Etsy Inspired Challenge DT Sample and Challenge entry for Your Next Stamp Company! (Prize Sponser this week!!!)

Pumpkins and Kitty's and

 Houses Oh My!!!

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!!,

I guess my Computer/Internet issues seem to be resolved at the moment a Big Thanks to my sweet friend Jess Diedrich from The Whimsical Butterfly Blog for helping me out with posting what she could for me and notifying people yesterday!!!!!

Now today is of course The Etsy Inspired Challenge Day and guess what this week we have both a really cute Shop called The Little Red Door, but we also have a Prize Sponsor Your Next Stamp Company and they are hosting their 2nd Challenge right now to make a shape card, and it happens to be the Owner Karen's Birthday tomorrow so Happy Birthday!!!!

For all the full details and what the prizes for playing in the challenge this week, and details on how to play and when your entry is due, you will want to head on over to the New Etsy Inspired Blog!!!

The Etsy Inspired Challenge Design Team:

So Here are some of the Inspiration pieces from this weeks shop The Little Red Door's Etsy Shop

Here is the Particular Piece I took my inspiration from for this weeks project.  I bet a lot of the team picked this piece for the project too!!!  I could be wrong but I bet they did!!!!

So Here is my Card.  I made this card because the Challenge over at our Sponsor for this week (Your Next Stamp) has a challenge to make a shape Card so I thought I would make a pumpkin card and Your Next Stamp was kind enough to send us DT members a few really cute Digi Images so I incoorporated them into my project as well.  The cute friendly witch and the kitty are both Digi images for your next stamp.

 Here is a side view so you can see the card actually is closed at the bottom and opens at the top backwards instead of forwards.  The Sentiment is from one of my new SU! Hostess Sets and the Pumpkin shape I hand drew then cut out to get the pumpkin.

I colored the images up with my copics in C2, C3, RV21, and C5 for the Kitty's  The Witch is colored up with R00, E00, E93, RV21, YG00, YG03, YG09, V00, V12, V04, V17, YR02, YR04, YR09, YR18, G95, E31, and E35.

Well I guess that is about all for me this week I am going to head to bed.  Hubby is taking off for Manhattan Kansas home of Kansas State Univer. tomorrow to go to an Alumni Board Meeting for the House he lived in during college and then meet up with some friends and then on Sunday after church we will be driving to meet Marvin's parents to pick up Tucker he has been gone a week at the Farm with Grandma and Poppy Schlatter, and although my week was very quiet and I felt like I had a huge break because the four mornings that Willow was at school I actually had some time with No Kids and I can not remember the last time I had that probably in July when I went to St. Louis to meet up with my friend there!!!!  Those hours were heavenly, but I really really miss my little boy and his sweet disposition.  He has talked to us a lot on the phone each day and he is having a blast so that is a good thing I guess!!!!  Every day he tells us about the Cows.  He loves being at the Farm and seeing the cows and this time he got to see some Baby Cows out in the pasture imagine a little two year olds excited voice over the phone telling you all about the baby Cows!!!  It is so cute!!!!

Have a Stampendous Saturday Everyone!!!!

This is SO adorable Heather! I love every detail!! The pumpkin shape card is so cute! I NEED that witch and you colored her so beautifully!! I love the color you used on her cheeks! What color is that??
I love YNS!! I got one of the mermaid sets (of course!) but haven't got to ink it up yet. Seeing your amazing witch is making me want to ink it up right now...but it's well after midnight and I have to get up at 7am. So no midnight stamping for me.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Just to let you sentiment stamp was a $1 find at Michaels but it was one or two years ago so I don't think you could find it now. :(
