Happy Anniversary Too! + Giveaway

Today David and I are celebrating our anniversary. It was 13 years ago since we said 'I Do'. I would normally show you my anniversary card now, but I submitted it to Paper Crafts Magazine this morning. I won't find out until next week whether or not it is going to be picked for publication. In case it doesn't I'll post it at later date.

However, I do have some masterpieces to show you... On Saturday we, the children, David and I all created our anniversary cards. The children are always very excited to show us what they've made, as they try and do it as independently as possible (albeit with a little help). Are you ready?

This is David's creation (Rebecca told him less is more :D):


Here's Rebecca's card:


This is what Ruben made:


See the little Fenix sign on the card? That's where we'll be having dinner tonight. Afterwards we'll be going to see Knight and Day.

And finally Renee's card:


Since we are celebrating today,  I would like to give a little something to one of you... 

It's the 3rd anniversary limited edition stamp set from Papertrey Ink. For some reason I received two sets, and I obviously only need one. This giveaway is open to everyone (including overseas readers). All you have to do is leave a comment on this blogpost telling me when you start a project, and you are looking for inspiration where would you go to find it. Is it someone's blog, a website, maybe a magazine? I'm intrigued to know. Sounds simple enough, don't you think?


update: deadline for the giveaway is end of day Friday, July 23rd .


Thank you for stopping by.

What a lovely stamp set! I look at various blogs when I'm looking for stamping inspiration. I almost always have a computer nearby, so it's easy to tap into when I have a free moment.

happy anniversary! I tend to look at all the inspirational blogs on my google reader - including yours of course...

Happy Anniversary to you! I get loads of inspiration from Paper Crafts and always check out the PC and Moxie blog for inspiration.

May said...

When I start a project, I usually do a quick blog round or check my inspiration folder on my computer - that's where I save pictures of cards or sketches I adore.

Happy anniversary to you and yours!

Wat een cadeau, al die kaarten van de kids. Fantastisch, meer wensen heb je dan toch niet?

Wat een prachtige stempelset, ik doe graag mee. Ik zoek vaak inspiratie in het magazine "Cards" en natuurlijk op blogs en jouw blog staat bij mijn favorieten, dus.......

Groetjes,
Joke.

I like to blog-hop! You never know when inspiration will strike you, or when you come across something that you just have to try.
Thanks for the giveaway!!

Happy anniversary! What a great bunch of card makers you have there! They all did a great job.
When i need inspiration I usually turn to the pages of a magazine. Often times a home decor magazine will give me an idea such as a great new color scheme or maybe the arrangement of something in a room will be the starting point to a great card sketch.

Rebecca said...

I get inspiration for color combos when I'm out shopping. If I see a pretty display I snap a pic with the camera on my phone to use later. I also have an "inspiration folder" on my computer where I stash pictures from awesome blogs. There are so many great ideas out there and so little time to make them all! =)

Happy Anniversary and thanks for sharing the cards made by your very talented (and obviously well-trained) family. I get my inspiration from various blogs, websites and bits and pieces I've cut out or printed from flyers/magazines or the 'net. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jolanda said...

First of all. Happy 13th anniversary. I get a lot of inspiration by visiting blogs with Google reader and i have a subscription of the dutch 'Cards Only' magazine.

Lori Passey said...

Happy anniversary! I just stumbled upon your blog...linked from Sarah Martina's blog. Those are great stamps!

Hi Lisette! New follower here and i'm really loving your blog so far =) Congrats on the anniversary! Your kids are all so sweet and creative. When i'm looking for inspiration, I usually go surfing around the net to see if I can't pick something up or i'll just put the project away until my creativity comes back. There's so much creativity on the internet that you sometimes get lost in it and forget you have something to complete lol. Thanks for doing such a great giveaway =)

Happy Anniversary to you both! When I'm looking for inspiration, I just open my 10 year old daughter's wardrobe. She has more clothes than anyone on this planet and the colours and patterns never fail to inspire.
