Celebrate Beginnings - Etsy Inspired Challenge #81

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a good start! My oldest is officially on Spring Break so we are looking forward to a week of quality family time. I'm hoping to head up to the outlet mall tomorrow...we all are in need of some Spring/Summer clothes. And I think a trip to the zoo might be in order later in the week too!

On to the challenge! This week our featured Etsy shop, Ponder and Stitch, is one I have had my eye on since I started my shop on Etsy. I love Amy's unique cuffs and pretty, vintage style. Plus she is happy to stitch a custom word or phrase on them. I'm thinking I might like mine to say have faith, dream big, or go ahead...wish. What would you like yours to say?

Our sponsor this week, Digi Stamp Characters has the cutest images. And the lucky winner this week will get 3 digi's from them! I used THIS Pure Innocence image for my project this week. Isn't it adorable?!

I was inspired by these two cuffs from Ponder and Stitch.



Aren't they both just perfect for Spring?! I gave my bag a Spring feel and thought it would be a sweet bag to use for a baby shower gift. I colored the girl with my Bic Mark-It's which Paper Crafts happens to be giving away this weekend if you're interested. However they don't have very good skin tones so I had to resort to using my son's crayon. :) And if you love the white felt scalloped borders like I do, you can find them HERE!

Okay, now it's your turn! Check out Ponder and Stitch and find an item that inspires you. Create a project of your own and link it up to the Etsy Inspired blog by next Friday at noon. Easy enough, right?!
