Christmas gifts Unity style - FWF

Hi everyone! I have been getting some gifts together for my daughter's daycare teachers. After making these super cute santas out of my children's handprints, I had some salt dough left and decided to make some tags using Unity stamps.
I have a couple of pictures of the gifts I gave them today with the tags attached.
I also made a couple of cards.
Have a joyous holiday season!!

Unity KOM sketch challenge

I hope those of you in the U.S. had a nice Thanksgiving with family, friends, and great food. I have been enjoying time with my family the past couple of days and even got a little time last night to craft and then watch a movie. Tonight we are meeting some friends for sushi - my new addiction!! YUMMM!! I can't wait! Since it is the end of November, I should get some more Christmas cards done. Here is one I made last night for this month's KOM sketch challenge for Unity stamps.

I was going to put a snowman peeking out on the side, but he looked decapitated so I decided against it. :)
Here is the sketch if you want to play along.

FWF - Welcome little gal

Good Friday to you!! I have a couple of colleagues expecting babies very soon. One is due tomorrow and the other in a month. I made a sweet little card to give to one of them when the time comes. I love this little dress and shoes. It is SO cute!!! I love that when I cut around the sentiment it was shaped like a sideways heart. Perfect for all the love a mommy gives her baby, I think!

I'm linking this up to Unity Friends with Flair. You can see other projects here. Please check out my pumpkin card in the post below :) Have a great a weekend!!

Tres calabazas

I started this pumpkin card before Halloween, and just wasn't able to finish it in time. I have very few precious moments in my craftroom as of late and stole a few minutes this afternoon to finish this one up. I decided it could work as a fall card, too. Do you ever have a hard time cutting into papers? I love some double sided patterned paper I have in my stash, but I love the other side too much to actually cut into it, yet. I had a lot of those papers pop up during this project. Maybe next time :) I'm linking this card up for the Unity Challenge this month.

Have a great weekend!!

A card for Play Date Cafe and Paper Issues

I found out that one of my cousins is starting chemotherapy this week. I made her a card to let her know I am thinking of her and to help her with positive thoughts. I hope that this will help her a little. Paper Issues is having a blog hop with my favorite stamp company Unity Stamp Company today. There were so many great projcts, full of inspiration. Stories of people passed on and people who have beat the disease. I so hope that a cure is found....SOON!!! I am linking this up to their challenge of Believe in Yourself and also to The Play Date Cafe with the color challenge of flame, mulberry, and grape. The Play Date Cafe is celebrating its 3rd anniversary. You still have time to play along with both challenges. Have a great week, everyone!!!

Good Sunday evening, all. Here is my entry for the Banner challenge. I just love this little onesie hanging on a line stamp. I have several friends who are having babies in the next couple of months so I better get going on some more baby cards for them :) This one turned out just how I pictured it. My husband even said it was cute :) I hope you like it, too :) Have a great week!!
