first etsy inspired

Hi all!  Hope your having a great Thursday!  This week has been an odd one, I can't seem to keep my days straight and throughout the day think it's actually another.  Yesterday I could have sworn was Thursday!  Weird!  So happy to see my card on the Create blog today for the Cards challenge, you can see it here.  Way to make my day!

But you know what made my day even more?  I was cuddling Carter after his nap and after a bit he tried to get away and I said to him, no cuddle mommy!  Lately he has been starting to talk on his own a lot more and he said "Cuddle" very sweetly than "Love You!'  In his most adorable cute voice, oh how my heart melted!  Ariel is gone for 2 nights with Chad's parents and a few of her girl cousins so I am looking forward to some mommy and Carter time!

Today I have a card for the Etsy Inspired challenge.  This is my first time playing with there challenge!  And it's a great time to do so with it being there 100th challenge, such great prizes!  Loved looking through Cath Walter's Etsy store!  Here is what I found inspiration in:



So pretty isn't it?  Here is my card:

I loved the pink butterfly and I added some other colors (can't help but love these colors right now)  I don't have a musical stamp (yet! did you see the new Hero Arts background one yet?) So I used my friends def background. And also clear embossed the Cling dots by HA on all the white, and stamped Antique Brocade with Broken China Distress Ink.

I think it's quite funny that as I wrote this post it dawned on me that I could hear flushing, I caught Carter standing by the toilet flushing it over and over!  I started the post with how sweet he is, and ended it with how much of a boy he is!

Have a great weekend see you Saturday with another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!
