TGIF, Unity peeps!  This is all I have today.  I love this washi tape and instantly thought of this adorable itty bitty to pair with it.  My card didn't come out too well but I have ideas for improvement.  One might be to keep this furry beast away from my work area:-)  She is very needy today and wants to be in my lap so....

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and visit all the Unity peeps.  And, remember Unity is having a fabulous sale so check it out!

FWF - Hot Weather Fun!

I am trying to make some cute sachets and this is what I have so far.  The "gossip, hot flashes & crazy" set is one of my new faves!!!  I am going to use ribbon to tie them - there is a casing in there and I plan to add lavender to them.  I think they are pretty cute!

Don't forget to go to Unity for their great sale!!!

Reverse Confetti SFYTT #2

I know I a am a Unity addict but once in a while, I spy something else that I must have!  This time, it is Reverse Confetti by Jen del Muro.  As you may know, the Texas State Regent's symbol this term (DAR) is the peacock and I bought this set "Peacock Pretties" the moment iheartpapers posted it on Facebook.  I also found a peacock background embossing folder that I love!  I always visualized using it with peacock and purple papers.  The background paper is American Crafts Dots and Stripes that I found at Target, of course there are some purple Webster's Pages bloomers I have been hoarding, and some purple pearls.  The focal images are the feather and sentiment from "Peacock Pretties."  I am in love with this set!  I used Concord Grape distress ink on the embossed peacock paper and some Versamark chalk ink for the feathers.

I hope you all like it, I love it!!!  I can't wait to make some more peacock-themed cards to raise funds for our chapter!

Happy Sunday and wish me luck.

FWF on final Friday of vacation:-(

Well, Monday I will be back at work after a several day tour of DC and New England.  Got to spend time with family members in both places so it was fantastic!

I live in Dallas, of course, and it is so hot right now that I cannot stand it!  Before I hit middle age, I was much more resistant to it.  At least I think I was!  Anyway, the June SMAK kit is one of my favorites ever!  As soon as I saw the sun rays, I was in love....  here is the card I made for today to reflect the heat.  I need one of those "You're a hottie" stamps to complete this but I haven't bought it yet:-)

Below is what I really think about today:-)  Please don't take offense but this washi tape was on super markdown for a reason - the "o" doesn't fit on a card this size when you use the hand:-)  It is perfect, though, and definitely captures what it feels like outside.

Have a great weekend, everyone!!  Remember to check out the Unity sale and the other friends so you can win some more stamps....
