EtsyInspired #85 ~ Bee Things

Sorry that my post is so late! I've had an exhausting week in both good and bad ways and when I finally got home last night at 9pm after being out since 9am, I just didn't have it in me to do a post. Quite frankly, I'm not feeling rested enough to do one now. :/

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Bee Things. These shop has the most adorable illustrations you've ever seen! They make all sorts of fun stuff with their amazing designs like grocery bags, prints, t-shirts, notebooks and more. Their bright and colorful designs pair so perfectly with their fun style of illustration! I am super in love with this store! This week, they are offering a really cool t-shirt as a prize.
If that weren't enough, we have the PERFECT sponsor for this whimsical and cute store! It's COSMO CRICKET! That's right, you heard me!! Look at this amazing prize, pictured here! It's awesome!!

Okay, now all you need to do for your chance to win one of these fantastic prizes is:
- Check out Bee Things and find an item that inspires you.
- Create a project of your own based off the inspiration and link it up to this post using the new InLinkz on the EtsyInspired #85 post on the EIC blog by Friday, April 30th at noon PST.

Everyone will be entered into a random drawing to win. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC85. And please remember to give credit to the shop that you found your inspiration from.

Here's my creation for this week, inspired by the bag shown above. I used the bonus sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. All the designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety. The stamp is PTI and the ribbon is May Arts. The dew drops came from my Caffinated Cropper kit.
Be sure to check out our lovely Design Team this week...they have lots of Cosmo Cricket goodness for you to be inspired by too!
Now go be Etsy Inspired!
