Just A Little Tag-FWF

Not much to share today, I'm so behind for the holidays so I am trying to limit my crafting time! The more behind I get, the more I procrastinate! Imagine that! It's a vicious cycle ;) One of these years, I will NOT leave everything til the last minute, but, I guess it's just my nature! LOL!

H{ippity} Hop Noel Banner

I made a Noel banner this weekend, but unfortunately I cannot get a great picture of the whole thing since it was dark and dreary last night when I finished it. But here are the individual pieces.

The letters are Tim Holtz Grungeboard. I painted them with cream acrylic paint, stamped with Ippity's Music of my Heart Background stamp, then a little green paint on top, finished off with some lime green stickles.
The music note and red swirl paper is from My Mind's Eye and some pleated trim from Webster's Pages along with some green ball trim from my stash finish off the top.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Next stop on the hop is McCine or you can see the full list on the Ippity blog.

Just A Note

This was a mini card I made for Eryn's challenge IHHC50. I've shared it on SCS but not here on my blog yet. It was a crazy weekend in my house so I didn't have time to make anything new. Christmas party on Friday night, parade and spa party on Saturday, then my beautiful niece's christening on Sunday, all accompanied by a house full of company all weekend! Loved every minute of it!

Hope you had a great weekend too!

Next stop on the hop is Jen.

Just Because it's my last day....

of Growing In Unity.....I thought I'd share a card with you using the new Bella Blvd. set, Sunny Happy Skies!

When I look at this set, I really think more along the lines of bright fun colors, however, I thought I'd go for a different look with more natural muted tones. Okay, I have to admit, it was more about laziness, because these supplies were with me in my living room and everything else was 2 floors up in the disaster I sometimes call my craft room!

All in all, I like the end result.

Thank you for all of your kind comments this week, thank you for taking the time to stop by and don't forget it's not too late to comment for a chance to win a prize from Unity! I will be announcing the winner tomorrow sometime!

Your next stop on the hop today is Lynn at the All Things Unity blog.

Have a great weekend!

Day 3 ~ Growing In Unity

My card today is made with another Ippity new release and some fussy cutting. I am just having too much fun with these stamps! Make sure to leave a comment again today for your chance to win a prize from Unity at the end of the week! In addition to being the Growing In Unity gal this week, I am also the Unity Addict Challenge Guest, and I am challenging you to make a card using the "fussy cutting" technique. This originated as a quilting term, but is now also popular in papercrafting and basically means to cut out a design from paper to add dimension. So stop by the Unity Challenge forum on Splitcoast Stampers for another way to win a prize from Unity!
