Inspired by All the Little Things Featuring Rosemary Dennis

Hello 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 Rosemary Dennis.  Rosemary is well-known in the blogosphere.  She is very generous with her commenting on other people's work and creates the most beautiful cards herself.

I asked Rosemary to share a bit about herself...

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

The name of my blog is Hey There... rosigrl!  I started it in May of 2010.  Prior to that I had started a Flickr photostream and a gallery on Splitcoaststampers and was happy with that. As I got more interested in paper crafting and thought about maybe trying out for design teams I realized that having a blog would be more of an asset then just my photostream and gallery.  It was a bit scary starting the blog and it took me forever to do my first few posts, but now I can't imagine paper crafting without my blog!

2. What is your style of card making?
My style of card making tends toward clean and simple.  Even when I do lots of layering I still like things to be clean looking.  

3. Who inspires you as a designer?
I really admire Debby Hughes. She has a beautiful clean style, but she always has unexpected elements in her design that take them to the next level. I also really admire my in real life friend, Lisa Lara.  Lisa has mad coloring skills and her CAS designs are always super clever and creative!

4. What sort of things inspire you as a card maker? Photos? Sketches? Other designers?
I'm often inspired by my stamp, dies and other supplies like patterned paper, but I do love a good color or sketch challenge.  I don't have a Pinterest board or anything like that so if I find myself lacking for inspiration I just check out a challenge or two to see what the design team and participants have created. 
5. Share something about yourself that we may not know?

One thing most people don't know about me (probably even my good friends!) is that I am totally hooked on shows like Ancient Aliens and Finding Bigfoot!  Anytime a show like that is on I just have to watch!!  I find the theories put forth in both shows really interesting although not always believable!! 

Here is Rosemary's gorgeous 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!
