Tag Tuesday's Inspire Me

My blogging friend Shar refers to this as a Queen of the Last Minute type of creation, LOL!!  Yes, once again it's Tag Tuesday on Monday.  The challenge this week (until tomorrow) is Inspire Me! - to use a quote or word that we find inspiring.  I loved this Thoreau quote from Serendipity Stamps the moment I saw it (and I've just noticed, it's on sale, 20% off, through today!).  A sort of "Carpe Diem" type of sentiment I suppose, but it reminds me not to "wish my life away" looking forward in time, but rather to enjoy what the moment has to offer.  The tag is misted with a couple of Glimmer Mists, stamped with some seasonal images, and dressed up with some Hero Arts flowers and some leaf diecuts.  And tied off with crinkly seam binding from Bluebird Lane Etsy shop, of course.  Be sure to check out the other artwork done for this challenge on Kard Krazy - it is very truly inspiring, in more ways than one! And while you're there, congratulate Louise on all of her stunning work that has gone to publication at Stampington! :) Hope your Monday is a happy one!
