FWF & FFC

TGIF! Today I have Friday Fun and Friends With Flair to share with you.

Check out the
Unity blog for all of the FWF blogs this week!

Today's Friday Fun Challenge (FFC) from
Kimme is to make a card that is not a standard fold card, so took my Scor-Pal out of the packaging for the 1st time since I got it a year ago, lol...and I made a Gate Fold card.

I used the August Kit of the Month {All You Need} for my card...and more Echo Park paper...hope you're not sick of it, it's SO pretty, I can't stop using it!

The double-button is holding the card shut.

Unity Addicts Challege

Hi everyone!

I have a card to show you for the Unity Addicts Challenge this week. The challenge is to stamp on anything but paper! Fun right?

So I stamped on cork.
The paper I used is by Echo Park and you can get it as part of the latest {ippity} release, it's called Life is Good.
I used my crimper on the layer with the numbers on it...that was fun...haven't used that in years!

This stamp is from the Unity kit Be Bold and is only available is stores.

Hope you have a great day!

Happy Friday!!!

Happy Friday....while you read this I should be headed to gorgeous Ocracoke Island for the day with my sweetie!
I love the Outer Banks...so chances are after already being here for 2 days...I am in a REAL good mood :)
(P.S. it's my Anniversary tomorrow so that's why I've snuck away on a romantic getaway!)

OK, card time...and I used Copics! And I don't think I sucked at it this time! All of my practice at the SCS CHA Booth must have really helped!

This week Kimme sent us some fabby supplies to play with..paper, ribbon, dew drops, and this digi stamp!
Our image we are using is MOLLY...a girl after my own heart ;)....from In Style Stamps, who were VERY generous in donating this CUTE stamp for us to use this week!
LOVE that and thanks Kimme for hooking us UP!
I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch for my card.

I'm not even afraid for you to click for a close-up look, I am really proud of my coloring on this card! Let me know what you think! I'd love any tips and tricks you know!

Dear Santa...It's Hip Hop Thursday!

Hip Hop!
Today I have a SUPER quick card...like not even 10 minutes kind of card. I thought of it the other night when I went to bed and whipped it up in the morning before work.

I just knew I had to make a card to send to Santa...to let him know how hard it's been for me ;)

I think I'll send it right away!

Do you think it will help? Or maybe explain things to him just a little bit?
;)


I used Mitten Weather stamps, paper and chipboard for my card.

Hop over to AJ's Blog next to see what she has made for you today!

See ya then!

Review for YOU!

FUN STUFF today...for YOU!

I have found a website...or more like a virtual Mall...that I really love...
CSN Stores!

They literally have 1,000's of items on their website(s)...from fabulous
SHOES like this pair:(OMG THESE ARE SO JIMMI!)

to gorgeous Bistro Sets like this one:
Who knew I needed a Bistro Set...but I think I might, lol!
Can't you see my Cuttlebug and all my folders and dies set up on this table???
I have them in a cabinet in my storage cube set up right now and I actually have to Cuttlebug on the floor...yeah, for real...but this would take me off the floor!

So I am going to be shopping there SOON and I will tell you ALL about it!

Thanks for stopping by!
