Fa La La La La



I'm starting to make my holiday cards and this is the month!
Not only for taking note and giving thanks, but also preparing for all the holiday fun in December. 
I have to admit that when I get in the midst of holiday preparation, I do alot of card surfing and CASEing (Copy and Steal Everything).  That and entering lots of challenges, which help inspire me. 

I am excited about this card, because it's one of the few times that I got a chance to use my SMAK kit almost as soon as it arrived!  Just got it this week and it was perfect for what I wanted to do. 

If you are interested, following are the products I used for this kit.

Product Information
All the snowflakes are part of Unity's SMAK November 2012 kit.
"Christmas Wishes" is also Unity from Joy and Wonder
The ribbon is 3GirlJam Summer Sprinkles Crinkle Ribbon from the Seasons Bundle.  
Everything else is Stampin' Up and I even took the time to add a little stitching to boot!

Speaking of challenges, if you haven't already, take a look over on the 3GirlJam Challenge Blog and submit your wonderful creation today!  They have really great prizes! (and I'm telling ya', if I wasn't a designer, I'd be stalking and submitting away cuz who wouldn't want some free stuff for their awesomeness, right?)

Well that's it for me today.  I have alot of blog trolling, comment leaving to do, and must get busy working on more cards and gifts!

I have crafting to do!

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 …
