a “stamp of the week” card for feb 25

So yup, I joined my very first stamp club a few weeks ago. Unity has this great “stamp of the week” club. It makes me so happy to get that little brown envelope every single week. Even if I don’t have time to play. I can still dream.

I just got my owl in the mail the other day. I couldn’t help but ink that one up. It’s one thing to draw it….a complete other deal to stamp it.

Anyhoo, here’s my card. Thanks for stopping by to peek :)


Friends with Flair Friday (a little early)

I was ITCHING to get sketchy yesterday and decided to check out GET SKETCHY after seeing Laura’s fabulous card.

Here’s what I came up with using my UNITY STAMPS – used my WINGED HEART stamp – the LOVE stamp is retired (sadly enough – I really LOVE it!) – stamped some of the pieces over with distress ink and the dictionary stamp, “Giving it all Meaning”.

Also included a piece of a retro sewing pattern bought from the thrift store.

Thanks for coming to look!

Friday Friends with Flair



Here’s my card…I used the fishies from Hodgepodge of Happiness.

Have fun visiting all the fabulous friends today :)

Unity Wednesday Challenge

Today’s Wednesday Challenge was picked by…..ME!

I was feeling a little “blue” from my unsuccessful craft show on Saturday, so I called upon my Unity girls to cheer me up.

So you can cheer me up too :) Make a card for a CHILD and use PRIMARY colours (red, yellow and blue).

I used Mix Up of Cuteness, Distressed Dots background and some plain old cardstock.
The heart is grungeboard inked with SU craft ink.

Don’t forget to link up your cards in the Challenge Thread HERE and use the keywords Unity and USC11.


A Belated Halloween

I got a VERY good box of Unity goodness in the mail yesterday, and these cute little guys finally made it home….and only a BIT late for Halloween.

This is my take on the Unity Challenge Wednesday this week….
Go check the challenge out HERE.

This is the photo Lisa gave us for inspiration this week….
Does my card look like one of the plates? Hee hee!
I took the “flight” theme and the circle shape from these. Bats fly too :)

Thanks for looking…..and have fun with the challenge!!

For Amber

Amber recently had ankle surgery….a bunch of us from Unity are posting Get Well Wishes for her today….

Amber, I hope you are feeling better each day, and not getting too bored yet!
Soon enough you’ll be hitting the stores :)
Best to you girl….we’re looking forward to your COMPLETE recovery.
Take care and take it easy :)


Well once again, HIP HOP was a complete blast!!!!

And I finally got organized enough to get on the Friday list :)

Here’s some Unity cards that I haven’t posted here yet…..all using MIX UP OF CUTENESS (and the top one is made with BIG CUTE BUG).

I don’t have much to gab about…….I suppose that’s part of POST HIP HOP SYNDROME.

So enjoy your Friday….and if you want to check out more of the Unity girls today, go visit the Unity blog – Angela has a whole list for you to browse through :)

Thanks so much Cyndi for picking this one!!

“Since we are still in October for Breast Cancer Awareness I want to think pink!! My HOPE challenge:

1. H…Use a sentiment having to do with Hope

2. O…Put some ribbon ON your card (pink ribbon theme here, get it?)

3. P…Use something Pink!!

4. E…Embellish with something that starts with an “m” for Mammogram”

Don’t forget to link up your card into the Wednesday challenge thread in the UNITY FORUM.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Have fun creating :)

HIP HOP Wednesday Challenge

Good morning! Are you ready to HIP HOP???
Here’s the challenge to get you going and ready for tomorrow.
Lori gave us a recipe challenge this week….
So your job is to incorporate the following elements into your card:
Something clear
Stamp(s) from your latest Unity order.
And if you don’t have Unity yet, NO WORRIES!!! Do the challenge anyway, use your favourite stamp, and join us for HIP HOP on Thursday. LOADS of chances to win Unity stamps :)

LINK UP your cards HERE and if you pop it in the SCS gallery, use the keyword USC09.

Here’s mine. I used the Love Builds a Home single. I had a little trouble with the “clear” element and am not too happy with those Making Memories clear flowers….but whatever :)
Enjoy your day!

OBP and Unity FUN!

Couple more cards to post before the weekend, which is gearing up to be a CRAZY ONE!!

Tonight, I’m taking the 2 oldest girls to a sleepover in the city, popping by hubby’s work (he’s on the evening shift this week) to have a steak and potato barbeque with the other 2 kids…..tomorrow the boy has a hockey practice, then we’re going to pick up the girls, practice some last minute stuff for the massive craft sale we’re singing at (Christmas songs in October. Fun.) coming home, church on Sunday morning, quick bite to eat, hockey game for boy on Sunday afternoon and hockey meeting in the evening.


Hope you enjoy these! The first one is some yet to be released stamps (January 09) from Odd Bird Planet and the second one is a Unity Challenge card made with Tiny Trinity.

Have a super weekend!
