An Etsy Inspired Challenge AND an AMAZING BOGO Event!

Today is the first Etsy-Inspired Challenge for August and guess who the Guest Designer for this month is! Me!! I am very excited to join this talented team this month. I really love the whole idea of art inspiring art.

This week's featured Etsy store is Julianne's Jewels. She actually has TWO stores and you can view her original one HERE and her NEW one HERE. She sells some GORGEOUS hand made jewelry and home decor. The winner this week will receive a $20 gift certificate to her store.
Here is the piece that I chose as my inspiration:

You can find the listing HERE. I just love the color of the earrings and I thought the lantern shape was unique. I chose the lantern from Unity's May KOM Another Sweet Day and the sentiment is from April's KOM Fresh Beginnings.
Check out the rest of the Etsy-Inspired Team for their creations:

Now you want to know all about the BOGO, and honestly, who doesn't? :) Bring One (friend), Get One (entry)! All EIC players that “bring a friend” that is new to the challenge will be entered in a drawing to receive a special prize sponsored by Paper Make Up Stamps!!!! Bring one friend, get one entry; bring two friends, get two entries, and so on!!!! The more friends you “bring” the greater your chances are to win! Additionally, the EIC player and her friend(s) will be eligible for the weekly shop give away, as well!!! You could win TWO great prizes!!!

Here’s how to participate… invite a friend (or friends) that are new to the challenge to play along with you for the 1 August challenge. Have your friend(s) go to Ashley’s Heart Hugs blog, read about the shop for the week, go to the shop, be inspired and CREATE! They should than go back to Ashley’s blog and post their project from the post for EIC 47 post. In the post they should include “referred by” and your name. What YOU need to do as the referrer is post your card from Ashley’s blog, and ensure you include your BOGOs names. You’ll get one entry for the grand prize for each new person referred! The more people you invite to play, the greater your chance is to win!

On Friday 7 August, Noon PST, Random.Brady will choose the week’s challenge winner as usual. For those that referred new players, their names will be put in a “hat” and one lucky winner will be drawn to win a prize sponsored by Paper Make Up stamps! Some of you may know Katie and her shop and if you do, you KNOW it will be a GRAND prize! If you don’t go check it out and you’ll see!

Don’t miss out on the fun! Mark your calendars and go get your friends Etsy Inspired!
