Etsy Inspired Challenge #41

It's Saturday!!! Time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge and I just LOVE the shop this week! Potato Patch has some really adorable onesies and shirts for babies and kids.

This one would be perfect for either of my boys! :)

But this is the one I was inspired by:


I created a fun Fourth of July card with a child (specifically a young girl) in mind. This project was also one that I submitted for my LSS DT call.


Those adorable big buttons with the polka dot ribbon are actually a bracelet. The clasp is on the inside of the card and all the recipient has to do is cut an extra piece of ribbon that is holding the bracelet in place to release it from the card. I thought it was a pretty cute idea for a little card/gift to send to a young girl for the Fourth of July.

Be sure to visit the rest of the Etsy Inspired Team!

So, on a personal note...my oldest graduated from Kindergarten yesterday which is exciting and sad all at the same time. I can't believe how much he has grown and learned this year...he is already reading chapter books and his math skills are quite impressive too. Can you tell I'm a proud Mommy?! :) I don't know how I am going to be able to let him go to first grade ALL day next year! :(

Anyway, thanks for visiting me today! I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Aw! So cute! Someone is going to be a very lucky little girl.

I remember when my oldest graduated from kindergarten. Last week, my youngest graduated from 5th grade. Next year I will be sending her off to middle school. Now that is scary!
