It's Friday and that means it's time to HOP! & a new Blog Candy Winner!!!!

Good morning! 
Yes I am typing this first thing this morning because I was out running errands until 8 last night and my computer never came out of its bag. 
Anyway when I purchased the Card Creations magazine I also purchased the Stamp It Cards. I am just loving the inspiration I am getting from these magazines. This weeks card was inspired by Lisa Henke's creation on page 39 in Stamp It Cards magazine.  This is identical to hers except for the papers  and no stitching as I can't figure out how to work my sewing machine (lol). 
I used my stamps from the KOM set Following My Heart
I colored in the scene with my copics and sponged some blue for the sky! Can you tell I decided to put some dimensional glue on my sun? It looks cute in person.
My threading is done with my white gel pen.
I used Basic Grey paper from the Lime Ricky set! My orange paper and ribbon is PTI.  My punches for the sentiment and the edge are both SU along with my blue flower button. 
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
Make sure to check out all the talent over at the Unity Blog!

Oh yeah!  Pea never claimed her blog candy so I went to and picked a new winner! 



Amy please email me you address so I can get this box of goodies in the mail! 

Thanks everyone and have a fun hop!

Altered Art! Oh How I LOVE making it!

Happy Wednesday!  I hate rushing through my week as we only live once. I want to savor every minute I have in life but during the week of ISAT (Illinois' Standardized testing) the week can't go fast enough.  I forced myself to create last night despite just wanting to jump into bed at 8pm.  Things could be worse right?

Over the weekend I created this frame for my close friend and co-worker, Kathy. She needed something to give as a gift at a baby shower and asked me to create a frame.  So I did! I just love altering frames.

I used stamps from this Unity set - Shoot for the Moon!



Recipe - 
Stamps - Unity Shoot for the Moon!
Ink- Color Box chalk ink - dark blue
Embellishments - Martha Stewart
Paper - Yellow and Blue - Papertrey ink - Designer paper - SU
Other - Mod Podge® Matte & Glossy Finish on Moon and cloud
Frame - Michael's ($2.99)

The entire frame only took a few hours! 

Happy Wednesday and have a great week! See you on Friday for the Unity Friends with Flair!

When you said HIP HOPPING FRIDAY WITH A BIG BANG you weren't kidding. Love the cards. Donna Downey has always been one of my favorites. Whoo-Hoo, the Blinkie. And you're giveaway is awsome. I've never tried SU paper (but sure would love the chance) and I'm signed up for the KOM from Unity, but don't have the three you are giving away. Mmmmmmm. Have a great weekend and thanks for the chance to win and sharing you inspiration.
Make sure to email Unity for your free stamp set!
