Still some things to do, hang the pegboard, hang my shelves, hang some framed word art and some wood words on the wall, finish velcro-ing my cricut cartridges to the inside of my scrap box.. Put together another cabinet.. etc etc.. Also this is a messy pic sorry, I just don't have the energy to clean it up today..still in recovery mode.. :D

Good morning FABULOUS Bloggers how are we doing this Tuesday?
Day 2 in my week to showcase Unity Stamp Co. on my little ole' blog and a chance for you to win some wonderful Unity of your very own.  All you need to do is leave a comment each day on my GIU posts and at the end of the week I will draw one lucky winner to receive some Unity goodness just for stopping by!

I created this little goodie bag using the 1st Stamp of the Week set called Follow Your Heart

This is similar to the sour cream containers though it resembles more of a fruit snack pouch..
The paper for the container is actually from an old book I purchased just for crafting
The strip of pink paper is from 
The sentiment is distressed with Antique Linen
I used my fishers crimper to crimp the ends of the pouch after I filled it with some goodies.

Don't forget to stop back again tomorrow for Day #3 and every day until Friday!  Leave me some love on each of my GIU posts and you will have the chance to win some Unity goodness all for yourself.  I will pull a random winner this weekend.  Don't forget to check out all of Unity's great products on the Unity website , including {ippity} stamps which you can now purchase on the Unity Website through your chosen {ippity} chick.

Totally Terrific Thursday

It's Totally Terrific Thursday time again!
I hope that your week is going well :)
is probably my favorite Ippity Stamp set that I own...I love the versitility and the mountains of things that can be created with these sentiments and cute hand-drawn graphics.

I took a blank notecard from an assortment that I purchased at Wal Mart (inexpensive and they come with the sweetest polkadot lined envelopes) and layered it with papers from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the sentiment, trimmed and then corner-rounded the two edges.  I also used my Zig markers to ink in the little circles under HELLO...that's it. 
I believe that anything handmade makes a great gift...make up a batch of these little notecards using the different sentiments in the HOW YOU DOIN' set, tie them up in a ribbon and give as a teacher's gift or to your mom on Mother's Day :)
Hope you enjoy!

Wednesday Wowzer Time

Today I am sharing a card that our own {ippity} Heather has challenged us with.  You can find the challenge HERE.
Here is the sketch for the challenge.

Here is what I have created based on the sketch.

I have used 2 different sets on this card.  The sets are called,  Time for Friends and Your Friendship, My Cup of Tea.

I am also using my super yummy Embossing Powders from WOW Embossing Powders.

I loved the sketch.  I hope you like this card, I LOVE IT!  Polka Dots & Cherries, how can I go wrong with those, right?
Well that is it for me today!

This is using an itty, bitty, {ippity},(say that 3 times fast!!) called HAPPY.

You all know my love affair with Roy G. Biv and this phrase sang Roy G. Biv to me!

All those flowers are hand made by me using the fabulous die called Cuties 2. Th background flourish(my favorite) is called Fanciful Flourish. Both dies are by Cheery Lynn Designs.

This card I plan on entering into the NEW BEGINNINGS Challenge. You can read about that challenge here...wish me luck!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
  See you next week!
This has been Jeannie from THE POLKA CABANA with today's post!

Valentines Day Card

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

I will be out of commission for a few days as I am having surgery today. (this post was pre scheduled)

I love to see Black as the base of a card
I used my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cartridge
to print and cut the Hearts in layers. I then used patterns from the cartridge to
fill the hearts with different patterns. This cut comes with a rose but I omitted it.

I hung a TH Tag that says kiss
and the letter U from Pink Paislee Meringue
TH Vintage Photo distress ink around the hearts

I really do like the whole look of this card.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you get a chance to CREATE something wonderful with your Cricut, stamps, etc.

Happy Crafting!
