Hi...Hello....Hiya...Hola


This is probably one of the simplest designs I've ever put together, but in creating it, I have to admit that it probably took several hours of mulling over exactly where to put the ribbon, what color ribbon to use, where to put the design background, and the placement of the "Hi" stamp. But when all is said and done, think of the possibilities you can do with this clean and simple layout!

I really need to use and take advantage of all the layout designs other artist do, because coming up with my own is extremely time intensive. I'm sure this is simple enough that it isn't new - just new to me. But as picky as I am about the way a finished piece looks, I wonder, tho, because I'd still fret over the colors and details!

Anyway, I'm putting it here to remind me to use this again in the future. It doesn't look like it, but that one card was a real 4 hours of work!

I should make about a-gazillion more to use just so it can pay for itself when I go to send a card to someone, eh?

Isn't it funny that sometimes the simplest cards are the hardest to put together? The next gazillion will be a breeze. :)

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
