Fireflies at the beach!

Well hello there Fireflies! I'm so excited about the August challenge.... it's "A day at the beach!"  (You can find more info about the challenge here.)  Being as I moved from California to Idaho about a decade ago, it's been a while since I've seen the beach.  (Insert sad face here.)  But with the challenge for Firefly Crafts, I can remember what it was like to be there! (smile) So, here's my project:
Items Used:

   

I ADORE the wooden embellishments from Firefly, they are so awesome and add just a touch of whimsey.  I used a ceramic plate and my Distress Ink minis and literally just rubbed them on the plate, then i spritzed it with water and laid the yardstick on it, squished it around a little and then pulled it up and set it to dry.  Once dry (well mostly dry, because I'm totally impatient like that) I stamped some words using a stamp from Kitchen Sink (also found in the Firefly Craft store, but out of stock at the moment) .  
I rarely do the mixed media type of cards, so this is WAY outside of my comfort zone.  I'll have to keep practicing! ha ha ha 
Happy crafting Fireflies!!!

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!
