Close To My Heart Relay Race Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Relay Race Blog Hop!  If you are just joining the blog hop at my blog, please start at the beginning of the hop where you will find the beginning inspiration and then follow through to see how each person was inspired from the beginning to the end of the relay race hop, with each person involved in the hop only seeing the previous work of art for inspiration to create their piece.  Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

You can start at the beginning of the relay race blog hop at Nikka Geer's blog.


This is Tracy Oleksak's relay race project, where the inspiration for my project came from:

And this is my project, inspired by Tracy's layout above:

From Tracy's layout, my inspiration for my card came from her use of the Mayberry B&Ts and the butterflies.  I also used the same or similar border punch as she had used. 

It might be hard to see, but I used Glitz Glitter glue on the butterflies to add a little extra sparkle.


Be sure to follow along the relay race blog hop to see how my card inspired Wendy Kessler to create something fabulous.   You can click HERE to continue along the hop.

Happy creating!   :)

Fun card....your Mayberry papers seem so bright. It's amazing that you used the same papers as your inspiration piece but your artwork came out so very differently.

Wonderful card! I love the pop of black with the Mayberry papers. It is really neat to see how you were inspired and the elements you used to make the relay your own.

This has been fun - were you surprised by the original piece? I loved how the design has evolved into something so different from the first layout. Great job!

I think you are the queen of detail. The flower, the butterflies, the pleated b&t...just gorgeous!

Hi Vicki,
I always enjoy your clean, crisp and detailed artwork. I love how you incorporated the black, it makes the card POP!
