Echo Park & Unity

Have I told you lately how much I love Echo Park paper?  what? no?  Well I do and I mean I REALLY do!
I got the Victoria Garden paper this week and it's one of those little pads of paper that I just flipped through, oh, 20 times and just stopped and oohed and ahhed and ALMOST could not bear to cut into it...but I eventually did.
And I teamed it up with the matching stamp set Better With Love, just for you:
I also used one of my favorite sketch blogs sketches, Clean and Simple FTL152.
I used Copic markers to color the roses.

Hope you like it!
Have a FABULOUS day!

Oh I wanted to give a shout out to a store with a SALE..you know how I love a SALE ;)
i {heart} papers is having a Unity sale, check it out!

Samantha Walker Creative Team AUGUST Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Creative Crafter's August Blog Hop!
We are all very excited to share and inspire you with our FABRIC projects today that showcase Samantha Walker Designs
Some of our projects feature "sewing" and "non-sewing" projects using fabric!

The fun starts at Samantha Walker Designs, if you need to start back at the beginning!
And, if you are coming from the fabulous Guiseppa's blog then you are on the right path!!

Here is my project I made that has NO stamping...and a little bit of sewing and was SO easy and FUN!

here are the adorable flowers I made!

It's a 12x12 piece of cork board that I found at Big Lots.
I very simply covered it with some lovely  Fabric
I glued the fabric on with Helmar 450 glue (love that stuff!).
The flowers are glued on with it, too ;)
I'm thinking one of my nieces will really love this in their bedroom...
What do you think???

OK, the next stop on the blog hop is KAREN...love that chick!

Make sure you leave a comment on ALL of the blogs!
You could win some of Samantha's AMAZING FABRIC!

Gina K. Inspiration Blog Hop Day #3! {gnome one like you & various verses}

Hi everyone!  Today the Gina K. Design Team is showing off 2 NEW stamp sets!

And I have 2 cards today to show you, I'm happy you are here to see them!!!

This 1st card uses Gnome One Like You.  I was trying to make a CUTE card and I flubbed up the "sky" and then I made the poor Mr. gnomey wear pink and purple clothes so I just changed it from cute to TACKY! 

What do you think?? :)
{I paper pieced with the Echo Park paper Country Drive and that pretty green card stock is Grass Green.}

And here is my card using Various Verses which is this months FREE set!

{I used Spellbinders Labels 14 and that pretty blue is Turquoise Sea.}

Thanks SO MUCH for your sweet comments, they really mean the world to me!

Here is the WHOLE design team list for you!  Don't forget to leave a comment on them all so you can WIN!
