All Sparkles with Somewhere to Go!

Well, I just have TOO much going on this weekend!

First up, I have to tell you about the Pinque Peacock Blog Hop.


It's happening all weekend (starting NOW) thru Sunday, featuring different projects every day.
You really need to take a peek.

It's worth $15.00 in goods if you participate all weekend long!


Start on Pinque Peacock blog today and read all about it!

Come back here on Sunday!  I'll have a post as part of Pinque Peacock's blog hop!

I KNOW....I'm seriously demanding (ask my husband).

OH, that reminds me!

My next thing to show you is a card to my sweet man...


Yes!
Isn't it saltry!

I had so much fun making this card (after I fretted with my print driver/InDesign issues)
BUTTTTT......

It's fun for a few reasons:

  1. I learned un peu about InDesign and print (per meine Fotografie)
  2. Those aren't my nails, but I fantasized that they were!
  3. I am hiding it for my dear husband.  He'll find it oh so unexpectantly.
  4. It uses some fab ribbon from 3GirlJam!
  5. I am using some stamps from a company I haven't used before (the lips) and I think they are so fun. (and you'll more about them soon!)
  6. It'll be the precursor to a date!  I am going to take him out....just for fun...cuz after meeting up  with our 2nd daughter and her beau last weekend, I decided that we should go out more often...and I'm gonna take him out!
Last Update is my FWF feature.  (like I said....too much going on)


Okay, so there!  Who knew I had this much to smile about.

Go Make Something Beautiful!

I get such a kick out of your posts, Rebecca! Yes, indeed your card is saltry and lovely. I'm sure the Mr. will be thrilled with that one.

Have a great weekend, can't wait to pop back over to see what you've got in store for the Hop!

Love that fun sexay card :) and how you've paper-pieced just part of the background on the typewriter card - great patterns!

Great cards! I especially love the splashes of color (the harlequin stamps).
Lindsey said…
That's one hot card for your husb! Not to mention a fine precursor to a date night. As to your Unity card... Totally terrific! I love the partially-pieced diamonds in the background. (What brand of kraft is your card base?)
Gaylynn said…

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!
