Happy Mail!!

There's just something about Happy Mail that makes a crafter's day!!! It's always so fun to dive into new paper, stamps, dies, etc.
I've been wanting to order some Amuse Studio from my friend Pat for ages.
I finally took the plunge and am so happy I did!
It was hard to pick just two stamp sets, but I went with these because I thought they would be versatile for Project Life as well as cardmaking.

Here's the first card I whipped up in a couple minutes. Love the gold and pink combo, so fun! This card was hard to photograph because of the reflection in the gold paper, but you get the "picture". LOL!

Mama Said....

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I am READY for is so cold here and I've had enough. Bring on the blue, sunny skies, chirping birds and baseball practice! Except the weatherman is calling for ANOTHER snow/ice storm for Sunday...sigh.
I mad a card with this humorous stamp set to brighten a friend's day. The flowers are springy and I'm hoping they make her smile. She is an amazing friend and is always making everyone smile and laugh! After a few months of tragedy, loss and bad luck, I am hoping things get better for her!

Have a great weekend and be sure to check out Unity's March Madness sale, along with some amazing creations for Friends with Flair.

I'm Alive!

After moving while 37 weeks pregnant, then having a baby who suffered terribly from reflux, never sleeping, going back to work....ya know, all that stuff we call life?!?! Well, I never thought I would get my craft room set up and organized. BUT, thank goodness for small miracles, I have kinda sorta done that! And now, watch out! I am back to creating and I am so happy! It's one of the things (besides my family) that makes me feel so GOOD!
With that said, here are two cards I quickly put together for my son's teacher and our babysitter. I wanted to get fancy with them, but I waited until last minute, however anything with this cool owl is sure to be cute!
Thanks for stopping by and I will hopefully be posting here a little more regularly now!

I'm joining in with Unity Friends with Flair today...YAY! Be sure to check out the Unity Blog for details on their current sale!

I miss my weekly Friends with Flair participation. I would love to get back to a regular blogging schedule one of these days! In the meantime, I made this card using another super cute Kit of the Month image and sentiment (July 2012). It came together so quickly with the help of my Copic markers!

I {Heart} Unity!!!

Just sayin'! In case you didn't know, yes, I do love UNITY!!! And have you SEEN THE NEWEST releases? Check them out HERE! Right up my alley!
This company has got to have the BEST stamps ever, so fun, funny, trendy, vintage, clean and simple...whatever your style...they got 'em!
Today I am sharing two different cards and you'll have to excuse my pictures. Ever since we moved in March, I cannot find my camera cord, so the only way I can blog is with phone pics. It is what it is, for now, til I find my cord!
Both cards use Unity's Kit of the Month stamps. The graduation hat card is from May 2013 and the lightbulb is December 2012.

We are heading into the weekend with some BEAUTIFUL weather here at the Jersey Shore and I plan on enjoying every minute of it! Go do the same!!!!

Happy Friday

I'm joining in with Unity's Friends with Flair today with a card I made for my husband for our 8th anniversary. Definitely not your typical lovey dovey anniversary card, but it suits us perfectly. He's always calling me a nerd so when I saw this cooler image and sentiment, I couldn't resist! I added the blak Tim Holtz letter stickers to spell out "Real Deal". My husband's name is Neil and through high school and after his nickname was Real Deal so I thought it would be cute to add that for him.
 I added a sentiment from the May Kit of the Month on the inside. I had fun with this card but my most favorite part (OMG!!!) is the super duper fun sunray stamp from the June SMAK kit! I will use this stamp over and over again, I love it!!!! I picked the right time to become a SMAK member, don't know what I was waiting for!

Unity has some new releases this week and some fabulous sales, so make sure to check that out after you are done looking at all of the fabulous creations made by Unity friends!
