Inspired By All The Little Things Featuring Michele Ferguson

Hello!  This is Karren and welcome to Inspired By All The Little Things! This is a weekly inspiration challenge blog and each week we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!

This week I have invited...
Michele Ferguson of I Card Everyone

I'm sure most people know Michele - as well as being an amazing card-maker, she is also an incredibly friendly and generous supporter of this little hobby of ours.
I asked Michele to share a bit about herself...

1. What is the name of your blog? When and why did you start it?

I Card Everyone! is the name of my blog ... a cheeky switch on the sign posted anywhere in the U.S. where one would buy liquor! HA! and me who doesn’t drink [often]. I started making cards to say the things that were in my heart ... blogging as a way to enter card challenges, and this to hone my skills!

2. What is your style of card making?

CAS and fun is my chosen style.  I have been honored with the moniker: Queen of Embossing – a role I do not take lightly!

3. Who inspires you as a designer?

I’m often inspired by amy Tsuruta, Lisa Elton, and Donna – love amy’s sense of fun, Lisa’s feminine touch, and what’s NOT to love about Ms. Mikasa, I ask you?
4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers?

As a team member at CAS[E] this Sketch, I do love to create from a sketch, but I’m often seriously inspired by photos – like this one from Inspired by All the Little Things, and others from Fusion, and The Heart Desires.
5. Share something about yourself that we may not know?
I actually wrote to Hallmark to ask if I could write sentiments for them!!!  Totally rejected, UNLESS I wanted to move to Kansas City – wish I’d known Laurie Willison then... I might have considered it!

Here is Michele's card using this week's inspiration!

The challenge designers have also created a card for this week's inspiration! These ladies just inspire me SO much!!! I hope you will play along with us this week! We would love to have you join us!
