Welcome Home - Etsy Inspired Challenge #133

 Hello friends!  Hope you've had a wonderful week!  We are heading into Spring Break and plan to fill it with lots of fun times with friends and family...yeah!

 If you're looking for a little crafting inspiration this weekend, then you've come to the right place!  Our featured Etsy shop this week is XS Baggage & Co. and they have lots of great fabric laptop sleeves,  zip pouches, key fobs, and more for you to be inspired by.  I think you'll love some of the patterns and color combinations in this shop...I know I did!  I mean, really, how can you not love this adorable little wallet!  The colors and sweet design inspired me to create this card.


I adore how this mini card turned out (and was a little sad when this one didn't get picked up during my last batch of magazine submissions).  :(  The cute little home is from MME Alphabet Soup girl's playing card set.  I combined it with some BoBunny double dot paper, MME ribbon/trim, My Little Shoebox letters, Crate Paper decorative brad, and Making Memories silver brads.

Are you feeling inspired yet?!  How about a little extra incentive?  XS Baggage & Co. will be giving one winner this week a gadget keeper of their choice and our sponsor, Wax Fruit Company, will be giving another winner a gift certificate to their shop!

So...what are you waiting for?!   Head on over to XS Baggage & Co. and find an item that inspires you.  Create a project of your own (anything crafty counts) and post it to your blog or online gallery.  Link your project up to the Etsy Inspired Blog by Friday at noon.

And be sure to visit these lovely ladies to see what crafty goodness they came up with this week!
