Etsy Inspired Challenge #53

Happy Saturday everyone! Wow, where did the week go?! My oldest son has had a great first week in first grade...although I miss him terribly! :( But my little one is getting lots of special 1:1 time with Mommy! :)

Enough about me! On to the challenge! This week we have a great shop for all you animal lovers...Pinky's Pet Gear. I was really inspired by all the colorful collars in her shop, especially this one:

And it gave me the perfect excuse to play around with the new BoBunny Boo Crew collection! Here is the fun Halloween card I created:


Cute, right?! I will have a few more cards and scrapbook pages to share with you using this collection soon! I am working on some design team projects for my local scrapbook store, Lasting Memories.

This week you could win a collar and leash set from Pinky's Pet Gear. All you have to do is go to the shop and find something that inspires you, create a new project, and link it up to our new Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog (www.etsyinspired.blogspot.com).

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, The Digi Shack! And they have just released 3 new images, perfect for Halloween! Just look at this adorable witch:

Now, I don't know that I did this image justice with my coloring so you can click HERE to check out the image at The Digi Shack.

This was actually my first time working with a digital stamp. I have two tips for all of you who are new to the digital stamp world...make sure you have some good quality, non-textured white cardstock on hand and also some good coloring tools (my son's set of crayola colored pencils just didn't cut it)! :)

The one thing that is so great about digital images is that you can size them to fit your needs. So, you could make the image 2" for a card but maybe 6" to decorate a gift bag or scrapbook page. Plus they take up absolutely no room in your craft space! :) And if you have always wanted to try some digital stamps then be sure to play along in the challenge this week because The Digi Shack will be giving one winner a $15 gift certificate to the store!

Make sure to visit the rest of the Design Team to see their wonderful creations!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We will be attending a few soccer games and celebrating my brother's birthday!

Hey Kerry girl!!!!

I love your Halloween card it is totally one of my very favorite of your cards lately!!! You are just kicking out some great stuff!!!

I spent quite a bit of time in your Etsy Shop last week because I choose your Etsy Store as the one I was doing for the Blog Hop and I picked out two of your boy pieces for inspiration because I had these adorable sail boats, air plains, submarines, tug boats, and trains and I made cards off of your inspiration and then when I found out my friend that was supposed to be at the Lake with her lap top so I could post my card was not coming until the evening of the Blog Hop I was so bummed because I really wanted to "honor" you and your etsy store you are just the sweetest and I love being on a team with you!!!

1st grade was hard because she was not one of the small kindergarten kids anymore, but let me tell you sending her to 2nd grade this year really makes me feel old!!!! LOL!!!!
