Butterfly with Unity

 Hi everyone.. Happy Friday to you.. I just have a very quick card I wanted to post before I head out to work... I made this card for a Co-worker and wanted to give it to her today.. I have really Fallen head over heals in LOVE with UNITY stamps.. I am soo used to coloring my images that I am finding it a little hard to find my comfort zone when it comes to just Straight stamping images and going from there to make a card or and layout.
For my card today I used  a Gorgeous "quote" from the Quote Bundle Pack. I love butterfly's and I think that this quote is just perfect.
 I used basic white card stock, cream stock, and DP from my Recollection scrap pack that I picked up from Michael's last week.

 I stamped the image on White card stock with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and then cut it out with my Nest lable #9 (i think hehehe) and ran it through my cuttle Bug added some
Here is the Inside of the card. I used another stamp for the inside.. as I love this "Verse".. and think that went perfect with the quote on the Front... 

Happy Scrapping,

Hungry Game, a Winner and a Surprise

Hello everyone.. I have another Great Saturated Canary Image that I wanted to share with you as well as the Winner of "LaLa" digi.. Now I had mention that I have read ALL 3 of the Hunger Game book series, and this weekend had a Great time at the Movie watching the Hunger Game..  ( Did I mention that it was a Great Movie!!)..  I was soo over joyed when I saw that Krista from S.C had drawn an image "GameTime".. She looks just like "Katniss Everdeen.
 She was a part of the New release along with all of the other images that was "showcased" in the Blog Hop.. and I have to say THANK YOU.. to ALL of you that stopped by and left me such wonderful comments.. They are ALL appreciated..

Fro my card I wanted to set a Little Scene.. So I started with some DP from My Mined's Eye "All Spice". this is a Gorgeous 6x6 paper pack..I also used some Kraft card stock, some scrap paper (for my grass) the little fence is "paper doily" from Basic Gray "life of the Party".. Embellishments (apple tree and little honey bee) is from Jolee's Boutique " the Forrest is a part of Katniss and where a lot of her "good memory's are..It's also the place where she can Hunt for food to trade in the village and to feed her family...
I colored her up with my Prisma and OMS.. I wanted to "fussy cut" her a little more, as I am not CRAZY about ALL the white background, But she had soo many little details..I was not going to try too much "fussy cute with her (Plus I Know that I am NOT that good at it. hehehe.. Used some pop dots to make her pop off the card.. You can see she is ready to make her move across the Fence and in the the green grass.

Here is a close up of her.. 

Know for the inside of my card.. The sentiment is the same as what is stamped on the Front.. but it was not as clear and crisp as I wanted soo I stamped it again on the inside.. Stamp and Sentiment is from my "Stamp of the Week by Unity Stamp Co... I just Love getting a new stamp every week for under $6.00. And when I saw this week's stamp with this Gorgeous little Bird and Sentiment I thought it would be Perfect!!!!!!. ( in the realm of the "mocking Jay"

Any Thing Goes with Monday Fun day #26

Hi Everyone.. I am soo excited about today's Monday Fun day challenge with the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog. I am also a lot sat, as today is the begining of my Last week as a DT member for the Farm Fresh Challenge team.. But I will leave those tears for later.. Because I thing we have Truly saved the Best for last with our challenges... as today's challenge is some of my ALL time favorite.
I have been saving my project just for this day. I have quite a lot to show so lets get stated:
 My youngest brother and his wife welcomed our Newest member of the family 2 weeks ago. So of course we had to have a Shower to welcome our new "Baby Boy", and so back in November/December I told her that my gift would be to help out with the Baby Shower  and to make the Shower Invitation's and some of the decorations. ( I knew it was putting a Lot on me, But I was More than up to the challenge.. :0)..
Once I saw the "Build a Onesie -Boy "clear stamp from The Greeting Farm, I knew that it would be just Perfect. Know usually I do love to color, But because this was a Big order.. I decided that I would "paper piece" the stamp. If you follow my Blog you might remember I had made my SIL a Baby card with a different image a couple months ago with some Beautiful Scrap booking pack from "Yellow Bicycle" and DCWV.. So I used the entire paper pack to coordinate everything together.
I used almost all of the images from the Stamp Set. I also paper pieced and cut out the different little characters on the front of the onesie too.  I cut out blue card stock with my scallop Nesti. The Green Card stock was "embossed" with Suzzix embossing folder. I added some Ribbon and buttons and some cute little embellishments  from Jolies' Boutique. And stamped "Its a Boy" with my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
 Here is a Shot of the first Batch I had finished.. I did a total of 20.
 Found These cute little treat bags from Michael's they were around $3.50 per bag(16 each) I bought 2 with 2 40% coupon. So I saved their.. and I stamped the Onesie and Sentiment directly on to the bag as Is.. Custom Made Treat Bags. Everyone just Loved them..
 Of course we had to have something to put in to the Bags.

 Some more of my Decoration and party favors.
I made my Own Prom Prom. I remember making them when I was a Kid.. I will be making them for my Party's from Now On..
WOW!! Thank you for making it ALL the way to the End.. I just had soo much Fun making this and to have soo many tell me that they Loved "Every Thing about the Decoration and Theme of the Baby Shower.. My Brother and His wife where beyond Happy, and it was Wonderful just having  our  having the Family together.
Could Not leave you with out a Pic of the Happy Couple.. 

Now Please Head over to the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog for all the Details..for this week's challenge.. 

Happy Crafting,

Scraps of Color and Cards

Good Morning Everyone..I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. We are looking at a cold and rainy So. California day today. It's early and I am at work right Now, But that does not mean that I can't get a little "posting done". hehehe shhhhh!!!.. A few weeks ago they was a DT call for Scraps Of Color..and I have been such a Huge Fan and follower of the this  site that I thought that I would love to be apart of this team of Gorgeous and talented Ladies. You can only imagine how  beyond HAPPY I was when  I got the email saying that I had been chosen as one of the Newest DT member.
Today is my first post as a member of the DT. I have 2 cards that I shared on the SOC blog. 
I have two cards showing some of my Gorgeous Stamp from Unity Stamp Co..The fist one is an Image from their "Stamp of the Week" which I belong too..Every week I get a Gorgeous New stamp image from Unity, and I can tell you each week I am just Blown away with yet another Beautiful Image from Angela Magnuson and her talented team over at Unity.. This one is "You got heat".. You get the image and Sentiment. And trust me when I say that the price is unbelievable. Look at this sweet Bunny's Face..I just think he is the cutest little thing.. I stamped him on White card stock with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with my Prisma and OMS..  My gorgeous DP is from My Mind Eye.. Added some Ribbon and to finish off added some Pearls and my White gel Pen for a little outside boarder.
Here is a close up of my Bunny.. He is looking for some one to hold him and Love on him. Once I colored him I cut him out with my Circle Nesti and cuttle bug.
Here is the Inside of my card.. Again just using some of my  scraps from the same DP. and then stamped the sentiment again.
Here is my second card.. I made this card for a co-worker who just found out that she is expecting her 3rd child. I just LOVE this image. I know that when I was expecting all 4 of my kids, One of the most exciting part was waiting to get our First "Ultra Sound".. so when I saw this Image I thought; how perfect..especially with the little hearts.. I made this card a CAS. I stared with my Kraft card stock and stamped my image directly on the card stock.. I then stamped it again on a separate card stock and then cut it out and popped it up with some pop dots. Again the sentiment came along with the image. I stamped that on some cram card stock in red ink to play against the red heart, ( colored those with my Sakura red gel pen). and to finish off I added some twine, a button and some faux stitching around the base with my white gel pen.
Here is a close up of my image which I popped up with my pop dots.

Happy Scrapping,

Hopping with Saturated Canary

Hi everyone Happy Thursday and Welcome to the Saturated Canary Blog Hop.. As you may  have seen her in some of the "Sneak Peek"... I got LALA is my image.
I Asked Krista for an Afro-image.. and she did NOT disappoint with my Sweet Lala..  Is she just NOT gorgeous.. I just love her Afro.. I was a little too young for when it was the Hot Hair style of the day.. But soo many woman of color are going back to their Natural Hair.. I think she is just Fabulous.
 I used some more Paper from "My Mind Eye"...Vanity Fair.. I thought that the paper looked very Retro and so went well with her Retro 70's look. ( please forgive my Image.. Photo Bucket has  a New PHOTO Edit  and I don't like it at ALL..
 Here is the Inside of my Card..
 Say Hello "Flat Lala"... I had originally planed on making two different card showing Lala with 2 different skin shade and Hair color. This is Lala with a little darker hair. I paper pieced her but was not happy with the outcome.. Just a few cutting mistakes on my part.. But I though she was still Gorgeous and wanted to keep her.. So I have named her Flat Lala.. and she will stay with my on my desk.. so that She can keep me inspired to create with more Saturated Canary..
And Here is a close up side by side view of both of the.. I just Love Lala and was  HAPPY to know that she came from my idea (well Krista said she had been dying to make an Afro S.C. so it worked out Great..

OK... Now who wants a Chance to WIN Lala.......>>>>>>if you do our any of the other  Gorgeous Images being release today..
