And Here is the Piece I picked out for the Inspiration  for my creation this week:

Now onto my card for the week.
For this inspiration challenge I pulled out SU Card Stocks and my SU Stamp Set Sock Monkey.  I used the SU Card Stock Lovely Lilac, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and More Mustard.  I distressed with the same colored inks and I used a couple SU punches Sm Oval, Lg Oval, and Ticket Corner.  I embossed the Sock Puppet Monkey with Copper embossing powder and then colored in with SU Markers.

Well I hope you are all having a wonderful week!!!  I am still feeling very relaxed and so enjoyed my Girls Weekend away last weekend!!!!  Today I am going to my Next Door Neighbors Stamp Camp from 9am to 11am and then hanging out with my girls and Husband for the rest of the day and then tomorrow morning we are heading out at 8am to go to my nephews infant baptism and hang out with Marvin's family afterwards.

My 2 year old has been away at Marvin's Parents Farm for a week and we are getting him back on Sunday!!!!  I am so excited to see him, but he does not seem to excited to come home he told me today "I stay at Farm" "Feed Cows"  I totally think he would love to move up there and then come and visit us for a week at a time here and there!!!  LOL!!!!

Hope you can play in the challenge this week.  Just head out to the Inspiration Shop pick out an Inspiration Piece create somthing off of it and then post the link to your creation on the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog (Link above).

Have a Very Very Stampendous Saturday Everyone!!!!
