Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

Let long warm days and bright sunshine stick around for a bit longer!

I don't know about you, but that would be on my Christmas List.  I don't think I want my summer to end!


Well....Sigh.
At least another wonderful Friday is here!
AND
It's a long weekend!!


AND
It's another Friends with Flair.


Here is a Christmas themed card I put together tonight.  Trying to put some ideas together for my holiday cards this year.

This card features the Unity set, "Naughty or Nice". It has such a nice Vintage flair!  And, in my usual passion, I used some Merlot 3GirJam crinkle ribbon!

SO...there you have it.  It's still warm outside, there's a full-ish moon, the mosquitoes and beetles are pecking against the window..and here I sit, martini in hand, whipping up Christmas cards.

And now, off I go to check out all the other fabulous creations!

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
