As you must know by now, I really found Barb's January "get me outta my funk" challenge inspiring. Funny, though, how at the beginning the photos I was most drawn to, ended up inspiring the fewest cards? That's why I love inspiration challenges.They really open my mind to the possibilities. 
Today's the last day to enter Barbles challenge #2, so if you have one last card to link up, hurry!

xoxo,
Jessi

You've been busy! What is the floating reinker technique? Whatever it is, the flower is gorgeous! Love the buttons around it, too. The trees look so cool on the pp. I used to have that set and am now regretting selling it. LOL! Your quilling, as usual, is gorgeous, too. The dew drops add so much dimension.

I think you need a prize purely for rocking this challenge a million times!! The inking on that first flower is gorgeous! I really must bust out the inks more often... The quilled flower goes fabulously with that patterned paper too.

Yup, I had to hurry! Had an idea for one last card floating around in my head for the last day or two, and finally got it made and linked up with 24 minutes to spare--whew!!

I love ALL of these, Jessi! It's so fun to see how you were inspired!
