Etsy Inspired #40 - Naturally Felt

Hello everyone! It's Etsy Inspired time again and Ashley's chosen another fabulous Etsy shop for inspiration. This week the shop is Naturally Felt, which sells handmade lunch sacks, reusable sandwich bags and felted slippers. Before anyone gets on to me about terminology, yes, they're actually knit and fulled, but let's not nit-pick, shall we?

Naturally Felt is definitely a company that can help you go green in a more stylish manner. As soon as I saw this little tote, I knew I had to use it for my inspiration. Aren't these the cutest little dinosaurs? If my boys were still little, I'd be buying one for each of them. They were definitely into dinosaurs big time when they were in grade school. Now, at 17 and nearly 19, they're more into plain solids, if I can even talk them into carrying their lunch. Taylor would far rather eat pizza from the high school lunch line. Cody is out of high school now, so it's really a rather moot point until he gets a job.

The dinosaur lunch tote immediately brought to mind Terry the Pterodactyl from Paper Makeup Stamps. This is the first time I've inked him up. Isn't he adorable?? The sentiment is from Unity's Love is in the Air, which I chose because the card is for baby Parker. We're all anxiously awaiting news of his arrival, which could be any time now. I used the sketch from Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #232.

One more pic, just because I think it's really cute and because you guys know just how much I love the ladybugs. Thanks again to Ashley for letting me join the team for the month of June!
