Belated Valentine Goodies!

I'm a little past due here, but I wanted to share Luke's first Valentine's treats for his class at daycare. He loved making these with me and he was so excited to bring them in on Friday!

I love my new silly ring from Pier One!

Happy Wednesday :)

A Valentine and A Thank You

We had an all day crop at the store on Saturday. I didn't get any scrapbooking done, but I did make a Valentine for my husband and a few thank you cards my sister asked me to make for her. For the Valentine I used my Unity December Store Kit, some Bazzill Swiss Dots and Making Memories ribbon, along with Prima flowers. Althought the color in my photo is very off, the red looks pretty orange here! Still haven't read the manual for my new camera!

Here is one of the three Thank You cards I made for my sister. This one is using Unity stamps again (I just LOVE them!) and some Basic Grey Indian Summer and Bazzill CS.

I also took this super cute class at One Little Spark on Friday night. It turned out adorable and can't wait to use it on a layout!

On another note, I got my new {ippity} Winter Release in the mail yesterday so I am hoping I will have some time to ink them up this week. I would really love to do a few layouts and incorporate some stamping into them, something I don't often do but always think I should!

Happy Tuesday :) Hope you all had a sweet Valentine's Day!

Unity Stamp Co. Friends with Flair Hop & a Holiday

Some of you know I started a new job a the beginning of January. I am working for a municipality so this is a local government job. This means I get A LOT of holidays off, NO I am not complaining. I am off today for Lincoln's birthday. This works out just fine for me since it is also my mom's birthday. She would have been 70 today and I can't believe it. She passed away at 67 and it's strange to imagine her at 70. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY, I miss you!" Her younger sister joined her in heaven on this day last year so it is a sad day for our family for a number of reasons. With that said, I am glad to be off from work at my "real job" and I will head over to the Scrapbook Cafe, my "fun job" and prepare for our all day crop tomorrow.
But before I do that, I want to share with you two cards I made using one of Unity's new Donna Downey sets, the Artist In You. I just LOVE this set, it can be used for any occasion, with or without the sentiments. The sentiment on the first card is from Unity's Hodge Podge of Happiness set, the second card uses a sentiment from the Artist in You.
Thanks for stopping by and joining me for my first Friends With Flair hop! Go back to the Unity blog to see who else is participating today!

And don't forget to check out the {ippity} blog for sneak peeks of the new Winter Release!!!!
Have a great weekend.

More Snow Is On It's Way!

After being buried by over 2 feet of snow this past weekend, they are now calling for another storm which will bring anywhere between 8-16 inches starting this afternoon. WOW! This is more snow than we have had in so many years. There's just nowhere to put it all!
I was hoping my new {ippity} Winter Release stamps would be delivered to me before being snowed in again so I could play and make samples. The new images are just TOO CUTE! You are going to love them! Sneak peeks will begin soon over at the Ippity Blog. Click here to purchase your own {ippity} Stamps!!! ----------->>>>>>>> do YOU ippity?!
I am so excited for all of the new CHA releases and can't wait to have them on hand in the shop! I'm trying to use all of the summer releases before new goodies come in! Here is a layout I did for the Layout of the Month in January using the Pink Paislee Cupid line. Although it's a Valentine's line, I thought it was perfect for my niece's birthday pictures!
