Clean and Simple



Borrowing the design I used for Perfectly Pink swap, I put a few "blues" together for March's Card for a Cause, which is submitting cards to an organization that works with women struggling with cancer. They provide them with gifts, cards, support, and all around encouragement. Great cause, huh?

These came together pretty quickly, since I already had a basic design in mind. Thank goodness, because this is a busy month.

Oh, and have I mentioned lately....my Christmas tree...yes, still up. I think that should be a goal this month, huh? I really REALLY need to take it down and put it away...Beyond embarassing. I keep thinking about what my good friend Heidi would say if she knew!

I am pretty sure I would love to see a picture of your Christmas tree still up:)
Your kind heart inspires me! What a great cause! You make me want to be a better person!!
Is the card you made one sided or does it open up? I love the idea. Very simple yet elegant.

Beautiful card! I love the simplicity! I had to laugh at the Christmas Tree. My parents just took theirs down and mine is fixin to go back up in June or so. My husband is military and will be deploying soon and missing Thanksgiving and Christmas so we are doing it all early. We will be the true meaning of Christmas in July! :) Good luck with your goal of getting it down! :)

ROFL I am just praying that it is an artificial tree or else it probably looks like Charlie Brown's. I love that card. I have that die, so you just gave me some great inspiration!!!

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
