EtsyInspired #81 ~ Ponder and Stitch

As you all may have noticed, I'm on a "half-break" from EtsyInspired. LOL! It means that I'm not writing the main posts, dealing with shops, handling sponsorship, picking winners, and contacting people right now. EIC is A LOT of work. Luckily for me, I have TWO amazing coordinators that help me a WHOLE lot on this challenge, De and Kerry. I'll write an in-depth post on me later, nothing to worry about though.

ON WITH THE SHOW! This week's EtsyInspired shop is Ponder and Stitch. They have amazing cuffs, bags, and headbands. There's a whole bunch of fun patterns to choose from and the colors are fantastic! I really love the triple strand design that is signature for them! You can also have your items personalized for special gift giving. How cool is that?

Here's what you need to do for your chance to win!
- Visit Ponder and Stitch and find an item that inspires you
- Make your creation and post a link to it on the EtsyInspired #81 post on the EtsyInspired blog by next Friday, April 2nd by noon Pacific time
-Everyone will be entered into a random drawing to win.
-If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC81.
-And PLEASE remember to give credit to the shop that you found your inspiration from.

This week we also have a wonderful sponsor, Digi Stamp Characters by Heather Ellis. Her images are absolutely precious and a perfect compliment to our shop this week! Heather will be giving the lucky challenge winner 3 digital images. She sent over some super cute images for the DT to work with. :) You may recognize her Pure Innocence girls, they are so sweet!

Here is my card for the week. It is inspired by the cuff shown above. The DT got to work with adorable images from Digi Stamp Characters! :) My first Pure Innocence. How cute, huh? This was made using the current sketch from Card Positioning Systems. I flipped the sketch. The paper is Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl. The sentiment is Unity. The chipboard was painted with Creative Inspirations Paints, in Sunshine.
Check out the DT:
