All I can say is this....

There is NOTHING better than spending a day off relaxing amongst flowers and friends.

I took the day off because it has been ABSOLUTELY beautiful lately....reminds me why we endure the winter...and this year, we had no excuse of "cold harsh winter", because it was truly quite mild.  Very few days ventured below 30 F.

But still, the delight of spring has few opponents.

Anyway, this card is "Les Fleur de mon ami" because it celebrates renewed friendship.

And, of course, since this is FWF, it's featuring a couple Unity Stamps and we're amongst friends!

Also the images...they are like spring buds...afresh and new and not yet fully bloomed.  Okay, silly analogy.....but you get it.  These are COMING to your mailbox soon, should you be as excited as I was to see them....

And another delight of spring for me has been my daily walks with sir Oliver and bella Layla....

My silly girl being her bold self.... You can't really tell from this shot, but there is probably 4 feet of air below her under the log.  The trails we walk are shared by mountain bikers and this is one of the stunt paths they can take.   And of course, the bold little ones with no fear.  They can take it too.  

She even went back over it a couple times just to make sure I got a decent shot of her being triumphant!

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!
