For My Mom - Etsy Inspired Challenge #138

Hello friends!  So I have to admit that lately I have not done much crafting.  I've really been focusing on my photography (see post below) and I'm loving it!  But with Mother's Day coming up and a lovely shop to be inspired by, I made sure to get out my supplies to create a card this week. 

Are you needing a little inspiration too?   Look no further than our featured Etsy shop, Bear Creek Design & Felting, which has some of the sweetest looking animals and they even have kits so you can create your own needle felting project!  I was inspired by this pretty flower.

So, I know this is not my best work...I think I'm a little rusty! :)  But my mom of course will love it and I do love this Stella & Rose paper by My Mind's Eye.

I also took this sweet picture of my boys in our front yard...I love that the flowers are finally starting to bloom!


Our sponsor this week is Claudia & Company,  a great online shop that carries tons of crafting goodies, including all the 'big names'.  I have my eye on the new Lime Twist collection by My Mind's Eye...can anyone tell me if the patterned papers are thick like the Stella & Rose collection or thinner like the Alphabet Soup collection?

Are you ready to play along?  Guess what?!  The Etsy Inspired Challenge is now going to be bi-weekly, which means you have more time to create a project for your chance to win great prizes! 

- Visit  Bear Creek Design & Felting  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, May 20th, at noon for your chance to win a fun prize from our sponsor or featured Etsy shop!
