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!

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 …
