WOW! This one was really difficult for me! I know, I know....it was supposed to be easy!!! But, I must be the most unobservant person on the planet because I kept forgetting to look around to find a source of "inspiration!!!!" You see, there's inspiration everywhere....in catalogs, in your cupboards, the patterns, or prints in your clothing....anywhere you look. The key here is to LOOK! Well, I finally remembered yesterday morning to look around a bit, but nothing hit me. I even went to the supermarket yesterday hoping that some of the packaging might give me an idea. But, of course, I just found what I needed in there and forgot to look for ideas before I came home. DUH! It wasn't until I was making dinner last night and thinking that I might just have to skip this week's edition of the Bloggers' Challenge when I spotted the wrapper on the loaf of bread. (You see, I was making Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato Sandwiches.....which are just the BEST because Jersey fresh tomatoes are at their peak!!) Anyway, it's the wrapper that inspired me. So after dinner, I went and played, but nothing seemed to be working out.
Then while lying in bed, I suddenly knew what the card would look like. (Don't we ALL do our best thinking in bed?!!) So, this morning when I had a chance to play, this is what I came up with. Of course, if you look at the packaging and turn it around, you may see some similarity....but that was the Challenge: to become "inspired" by something, not necessarily duplicate it!
