EtsyInspired #34 ~ Adopt-a-Critter


This week's EtsyInspired shop is Adopt-a-Critter.  I love this shop!  It's super fun!  The artist behind it is my friend Tiffany who I met through chatting on Etsy.  Tiffany is currently going to school AND raising her child so her shop is limited to Sydocians right now.  But I'll bet in the summer, more little critters will come out of hiding.  What I find super adorable about this shop is that you aren't just buying a toy, you are adopting a little friend.  They all have names and personalities.  I love their bright fun colors and sweet faces!  

This week, Tiffany is giving away a Sydocian of the winner's choice!  How fun is that?  You get to pick your own little friend!  All you have to do to win is go to the Adopt-a-Critter shop, pick any item (can also be a sold item) to be inspired by, and make anything your little heart desires.  Take a picture of your creation and leave the link right here on this post.  If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC34.  Please make sure your project is linked by Friday May 8 at noon Pacific time.  A random drawing will decide the winner.  Now, go be EtsyInspired!

A little news, May is bringing us a new guest designer!  Her name is Dawn and she does amazing work.  Please go leave her some love!  

Also, the DT contest is now CLOSED!  If you still need to sign up AND you got all your entries done before noon on May 1, please see the post below for details on how to enter.  However, if you missed the deadline, I'm sorry, you'll just have to wait until next time.  There are SO many talented ladies who applied, I wish I could pick ALL of you!  Thank you so much for taking the time to apply!




This is my card for the week, inspired by Benny, the critter above.  I love the bright, fun colors!  And of course, if I'm gonna make a card with a monster on it, I'm gonna make it a fun one!  The stamp set is Unity's Cuter Than Most.  

Please check out the team!
Dawn (May Guest Designer)
