I'm Still Here and I Love These New Basic Grey Lines To Death!

I am home....resting! I had a fun time in CA at CHA but the 2 days it took me to get home, delays, changing planes, missed connections, SEEDY hotel (nightmare!!!), no all too much and I need to just sleep and VEG out for another day before I can feel normal again.

I hope you'll forgive me.....

But I do LOVE these new Basic Grey lines...cannot wait to get them ALL!
(see you Monday with something stampy, promise!)

Monday With Love

It's did that happen? I'm tired this morning! The not sleeping because of excitement about CHA has begun for me so there was very little sleeping going on last night...and I had to get up early today to get to work...not good! But I guess it's giving me practice for the crazy hours in CA, right?

No worries!
Today the Monday chicks decided to make Valentine's Day problem for me since I adore them :D

Here's my card I made using I Ruff You and this weeks Crazy for Challenges sketch challenge:

Friday Inside and Out!

Happy Friday! OMG I have SO much to do before I leave for CA {CHA} next came so fast, I am kind of freaking out!

I'm glad you came by to see my Friday Fun and Friends With Flair card!

You can find the entire list of Friends With Flair blogs on the Unity Stamp Co. Blog!

Today's Friday Fun challenge is to make an Inside & Out card, which means the card is finished on the inside to match the outside, starts on the outside and finishes on the inside, or something like that ;) I'm not too good with details.....but it is inspired from THIS Moxie Fab Challenge, so check that out!

For my card I used the new Unity kit Best Wishes and Blooms! {Oh, how I love this set, let me count the ways......ha!}

Here's the outside of my card:

and here's the inside:
and here's a little side by side shot so you can see how nicely the inside matches the
outside and how the sentiment finishes on the inside:

UNITY Thursday!

Hi everyone!!! It's my MOST favorite day of the week...Unity Day! I always LOVE playing with my Unity stamps and this week was no exception, I had a LOT of fun making these 2 cards :D

This 1st card I made doing something I am not good at, or I thought I was not good at...I used my craft knife thingy to cut out the eyes and nose of the owl for my paper piecing! I'm so proud of myself I NEVER touch that razor thing......FUNNY story, I told Mike I need a "cutting mat" so he brought me a "putty knife"........LOL! He was kind of listening right? What a goof :D

Anyway, back to the card, I paper pieced some pretty paper and popped the wing up of this cute little owl from Savor the Journey and here he is:

{The little swirly-doo the owl is sitting on is from Bevy of Butterflies}

This next card I have no idea about...what puzzle pieces and buttons has to do with the other...who knows, it just happened so I went with it!
I just love that saying "Puzzled?" cute!
All of these stamps are from Savor the Journey.
There you have it. 2 fun cards using one FABULOUS stamp set! I hope you liked them!

Be sure to check out the Unity Blog for all the fantastic sales and fun for today! Also check out the rest of the Design Team's blogs for their pretty projects {they are all listed on the right>>>}!!

And have a BEAUTIFUL day!
{see you tomorrow for Friday Fun and Friends With Flair!}

Another CAS CPS Card!

I hope you don't mind another card made using this weeks CPS Sketch ?? It's just such a FAB sketch! I couldn't resist!

I am also CRAZY for Valentine's Day cards and I really wanted to use my new Papertrey Ink paper and make one of those adorable paper flowers I've been seeing all over the net:
The stamp is from Savor the Journey, the Jan. Unity Kit of the Month!

For my flower I used the PTI patterned paper punched out with my SU! scallop punch, I spritzed the scallops with water so they'd be soft and look worn when they dried (they actually look like fabric in real life!). I smooshed them up and set them aside to dry...then I got impatient so I took them to the bathroom and used my blow dryer to speed up the drying (my heat tool would have been too hot to hold them in my hand and dry!), then I just un-smooshed them and sewed them together with a needle and some twine and a button and viola! EASY! and CUTE!


Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Monday

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

Today's Monday Chicks Challenge is to make a CAS card which means Clean and Simple.
My original card started out with a CAS idea in mind and then ended up totally NOT CAS so I am saving that for tomorrow and I just made another card to fit the challenge for today ;D

I used this weeks CPS Sketch for my layout:

I CAN NOT get enough of this paper from My Minds Eye.....I am down to just a few half sheets...not sure what I'll do when it's gone, YIKES!

The stamp is from Savor The Journey {the Jan. Unity KOTM}.

1st Unity Thursday of 2010!!!

{blog candy post is HERE}

How is 2010 going for you so far??? I hope it's been the BEST year ever, yet ;D

Today the whole Unity Team is showing off the new January Kit of the Month: Savor The Journey.

Be sure to check out the Unity Stamp Co. blog for all the FUN plans for the day!

I have 2 cards for you today!

I needed a little inspiration so I went to sweet Miss Maren's blog to get inspired...and I did get inspired by her bows and simplicity....and here are the 2 cards I came up with for you.

The 1st one uses the ADORABLE mushrooms image from this months kit. I used a little button for the body of the snail {isn't he CUTE?} and paper from My Minds Eye (be loved) that was in last months Scrapping Kit:

(The sketch is this week's CCEE sketch)

Here I used the same paper line and the sweet sentiment that is SO perfect for so many people and another Maren inspired bow...I even made them both all on my own, no special bow tool or anything...I know you're impressed...ha!
This card was super easy to make, took about 10 minutes, my kind of card!
I hope I made you smile today!!!

Why don't you take the time to go to the rest of the Team's blogs to see what they've made for you??? You won't regret it! {their blogs are listed on the right>>>}
