Card Sketches and Challenges

I love sketch challenges! The card below is a sketch challenge from Card Patterns which Unity is sponsoring this week! I am going to a birthday party this afternoon for a little boy who loves animals so I pulled out my Wild & Crazy Bunch stamp set from Unity! The Happy Birthday image is from Whimsical Birthday. Paper is Kraft and Creative Imaginations. I sewed and distressed the edges. The inside says: From a Wild & Crazy Bunch!

This next card is for a challenge from CaardVarks! The Challenge was to make a new "tree"-themed card and to link it to their site! My supplies: Kraft ppr, Unity's Carefree Moments Oak.
The Sun and little pinwheel is from Unity's November KOTM! One of my favorite kits! The grass is just green cardstock cut to look like greass. The background was made using the great tutorial from Jeanne on SCS, Sponged Sky! Again I used my sewing machine.

Birthday gifts~last minute of course!

My daughter was going to a movie and dinner with some friends for one of her friends birthday yesterday. It wasn't her party (that is coming up!) but she didn't want to go empty handed. She knew her favorite candies are Smarties but trying to locate them was harder than I thought! We had to to go three different stores! I don't know why I didn't go to Wal-Mart first! Once I found the Smarties I knew I had to put them into something cute. This is what I came up with! Love it! My four DD's all want one of their own and so do all five of my DD's friends! Guess what everyone is getting for their birthday's this year???
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Unity + Cosmo Cricket = Wonderful! Lauren's Saturday Sketch Challenge

I made this set of four cards Sunday morning. I love all of them (one more than the others, lol). This first card is from Lauren Meader's sketch mytimes31. Great sketch!
Supplies used:
Kraft paper
Cosmo Cricket Everafter: Something True DP
Unity's March and April KOTM
Prima Flowers
Sewing machineThis next card also uses Unity's April KOTM and same paper as above. Here I tried Jeanne's Sponged Sky tutorial found HERE on SCS.
This next card also uses all the same supplies as above. Isn't this dress form great?

This card is also a sketch from Lauren, no # listed on her blog but she called it an oldie but goodie. Of the four this is my least favorite. Not sure about the hat on this card.

Can you tell I love Kraft paper??? I also wanted to use up all my Cosmo Cricket paper so I wouldn't add to my scrap pile! I was able to make all four cards with 2 sheets of Kraft and one sheet of DP! How awesome is that?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Cards for my Husband

Wow, it's been so long since I've posted! Did you all think I ran away? I wish! We did go on a little vacation though. Spent the Easter weekend with my family in Charleston, SC. We had a great time.
I made these cards to send to Dan. He gets a lot of packages from various people and likes to send them personalized thank you cards. He asked me to make him some unique cards, so I did. I love how they turned out!
Supplies: Kraft (Bazzill)
Sand ppr from Creative Imaginations
USMC stamps from Legacy Stamps
Thank you stamp from UnityThanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

Happy Sunday!

Hello! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I know I have even though its been super busy as usual. Well I have a couple of cards for you. Some of you may have seen these on SCS. The first one is a card I made for Unity's challenge 3+3=Unity. You could only use three colors (neutrals don't count) and have less than three layers. I kept mine nice and simple. The star stamp is from Unity's November KOTM. This card was made using SCS222 card sketch. I had leftover Cosmo Cricket scraps and wanted to use them up. I love this card! The inside (no pic) says "everyone needs a little help". The stamps used here are from Unity's You+Me=Happy set.

Well that's it for now. I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hip Hop Hangover

Yep, it's Friday and that means HIP HOP Hangover!!! I'm not sure how many I've done but I love them! Yesterday was Oh, Baby day HIP HOP so we all changed our SCS Avatars to our baby pics. Here is my baby pic:

Wasn't I just the cutest? I think so!

Now onto the cards I want to share with you:

This first one I made using Spunky Princess. This set was made especially for little Taylor who is fighting for her life. You can see more of Taylor's story here. Please say a little prayer for her and her family.

Next up: These adorable little baskets Unity Style! The first basket uses the three little birds from November's KOTM.

This little basket is using the Bitty Easter Blessings set.

Be sure to check out Unity's site for the specials that are good through sunday! Also check out their brand new storage system for unmounted stamps! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

Would you like a chance to win a Bind-it-all?

Was that a yes? Then check out this blog here and follow her simple steps for a chance to win! The bind-it-all is awesome! See in my previous post the little book I made using a bind-it-all! It is the best little tool ever! If I already have one why do I need another you ask? Well, first I'm hoping it's the newew pink model and if not my younger sister's birthday is in a few weeks and it would be perfect for her! She loves all the little books I make and has been wanting one for herself but won't buy one because she is getting married in June and is saving all her little pennies for that! So be sure to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
