Happy Holidays - Hip HOP!

Hey Peeps!  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday!  We have had the pleasure of being dumped on by a huge {coming from the South this is HUGE for me} snow storm.  The boys have LOVED all of their time sledding and trying out the snow ball launchers they got for Christmas.  ;)  Such a wonderful time! 

Here's my card for this week....

This one seemed perfect since it's so gray outside.  :)  It's definitely all sunshine inside though!  :)

The stamps are Jillibean Soup by Unity. 

Wishing you all a blessed holiday season!

Hip HOP!

Hey Peeps!  Back with a layout for Unity using a bit of Paper Loft.  Take a peek at what I created for this week.....

I had surgery a couple of weeks ago and have had a bit of a hard time maneuvering the stairs.  This one I started right before but didn't quite finish.  Today was a great day in my recovery but I kind of ran out of time with the sun.  ;)  

Supplies used:

Memento Ink

Now it's time to head over to Jolande's blog.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Flower Soft & Card Maker

Hey Peeps!  How fun is this!  Card Maker is such an AMAZING magazine!  I am so excited to be participating in this blog hop with them.  There were so many wonderful images to choose from this holiday season.  I opted for something 'clean & simple' and ready for the season.  Take a peek....

The image is from the Winter Wonderland Die Cut Stickers from Flower Soft.  The patterned paper is from the Paper Loft.

Now it's time to head over to the WONDERFUL

Hey Peeps!  It's hip HOP time!  :)  I'm lovin' all the brown!  It worked perfectly with what I had planned for today.  Take a peek.....

I have a tendency to gravitate towards the kraft anyhoo....Gasp! ....It's shocking, I know...  ;)

This is one of my MOST FAVORITE sentiments.  Unity has a knack for choosing the absolute, most AMAZING sentiments.  This one was perfect for me today in so very many ways.  A little reminder every now and again is a good thing.  :)

The paper for this is from The Paper Loft

The Dark Cloud

Ever have those moments.  You know, the ones where you wish you could crawl in a hole and just shut off the world?  That's the moment I am in right now!  I came home to find out that my water meter is sinking.  Ack!  How is that even possible?!  My friend couldn't shut off the sprinklers as he couldn't access the controls as they have sunk and are now covered in ....some kind of funk....and a TON of water!


The good news, the city will probably...praying that this is right, ....have to fix this without me having to figure out how I am going to pay for it.  Thank goodness!  The bad news....I've spent the entire afternoon dealing with this and trying to get the guy scheduled to come out and I have NOTHING new to share!  :(

....picking a couple of my favs....and hoping, as the repair guy will be here at some point early tomorrow....that by the time you see this I am getting really GOOD news that I do NOT have to pay for this!

I did take the boys for trick-or-treating so thought I would share one of my favorite Unity Halloween decorations......

Here's one more.....

A Card Creator

How do you like the sound of that?  Card Creator?  I {heart} anything that helps me put together a 'quick & easy' card. EPLS {easy peasy lemon squeezy}...that's my motto.  I do so love the Flower Soft Card Creators for just that thing.  Ok, yeah, I added a touch of this and that....that is how I roll, but the image and sentiment are from the Card Creator.  This one is from the Vintage line with designs by Mabel Lucie Attwell.  You can find the kit here.  Take a peek at my super EPLS card using this weeks CPS sketch and a bit of my favorite Jillibean Soup.....

This one was so easy to put together, especially when added to a ready about a 10 minute card!  Love that!

Now head over to the sweet Vicki's blog to see what she has in store for you and then over to the Flower Soft blog and Flower Soft Facebook fan page.  We've got lots in store for you many WONDERFUl samples using this super fun kit!

Sweet Santa!

OMHeck!  How easy are card toppers!  I know, I know....what the heck is a card topper!? some of you are familiar.  I get it....but I know that for many of you it's a first....think pre-stamped...COLORED...images just WAITING for you to 'decorate' them!  Seriously!  How FAB is that!

This week the Flower Soft DT is playing with the NEW Santa Card Toppers.  There are three different packages...each contain 2 designs with 3 sheets of each....just think of how EPLS {easy peesy lemon squeezy} that would be for MASS Christmas card production!

Here's what I created with them.....

How Beautiful is he!  The art work is AMAZING!  I used my Spellbinders dies to cut him out a bit and then add him to my card face.  See!  Totally EASY for mass production!  

Then be sure and head to the Flower Soft Facebook fan page and the Flower Soft blog for all of todays fun prizes!  :)

....There's a big special at the Flower Soft website for the entire Santa topper line.  You can find that here.  :)

A Flower Soft Download

Hey Peeps!  Back with a project created with one of Flower Soft's downloads.  I love 'digis'.  Love the ease of using them and how they can help to make a project move a little faster....& they are always on hand and ready to go!  This is from the floral download section.  Take a peek.....

These are compatible with Spellbinders dies.  Each download lists which die it works with.  This extra step makes creating a breeze.
