Christmas "Pin-spired" Celebration!

Let's get this party started!!!
Today is Day #1 of being "Pin-spired"!
I can't wait to share all the fun things
that I have in the works for this month!

My head is just spinning with all of the projects I have started
{and not yet completed}

You're probably wondering what this is all about. WELL...I've been an avid "pinner" on Pinterest for close to a year and I go to my boards often to become inspired by the wonderful creations I've seen.  After coming off of several very busy months of the Marching Band season, I really wanted to get back to my crafting in a big way, so I decided to combine the two and have a fun "Pin-spired" Celebration.  Each day from now through Friday, December 21st, I will be posting new projects that I've made that were inspired by Pinterest.  I'm not doing this with a's just for me to have some fun.  HOWEVER, I do have some very talented guests joining me this month which I am very excited about.

So here I go with my project for DAY #1 of my "Pin-spired" Celebration!  I used several cute sets from Gourmet Rubber Stamps ~ Holiday Seasons Sampler, Gingerbread Greetings, and Celebration Sayings.   I also used various embossing folders, Memento Inks and Divine Twine on each of the note cards.

My project today was "Pin-spired" by this Pin

Today I have a "Pin-spired" friend joining me on this creative journey ~ the lovely and very talented Vicki Garrett!   So hop on over to her blog and see what she came up with for her "Pin-spired" project! 

Ok ~ one last important detail.  I'm going to have Weekly Blog Candy!  You knew I was gonna do it!  Yup, each Friday I will be drawing a random comment from my blog to give away some cool blog candy.  You may leave as many comments as you'd like each week.  Then at the end of my "Pin-Spired" Celebration, I'll have more prizes to share with more lucky winners!  

Blog Candy Rules:  Comments that I deem unkind or look like spam will be deleted.  Winners will be posted on my blog each Saturday and must send me an email with your contact information.  Deadline for final blog candy drawing will be midnight (ET) on December 21, 2012.  If you fail to provide contact information to me by December 31, 2012, prizes will be forfeited.

Well...I think that covers it for today.  I hope to see you back tomorrow for more "Pin-spired" fun!

Your gingerbread man drew me in, but I love all the cards. How do you make the chevron?
