Inspired By All the Little Things #83 Featuring Cat Craig

Hello, Darnell here to welcome you to Inspired By All The Little Things 
and the first challenge for the month of April
This is a bi-weekly inspiration challenge blog and each month
we feature a wonderful designer who inspires us as an artist!

Here is our photo inspiration for this challenge:
This month I have invited my friend, the talented and lovely Cat Craig 
of Cat Luvs Paper to join us for the month of April!
1. When and why did you start your blog?  I started it in 2012 after I began playing in the Hero Arts scrambles over at Flickr. All the group were so kind and encouraging of my efforts, I decided to get out and share my cards with a wider audience.

2. What is your style of card making? My card style is mostly clean and simple these days. I might go to clean and layered too. They are a lot less fussy than when I first began making cards.

3. What "little thing" inspired you about this week's photo? I was inspired by the line of flowers in both bold and soft colors. The photo immediately reminded me of the Hero Arts Tall Flowers stamp.
4. Tell us something about yourself that we may not know? I met my husband of almost 10 years, fourteen years ago when we both played Texas Holdem poker online at He was always cracking me up with his comments in the chat box … and he was a very good poker player. I lived in California at the time and he lived in Maryland. I cannot imagine that we would have met without that game site.  My Dad is the reason I played the poker game and he claims full credit for hubs and I meeting each other.

Here is Cat's awesome card for this week's challenge:
The challenge designers have also created a card for this week's inspiration!
