Congrats You Did It

I know I usually don't post on Saturdays but I wanted to share a couple simple cards I had to make for some friends. Both of these cards use a Papertrey ink set it is their Anniversary Set. It's pretty sad but I think I already Qualify for the next one. Really not that hard to do all. To qualify you need to buy Twelve of their stamp sets which is not hard because everything they come out with is pretty hard to resist. Both of these cards also use new paper form Anna Griffin called Darcy love this paper the colors are great. So thats it for today I will be back on Monday to share a Teacher Project I did for one of My friends. Have a great Weekend!!

Thinking of You

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. This card is for a very special family friend who has been sick. I used card patterns sketch for this one. I have to say I went a little over board with the sketches this week I think I did three cards using this sketch but I will share those later. I used Papertrey Inks pond Life for this card perfect for manly and boy cards. I am going to vent here on how busy I am this week. I have 80 wedding invitations to do this week for my brother in law who is getting married in August. Plus type up all of my submissions and then just my everyday stuff house work,two kids you know how it goes. Hope everyone has a great Tuesaday and I better get to work. TFL

The first card uses some more K and Company paper I paper pieced some of the lantern love this image so cute. The second card could have used a little something more just one of those cards you start to make and then you go blank on what else to add so I just called it good. Third card uses Cosmo Cricket paper I stamped and cut out the key and tied to the heart did some faux stitching around the edge and that is it for these cards.

Happy Thursday!!

This card is a little bigger than I normally do but I thing it came out pretty cute. These stamp are from Unity's Everyday Adorable kit and there are some super cute cards in this kit with some great sentiments. The paper I used on this is from K and Company love the colors in these papers so cheery. Not sure if the buttons are a little to much but I thought I needed to fill the space on the card and what better wat to do that then to use big buttons. I colored the bee with stampin up markers and the I love these border punches and I have seen alot of people just layering them all on so I thought I would give it a go. The card size is 4x7. Make sure you check out Unity's great specials for HIP HOP THURSDAY.TFL

My Last Three Unity Challenges

This card I used Unity's Gratitude =Joy set. This is my all time fav set have not used it enough but when you have too many stamps sets I guess that's what happens. The paper is DCWV Latte I think it's called. This paper has some awesome texture to it. I used my Spellbinders Dies to cut out the shapes I am Loving these. This challenge was to use one of your first Unity Kits.

This card I used another Unity set called celebrate in style for this challenge you were to use only one layer. Honestly this was alot harder then I thought just to use one layer. I used by die again to cut the shape of the card I love that these dies come in a big enough size to make an A2 size card very cool. I added some gems to the present. This set has some very cute present stamps and sentiments.

This card I used the Hey Chick Kit from Unity this also was one of my First Stamps from Unity. I love this stamp for paper piecing added a little bling to the tail. I love making these flower embellishments saves money and they match perfectly to you card. The Dp I used for this card is Basic Grey's Two Scoops Collection. Sorry for the bad Pictures once again have not gotten much sunshine here in CT. TFL
