Friday Friends with Flair!

Is it Friday again?  My, my, my time sure does fly.  Which brings up the question?  Have you made any Christmas cards yet?  It will be here before you know it!

Here are the ones I made this week.  Of course, I used my Unity Stamps and love how they turned out.

Have you tried these before?  They are wonderful for doing multiple colors on one stamp.  They are so "juicy" that you can color several different colors on one stamp before it dries.  I LOVE them!  I always love finding something new and wonderful, so I hope you don't mind that I shared.

Anyway, thanks for looking and I hope you have a great FRIDAY!!!

Another card share...

Don't you just love all the great challenge blogs out there?

This week, I came across a few that I just could not resist.  At Inky Impressions, they have a challenge where you are to use dies or punches.  Now, how easy is that?

At Paper Take Weekly, they have a challenge called "make your own."  This challenge was perfect for me because I have been trying and trying to make paper flowers.  After several videos and tons of trial and errors, I finally ended up with something I was willing to share.

As always, thanks for looking and coming up with all these GREAT challenges!

Card Share

I made a couple cards today while waiting for the storm.  I made this card for CASology where the cue card this week is Fruit.  I had this patterned paper on my desk that it worked perfectly!  The sentiment reads, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor is cute forget the fruit!"  LOL

At Fab 'n' Funky, their challenge is no stamped images.  At first that sounded difficult, but it really is a fun challenge! 

Thanks for looking and all the work that goes into maintaining a challenge blog!

It's reveal time!

There are four ladies in our group and we take turns sending out a card kit each month.  We are to use the materials in that kit to create at least one card and then share it on a specific date.  July was Joni's month.  She put together a fun kit for us to use. 

She also sent us a digi image that we could use.  Joni is very creative and has come up with some of the cutest girls ever!  I made a card using her, but will save it for last as it is my favorite.

Here are the cards I created.

In the kit, Joni sent us strips of white fabric along with a link to a tutorial on making fabric flowers.  Well, I'm addicted!  I love making them.  They are so much fun!!!

I also made this card.  Yes, I entered this card in last week's FWF over at Unity, so you may have seem this one before.

And, here is the last favorite.  The papers are from Christy Tomlinson's SheArt line, so in true Christy style, I paper pieced her dress.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please stop by the other gal's blogs to see how they used the kit.  It is always so much fun to see how everyone used the kit differently.  Next month is my month.  I already have the kits put together and ready to mail. 
Here are the links to their blogs.  They live on the West coast so it may be later today when they get their things published, but trust me, they will be worth seeing!


Have a great day!

CAS card

WOW!  Two shares in one day!  It rained today and was the perfect day to create.  I also found a couple challenge blogs that really inspired me.  Over at CASology, they give you one word and they you go with it.  This weeks word is "happy."

Over at Fab 'n' Funky, they have the challenge to make your own flowers.  My friend Joni hooked me onto making these fabric flowers!  They are very addictive.

Here is a close up of my flower.  It isn't even blurry!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Friends with Flair

You gotta love Fridays and Friends with Flair over at Unity Stamps!  I so love seeing what everyone creates!

I am in a little group of ladies that sends each other a card kit each month.  This month it was my BFFs turn and she sent me a fabulous little kit to play with.  Our reveal date is the 25th, so please don't tell that I am posting one of my creations early. 

Here is one of the cards that I created using Unity Stamps.  The stamps set is called Good Times and is a itty bitty set.  Don't you just LOVE those!

Here is a close up of the butterfly.  It is a little blurry as I am not a very good photographer.  LOL 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Monochromatic Challenge

What a fun challenge!  Over at Christmas Card Challenges this week they are having a challenge where you make a card using monochromatic colors this week.  Here is the card I made for the challenge.  I used a paint strip, thread, and lilybee design patterned paper.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Friends with Flair at Unity Stamps

OK.  Someone posted on their blog that Friends with Flair is addicting and they are RIGHT!!!  It is so fun to share cards with the gals at Unity and see all their fabulous creations.

This week, I gave myself an additional challenge.  I only allowed myself to use what was on my scraptable for this card including the stamp.

Here is what I created. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great FRIDAY!
