Happy Friday and FWF!

I have been trying to squeeze out some Christmas cards since it is quickly approaching. I made a set of 5 cards that I will package and either sell or give away as a gift. I made them using the October KOTM from Unity. I love this kit and love November's even more. If you are not a monthly kit member.....WHY AREN'T YOU? They are amazing and so much fun. Here's my set of cards:


Here is another card I made using the same KOTM:

There are many other talented ladies on the blog so please head over and leave them some love! Thanks for stopping by,

It's Release Day!

Hello, today is finally release day. This is my first release and it was hard keeping them to myself waiting for today but I am super excited to share some cards I made using these beautiful new stamps. There's lots to see today so I'll make this short and sweet. I made both of these cards with the new stamp set "Sing a New Song". I love this set and isn't that bird adorable?


Here is the second card I made. I just love this paper and love the stamps more:

Sorry the photo is a little blurry. Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by all the other blogs to see their wonderful creations. Beginning today, I have all the new stamp sets in stock and ready to send out to you.

Thanks,
Crystal

A quick card.......

I was in desperate need of some crafty therapy so I made this card. I will not have much crafty time starting tomorrow due to finals being this week. However, I will begin my last 2 classes on Monday which puts me that much closer to graduation! Wow...what a journey it has been. I don't know how Isaac and Sal have put up with me for these past 16 months but I love them more for it. It has not been easy and putting up with me has been even harder I'm sure. They deserve all the credit for helping me reach this tremendous goal for me. Sooooo.....here's my card: 


I am really happy with the way it turned out. The blue background paper is from my stash. The clouds are a stamp from the October Unity Kit of the Month (isn't it great?!) as is the sentiment at the bottom. The sun is from the {ippity} stamp set "Quotes a 'la Happy". The ribbon and sun were colored with Sunflower Glimmermist. This card reminded me of the fact that there are no bad days, each day is what we choose to make of it. I hope this puts a little sunshine in your day!

H{ippity} Hop....it's November already!?!

Happy Monday everyone and happy h{ippity} hop! My mind is still unable to grasp the fact that it is November already. This is my favorite time of year with the holidays on the way and so many festivities and functions taking place. Today I want to share a little Christmas decor that I made using a $1.00 wooden house from Joann's and leftovers stuff from my stash. I did not use anything new or did not buy anything used on this little house. This is also my first time trying anything like this and I am pleasantly surprised with how it came out. I hope you enjoy it as well.

The house started out as bare wood that I painted white. The bird is a mirror from Heidi Swapp that has been in my stash forever. The poinsettia and leaves are from Prima and are from last year. The snowflake rub-ons are Basic Grey from the Wassail collection.

This is the side using the Unity music Stamp on the roof along with Webster paper covering the roof and side. There are more Basic Grey rub-ons for the flowers.
