Echo Park & FTL109 ~ Halloween Card

How happy are you that it's FRIDAY??? I'm happy :)

But before I go any further...I want to talk about something/confess something, right here, right now!
I have become such a LAZY stamper and I don't like it...I used to love to try new things and sit for hours and hours in my stamping room and make cards. But not anymore. And I think I want to get back to that. I see all these CUTE embellishments people are MAKING, like not buying, but MAKING themselves and I love them....swirly flowers and ribbony things and beautiful-ness! I want to try all of these things and I just wanted to say that I am going to TRY to do this and make an effort to be better and more detailed at making cards....K?

Just wanted to get that out there and off of my chest because it's been bothering me a lot.

OK, now for what you came for, the card.

Today's card, as every Friday, pretty for Friends With Flair which you can learn all about in THIS SCS thread and then see all of the blogs on the Unity Blog.

My card is also for the week's Friday Fun challenge from Sara, she said "show me your flowers" so I made a card with a flower...(see! I should have used flowerS but I was lazy!).

I used the same Echo Park paper from yesterday, hope you don't mind, it's just so danged adorable and perfect.
I used a sketch from Sketchabilities.

This sentiment that I am totally in love with, is from All About the Journey.

Check out the rest of the Friday Fun Girls:

- she's not stamping this week :(...she will one day soon, promise!

OK, friends, thanks for your ears to "listen" to me and yours eyes to see my card...I APPRECIATE you!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Go Confidently

I made this card Friday night maybe for today's {Ippity} hop but really didn't feel like I used enough {Ippity} for it to count so I didn't link it up.

But I do LOVE this card. It was super quick and easy to make and was perfect for the crafty fix I needed after work Friday evening :)

The stamps on the Kraft piece are from All About the Journey and I used Burlap from {Ippity} to stamp the Pumpkin Pie piece of cardstock.

This patterned paper is Basic Grey Pyrus.

Have a great day and thanks from the bottom of my heart for stopping by to see me!

FFC & FWF Friday!

Hey there!!!

Time for Friends With Flair and Friday Fun!

This week's Friday Fun Challenge from Sara is to Think Pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.

I made a pink {and purple} card that is not particularly for Breast Cancer Awareness but perfect to give to a girlfriend or little one during the Winter months, an encouraging card :)

I used the Crate Paper Snow Day Collection paper and chipboard.

The sentiment is from the November 2009 Unity Kit of the Month Simply Magical.

Check out the rest of the Friday Fun Girls:

September Stampin' Store Kit

Today I have a bookmark I made using the September Store Kit Bold Insight.

I used this very good tutorial on only took me 4 times to get the folded part right so in my mind that's GOOD tutorial...I am more than fold-illiterate...there really aren't words to describe my skills, LOL!
The paper I used is Crate Paper, Restoration.

You can see all the Design Teams projects on the Unity Blog today!

Hope you like it :)

Have a great weekend!

Friday Circles

I know I'm ready for the weekend! It's only been a 4 day work week but it feels like 8! Why is that? Oh well, I can think about it for 2 days while I'm off work, right ;)

Today's card is for Friends With Flair which you can find out all about in this thread on SCS and then you can find all the blogs participating on the Unity Blog this's also for this weeks Friday Fun Challenge.

This weeks Friday Fun challenge from Sara is to use circles in any way we want to.

So I used a bunch of punched out circles from Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-Licious paper line. I used a stamp from the Unity kit to match this cute paper called Pixie-Licious Blooms.
I added one little piece of chipboard and viola...a 5 minute card...5 minutes only because I didn't put any of the punches away when I was done, just left them laying on the floor next to the drawer...I hope the dog doesn't decide they are toys today! HA!

I hope you will check out the rest of the Friday Fun girls:
(she's not stamping this week :(

Have a great weekend!!!
Oh yeah, tomorrow on the Unity blog we will be showing off some projects with the September Store Kits...and I did not make a's a non-card project ;) Crazy, I KNOW!

Hi everyone!
It's that time of the week again for some Unity goodness from the Design Team.

I hope you started at the Unity blog, there is always lots to "hear" from the lovely Angela. Then you hop along through Unity and {ippity} and maybe find some prizes along the way ;)

I am here with a card using September's kit of the month When I am With You.

I also...believe it or not...used this week's Hip Hop Sketch (HHSC24)!Now, use your imagination and just go there with me...imagine it with some of each of the sides and border taken out and smoooooshed together to be card sized ;)
You see it now, don't you?
I tried!
The paper I used is from Prima {Paisley Road} (I didn't even know they had paper, yes, call me dumb, until I saw this paper!).

Now it's time to hop over to see AJ!
