Fleur


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!

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

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! To start at the beginning of th

Growing in Unity - Day 5 {Be Your Own Beautiful}

Well, here we are, my last post for the week!  It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December. I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day! I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend.  She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad.  And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago.  It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer).  So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she i
