This is one of my favorite kits.  I love being able to just 'punch out' each piece to stack on the next.  It provides such WONDERFUL dimension.  Here's a close up.....

My Sweet Unity

It's been far to long since I've posted for Unity.  I've been on a bit of a hiatus and it's so good to be back.  I'm excited to share some samples of the new Susan Weckesser stamps.  I will have another to share tomorrow.  Take a peek at today's....

How cute is that little snowman!  LOVE him!  This felt like the perfect sample for today.  It decided to get cold here again.  I shouldn't be complaining, we've had a VERY mild winter so far.  I think I've gotten used to the 'warmer' weather!  When it started lightly snowing yesterday it was a bit depressing.  Viola!  The perfect card for that type of weather!  :-)

You can find more about this stamp and the rest of the line at the Unity site.  I will post more tomorrow.

Wire Works

Hey Peeps!  It's time for a Flower Soft Wire Works challenge.  Each month the DT is 'challenged' to come up with creating a project using Flower Soft wires.  This month I came up with something a bit EPLS {easy peasy, lemon squeezy}.  Take a peek....

I opted to color my wire and use it instead of twine for the tie in my button.  EPLS...but a nice touch in a pinch.  The image is from the Mabel Lucie Attwell line.  The patterned paper is from Jillibean Soup.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday, Dear Friend!

I'm so excited to be part of my sweet friend, Kimber's birthday blog hop!  I fell in love with Kimber the first time we met.  She is such a sweet person and SOOOO much fun to hang out with.  When I sat down to create a card for this hop I started to go with a traditional birthday and then this little stamp just jumped right out at me....

Perfect!  ;-)  'You make me happy when skies are 'gray''....yes, I can see Kimber shaking her head right now.  :-) You have been such a great friend, Kimber!  It just seemed perfect.  :-) Thanks for always being there!  Hope that you have the MOST wonderful birthday EVER!  {Oh, and Evan says you don't look a day over 29!  Gotta LOVE him!}

Your next stop on the hop....
