Art 'n Soul's Inspiration Station continues with the "Bird Crazy" stamp set from Stampers' Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection. We've turned 'bird crazy' ourselves as we work with these whimsical characters.

I've been thinking about a 'fishing' frame or card since I was recently inspired by a photo my granddaughter sent me of my 20-month old great-granddaughter at her fishing derby. Her great-grandpa Ron would be beaming because he was a fisherman-at-heart.

From the Memory Box blog, here's a very simple card using one of their new stencils and the baby-wipe technique.

So be sure to stop in and catch all of the inspiration we're going to experience with Helene using those beautiful stamps and stencils from Magenta! And we'll see the new color medium Helene will introduce . . . if you're around, you might be able to purchase it, too!
