Some Inspiration for this week!!!

The Pieces I choose for my own inspiration:

The Silver Turtle piece above is what sponsored me to sue this image!!!!!  When I first swa this piece I whipped out my NeeNah Card Stock and started printing!!!!

So below is my card for the week!!!  I did a similer card once for a The Character Cafe DT post so I decided to do another one similer than the first one!!!!  Extra's I used are NeeNah white CS to print my image on.  SU! Card Stocks KiWi Kiss, and Kraft. SU rhinestone brads in Square Ice colors.  I also added some free green twill ribbon from SU's Sale-a-Bration last year.

I colored up Seymore Turtle using these Copics:

B21, E30, E31, G20, G21, G24, G95, C1, C2,C3, B24

I actually glued real colored Sand on SU! Craft Card Stock to get the sand effect above.

This card below, I actually made a while ago , but I thought it was perfect for those squril a beaver silver pieces from the Etsy Shop for this week.

For this card I started out with a Blank White Card and sponged the sky, the ground, the road, and then stamped the Trees and printed and colored my Syd the golfer image with my copics.

I sponged the sky with SU! Ink Pads in Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, and Brocade Blue.  The Grass is in Old Olive, Garden Green, and Glorious Green.  The Road is in Chocolate Chip, and Close to Co Coa.  I stamped the trees with my SU! set lovely as a tree.

I colored this image up using these copics.
 R20, R35, R29, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, G20, G21, G24, B21, B24, B29, E31, E35, E37,

Well I guess that is all for me for the Etsy Inspired Challenge this week.  I had fun doing two teams at once!!!!!!

I hope you enjoy playing along with us and have a great Saturday Everyone!!!!

Today we are heading out to see Santa Clause Down Town where they are doing horse and Carriage Rides then we will pick out our Christmas Tree (we wanted to do it last weekend but Piper was sick) so we had to postpone it until today.   Tonight we will Decorate the tree and have some fun family time together I can not wait!!!!!
