Monster Hugs - Etsy Inspired Challenge #136

The sun is shining, it's Easter weekend, spending time with family...what could be better?!  How about a little crafty challenge!  This week we have a fun Etsy shop for you to be inspired by.  Bearly Art features a variety of cute, pretty, and modern hand painted clocks.  And what's even better is that they reuse old records for the clock base...yeah for recycling!  My personal favorite is this adorable crab clock

I was inspired by all the adorable kid clocks to create this fun card using My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup playing cards for boys.  I just love this little monster.

I also used My Mind's Eye paper from the Fine and Dandy collection, American Crafts thickers, and The Twinery's twine.

Our sponsor this week is Sassy Cheryl's which has tons of whimsical images that are wonderfully detailed.

Ready to play along?!
- Visit  Bearly Art  and find an item that inspires you.
- Create a project of your own and post it to an online gallery or blog.
- Link your project up to the Etsy Inspired Blog by Friday at noon for your chance to win a fun prize from our sponsor or featured Etsy shop!
