Birds of a Feather ATCs

I made this ATC for my Birds of a Feather Swap. I loved this bird the minute I saw it. And, I really, really wanted to stamp it on pattern paper. I think this turned out pretty good.
Supplies: Cardstock -- SU, PP -- PSX (from my stash), Ink -- TH Brushed Corduroy, Stamp -- Growing in Unity

Friday Unity Friends with Flair

Happy Friday!!! Today's FWF card is a Birthday Card for a friend (we will not discuss just HOW LONG AGO the friend's birthday way. I'm just stretching the celebration for her. Can anyone say Birthday MONTH?"
At any rate, this card uses my first Unity set, Following Your Heart. I think there might have been one or two stamps in this set that I HAVEN'T used yet. Every stamp is greater than the next!! Fabulous set. Maybe if it wasn't quite so fab, I wouldn't have such a Unity Addiction?!?! I used my newly purchased Glimmer Misty on this card too. You can't tell in the picture but it's very glimmery (and a little splotchy but I guess that's the look that GM gives you?)
Next on the hop is Donna or got back to the Unity site. Enjoy your hop!!

Supplies: Cardstock -- SU, PP -- October Afternoon, Ink -- Stazon & SU Markers, lace from my stash, dyed w/walnut ink.

Ugly Unity/Ippity

I did the first two cards for challenges and the 3rd just trying to prove to myself I could USE the Sew What kit. I'm not digging ANY of them. I liked the first one before I used the pattern paper. I just don't like the fishy one AT ALL. There is nothing inherently wrong w/the pink one but I don't like it. If I hate all these, WHY AM I SHARING THEM??? I have no idea. They were in my craft "folder"so I posted them. Feel free to hate them, I do.

Unity Anniversary

Another card from the Unity Anniversary challenge. This was to use our first Unity set. Well, I got my first 2 together. This is from Following your heart. I {heart} the way it turned out.
Supplies: PP & Cardstock from my stash, TH Distress Ink, TH Die (on the edge) and Nestibilities (oval)

H{ippity} Hop!!

My FIRST H{ippity} Hop!! Woohoo!! Sorry about the delay but Blogger was being a pain!

I finally got a new set of of Ippity stamps. I LOVE my Fishy Philosophy but I was afraid you were getting a bit tired of it. LOL So, I offer Fall for You!! LOVING this set!!! I don't think you can tell but I stamped the birds with the cage stamp so it would look like they were inside. I am also loving this October Afternoon paper. It's mucho YUM!!! But, what will I do when it's gone! I'm using every tiny scrap of it!

Next on the hop is Carolina’s Blog or head back to Ippity. Thanks for looking!!

It's Your Ippity Opportunity!
