Rosie Posie

Hello there, I bought PTI's Rosie Posie when it first came out a while ago and I don't think I ever used it. That is until now, I combined it with Rosie Posie Step 2 to make my mum a Birthday Card. It was a special Birthday for her but I didn't add the number on the front as I just didn't think it went with the design. Instead I decorated the inside and added it in there. The front of the card has been inspired by this gorgeous card by Ashley Cannon Newell.


I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that the crafting world is a big community and we all take inspiration from each other. I know that looking at other card makers/crafters cards is what makes me a better card maker myself. That is what makes this community what it is. I do, however, feel that it is nice to acknowledge where that inspiration has come from where applicable. I have seen a few cards recently around blog land that have been re-makes of my fellow crafters cards; no acknowledgment has been given and that makes me sad. That person has put a lot of work into their card, I am sure that they do not mind someone else taking inspiration from them; I am sure that they are honoured like I would be but I feel that it is only polite to share where that inspiration came from.

Where possible I always do this and like I said above, I feel that it is nice etiquette to do so. I know that most of you do too, those that have taken inspiration from little 'ole me and I thank you for that! Thank you for your time and visiting me as always :0)

  4. Gorgeous card Michelle... I have that stamp set too so must give it a go! And you may just have cost me a little more, as I love the sentiment stamps.

    I agree with the acknowledgement bit too... good manners.

    Btw... how did you get on with the Splendorgel card?
