It's Wednesday and that means there  is an 
"Inspiration Post" at the Gingerloft Challenge.
This week I am lucky enough to be able to highlight the cattails digi from Gingerloft Designs. I love cattails and remember as a kid being able to get them along the neighboring creeks. I always thought they were the most interesting plants to touch. On my inspiration card I have highlighted the cattails against a background of chevron designer papers. And, you know how chevrons are such a hot trend now.
Best of all - if you like cattails - this great digi is only 50 cents for one week only.
