Be Inspired Design Team Hop

07 September 2017

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my beautiful friend Sarah Berry from the UK. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Be Inspired by Food'. Who else is hungry? I'm ALWAYS inspired by food!

In the Annual Catalogue there's a stamp set called Bike Ride and in it is the sweetest little picnic basket and little apples that nest perfectly in the basket. In the new Holiday Catalogue there's some paper called Quilted Christmas and I personally think paired with the apple basket it makes the cutest little country themed note card - if I do say so myself - and I'm hoping you agree?! ;) 

On Wednesday afternoons here in lovely seaside Kiama there's a Farmer's Market and a man who sells THE yummiest apples. He comes from a place called Orange (a gorgeous county town located central west about 5hrs north west from Kiama) and he has a chant - "Apples from Orange - fill'em till' ya spill'em" said in a true-blue Aussie 'blokey' way (I'm hoping that makes sense to my overseas blog visitors?!) and he makes going to the Farmer's Market even more fun! This card reminds me of those apples and I think I may even give him this card next Wednesday when I'm getting my apples! 

Next up to 'Be Inspired' by is my talented and fabulous friend Brian King from the the US, who I have no doubt serve up a tasty treat for us!
