ETSY Inspired #43............Back To Nature!!!!!

Smiley from

It's another FABULOUS Etsy Saturday!!!!! And this beautiful shop, Whichgoose, is our inspiration for today!!! Make sure to stop by Ashley's Blog for all the deets and play along!!!!

My inspiration this week came from these dainty little pink butterflies!!!

And my FABULOUS, wonderful, sweet friend Misti is pinch-hitting for me!!! I love pink........duh.........and look what she made in spite of the fact that she does not like pink!!!! LOL I love this dp!!! And this sweet Unity Stamp from the April KOTM. Thanks Misti!!! Now hurry and get your blog started so we can all see your cute cards and just how much you RAK and spoil everyone!!!!

Misti is pinch-hitting because I did something to my knee.......I think I tore a ligament or tendon. Obviously being a holiday weekend I was screwed and my Ortho's PA can't even see me until Monday afternoon. Now, I can take a lot of pain........but after a week it had gotten so completely out of control I went to the ER Thursday night...........sure enough an x-ray doesn't show anything broken and I don't live near wonderful, modern hospitals!! LOL So no MRI equipment! But I have some wonderful pain meds.......they only help at night, but that's something! I'm trying to do some limited stamping from my comfy livingroom chair, but it's slow going and I can't do a lot. So Misti came to my rescue!!!!! Hopefully I'll have a positive update Monday night!!!

Now head over to the other sweet and talented ETSY Inspired DT members for some more wonderful creations to get you goin'!!
