Made it Myself Mondays!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you had a great weekend! I am back today with something new! It is a new blog that I just found called "You Had me at"! It is such a fun blog!
Well the blog author Alex is doing something new called "Made it myself Mondays". You can link up to her site any type of project that you like as long as it is made by you! You can find out all the details on her blog and the link tool.

Here is what I have to share for my first project. It is a sympathy card that I did using the Butterfly from GinaK designs.
The stamps and the card stock are from Gina K Designs, the pearls and the white silk ribbon I purchased from i {heart} papers.  And the butterfly charm I found at Micheal's.
 I used copic markers and a clear sakura glitter pen to color the Butterfly.
I hope you like it!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope your check out the blog hop, there are lots of talented people with a wide range of crafts that will be shared!

Have Fun!

Unity FWF! Happy Friday Everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great week! I know I said I would post sooner, but the week kind of got away from me! Plus I decided I wanted to wait and post this card for FWF!

It is the Mother's Day card that I did for my Mom! I thought this image of the family of birds was perfect since there are four of us in my family. My 2 daughters and my husband, So the four of us singing Happy Mother's Day! LOL
The birds also fit the "Tweet Tweet" Unity challenge this month as well!
Oh, and a Kit of the Month also! :D

 I used dp from October Afternoon,card stock from GinaK,nestabilities, the scallops I did using my new Cricut Expression that my husband bought me for Mother's Day! He is so sweet, trying to make things easier for me and my RSD and carpal tunnel issues. However I think  carpal tunnel comes with the territory though right!! ;)

The trim is from a grab bag I bought from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  She has different color groups for 4.25 a bag! So worth it!!
I have another Mother's Day card to post that I did for my Mother-in-law and I used the sketch challenge for that one. I will post that one tomorrow! I promise!

Well Have a great Day!
We have exciting news coming on the {ippity} front, so stay tuned!

Blessings and Hugs,

A receipe page!

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a recipe page to share with you! It is a challenge that Unity Stamps has for National Scrapbooking Day which was last Saturday.
I have wanted to start  recipe books for my daughters for quite some time so this was just what I needed to get me started! They each have their own favorites,so I will try to personalize them.

The first one that  I did is my youngest daughter's favorite sauce....a Bolognese meat sauce that I found on food TV years ago by Emeril Lagasse, It is really good!  :D

The base is kraft card stock and the dp and journaling cards are from October Afternoon. The stamps are Unity stamp co. "Kitchen Logic" and "Homemade by"...the apron and oven are from kitchen logic and the plate of spaghetti and meatballs ( above the cow) are from homemade by. The ink is tuxedo black and cantaloupe by memento.
Since not all of the directions would fit on one journaling card, I used a second and slide it under the first,using the oven as a kind of tab to pull it out from underneath.

I had wanted to put a picture of the dish, however I didn't think I could put it on this page, it is already quite busy!
I think I will take one and put it on the back side of the page. I will put these in an album with clear page protectors, that way she could see a picture on the back .Maybe one of all of us around enjoying it together! The opening is on the side so she can slide her hand in to pull out the card.

Thank you for stopping by today. I know your time is precious,and I so appreciate it!
 I have a couple more cards to share with you this week, so I will be back tomorrow!
Until then Have a Beautiful Day!

Blessings and Hugs,

Something to share!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I just wanted to stop by and share a card I did using a technique that uses distress inks and clear embossing powder. It was demonstrated in a tutorial by Lesley Langdon on UnityTv.

I used 2 different stamp kits from Unity "Insightful Meadows" co-brand with Donna Downey,and "Carte Postale" a co-brand with iron orchid!

I hope you like it!

Thank you for stopping by!

Blessings and Hugs for a Beautiful day!

{ippity} Monday! Oh, and a Mother's Day Sale!! WooHoo!!

Hi Everyone!

Oh my goodness I have been gone for a while!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter filled with many Blessings!

I am here today with a card for the final part of our {ippity} Twist challenge for April!
AND please see my {ippity} sale page for all the info on my Mother's Day Sale!! :D

The last 2 parts of the challenge was a photo inspiration and the twist of no sentiment.
Here is what I have to share with you today! I hope you like it!

 I used the {ippity} set called "Best Wishes and Blooms" for this very simple card. The image was cut out using rectangle nestabilties plain and scalloped. And I colored the image with copic markers and for the glitter used a clear spica glitter pen. The twist part of no sentiment is kind of nice since it allows you to choose something for the inside to fit whatever occasion you may need. I think this card would be good to brighten some one's day,for a birthday or a thank you card as well!

The background paper from MME reminds me of the lanterns that are floating above and around the chair in the photo inspiration for the challenge. As well as the Hot Air Balloons for the sense of whimsy and the feeling in the air of a cool summer day! The Dp that the image is mounted on is from October Afternoon and the card stock is Gina K pure luxury. I found the Hot Air Balloons at eyelet

Thank you for stopping by today! I will be back soon. I did a card using one of the techniques that Lesley Langdon did on Unity Tv (u tube) a couple weeks ago using distress inks and clear embossing powder. It was sooooo much fun! I thought I had already shared it but I guess I didn't! :)
Have you checked out Unity Tv yet? If not you should!! :D

Oh! and by the way, the {ippity} blog is going to under go some changes! They are being very secretive right now but they tell us there is some really exciting stuff coming!! So there won't be a month long challenge for May, BUT they say it is going to be worth it! Which I am sure that it will be!!

I will be back soon!

Have a great week!
Blessings and Hugs,
