Lady Bugs.........

Hello all.......
Just a quick post tonight to show another card I made using the ladybug border from my Unity June Kit of the Month . I stamped it a couple of times and used my 3/4" square paper punch to get 6 different "pieces" to use. The close up shot is supposed to show how the Crystal Effects on them looks. I also put some glitter in the tail ends of the "ladies" and center of the flowers for added effect.
The paper is all PTI - Pure Poppy, Spring Rain, and White.
Finished it all off with some matching PTI ribbon and paper piercing at the bottom.
That's it!

Pocket Full of Sunshine!!

I need more than a pocket full of sunshine right now!! The weather here has been down right crappy and it is just getting worse. My little guy got rained out of soccer camp yesterday and today!! We are supposed to take in fireworks tonight, but that may not be happening either.
Anyway - here is a card I put together the other day (when it rained).
I used my July KOTM from Unity and my old favorite Distressed Dots!
The cloud is also from the set, but I wanted it blank, so I stamped it and then used the other side. Pretty simple. Added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the pocket and sun's rays for an added touch and that's it! Super easy!!
Well, since it's still raining, I might as well get to stamping today! Thanks for stopping by!

Hangover post..........

Gonna make this a quick post - it's late!
This card is based on a sketch that Jenn Buck had up for the last guest designer challenge. I used one of my early Unity purchases for this one. These stamps were once sold in a kit, but are now available individually - you can check them out HERE.
Added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the Wish Bubbles and some ribbon to complete the card. That's it...........if you need more details let me know!
Enjoy your weekend!!

Trendy Trees

Hello All!
Haven't posted to my blog in a while - quite busy with family issues and stuff, so this was not at the top of my list.
Anyway, I have a post to share tonight and hope to keep at it until my final semester of college starts next month.
This is a "generic" card set I put together using the new SU! In Color Soft Suede. The stamp set used is also SU! Trendy Trees. Very cute! It's a 2 step stamping set and the tree trunks are one stamp and the leaves/tree tops are another. The Mellow Moss strip on the cards was run through my crimper for added dimension. The ribbon is also part of the new In Color stuff. You can use the polka dot side or turn it over and use the solid side.
I left this set with no sentiment so it may be used for anything! Sometimes its nice to just grab a cute card and send it with a little note inside for no particular reason!!
Thanks for stopping by - catch ya later!!
