A BIG Thank You & Hugs to my bloggy friends and fellow EIC teammates for your kind words and emails last week. You guys are the sweetest. I'm back this week for a fun Etsy Inspired Challenge.

Our featured shop this week is DollBirdies
This shop is full of unique and handcrafted purses, critter pillows, camera totes, diaper bags, and more.

I was inspired by all of the items featuring "Owls" in this shop. I made a card using the plastic cover of a mini notebook. Here's how it turned out:

I used some SRM Stickers on the inside of my mini notebook card.
