Hope everyone had a great week and are ready for the long weekend.

This weeks card did not start out this way. I used the Angie Girl set and stamped the flowers all over the card. I even added the butterfly from the with sympathy set.That didn't work out so well so I made it a window card. Again, I didn't like it. Then I remembered a card done by Cheri and the Chick Challenges with Ippity sketch #31 and made this card.

Ippity: Angie Girl
Unity: with sympathy & bitty itty bitty

A Christmas Challenge

At Sue's Cricut and Crafts there is a monthly Christmas card challenge. You are to make 6 cards for the monthly theme/color. The cards are then voted on and the winner gets a prize. This month's color is blue or purple. This was definitely a challenge for me. I rarely make blue cards for Christmas and I never make 6 of the same card. Here are my cards:

FWF & a little mixed media

Happy Friday!!
I finally decided to try making a mixed media project. I had some 5x7 pieces of chipboard and decided to use them. Of course, I poured out too much decoupage glue and had to make two. 
 On this one I used the Christy Tomlinson stamps and scrap paper. I also found an old star stamp roller. 
On this one I used a few Ippity stamps along with the Christy Tomlinson stamps, scrap paper, and a Heidi Grace rub-on..
These were fun to make. And I still have 5 more pieces of the chipboard....

Unity stamps: Christy Tomlinson SHE Leaped, Reversed Punchinella, Distressed Quilt
Ippity stamps: Time for Friends & Wine, Music of my Heart, and Bloom & Simplify

**the Bloom & Simplify is on loan to me from my sister. Thanks Pam!**

On the Chick Challenges with Ippity blog there is this sketch and for some reason I had a hard time with it. Maybe because I wanted a more masculine look.
I tried several different papers but I wasn't happy with any of them. I started flipping through my 6x6 paper pads and came across this from the Authentique Celebrate pad. Sometimes all you need is the right paper and the right sentiment.
The sentiment is from Ippity's 'Just wanted to Say'. I love this set and use it a lot. 

This Thursday, May 10th, is the Ippity May release party. I'm looking forward to seeing the new kits. Hope to see you there!

Happy Birthday....{to me}

Today is my birthday so I decided to share a couple birthday cards I made using the Unity 'quiet essence' kit and some colored vellum. I wanted this kit for a long time and finally bought it. This post from Ruza  reminded me how much I wanted it and inspired me.

I want to say Thank You to Sarah Mailloux  at
She sent me 2 Itty Bittys, some 6x6 paper, and a piece of very cool ribbon.
**Either my computer or Blogger is not allowing me to upload a picture :( **
But, anyway, Thank You Sarah. It's an awesome present and you didn't even know it was my birthday!
