Etsy Inspired #120--1.1.11

  Hello All!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! As I was typing the title of this blog, I realized that the date said 1.1.11!! How funny is that! Oh, I am sooooo excited for this new year!! Today, I will be flying home from a wonderful holiday in Texas to several boxes of scrapbook items that I received as Chrsitmas gifts from Papertrey Ink , Frost it Pink , and Emma's Paperie . I cannot wait to open them up and play with them.

  I also cannot wait to share this week's shop with you! Muffa creates the most adorable miniature crocheted figures. They're offering one of this week's winners the most adorable super teeny weeny little goldfish! What a perfect precious little prize!

   Items from  Muffa  are sooo small that they fit on the tip of your finger! Here's some cute examples!!

 Crocheted Miniature Russian Nesting Dolls

  Dearness me this shop is ADORABLE!! I must buy my mother a gift from here! Here's the item that I was inspired by.

"Cheery Snowman" Winter Card
I was inspired by the snowman and cute winter scarf

I love love love the Snow Day Collection from Crate Paper so I used paper and chipboard embellishments to make a wintery card. I added
tinsel glitter to give it a frosty look.

I am obsessed with this glitter ribbon, and used it to make a sparkly
scarf for my Snowman. It works great with the color scheme.
