EIC #103 {The Caged Fairy}

Hello, friends:}

Today starts another challenge over at EtsyInspired!! Just love visiting all those Etsy stores and finding inspiration for my creations! This week we are featuring the Etsy store The Caged Fairy. WOW--talk about bling and jewelry!! FAB pieces in that store;} And our sponsor this week is Your Next Stamp! Love these images! All the deets for this challenge are over the EIC blog! Be sure to check it out--there are 3 prizes this week! LOVE it!

My first project was inspired by this beautiful butterfly. I love those colorful pieces!! I created another prayer journal. The butterfly is from Unity's Butterfly Beauty. I picked different sections of the wings for the glitter to match the inspiration picture. Just love how this turned out!

This tag was inspired by these blinged out cherries! I had a gem cherry sticker but just couldn't figure out how I wanted it to look or how I wanted to use it....so I decided to use my Unity August KOTM cherry stamps instead! I love how these buttons fit just right! The sentiment is from Unity's August 09 KOTM. LOVE it! This was a simple tag--and can be used for just about anyone! 

My last card was inspired by this wonderful blue owl! I just love owls--I really wanted to make my owl just like the dark blue jewelry piece....but it just didn't work out! So I decided to change my idea. I love this card---I used Unity's 100% Happy set for the tag and the owl came from Unity's August KOTM. The sentiment is from the new Unity store kit. I love it! I also love the shape of this card. The first picture didn't really show it well--so I taped a piece of paper on the back to prop it up. LOVE it!

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by all the EIC DTs' blogs!! They have shared some beautiful creations today!

As usual, your cards are SOOOO beautiful! I love the butterfly embellie on the first card is gorgeous. I love the use of glitter against the patterned paper in the background!

And, those adorable cherries are soo sooo sooo cute! What a great idea making it into a tag! And, the owl is PERFECT! I love the simple and clean graphic look you always have. I just can't do it like you.

Sorry, I didn't get back your earlier email. I was soooo touched reading your email about your philanthropic stamp blog candy as well as the invitation to come visit. My hubby's grandparents live in Springhill near Tampa, is that anywhere near you??? We want to visit his family, and we'd love to come meet you and your hubby!! We could stamp, chat over coffee and introduce y'all to board games.....hahaha. were such nerds out here!

Hugs and love in Christ!
