Hello friends! It’s FRIDAY! 🙂 This is my last day as Growing in Unity girl… I am sad to see the week come to an end! I have loved seeing new visitors to my blog and all of your sweet comments. 🙂
It’s Friday and that means Friends with Flair over at the Unity blog... but before I get to project pics, yesterday we got about 10″ of snow. Seriously. And LOTS of wind. So no school… hmmm, what to do?
|Salt dough ornaments! And a salt dough snowman with hat and scarf. 🙂
You should’ve seen our hands after from all of the dye. GROSS.
|What’s a snow day without playing outside in the snow?
They looked like roly poly snowgirls. 🙂
Movies, crafting, coloring, a little bit of crafting time for me… it was a nice day with my girls. 🙂
So. Yesterday I had this smallish scrap of pretty, pretty Authentique paper and could not bear to toss it, so I made it into this:
|Authentique dp, Gina K kraft and PTI ripe avacado cardstock
Unity KOM sentiment
random ribbon from stash, scoring tool
I scored the bottom of the card around the sentiment and used up that scrap of ribbon creating a ruffled banner. I adhered it with my very own glue dots; if you want to see how to make glue dots or how I store my glue dots you can see this post (it’s cool. You should look.)
This card I am less impressed with, but my DH really liked it. He said it was more masculine. With a bow??? I am not sure.

Because this post isn’t long enough, I have a couple of gift bags my oldest helped me make. This one is for her teacher. We spritzed it with shimmer paint mixed with hairspray and she got a huge glob right in the middle. OOPS. I’m quite sure her teacher is used to first-grader crafting creations.

And this one I made for one of our nieces and did marginally better on the spritzing. LOL By the way, this Snowflake Kisses set is becoming one of my go-to’s for winter cards. I LOVE it.
