Sent with care

Project #24

This is my Unity Friends With Flair post.
I promise I'll stop making CAS on Kraft cards soon. I think. I just can't help myself. : )

I made this to send off one of my ATC cards and as a Thank You to the recipient. She enrolled in Unity's Kit of the Month club and used me as a referral since I am in the club too! Thanks, Judy!
Because of her I got to pick one $25, or less, set of my choice. : ) Gotta love free stamps.

 I used one of the KOM kits too! The May 2011 set think Happy thoughts.

I love that package of mail. I wrapped it in twine to make it even more cute.

My Summer ATC card

Projects #6-23

My craft group, Crafty Enablers, did an ATC swap with a "Summer" theme. Here's what I came up with:

18 cards. Way more work than I thought it would be! I cut, I inked, I stamped, I fussy cut, I paper-pieced, I printed and inked some more, I glued and then I stitched! Whew!

And since these each took longer than my normal greeting cards I decided to count each one in my 100 Projects Challenge (even though the other participants decided 3 ATCs would equal 1 project). They took a LOT of work so that's what I'm doing! : )

I used this wonderful sun stamp from Unity's A Pocket Full of... set and pieced it with two different papers. 

 Added some I-Rock bling:
Printed out the sentiment (which I found while going through one of my old crafty mags) on my Dymo label maker and inked it in yellow.

And I FINALLY broke out my Sew Easy tool. It was seriously still in the package. Just sitting there all lonely and unused. And now it's finally fulfilled its destiny!

I am loving getting everyone else's cards! I will post a photo when they all finally get here.

Chocolate. Enough said.

Project #5 of 100

This is for Paper Crafts August Gallery Challenge which is to make a girlfriend-themed project!
It's a small 3x3 card with......


I thought it might be cute to send to a friend as a little pick-me-up, attached to some real live chocolate of course!

If chocolate doesn't say girlfriend, then I don't know what does!

Just a couple quick cards

Projects #3 and 4

These are some cards I made quickly when I ran out of notecards.

The first is a 3x3 card using some extra die cuts I had left over.

The second is just some scrap patterned paper left over from another project and some stickers (that came from Shana in my swap box!) that matched perfectly. Easiest card ever.

Through Rain or Shine...

Project #2 of 100

Here's my entry for Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop (using Unity stamps) 
 Wee Memories Challenge #63 (which is to color using at least 4 colors)

I used Unity's Rain or Shine stamp set, paper-pieced and popped the umbrella, and colored in the couple (I think I used about 8 colors!).

I love the sentiment on this set. Plus, now I want some really cute turquoise rain boots too!
