  35. Norman Dixon

    Great inspiration photo! I love the colors. AND, I am now a follower of The Ribbon Lady on Pinterest!  🙂

  36. Sue

    What I think about the picture: Inspiring textures: gritty, a crunch then soft, stiicky,dimensional.  Inspiring smells and tastes: fruity and sweet or fruity and salty (when I used to work in industry they gave us salt covered jellies to help us tolerate intense heat in summer).  Lemon, lime, cherry, spice, wintergreen.   Inspired designs: birthday cards with these colors as ballons or cupcakes; children's get well cards with heart shaped flowers or ballons; buttons (OMG what fun those would be shaped in these colors and covered with highly textured glitter).  Thank you so much, I feel the need to craft now!!! 

  37. Denise Coulter

    Totally reminds me of Easter with those yummy colors :). Looks like something the aeaster Bunny would bring to our house as well. 

  38. terriavidreader

    The inspiration is perfect!  Colorful, springlike, what more could you ask – except fewer calories!
