Hey Stud, it's Friends with Flair

Hello Friends, it's Friends with Flair at Unity today. Today I'm sharing a quick card for one of my Uncle's birthdays. I actually got this one in the mail on time and he should be receiving it on his birthday! A miracle for me. One of my new years resolutions is to not be so flaky with my card sending. So I am getting a running start on the new year. I hope to have another post tomorrow but who know with me. Flaky remember? It's not that I'm not excited to share my little creations with you it's just that I am a flake. Yep I said it. The first step is to admit I have a problem right?

This stamp is a Unity Itty Bitty "Hey Stud", get it here. It isn't very old and I've had my eye on it for a while. Unity always runs great promotions so I just waited for the right time to strike! LOL. The paper and K&Company Cut and Past Stack, which I have used to death! This paper looks pretty unassuming but is SUPER versatile!

Leave me a comment, I may be the last entry since it's late and I didn't get a chance to upload this earlier. Unity give a prize to one random participant and one random commenter. Yep, flake :-( That's okay cuz I love Unity and love my Uncle so I'm happy I was able to make him this cute retro card.

Friends with Flair Christmas

Hello friends, today is Unity's Friends with Flair. Yay Unity! This cute little snowman is from the November Kit of the Month. I don't have any coloring tools but I'm thinking Santa has some treats up his sleeve ;-). So excited!

I made him by paper piecing which is so fun to do also. the red pokie paper is DCWV 'Tis the Season Stack, the Kraft is Coor'dinations (the best sturdiest kraft ever) and the other cardstock is  American Crafts, the fluff ball, ribbon and twine are from Michaels. I inked him up with Memento Tuxedo Black and used Tim Holtz ink for the back ground. Also, I used a Marvy snow pen for the top of the snow, added stickels for the rest. I used distress stickels on top of the birdhouse and on the fluff ball. Super cute right?

So if you are not a Kit of the Month member go here and make it happen. Trust me you will love it.
Unity is giving away an awesome prize to a random participant and commenter so leave a comment and maybe we will bring each other some luck! ;-)

Hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting my little blog. I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy this beautiful season with your loved ones. Until next time Amigas.

More Christmas Cards

Hello Friends, just checking in again with more Christmas cards. I had made a promise that I would have some pajama and movies days this week because it was the first week that they are on vacation. Yeah that was unrealistic for sure. I have a million things to do and have not wrapped one gift. In our family Christmas dinner is on Christmas Eve so I basically always have one less day for everything.

Am I the only one? Well heck no! This is par for the course for Moms, in addition the Hubs is off the the next 4 days so my schedule will be thrown off for sure. Although he is a delightful Hubby he just throws everything of kilter with his relaxing self.

So here are a couple of cards that I made. Lotsa different manufacturers and materials, I will share later today. I am off to take one of my twins to get a tooth repaired at the Dentist. Yep, sucks!

Hope you like them and as usual, thank you so much for visiting my little blog. Until next time amigas.

Christmas Cards Yay!

Hello Friends, just wanted to share some very simple cards I made in between all of the Christmas madness. Yep it's December 21st and I'm mailing my cards today. Bad Jazz! It had been a heck of a month. I'm sure for all of you as well. I think Moms should get a spa day on December 26th! I just got a call from the Hubs that he FORGOT about his office potluck and it's in a few hours so can I whip something up? Man, he is lucky he is such a sweet guy! Or else I would have gone ballistic. Seriously, so lucky to have such a wonderful hubby but I'm not too bad myself. If even for the simple fact that I didn't strangle him, LOL!

So the first two cards are made with DCWV papers. LOVE! The stamp is Inkadinkado and was embossed with silver embossing powder. The snowmen are some super cheap but pretty cute stickers from Walmart. Yep Walmart, they were like $1.50 for a big sheet. The ribbon on the second is Joann's. The third card is made with Colorbloc glitter paper, and Me and My Big Ideas Mambi Chips, a Wilton doily and a Cuttlebug embossing folder, some silver ink and there you have it.
I had heard of the Mambi Chips and found them at Joann, I really like them and think you will too. They have a retro chic, cute feel to them.

I hope to be back before Christmas with more cards. Lots to share. Until next time Amigas.
