You're On Your Way Up

2nd Post

It's been a fun Crafty day where I can Make cards with supplies that I either have not even used yet or they need to be used more. Love this memory box dp( Papermaniac has a great selection) and as soon as I saw it I thought it would be a perfect match for Courtney's stamp set called Look UP. Make sure to keep checking back at Practicing Creativity there will be a new release on the 6th of April I myself cannot wait to see what Courtney has in store for us this time!!

Pixie Dust Studio Sneak Peek

I'm late with my sneak peeks so sorry that just means more for you to see tomorrow because it is release day. There are so many images I love every single one of them Kathy is just an amazing artist in every way. I used some new Basic Grey and I love the colors so soft and pretty. This is card is pretty simple and I did leave it blank as far as a sentiment because it's nice to have a few blank card around when it is time to give it to someone that is when I like to add the sentiment on the inside.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the New Release Princess Parade and it is also time for a Pixie Challenge it' s a fun one!!!

Nina's Elegant Post
DP-Kaiser Craft

I have a couple cards to share using Gina K again I just love the way these stamp so crisp and clear. First card I did a little heat embossing with white and I just love how it came out so perfect and I love the nook and pantry collection from Basic Grey with this stamp set. The second card I also heat embossed the birdcage I think I just found something new that I love to do. This Kaiser Craft paper is just gorgeous I love the colors and patterns so soft and beautiful. Paper Maniac has a few of these Kaiser Craft collections. That's it for me today it's rainy and cold perfect day for more crafting.

Happy Monday I hope that everyone had a great weekend. I am patiently waiting for APRIL 1st for Unity's big party I cannot wait!!! I thought I would share on last Easter Card with you today I Just love this Ippity kit Thoughts Of Spring so cute!! So I have had this Cosmo Cricket paper for quit some time I know the story of my life and I thought it would be fun to use this Easter egg along with the bunny stamp. I think they go pretty good together I know the egg is a little over sized but that's what makes it fun we can do whatever we want with our creations!! I do have more Ippity creations done but I am waiting for good light to take my pictures so it might not be until later today before I add them to this post. Make sure to check out the Ippity blog for the ladies taking part in the hop.

Also this week is another Pixie Dust Studio Release so i will be working on those today to have a sneak peek for you tomorrow.

Some Challenge Cards

This first card I did for Nina's sketch challenge. I love this sketch and what's even better this Dp from Websters Pages is perfect because pretty much the paper itself makes the card. The sentiment is from Lovely Shelf love the handwriting. My flower is from K and Company handmade collection

This second card is for The Pink Elephant sketch challenge this week. It's cute, it's simple that's the way I like it most of the time. I used all Cosmo Cricket goodies for this one Garden Variety I told myself I AM NOT GOING TO HOARD MY STUFF ANYMORE!!!!
I have a fabulous weekend!!!
I would love some prayers for my cousin and her husband he was dropped from a lift 20 feet and it's going to be a long recovery and I just pray for him and his family to get through this. I normaly don't like to talk about personl stuff here on my blog so I hope you don't mind me asking for this little favor!!!

Dp-Pink Paislee
Stamps-Unity KOTM march
DP-Basic Grey Green at Heart
I have a couple things to share for FWF the first car is for Get Sketchy we would love for you to plaY along with us this week it's a fun one you can go her for all the info!! I just love the stamp on this second card and it was perfect to do my favorite technique paper piecing. My third project is for Paper Maniac's theme this week to do a scrapbook page and I have to admit I have not done scrapbooking in years sad I know. I also used Unity's first Scrapbook challenge I kept it simple and small 8x8 so it's nothing to exciting but I am so happy with the end result I almost want to frame it. I used one of Unity's scrapbooking kits which is the line of circle along the bottom with the buttons. I also used Unity KOTM for March for the quote. I'm not really big into writing on my pages at the top I did write the occasion you can't really see it though. I also used Basic Greys Green at Heart I love the bright colors.
Make sure to check out all the other fabulous ladies on the Unity Blog and have a great weekend!!!
