nope, no way, not going to do it...probably. lol

Amber said...

Damask. Pinterest and a Beautiful Card!? I mean, what's not to love! I'm definitely coming to Pinterest Land with you and I am definitely playing in this challenge with you! I already have an image in mind. We are going to have the most fabulous little village set up in Pinterest Land. I love that you started this challenge, too! Our little Twitter exchange has grown legs and I love it. Now we just need to figure out how to be Pinterest friends!!!!

Hi Amber!
Looks like it is going to get a bit crowded...'cause I'm coming to! Pinterest has become my latest addiction, obsession or whatever! I could spend all day on there, but then of course it would defeat the purpose of all the inspiration coursing through me!!! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful creations!

Susie said...

Hello! Did you announce a winner for your Pinterest challenge? Maybe I just missed it!
I love your cards, and get a lot of ideas from your blog. Thanks SO much for sharing!
