Just Rite Stampers Challenge JRC_026

This weeks' challenge is to make a shaped card, preferably using Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I don't have many of these but I do have the paisley and I thought it might make a good strawberry.  I am known for my collection of strawberries and I always love to see them.  I started out with a template from The Cutting Cafe but I changed my mind and used the paisley die instead.  I had to take the card outside to photograph it because I didn't have enough light inside.  I figured that I would make this a little pincushion and there are a couple of pins at the top going through the ribbon.  I used a cute daisy button, added lace, and stitched around the entire card.  The sentiment and the border are both cut from Nestabilities.  I added some pearls to make it pop. I just love these Just Rite stamps!

Enjoy your day!

Hippity Hop

Happy Monday - I hope everyone is getting to enjoy a restful day off!

I have one project to share - I was hoping to have more but it has not been my day today:-)

Here's a closeup of that flower - the bling is from Webster's (courtesy of Limelight) but the flowers are from a Hawaiian lei I picked up on the clearance aisle at Target for $2.50!  It was a set of eight leis and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it - there are hundreds of flowers in four different (bright, Island colors).  Pretty cute, huh?

Happy Holiday everyone and remember to get your Ippity here!!  Visit all the other bloghoppers here.

Unity's FWF!!!

Happy Friday - we all know it means FWF is here!!!

I've got three projects today - I have been vacationing but feeling a bit under the weather so I've been less productive than I'd hoped.  Oh, well:-)

First up, another card with the Victorian Velvet distress ink - I love this stuff!  It is so perfect with this paper from the Rustic Stack by DSW - it's sort of a variation on Monday's card.  I used that big flower from Ippity's "Now and Always" and the sentiment is from "Simply Home."  I'm loving this card!

My second project is the one I've dreamed of since I used "Butterfly Beauty" for my previous coasters.  I won a Unity single of my choice a few months ago and selected "Lovely Lilacs."  I made some tiles that use part of the image and I love them!  Sorry, I just realized that the top tile is the one where I didn't get a good impression of the lilacs:-)  Sorry about that!  It still looks fabulous, though!  My lilac chalk didn't hang on very well, but I kind of like the faded look right now.

Third is a cute card with a great Unity bicycle stamp and sentiment from the August 2009 KOTM, one of my all-time favorites!

Remember to leave some love and visit all the other FWF people today here. And, remember to get your Ippity here!

And, most of all, be kind to each other.
