Etsy Inspired Challenge # 94

I love Etsyinspired Challenge Blog. Shopping at Etsy is definitely a place to get inspired! This week's EtsyInspired shop is Sand Box Studio . This shop specializes in funky and fun gift boxes, bags, and bunco games. This shop carries lots of bright and cheery items that are reusable. I was inspired by this Sunny Sunflower Farmer's Market Tote Bag. I tried to find a sunflower-like image....
This is what I came up with. The composition is so simple. It's just another excuse to use my latest favortie Hero Arts stamp set Bee Happy     
Some of you know my DD Stephanie (attending U. of Toronto) is doing her summer study in National University of Singapore in Environmental Studies. She is LOVING the experience.. the city sights, the country side...what's not to love!?  See how HAPPY Stephanie is in front of that food!?
 She embraces food ...just like her Mama :) Here's a food court photo she shared over her Facebook. I just had to show it off here! These are photos she took and put them in collage. YUM!!!!!
Don't go too far... I have a new challenge from Treehouse Stamps and BIG annoucement coming my way. As you can see, I'm keeping very busy with my card-making. I never knew I can be so addicted to blogging....well, you just can't turn the clock back now, can you ? Thank you for coming to say hi.

HOW DARLING, Virginia! With this Etsyinspired blog inspiration, I'm even wanting to go over there to see what they are offering. That bag is SOOOOOO CUTE! Your card is even CUTER! You continue to have the MOST FUN designs. I can also see where Stephanie gets her BIG SMILE from, too! She is DARLING! Why can I just picture some stamp image in the likeness of her????? I'm sure it would be a best seller! Stephanie's food collage photos are AMAZING! She does have SERIOUS TALENT and the "smarts" to go along with it. You must be SOOOOOOO PROUD of her. Glad that I just had breakfast, otherwise, I may just have had to hop in the car and run over to the nearest BAKERY for a "SWEET FIX"!!
Love, Karen xoxoxo
