It's time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge! Woo hoo!!
I just love these challenges! It has helped me to take time and dig around in some Etsy shops that I normally wouldn't take the time to do (even though I have wanted to for a long time). Anyway... let's get to it!
This weeks Etsy Inspired Challenge shop is Creation Designs! The shop owner is offering up a $20 gift certificate to one lucky winner. This weeks sponsor is Limelight Papercrafts. Limelight is offering up a great prize pack so you can visit the Etsy Inspired Challenge blog and check out those details here.
You have until Friday, May 21st at noon EST to enter to win! Make sure to link your blog post on the Etsy Inspired blog or if you use an online gallery... label your creation with EIC88.
Here is the inspiration picture that I chose from the etsy shop.
Here is my card...
I thought it would be a great card to slip in with a dinner for sick friend, etc.!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I promise that one of these days... I will get back to normal. Did a lot of cleaning out yesterday and took more stuff to Goodwill. I am working now on minimizing the amount of pictures that I have on hand. My husband built me shelves a year or so ago in our living room to house all of my photo boxes and albums. Well... I am 2 years behind on printing any pictures and I have already filled up the whole wall. Anyway.... that is what I am focusing on at the moment. I hope to make a lot of progress on that over the weekend.
I am also trying to get my head around NOT printing pics unless I am going to use them on a scrapbook page or to display. This is a HUGE deal for me as I have always... always wanted to have prints on hand. I just realize that as many pictures as I take... I just can't afford to print all of them any longer and I am going to have to have a new house just for pictures in a few years if I try to keep up the 'old ways'! :)
I have had some people ask if I am okay (and I appreciate that). I really am okay... I am just in 'home mode' and working on projects around here... trying to get my house and my life back to basics! Knowing that I will not have any other children is really driving me to get rid of stuff. I have kept a lot (didn't realize how much) of stuff thinking I may have a girl one day. Anyway... all of that is fine... I am just ready to get rid of everything! Let's just say that I think Michael is stunned at how serious I am about it.
Okay... enough rambling. I just really feel bad ... I know ... I know... you say I shouldn't feel bad for not visiting but... I do. I miss you guys. I am just really focused on home stuff right now. I can see a light at the end of the tunnel and I will be back to 'normal' soon (i hope...ha)! There just aren't enough hours in the day and I am sorry that I am letting my blog hopping, etc. suffer but ... again... with a 3 year old under my feet all day (not complaining... I love him!)... it has just taken me longer to get things done than it would normally if he were in school. I have to wait until Michael is at home and with his busy schedule... well... it is just taking a long time.
Okay... sorry... really enough rambling this time. It is late (or early... however you want to look at it) and you guys know how I get when I am tired... chatty! :) Thanks for 'listening'! :)
Peace and Love!
