Friday Fun and Flair!

Did anyone else notice that this week seemed to be 10 days long instead of 5?
Well Friday is here and I have a Fun card to show you!
This week Kim challenged us to make a card with her daughters school colors, in honor of her graduation and today being her last day of high school!  Congrats Chelsea :)

So here is my card for Miss Chelsea, in her school colors of blue and yellow, I hope she like it:
I used this weeks Hip Hop Sketch Challenge...for which there may or may not be a prize...I'd check it out if I were you, just sayin'...and don't forget about my blog candy yesterday, that goes until tomorrow morning!

This stamp is from the new release called She.

She's Hip Hop Thursday!

Thursday is here again, don't you love that???
You know I do!

And today we have a bunch of FABULOUS new Donna Downey kits to show you!
One of them is called She Said...and I may have one to give away here on my old blogarooni!  So keep reading!

I made 2 cards today, one with She Said and one with {a little happy}.

First up is the {a little happy} card...and let me tell you, if this does not SCREAM 1987, I don't know what does...or you are too young and we can't be friends anymore...just kidding...sort of!!!
It *like* *totally* reminds me of hanging at the skating rink with my girlfriends trying to make the cute boys couple skate with us to "Secret Lovers"...ahhh....good stuff right there!

Now the She Said card is a quickie!  I am thinking of whipping up a bunch of cards like this with this kit for a Girls Night Out craft sale/show I am in next weekend, I think the girls will love them, don't you?

Fun stuff huh??  Are you still with me?  Are you waiting for the blog candy info?  OK, here it is!

Just leave me a comment telling me something "she" said...could be your BFF, your mom, grandmom, girlfriend, daughter, any chick in your life, including something YOU say!  Just tell me something inspiring, memorable, meaningful that a "she" in your life, said!  And you will be eligible to win this new Donna Downey Kit!

Easy enough right?

I'll announce the winner Saturday Morning.

After you leave your comment, hop on over
to AJ's Blog to see what she has for you....
After you HOP to all the blogs today, come on over to the SCS Forum to see this week's Hip Hop sketch challenge, CHAT, LAUGH and to win some FAB prizes!

Friday Fruity Fun and Flair!

Hello Friday, I love you!
It's true, I do :D 
2 days I come!

OK, enough of my silly talk!  You are here for the Friday Fun challenge (which I really wish you would try!) and the Friends With Flair card, right?

For all of the Friends With Flair participants check out the Unity Blog!

So Kim, our hostess for May, is evil...pure evil...check out this inspiration piece for this week it's hard and it's delicious!
It is isn't it?  I already stink at inspiration challenges, and now I'm hungry, too!
{Kim, you know I love ya!}

I was however, NOT, too hungry to make a card.  I was inspired by the chocolate (duh!) so I used brown, and the flowers so I made some using the Ippity kit Now and Always, I also used some red and green and yellow from the colors of the fruit for my card:
The sentiment is from the May Store Kit Naturally You.

I hope you like it!

Have a great day!

Hip Hop Thursday!

Welcome to the Hip Hop!  Glad you came!  I hope you started at the Unity blog cause that's where all the 411 is!
You now how sometimes you have SO many stamps that you don't even know what you have?  Well that's me and this little stamp I used today from {a little happy}
I didn't even notice it with all it's perfectness and "just the right" wordiness.

I'm so glad I found it!
See, it's just right isn't it?  I think this sentiment works for graduations, weddings, anniversary, encouragement, so many things!  and 4 simple words!

Love that!

I also love how that pretty Prima flower just makes me smile :D  I got that at Inspired from some of my new Prima friends...sweet peeps they are!

CHAPTER 12: Curiosity is Key...

CHAPTER 12: Curiosity is Key...
" Suddenly Alice came upon a little three-legged table, all made of solid glass; there was nothing on it except a tiny golden key, and Alice's first thought was that it might belong to one of the doors of the hall; but, alas! either the locks were too large, or the key was too small, but at any rate it would not open any of them. However, on the second time round, she came upon a low curtain she had not noticed before, and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted!"

This week the KEY is the challenge.
You can use embellishments, DP, stamps, whatever KEY elements you have to play is fine with us!
Here's my card with some patterned paper with keys on it:
(oh how I hate this picture, the lighting in my little room is not so great at 11pm, sorry!)
I used the Unity Stamp Co. new Brave Girl kit for my card.
There's no time limit to play this week..but you definitely want to check out the Oh Alice Blog for all the KEY information ;)
Have a great Saturday and a wonderful Mother's Day to all the...well to everyone...we ALL have a mom, know a mom, have someone in our life "like" a mom, grandmom, etc.....SO ENJOY!

Spring is in the Air!

Today's Monday Chicks are making Springtime cards!
I think butterflies and bright colors mean Spring, don't you?
So here's my card using that CLASSIC Unity set Butterfly Beauty:
(the Unity site is having some bad server issues so if you can't get to it, please be patient...they are working SO hard to fix this!  and the 20% off code will still be valid when it comes back up!!)
The smudgi-ness was an accident...I think it looks kind of interesting.  I dropped some glue on the butterflies so I wiped it with a baby wipe and it smudged a little so I just wiped the whole panel with the baby wipe to make it look intentional and now you know it's not, lol!

are the Monday Chicks playing along today, so go show them some love:)

Don't forget about the Anniversary Challenges going on for chances to win fabby Unity NEW release and Spellbinders prizes!

They all end sometime this week, so check them out!!
