TGIF - It's FWF!!!!!!!!!

Here is a card I did a while back for World Card Making Day.  I used stamps from a kit of the month along with some Coredination cardstock that I sanded to make the words stand out.  I love that butterfly ribbon with a little twine wrapped around it, too!

Remember to leave some love and get your Ippity here!

Friday and Friends with Flair

Finally, it is Friday!! It is also the last weekend of the State Fair which is kind of a bummer, though....

Random Integer Generator

Here are your random numbers:
The winner of the 10 random Unity stamps from last Saturday's blog hop is lucky number 7!!  That would be Jen and I have emailed you to get your address.  Have fun with a little new red rubber!

On to the next priority - a Unity stamping project!!  This seems just right for the cooler weather we are finally getting!  We had a long summer of days over 100 degrees and now it is time for some sleeping weather!

I used the Wild Honey distress stain to color my ribbon and glossy cardstock to stamp the tags.  I love this set although I couldn't locate it on the website again:-)  I love love love this tag stamp!!

So, enjoy your weekend and get your Ippity here!

[ippity] Christmas in October Blog Hop

Welcome to the {ippity} Christmas in October Blog Hop.
If you are coming from Jennie's Blog you’re on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning go to Heather’s blog. I also have a list of the participating blogs at the end of this post.

I made items from all three fabulous Ippity Christmas sets - first up are some items from "Gingham Christmas Greetings."  I stamped the tree on a onesie - my first attempt at stamping on a knit fabrics - I added some liquid pearls for dimension.  Then, I die cut a tree and stamped some snowflakes for a fun effect and put one of the great gingham sentiments on there.  Then, a tag, using snowflakes, sentiments, and the music background on the gift card holder.  So pretty in real life!

This stamp set is a bargain at $18.00 and if you buy it with any other set through midnight October 17, I will give you a 10% refund on your purchase.

Here are a few cards from "Kissmas & Mistletoe,"  love that snowman!!

And, of course, "Season of Joy," has great shapes that coordinate with spellbinders and great sentiments.

The only problem here is picking your favorite Ippity Christmas set!  Why choose when you can get them all here:-)??

Your next stop will be Nancy, thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered for a chance at the blog candy (10 free random Unity stamps) I am giving away, happy hopping! (Leave your comment by Monday, October 17 at midnight for a chance to win!)  And, get your Ippity here!!!

Friends with Flair!

TGIF!!!!!!  I am so happy Friday is here, even with Monday off it seems to have dragged on too long:-)

Here's a Halloween card I made from Marah Johnson's "Breathless,"  I just love this set.  The images are HUGE.  Although I am not a Halloween person, I still thought this was fun to make.  I used glossy card stock for the sentiment and stamped and embossed the candlesticks three times in different metals to make it look like a ghost was moving it.

Remember to leave some love to win some Unity rubber!  Come back tomorrow for the Christmas in October blog hop and see what all the Ippity Chicks are up to!!!

Happy Friday,

Chick Challenge Sketch No. 1

I finally completed a few cards, one of which is for the first Chick Challenge sketch:

I love this fabulous shape but sadly don't have a die or a good drawing hand.  As you can see, I just used  a square card with my favorite set, "Regal Greetings."

Leave some love and join me at the Linky Party here and at the Chick Challenge blog here.  And, remember to get your Ippity here!!!

Here is the hop order for Day 5:
Andrea Cloutier:

Just look at this lineup of talent!  You should have landed here from Unity's blog and the fabulous Angela Magnuson!

I am supposed to be showcasing my favorite set here and I can tell you it was one of the most difficult ever:-)  But since I love a good fleur-de-lis, I had to pick "Regal Greetings."  I made a fun card using a Tim Holtz embossing folder along with a sentiment, frame, and crown stamp that are in this amazing set.

Just take a look at this amazing set of stamps!  (I have it here so feel free to place your order over in the sidebar:-))  I wish I had some more things to show you but it is State Fair season and I spent my entire weekend there.  I love love love this time of year!  Please leave some love and move on to see Andrea.  You'll be glad you did!
