Etsy Inspired #39 - Chicy Creations

Good morning everybody! I am super-duper excited. Today is my first day as a guest member of the Etsy Inspired Challenge team! I want to thank Ashley for giving me this opportunity.

This week the shop is Chicy Creations. They have the absolute cutest hair bows and tutus. It almost makes me wish I were having another baby girl. Almost. My girls are a little too "grown up" for some of the creations, but the 12yo is enamoured of the flowers. Those of you who know me will not be surprised in the least to find that my favourite is this little ladybug clip. I think it's adorable!

Since I cannot resist ladybugs, and I find ATCs so much fun, I went with a ladybug ATC. I used one of Karen Lockhart's Itty Bitty stamps. The text was done in Photoshop. All cardstock is Stampin' Up!Now it's your turn! Find an item from the Chicy Creations shop that inspires you in some way and create something. It could be a card, a layout, an ATC, a cake, a poem - anything at all! - and link it to Ashley's blog post here by noon on June 12. Someone will win this week's prize. All the deets are on Ashley's blog.

While you're cooking up your project, please head over to see what the rest of the Design Team has got to show.
If you upload your project to either Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, please use the keyword EIC39. Now go be EtsyInspired!
