Grateful for You - Etsy Inspired Challenge #115

This month seems to be flying by...Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas will be here before we know it. I have tons of gifts to buy, a birthday party to plan, and lots of projects to complete. I'm sure many of you crafty folks have plans to create some holiday gifts and the Etsy Inspired Challenge is here to offer you a little inspiration and a chance to win a gift for yourself too! :)

This week we have a scrumptious shop for you to be inspired by! Queen of Tarts Cakes offers wonderful handmade cookies in a variety of flavors and designs. They also have a second shop filled with edible image wafer papers for all you bakers out there who like to do it yourself.

Our sponsor this week is Inchie Arts, a great company that sells artist grade matteboard squares...perfect for stamping, watercolors, copics, and more! Check out their blog for lots of great ideas on how to use their products.

I was inspired by both our sponsor and featured Etsy shop to use inchies on my card.
I loved the sweet colors on these Baby Girl Quilt Cookies.



I have a dear friend who is moving out of state soon and wanted to create a special card for her so I was also inspired by the American Crafts' challenge to create a project with the theme 'I'm grateful for...'


For this card I used some of American Crafts fabric paper (love it!), AC Botanique patterned paper, and AC ribbon. The stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

To have a chance to win $25 worth of goodies from Inchie Arts or a sweet little prize from Queen of Tarts Cakes, simply:
- Visit Queen of Tarts Cakes and find an item that inspires you.
- Create a project of your own and for an extra challenge make sure to incorporate some squares.
- Link your project up to the Etsy Inspired blog by Friday the 26th at noon.

And for extra inspiration be sure to visit these lovely ladies!


Have a wonderful weekend!
