Three Amigos Blog Hop February 2019 - Inspiration Photo!

Welcome to the February Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge!  This month the challenge is based on this beautiful inspiration photo!  It's meant to inspire and not require... so what will inspire you?  Here's what I saw:

I was inspired by the colors... although I have very little pink in mine (except for that adorable!), the blues.. the golds...that orangey color..the gold sentiment...and the circular shape of it reminded me of the sun ray decoration and then the background paper reminded me of the pattern on the pillow.  I love these papers from the Pink and Main Be Brave 6x6 pad.

This is a birthday card for my dad.  He takes care of our dogs for us during the week so this cutie pie from The Cat's Pajamas Whee stamp set is perfect to deliver the message!  He's so excited!  And do you know how long I've wanted that Happy Birthday Circle Frame from MFT??  I finally found it at Doodlebugs and it was perfect for this card!

I thought it would be fun to have him jumping over a bunch of presents and the Presents dies from TCP were perfect!  The bows are beautiful and love all of the different shapes of them.  I used the two box dies that come in the set and then one additional square die from my stash to make one more size of box, cut them from some more of the patterned papers from the paper pad and then layered and stacked them.

I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes this week and the Outlawz Twisted Thursday which is always anything goes and this week's twist is Die Cuts!  I'm also playing along with Anything Goes over at Die Cuttin Divas... my friend Julie brought this one to my attention!  You should check them out!

That's it for me!  Now be sure to head on over to Susan and Donna's blogs to see how they were inspired by the photo!  And stop on over at the Three Amigos Blog to see who won January's prize and play along in February!

Thanks for stopping!

I love how we all pulled something completely different from the photo! And your card, as always, is an inspiration :-)

That dog is soooo cute, Lisa! Looks like my son's so I probably will have to get it one of these days :) I like that inspirational photo and how you used it!

I'm not so sure this looks like Slim, but it's adorable anyway even with that tongue hanging out, and Dad loved it.
