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!!!

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

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. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
