Etsy Inspired Challenge #48

It's Saturday which means another Etsy Inspired Challenge and yet another fabulous shop! Jessica Rose just oozes talent and those of you who love Unity stamps will recognize this girl's work. Check out Jessica's shop Volume twenty five for tons of wonderful prints and inspiration. I have two projects to share today although one was not created by me. :)

Aren't these old fashioned candy jars so adorable! Since I have the Unity stamp of this image I of course had to use it for a project this week! However, as soon as I stamped the image my oldest son saw it and asked if he could color it and use it for a card. And I thought...What a great idea! :) This image is perfect for kids to color in and I think his card turned out wonderfully. He also really wanted me to share it with all of you, so here it is:

Next up is my project.

I was inspired by this piece to create a card and also play around with my photography a bit too. Check it out:





This week Jessica Rose is generously giving the challenge winner any 8x10 print in her shop. You all are soooo lucky! I wish I could win!

Be sure to check out THIS POST for all the details on how to play along with us in the Etsy Inspired challenge and if you can get a friend to join you this week you will have a chance at an extra prize too!

And of course the rest of the design team has some inspirational eye candy for you too!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am off to my first all day crop with my fellow Design Team members from my local scrapbook store, Lasting Memories. I am super excited to get to know the rest of the team, have some 'me' time, and hopefully get a ton of projects completed! My biggest goal is to create a 25 days of Christmas mini album.
