Last 2009 Friends with Flair!

This week flew by! Busy with Christmas parties, baking, stamping and last minute gift shopping! I'm exhausted!

So this week for our last Friends with Flair of 2009 I have a set of gift cards with a cute little box to put them in.
These cards were EPLS as Jen Buck would say! The 3x3 cards themselves I bought and just stamped the frame and words from {ippity's} Just wanted to say set. This set is perfect for this!

The note card holder box instructions can be found here on SCS. They have the best tutorials! I again used a sentiment from "Just wanted to say", the flower is from "Because of you" and the square word piece is from "Life's little moments".

On a side note by daughter had to create an acrostic poem using the words "Merry Christmas" and decorate it nice with pictures. So what does a crafty mom do? She pulls out her stamps! My daughter stamped the letters by herself! These "Alphabetically Adorable" letters are great!

Close up shot:

Well thanks again for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday and I'll see you back in the new year!!!

{ippity} blog hop #2!!!

I don't know about all of you but I am exhausted after this past weekend and thinking about what I still need to finish before Christmas is making it worse! Ugh! I need some help! Where are those little elves when you need them? I only have one card to show you today (I made a matching tag but the pic came out blurry and I already gave it away!). I combined two {ippity} sets for this card:

Straight from the Heart
Kissmas & Mistletoe
I used Kraft Cardstock (of course!) and scraps of Bo Bunny patterned paper.
The "snow" is liquid applique. I love this stuff!
The hearts and birds are colored with Sakura glaze pens.

(sorry for the bad pic!)

The winner of my Blog giveaway from my FWF post is random #9 which is:
Stampin Cats! Please contact me so I can send out your Unity goodies!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love!

Friday Friends with Flair and my 100th post!!!

Happy Friday! I love Fridays! I love to share with you all my little projects! Today is going to be short! I made a little chalkboard ornament for my DD's teacher. She loves owls! The owl is from Unity's Oct. 09 KOTM and the "Wise Guy" and hat are from Cornish Heritage Farms. I also used white liquid applique on the hat.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Also because this is my 100th post one lucky person who leaves me some love will win some Unity "goodies" from me! (not a Unity sponsored giveaway!)

1st {ippity} blog hop!!!

Welcome to {ippity's} first ever blog hop!!! I am so excited to be part of {ippity}! Unity is a wonderful company and their stamps are amazing! For the complete list of {ippity} blog hop participants head over to the {ippity} blog.

Check out a few cards I made to share with you!

Using Eryn's wonderful masking tutorial I made a Valentine's day card! I LOVE how this turned out! The background in the heart is from the set Because of you. The "you stole my heart" quote and mini heart is from Straight from the heart set and the frame is from the set Just wanted to say.

This next card I cased from Deb Felts. I saw this card on Banana Split Sunday Challenges and knew I had to case! I love the simplicity of this! Really it took me less than 15 minutes to make! This card uses Kissmass & Mistletoe and the tree's are from Unity's Batch of Bitty Fun.

And last but not least Christmas Wishes was made for the Limited Supplies Challenge #LSC249. This was tough! Only use white and one other color!

If you have any questions on how I did something or what I used please ask away!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! If you just "gotta" have one or all of the sets I showcased today check out my {ippity} page!

Snowbody like you

I made this tag for the ways to use it challenge WT247 on SCS found here and this weeks Color Challenge CC247 found here. I used {ippity} set Kissmas & Mistletoe, vanilla, black and suede cardstock, twine and a circle punch (to creat the corners and circle for the ribbon). As Jennifer Buck always says: "EPLS"!
