TGF requested we all make a card with the "love" theme.  I know that Valentine's day is coming, and I know everyone loves the sappy pink and white and red cards... well I hate to poo on the happy parade here, but I HATE that stuff.  I mean, I ca only take so much of it.  Ok, it's that time of year and everyone is ready for spring and we are all twitterpated with the thought of the commercial Hallmark holiday creeping up on us, and I have to admit, I do like to do a little something special for my hubbs on that day.  BUT.... and this is big.... I try to do it WITHOUT pink and red and all of that crud.  So, Instead, I make something from the heart and try not to make it overly mushy for my rough and tumble sort of hubbs! hahahah

So, here's my take on the TGF request.  It's not all lovie dovie, but I think it's dang cute.  I love bright colors, and I have to admit that I have a new found addiction to bakers twine.  Who knew?!?!?  I use it all of the time!!!! And my gazillion spools of beloved ribbons are collecting dust now. But I care not, this stuff is so fun and I just love how it is unobtrusive but bright and it totally goes with EVERY card! Yeay for Bakers Twine!!! hahahah

Ok, it's been a looooooonnngggggg day and I'm off to bed.  I hope you all have a good Valentine's day, I'm sure I'll get around to making that stereotypical card soon,  I'm just holding off for as long as I can!  I cave every year.... it's inevitable.

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!
