Friday Unity Friends with Flair

Talk about cutting it to the wire!! I was up at 5am making this card. I haven't been feeling great for the last few days. I went downstairs last night w/every intention of making a card but was too tired & wrung out. Went to bed instead! Now, it's 8:46, I'm sitting at McDs (my home for the last few weeks trying to upload this before the 9am deadline!!

Anyway, this doesn't look quite as good as I envisioned. I thought the cut out words would look a little better than they turned out. I'm probably going to redo this & see if I can make it look better. But I like the CONCEPT!!!

Supplies: Carstock, SU & Bazzill, PP -- October Afternoon, Ink -- Pallet Hybrid & SU, Stamps --Unity Following my Heart.

Next on the hop is Donna or head back to the Unity site for the full list of participants.

Hello, I Love You

This was my first attempt at Paper Piecing for the Ippity Challenge last week. After I was done with it, I decided I didn't like it. Cutting a detached image out just doesn't feel like paper piecing, as far as I'm concerned.
Supplies: Stamps -- Ippity Because of You, Cardstock -- from my stash, Pattern Papers -- Basic Grey, Ink -- Colorbox Chalk inks

Hippity Hop

Hippity Hop everybody!!! I know I'm hopping around here. Hubby's out of town, Becca's got Driver's Ed for one more week & Nick's "working" at the library today. Hop, hop, hop goes the mom taxi!! Only 9 months & 1 week until Becca can start driving. LOL

On to today's card. I picked the PP and then the matching colors. I knew I wanted a circle inside a scallop so I stamped & cut that. The card needed something else but the PP seemed too busy for everything I tried: ribbon, buttons, primas. Nothing looked right. Well, if the paper's too busy, lets add STAMPS!! LOL I pulled out the tubs of MM paints that I HAD to have an probably haven't used in at least a year. Pulled out a Unity swirly and, I don't know about y'all, but I think it works.

Supplies: Stamps -- Ippity Because of You and Unity Growing in Unity, Cardstock -- Pink from my stash and Cool Caribbean from SU, Ink -- ColorBox Chalk Ink & MM paints, nesties and Fiskars threading water punch.

Now, on to Angie's blog or you can go back to the Ippity blog for the full list. Have a great Monday!!!

It's Your Ippity Opportunity!
