Friends with Flair Friday

Today is Friends with Flair over at Unity.  I made this card with some of their newest releases...and I'm so loving the Christy Tomlinson stamps...OMWord they are awesome. 

and the
Vintage Scripture...(LOVE IT)

Go take a looksie for yourself at all the new releases, you'll have to get some for sure.


Fun Layout with Hummingbird

I love this collection from's so bright and cheery.  The picture was one I snapped last year of my little one.  We were at a family reunion and he was run, run, run all day, but once when he stopped to rest I was able to capture this photo. 

Tip: remember to journal on your layouts...but be creative with it.  Little notes tucked in places, journal tags, or even straight on the layout like I did to outline the photo. 

Have a happy Friday and I'll have a Unity Card for you later this afternoon...

Prickley Pear Monday

Wow it's Monday again...time just seems to fly by lately.  Today it's Prickley Pear day and I have a sneak peek stamp set for you.  It's not quite available but I wanted to wet your whistle for what's coming down the pike for you over at PPRS.  The stamp is a background stamp and I wanted to highlight how cute it is used as a background but how you could also show it as a single image. 

I just cut two of the owls out of the background stamp to create the focal embellishment.  I also had to use one of my favorite dies from Prickley Pear...Scalloped Circle.  I do love love it!

Now you need to head over to the PPRS blog and check out the rest of the design team's work...I know it's going to inspire you.

Have a great week and I'll see you soon.

Love is Everywhere

Love is themed cards are everywhere right now...releases, challenges you name it.  This is a love card I created for the Shabby Tea Rooms current challenge and also for JustRite Stamps challenge.  Both go hand in hand so it was a perfect fit for both. 

I handmade the roses using McGill punches and tools.  They take a little while to make but they are so pretty when their done.

The stamp has been heat embossed along with the letters L-O-V-E and then glittered.  It's really fun when I start playing and added things to a card like this one.  Granted there is a lot going on but the finished result is special.  See you tomorrow with more creations.
