Etsy Inspired Challenge #136 - Bearly Art

Happy Saturday!  Isn’t it lovely having a long weekend?  Our weather was gorgeous yesterday but it’s not supposed to be that great for the next couple of days apparently, thundery showers Sad smile.  Oh well, that means we will have to stay indoors and I can get creative! Smile Every cloud has a silver lining lol

EIC 136


Today it’s time for an Etsy Inspired Challenge and this week we have a shop called Bearly Art who have really unusual clocks for sale, all with different images.  I’ve been in a bit of a cutesy and CAS mood the last few days so I chose the clock with a little crab on and made a card with the phrase ‘We’ve Moved’ on it.  I like mixing up different styles, it's fun.

This little crab from Lawn Fawn’s ‘Critters in the Sea’ set looks like he’s got his home on his back.  I paired it up with the sentiment from a PTI set called ‘Wonderfully Whimsical’, and cut out a few papers from Stella & Rose for the sea and sand.  The twine is from The Twinery and also from Ribbon Girl.  Here’s some more fun clocks… The winner will get a clock of their choice of any of the in stock clocks.


I'm going to enter this little card into the Lawnscaping Challenge to use critters.

Our sponsors this week are Sassy Cheryl’s who are giving the winner a $5 gift certificate.  Pop on over to each of the girls to see what they’ve created..
