Joy's Challenge and EtsyInspired News!

This is the card I made for Joy's challenge.  Joy has a picture on her blog that you can use for inspiration.  Or you can make a card showing what you are desperate for.  I did a little of both.  I used the colors from the picture and made I card with what I'm desperate for, COFFEE!!  

Every now and then I have a little decaf but I try to stay away from coffee as much as possible when I'm pregnant.  And going out for coffee with a girlfriend sounds like a dream right now!  What I wouldn't give...  Anyhow, this card uses stamps from Flourishes, designer paper from DCWV, and a little coloring.  Make a card showing what you are DESPERATE for or using the picture for inspiration and you could win an awesome prize pack from ShortCuts!!  

In other news, a new month means a new EtsyInspired guest designer.  And I am SO excited about this month's designer!  She's a busy lady!  She's on a ton a design teams and I seriously doubt there's anyone out there who doesn't know who see is.  On top of all that, she's a very dear friend of mine.  My guest designer i s the one and only Taylor Usry and I could not be any more excited!!  I might have stolen this picture of Taylor and her sweet little girl from Facebook.  

So, tune in this month to see what great challenges we have in store for you and to see Taylor's amazing work.  Also, don't forget that you have until March 3 at midnight PST to make your cards for the blog hop and win those amazing prizes!
