Etsy Inspiration #89

Good Morning & Happy Saturday Everyone!
Welcome to another Etsy Day and we have a FABULOUS shop for your enjoyment this week called Made by Michelle Brusegaard.  Her store features a variety of handmade items such as cards, stationery, invites, napkins & prints just to name a few.  Be sure and browse for a bit because there is so much to see & inspire you!!!  Michelle is offering the 2 gorgeous prizes you see pictured above and our sponsor this week *Cutting Cafe* is giving away 3 Digi Sets to our lucky winners!!  In order to win, just visit the shop, pick your inspiration, make whatever creation your heart desires and post it to the EtsyInspired Challenge Blog

I chose the beautiful painting/print posted above as my inspiration.  I picked a few of the colors that really spoke to me....even though I wasn't sure how they were going to look on my design but it all worked out in the end.  I'm quite pleased with the final look & I hope you are too.  For more inspiration; check out the rest of the Design Team's work:

Well, I'm off to Chicago with my son Reginald.  We have an appt. with the Art Institute....yes, we're on a college tour!  I can't believe I'm at this stage with him!!!!!  I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend & thanks so much for stopping by!

    I guess I am early for this weeks challenge and late for last weeks LOL!!! I will be back later today to see if you have posted for this week yet but I just love your creation from last week!!! So perfect for that shop and such an inspiration!!!

    I hope you had a great trip with your son and enjoyed he college tour!!!

    I am not sure if Ashley let the team know or not but this is my last week on the Etsy Team at least for now maybe after the baby comes and things are settled down I can ask Ashley to rejoin the team, but for now I am just so busy and tired just keeping up with the kids it is getting hard to stay up late and create and stamp so I feel the need to cut back on stamping responsibilities for now anyway!!!

    I will so miss all of you on this team it is the best group of girls with the most diverse talents and I love all of you!!!!!

    Thank You Jackie for being you and I will most definetly still be following your creations and blog especially on Saturdays!!!!
