Friday Fun and Flair!

{check out my $50 gc giveaway here}
 

Happy Friday everyone :D
I have been waiting for this Friday forever...I just can't wait to sleep in tomorrow morning!  I'm tired, ha!  No alarm clock, nowhere to be...sounds perfect and that's my plan for tomorrow!
Hope you have some great plans, too!

Onto the card today...it's Friday so that means Friends With Flair and a new Friday Fun Challenge.
For all the Friends With Flair check out the Unity Blog there is blog candy involved on one of the FWF blogs!

Today's Friday Fun Challenge was issued by me and it is to make a Wedding card that I would have liked to receive when Mike and I got married....kind of silly/fun, huh?
I was having a hard time with this since I was trying to make a card for ME but then late last night Mike saw Fly Free sitting on my desk and he read this sentiment and he said "that's what I'm talking about!", LOL! 
Perfect, thanks babe!
So I found some paper with colors that I LOVE and just made a simple card using this sentiment and I would truly love to receive this card any day!
This is true...we definitely LIVE by the sun and LOVE by the moon in my house ;)

I used some pearls and rhinestones I had on my desk and made a fun design and that's it...easy as pie!
Check out the rest of the Friday Fun Girls:
(not sure who's playing, Sherry has no net (pray for her, lol!) and Christi is in the middle of her renovations...but you can visit them anyway)

Have a GREAT Friday!!!

Fly Free on a Hip Hop Thursday!

{check out my $50 gc giveaway here}
Happy Hip Hop day!

Today I've made 2 cards using Fly Free, the June Unity Kit of the Month.  I have to tell you that I had to go to the Unity site and look at the kit again to make sure it's what I used...this kit is so diverse and versatile, it really has something for everyone in it...there are so many stamps in it that I forgot what they were!  And that's a GOOD thing!


Here they are, both made using Basic Grey Max & Whiskers paper.

The 1st card uses this weeks Hip Hop Sketch Challenge:

 

I hope you like them!
I had a lot of fun making them :D



Now 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! (I have Autumn Pals to give away this evening!)

Fun Share {$50 giveaway, too!}

I am ALWAYS looking for fab ways to organize things around my house....not that I ever organize...but I do enjoy the looking and buying part. ;)

So when I was contacted by Jess from CSN Stores to do a review of one of their FAB products I jumped at the chance! 
And along the way found something I think will really help me get my schedule straight for blogs posts and submissions, etc...more about that later.


While I was looking at their HUGE site I found something that if I would ever clean my bedroom (omg don't even ask!) then it would be so perfect for me and all of my jewelry, makeup, sunglasses to go in.  It's this gorgeous Bedroom Vanity

I LOVE it...but I don't know when I'll get around to cleaning my room so for now I'll start small...with this perfect bulletin/dry erase board for my stamping room:
Now for the GIVEAWAY...how would you like a $50 gift certificate to CSN Stores?  They have 100's of stores all on one site...I literally spent hours browsing their site!

All you need to do is become a Follower of my blog and leave a comment letting me know you are following me on this post.  If you already are a follower just let me know and THANK YOU.

I'm also going to throw in a few of my Unity cards I've recently made from me to you!

Easy enough, right?

I will announce the winner in 1 week (12:00pm June 29th) and of course I will let you know what I think of my new dry erase/bulletin board when it comes!  I can't wait to fancy it up!

March Hare: Its going mad!
Alice: Oh, my goodness!
White Rabbit: Oh dear!
March Hare: It is going mad! Mad watch!
Mad Hatter: I don't understand, it's the best butter.
March Hare: Mad watch! Mad watch! Mad watch!

March hare: There's only one way to stop a mad watch!
Mad Hatter: Two days slow, that's what it is. 

A VERY Merry Unbirthday to ALL!  Well, at least, that's the scene this excerpt from Disney's 1951 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland was taken from!  
It's ALWAYS your unbirthday here in WONDERLAND :)

We are thrilled BEYOND WONDERLAND today to announce our sponsor this week, a company that we just adore:  MY FAVORITE THINGS!  We are so grateful to Kim and Jody for offering to sponsor our little challenge blog and with a HUGE prize.  It really WILL be someone's un-birthday!

CHAPTER 16: What's YOUR Muchness?

CHAPTER 16: What's YOUR Muchness?

The Mad Hatter said to Alice:

"You used to be much muchier before!  Yes, you were much more Alice the last time we met.  You've lost your muchness..."

Alice replied:

"My MUCHNESS?"  

The Mad Hatter pointed to her heart and repeated "Yes, your muchness..."

We have MUCH MUCHNESS to be excited about today!   Not only are we excited about our new June Guest Designer, but Oh, Alice is THRILLED to welcome a few new FULL-TIME place settings to the Twisted Thirteen!

Please welcome:

Our sponsor this week is the sweet Prairie Fairy Designs. 
We have a fabulous prize for the winner this week, see the Oh Alice blog for all the details!

So, what's YOUR MUCHNESS?   We want to know the HEART of your stamping style.   Whether it's your favorite embellishment, "signature style", fave technique...we WANT TO SEE the MUCHNESS!

The heart of my stamping is QUICK and fairly clean in style and images that make me smile, which usually means very little coloring on my part...as long as I can make a card in under 30 minutes I am happy, oh and as long as there is patterned paper and ribbon I'm even happier ;)

This one only took about 15.  The stamp is the Coneflower from Prairie Fairy and I chose it, well, because there was just a tiny bit of coloring that I knew I wouldn't mess up:
I used this weeks CCEE Sketch!
Upload your card or creation to the Oh Alice! Blog by Friday, June 11th at 8pm CST to enter to WIN the prize from Prairie Fairy!   

Can't wait to see what you make!

Hip Hop Thursday!

Hi Hip Hoppers!

Glad you are here from Jessica's fantabulous blog!  If you didn't start at the beginning, head back to the Unity Blog and start there, you will not want to miss a beat!
I don't have my June Kit of the Month yet BUT I do have a new Donna Downey stamp that I haven't used yet!
This stamp is called TRUST:

I have a secret...I am normally anti-hearts, I seriously do not like them...but this heart does something for me, I like how big it is and how imperfect it is...that actually makes it perfect :D

I hope you like it, too!

Now hop on over to AJ's Blog to see what she has for you....
