Etsy Inspired #49 - MelissaKate

Guess what? Yup, two posts in one day.

I figured I felt mostly well enough to throw together a card for Etsy Inspired - and to take a picture of the one I did last week while I was at it - that I should go ahead and do it. So what if it was only an hour before the deadline and nobody was home to help me lift bins or reach things off shelves. Right? Okay, yeah, I overdid it, but it was worth it!

This week's shop was MelissaKate. I really love some of her photography, but it was this set of owl cards that was my inspiration.

I hadn't inked up this set yet, and I have a swap partner who likes red. Add owls and red and this is the card I came up with.
Deets: Unity stamps, Memento & Distress Ink

The penguins are from last week, but between school related stuff and my back, I didn't get to post it. The stamps are Memory Box, and I think the penguins are adorable. The inspiration for this card is a print called Togetherness from the shop vol25. If any of her prints look familiar, it's because she designs for both Unity and Stamping Bella!
A big GIGANTIC thank you to both Ashley, of Heart Hugs Designs, and Katie at Paper Makeup Stamps. And, of course, my sweet friend, JennyK, who played along last week, thereby making me eligible to win the $25 gift certificate to PMS!! Thank you ladies!!
