Get Sketchy 43

Scroll down for FWF!!!

This week over at Get Sketchy we had the pleasure of working with some fun brads and that is what is up for grabs if you play along with us I sure hope that you do!!! I did a CAS card for today's card using some fun GCD Studio DP and a Papertrey Ink sentiment I though it fit good with the brads on my card.


This first card is based on this weeks HH Sketch using my Minds Eye DP. Of course at the last minute I realized that I did not add all the elements that the sketch had oh well it happens!!!It was a good starting base for my card anyways.

Happy Friday it's FWF today another one of my favorite days of the week!!! Todays card uses the new Unity store kit called Life Becoming and Quiet Essence there is such a great mix of stamps in these kits and the best part you can buy the whole thing or half of it how fabulous is that!!! I love the big flowers in this kit and for mine today I paper Pieced it with some Basic Grey Dp.

Scroll down for Whimsy Haven Blog Hop!!!

So it's been a really long time since I have used any PTI and I thought today would be the day to make a quick and easy card using some of the latest products from them. Here is what I am loving lately from Papertrey Ink one is their new dies they are fabulous, second loving that they make stamps to go along with them. I have always been a big fan of their sentiment sets can never have to many of them. I love that they are coming out with felt which I have but have not used it yet I used Heather Baily felt on this card. Also huge fan of their cardstock love the fresh fun colors and love that they have ribbon and buttons to go along with the colors they come out with. Just my thoughts for todays card I made for my friend Jenny's challenge to do some stitching on your card. Ok I better get back to work I am stressed and overwhelmed by how much work I have to do we are going away for a few days next week and I am trying to get all my projects and posts done for next week it seriously has been a full time job I love it but it's alot of work.
Wish me luck!!!

Hip Hop Thursday

Once again Maria has done it again with this fabulous Sketch love it!!!! I used some fun K and Company Dp that I had gotten for a project and never ended up using it oh well I am sure I can find other uses for it . I used Delightful Little Things again man I love these quote stamps they are the best.

This second card I had so much fun creating. I have been on the look out for some good felt so I can make my own darn embellies instead of spending 5.00 for one package. So I know a couple people have mentioned Heather Bailey so I went to check it out and I adore the colors, even better she puts bundles together for you and I love that I was a little nervous because I did go a little crazy buying the stuff and I was happy to discover that my dies cut through it beautifully!!
The sentiment is from a previous Ippity kit What Matters Most.

Make sure to check out the Unity Blog for more inspiration and they have new releases coming out today boy am I in trouble!!!
