FWF March 30

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week. Trips to get hubby's car fixed, trips to take my daughter to and from work, and my son turned 22 on Wednesday! I don't have any idea where those 22 years went.

Today I have a card that I entered in the Chick Challenges and the Ippity challenge. I didn't think I would like doing the sketch from Chick Challenges but I gave it a shot. I was surprised how much I liked the finished card. It's featured in the Ippity blog as a Friday Fav too. Thanks so much!!
The second photo are of two magnets I made. I get different types of magnets all the time. They come in the mail, on phone books, etc. I've been wanting to alter some for a while now and finally did it. I used sentiments from a kit of the month and scraps from my stash. It's a fun way to use up scraps.

The Unity blog has all the details for Friends with Flair and their current sale of 40% off on a lot of stamps. Ippity stamps are included too. Just pick a chick and order.

Have a great week!

Happy Friday! Today it the last day for the summer like temps. I want to get out and enjoy it so my post today will be quick.

I used a stamp from the Donna Downey Imagine It and one from the Unity kit with sympathy. I'm glad I don't need to use this card but it's good to have on hand. The Donna Downey stamps are one of my favorite Unity co brands. They can be used on so many different types of cards.

There's lots going on with Unity. Be sure to stop by the blog today. There's FWF and a sale. The sale is 55% of all Marah Johnson, Melody Ross, Simple Stories, and Iron Orchid Designs. And shipping is only $2.95!

Have a GREAT week!!

inside: Then we'll be NEW FRIENDS

When I saw this saying on Pinterest and thought it was so funny. I knew it would make a fun card. When I won the Ippity set 'time for .....friends & wine' from Crystal at Chick Challenges with Ippity I knew it would be perfect for the card.

I haven't been making any cards lately. I bought a few (5 of them) little birdhouses on a whim and I've been having fun with them. I've been painting, sanding, and adding some  decoupage to them. I'll post them when they're all done. 

If you're in need of some new stamps Unity is having a St. Patrick's day sale! And, of course, all the fun and inspiration of Friends with Flair!

FWF This weeks cards

I found some ColorBox nested inkpads on clearance at Pat Catans this week and bought 4 of them. Three of them were chalk inks. Of course, I had to try them out. The birthday card and the get well card were done with the chalk inks. I really like the look.

I also have a tip for you this week. When I bought the inks i didn't notice that some of the inkpads were loose till I got them home. I went to show my daughter one of the colors and the inkpad hit the floor. I called Clearsnap customer service to see if there was a way to glue the pad back on. She told me that any super glue type product with cyanoacrylate in it would work. I tried it and it worked.

As you know it's Unity Friday. They have a sale going on with 29 of their older kits marked down to $9 or less. Plus all orders will get a coupon for 29% off next week when they'll have new Ippity and Unity releases.

Have a great weekend!!
