Friends with Flair!!!! I'M BACK!

So my life has been really crazy. Trust me! I won't go into any details but let me just tell you how awesome it is to be creating again! I've missed my supplies and my Unity/Ippity stamps!!!! One of the first things I made for the wall in our kitchen was a frame to match. I LOVE how it turned out and I can't wait until I can make more.

Check it out:

I loved it so much I had to turn it into a card! I've been watching tons of Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday videos and am learning so much!

My last card was one I did for the WCMD Unity challenges. I actually made about 20 of the 23 challenges but didn't get them posted in time. Oh well! This one was to stamp on fabric USCWCMD05.

Sorry I don't have my supplies listed but if you have a specific question I'll be glad to answer you if you send me your email address!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to stop by the Unity blog for the complete list of FWF blog participants!

Long time huh???

Hello my blog friends! Sorry it's been so long! It's been a little crazy around here but I wanted to share some of the wonderful creations I made at Donna Downey's Inspired weekend! I had a blast and can't wait until next year! Thanks Jenn for inviting me!

This first card I actually made yesterday. I had to use my newest stamps from Unity/Cosmo! Love these images! This card uses stamps from Garden Variety and "Get Scrappy with" Material Girl. I made this card my my DD's teacher. I'm going to attach a gift card to the back of the tag.

This next piece of art was from Suze Weinberg's class. I had a blast learning to play with beeswax! I love how this turned out!

Close up:

This next piece is a mini journal album. We learned how to create these wonderful roses! I want to make tons of them! Thanks Stephanie for a great class!

This next image is one of my favorite items we created this past weekend. I really loved painting freehand and adding the glass, although time consuming, was relaxing. All that's left to do is to grout it but my DD took it from me the moment I got home and says she LOVES it the way it is! Dara Troshane was the brilliant instructor, thanks Dara!~
Prima, Donna and some Tattered Angles glimmer mist make a great combo! The mini camera bag was fun to do even though it took me forever to get my hands from looking like Elphaba's or Shrek's!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to post more soon!

FWF Last day of April!

I can't believe my Birthday month is over! Boo-hoo! It was a great month! My next few months are going to be crazy around here! We've got another move coming up. Looking forward to it but not to the added stress! If I'm not actively posting on my blog you'll know why!

Did you see the new Unity releases??? I already made my purchases! I can't wait for them to arrive! Yeah!!! For today's card I used Unity's Triple Take Anniversary Challenge #4 and Unity's April KOTM. What do you think??? I love this paper. I'm trying to use my scraps before the move.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this beautiful last day of April!

FWF and my sister's b-day!

This FWF post is going to be quick so you can make sure you see all the wonderful creations in the HOP! I have two cards to share but only the first one is using Unity! This set is called Sketchy Little Boy. I added distress crackle paint to the dinosaur's body after I colored him then added brown ink on top. The cake stamp comes from Unity's Soirees & Such set.

My second one is using a small sentiment stamp from The Stamps of Life birthday set but I just had to share! I got my inspiration from the latest issue of Paper Crafts!
I also wanted to post a Happy Birthday to my little sis Sarah! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Monday 4.19.10 H{ippity} HOP!

I filled up my previous food journal and needed a new one. This time I just bought an inexpensive mini notebook and decided to alter it. It was a bright green so I decided to paint it first with acrylic paint. Then I used some older paper from my stash to cover the front. I used two {ippity} sets: Love in Return and the sentiment from Where you Should be.

What do you think? I love it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

I have {ippity} stamps on hand so if you need a set just send me a quick email and I can get one or two out to you asap!
