The 3 C's, and a new outlook

OK, so here's my new outlook....I'M NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL I GET A CARD IN THE TOP TRIO AT 365 CARDS!!!!!! I know, ambitious huh? But I swear I've made some cool cards that people said should have been in the top trio for 365 cards, but I just can't seem to get one there... so... I'm making it my mission!

Here's my first attempt. The card challenge from 365 today is to include the 3 C's, circle, cream color, and cross stitch. I got it!! The circles are the brads at the top of the black paper, the cream color is obviously the card stock, and (Yes Rose I did go old school here) the cross stitch is the sentiment. I know that I always complain about not being able to do some of the things that Pam challenges us to do (i.e. whip stitching!!!!) but I can cross stitch! I made this one especially for this challenge... just sat down, found a scrap and some threads, and voila! A cross stitch sentiment (bows) yes, yes, I know, thank you, thank you! hahahaha (pats self on back) I just wanted to go clean and simple here so that the recipient could enjoy the cross stitch and not a bunch of embellishments to get in the way. I hope you like it! Have a great day.... now it's off to register my little guy for preschool! Yeay!

  5. what a great job you did with the cross-stitching! Did you have a pattern for the heart? If not, you totally rock!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!

I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
