Twinkling Tuesday: Inspired by Traditions

Good morning girls!! Sorry I'm late in getting my Twinkling Tuesday card up today. This will be short and sweet as I have so many things to do. We have another Temporary Twinkie offering a challenge this week - Jameson is Rebecca's son and he offered us an inspiration challenge, complete with picture and story. Head over to the Twinkling Tuesday blog as I'm sure it is there. Or for sure on Rebecca's blog.


The picture was Minnie Mouse as a bride and Mickey Mouse as an explorer with a really cute story of what happened to Mickey's tuxedo. The white is in honor of the wedding dress and the kraft base is inspired by Mickey's look. Since it was a wedding theme I also thought of that old saying that all brides think about: Something Old...you get the idea. And since I have a full to-do list I needed a QUICK card - this took about 15 minutes total. Love it when that happens!


Something Old: vintage dictionary page for butterfly

Something New: white embossed sticker

Something Borrowed: sketch for this week's Clean & Simple challenge

Something Blue: that gorgeous flower. I got it from 2RedBananas. It is like VELVET!!! So awesome and a perfect match to Baja Breeze. It's a super bargain too as you get a ton of flowers for 99 cents!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be around to visit later this evening. Much later. Be sure to visit the rest of the Twinklettes - you know they are just awesome talented and will have beautiful things to share! Links in my sidebar!

If you haven't been by the Cuttlebug Challenge blog lately - please do so. We have a survey going about what you would love to see in the Cuttlebug line. Not often that you get a direct line to a manufacturer so take advantage of it. There are TWO sneak peeks listed in the post now and when we hit 1000 followers we have a few more to show. We were given a goal of 5000 surveys so help us spread the word!!

Have a beautiful day!!

OK, i have to admit, I didn't see the inspiration at first but what a neat take on the challenge. the something old.. poem, the colours, you really had to think hard about this! AMazing to see that card come from that challenge!

Jameson said...

that was a very nice card. I didn't realize at first that it involved Mickey and minnie but my mom read it to me and I heard that it represents the wedding.
