Happy Thursday! It's a Unity Stamp co. Blog Hop!

Thursdays are on of my favorite days,
on my blog, but also in life...
not sure why, but I really like Thursday.
Maybe it's the anticipation of the weekend,
one more day of school for the kids...
whatever it is, I like it :)

Today for the Unity Stamp Co. Blog Hop I am using 
this adorable new bird set.

oh, the spring, when you hear the birds chirping
 after a long and cold winter... love it.

I kept it simple with a little Pink Paislee newsprint for the background
and colored in with my copics.
I LOVE this image!
I stamped the inside with the
so happy you are all mine sentiment...
gonna give it to the hubs for Valentines Day
( think by then I may have about 10 cards for him tee hee)

Today over on the Unity Website
We are celebrating Angela's birthday

I know I'm gonna be shopping :)


Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for you chance to win free stamps!!

Oh the weather outside is frightful...

It's a good day for coloring!

Today in NW Minnesota it is a chilly -5
and the wind is blowing making is somewhere 
below too darn cold :)

School was even canceled here, which is saying
something, because one thing I've learned living
in this part of the country is that
Minnesotan's are tough...
me, not so much :)

I did spend some time coloring today
I was playing with Sally Mae
from Whimsy Stamps
dreaming of sitting on my lawn with the warm sun on my face...

here she is..
 

I also used this sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch!


Thanks for stopping by today!
I appreciate each one of you!!
and stay warm!

Season's Giving Blog hop!



So much going on today!
I am really excited to be
part of one of the biggest blog hops
ever :)

I hope you are having a great New Years Day!
Today I made a one of my favorite types of cards,
I love vintage style images and designs,
bingo cards, old post cards things like that.
I used one of my favorite Unity Stamps
a favorite Top Dog Dies die
(if you put the smaller one inside the larger, you get this frame look)
and my sentiment and butterfly come from the

A quick how to on how I usually work,
first I decide what I want to make,
for today's project I knew I wanted to use
the new KOM and make it into a bingo card.
so I stamped, cut and gathered my supplies
I inked the edges with Distress inks, to give a more vintage feel
all stamping and die cuts were on white cardstock

Then I played around with how I wanted it to look
adding things as I go

and my end project looks like this
Thanks for stopping by today,

unwrapped presents, ate too much candy

favorites!

The deer is from this set, he is inked and embossed several times
