Friendship ... Aged to Perfection



If you are visiting for the Unity KOM Blog Hop, please scroll down!

I created this card for Vivian's "It's Cocktail Hour Somewhere" swap. I just can't seem to get away from pink inspired cards!

Looking closely, you can see that I paper pieced almost the entire image. I thought it would be faster than coloring...HA! But hey, I had fun and LOVE paper piecing, so it was time well spent. There is something almost hypnotic about focusing on the details.

I must mention that with this card, I now realize that bifocals are now required 100% of the time.

I have now entered the geezer era of my life! Totally sad, considering my heart and spirit feel relatively young.

Gorgeous! Love the paper piecing! I'm still resisting bifocals. I figure I can go another year if I only work with gigantic images and do no cutting!;)

Hey, have you had trouble getting SCS to open for the past couple of days? I can't get on this morning, and I couldn't get on yesterday morning either. Did I miss an update notice or something?

What an adorable card! (I may have to buy that set - I think that image would be perfect for my friend's upcoming b-day!) The paper piecing was worth it - too cute!

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 w
