OWH MWT – donut be sad

Hello!

Today’s Operation Write Home challenge is to make punny cards. Recently, Unity Stamp Co. made some punny stamps and I bought this one, which sadly sat un-inked until now. No more! It’s super cute, though I do wish it was a bit bigger!

I’m also linking this up with Unity’s Friends with Flair Friday link up! Be sure to head back to the unity blog and check out all of the cool projects. πŸ™‚

Thanks for visiting me today! I am still trying to clear out some stamps, won’t you take a look and see if there’s anything you need? (Look up at the top for the sale page, right under the photo header!) πŸ™‚ Make me an offer!

Best,

Unity’s FWF 2/7 – Me & my girls!

Hello! It’s Unity’s Friends with Flair Fridays, so I’m linking up a quick birthday card I made for my sister-in-law. Today is actually her birthday! πŸ™‚ I have the best sisters-in-law! Be sure to head back to the Unity blog to see all of the other neat projects!

First, here is the card I made. Love that the everything kits ALSO coordinate with some of my Spellbinders:

And my girls made their own Unity creations to share:

We had to make some thank you cards, and they used their own Unity stamps! Didn’t they do a great job? πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend, ladies!

OWH sketch 210

Hello and happy Cardbowl Sunday! πŸ™‚ (The Packers aren’t playing in the Superbowl, so I really have no interest in watching… but I can get behind a crafting party ANY day!)

And JUST FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW: see my stamps for sale page up there at the top? Free shipping (in the USA) if you buy $15 or more. There’s inks, paper, and tons of great stamps. Check it out!!!!

Here is my take on the current (#210) sketch, which is intended to be masculine in honor of Cardbowl:

Lizzie Anne Designs stamp, random paper from stash, SU circle punch, Sakura jelly roll pen, Tim Holtz inks

That turned out much better than I thought as I was creating it! At one point I wanted to toss it and start over. LOL πŸ™‚

And I have a ton… like a ton, a serious ton of that argyle paper, so I created about 35 of this sketch with different sentiments:

OWH MWT – cards for teens, giveaway

The challenge for Operation Write Home today is to make kid cards. I went for teen cards, as they can’t be as cutesy as kid cards but not as adult as well… adult cards. Doh! It’s been a long morning already and I’m trying to lose weight and I’m HUNGRY. LOL I just got back from daily Mass – it’s Catholic Schools week! The Bishop was here to celebrate Mass with our daughters’ entire Catholic school (4k-12). Β That was pretty awesome, but I’m still hungry… more carrots. More carrots.

Here, just let me show you what I made:

And here’s another, though the right card is more for an adult – just consider it a bonus card for today, k?:

Okay, what else can I tell you? You know about the sale page I added up there at the top – I added 6×6 pads and lots of inks, so check it out. Also, I’m giving away a gratitude journal – just go over here, check out the one I made for my family, and comment to win one for your very own!

Ohhh, and I just saw that Blitsy has TONS of Paper Smooches (and spellbinders, and some other great brands) available! If you are looking for discount supplies, go shop. πŸ™‚

OWH sketch 206

Hey ladies, I’m playing around with WordPress today. I’m not sure I want to import my blog from blogger just yet… Β thought I’d try a post or two and see how it goes! πŸ™‚

It’s Sunday and another sketch is ready at Operation Write Home. I had not planned to post a sketch card today, but the frigid temperatures are keeping us inside and messing with my head. A mom can only play Barbies so much, you know? πŸ™‚

I’ve been trying to use up this Jilibean Soup pad, so yes, the colors are more suited to fall. Β I’ll keep it around for a while before I send it to Sandy!
