GIna K Design October Release Inspiration Hop, Day 3!!!

Hey Ya'll!! Welcome back to your last day of the inspiration hops for this month...NOT your last day of inspiration though! :D Up today we have two new stamp sets...first is Tami Mayberry's newest set called You Go Girl!..what fun this set is and just full of encouragement for all of your girlfriends! Here is a card that Lee showed for me at the party the other night:



I just love that sentiment! That fits me to a T! I have always laughed at some of the WORST times! ...like at funerals...or during prayer...NOT good! LOL! Laughter IS one of the best medicines in my book! :D

Up next we have the new 'One Free With Three' stamp set called Pleasant Plurals ...this stamp set is so perfect for including everybody in your family AND TO everybody in another family! Here is my card with it:



I also used the new StampTV kit, "Wishing You Joy"...I used the house image and that sentiment on the bottom of the card is from that set too. This was a really quick card to make...I only used some glitter pens on the house, along with a few white gel pen accents instead of coloring it all in...I think it turned out pretty cute!!

Ok , ready for more awesome inspiration? Be sure to leave comments along the way for more chances to win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual precut images!

There is something about that little house that I really like. It is so dainty and cute! It is true that if we can't make it better, it is best to laugh than to cry. Laughter is the best best medicine.
