December fairies and friends - Unity Thursday

Hello everyone! 

So glad to be here with you for another Unity Thursday...

Lots of fun things this week...

Can you believe we are up to 50, 000 Facebook friends!? 

And yup, some more great new releases...
I made this card with the new {plenty of pandas} kit. 
So cute, right?!

For my next project, I chose to play along with the December {be inspired} challenge!
Because, um.....look at this photo! 

 There are many ways to play along with this challenge (this photo/color inspo, card sketch, layout sketch) and of course, there's a chance to win a fabulous Unity prize!! So be sure to check it out and join us in the fun!

Here's how this photo inspired me.....

I used the November KOM to create this card....Isn't this fairy lovely?

Here's a few other cards I've created lately.
They were shared over at Unity but not here on my blog yet, so for some of you this may be a second viewing...


Well that's all the projects I have for you this it's time to get back to the hop!

We have another great prize for you this week:

All you have to do is leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.

Here's a list of all the pretty faces in today's blog hop:

Brown Thursday!! WAHOO!

Hi everyone!

Today is BROWN Thursday at Unity!
(way better than black Friday if you ask me - hehe)

With Thanksgiving approaching I hope you are all enjoying your fall, getting some family and friend time in, and feeling blessed and full of things to be grateful for!

We are having a bit of fun today with Unity!
New releases! Great deals!
Now that's something to be thankful for!

And the really great thing is that Unity is using this day as a chance to give back!
$1 from every sale today goes to RICE BOWLS!!

Check out this new release!!

{Birdie Conversation Kit}
created by Lisa Arana

I had sooo much fun creating this little collection of cards.
Collections like this come together so easily because you are basically making the same card over and over again. I just personalize each one by mixing up the paper combos and using some different embellishments.
This layered paper look was inspired by Marcy Penner's signature style...
(gotta give kudos where there are due)

And here are some close ups of each little chick:

My good friend is having a birthday this weekend. 
Her last name is Foxworthy.
I HAD to use this stamp. 
YUP! There was just no way around that one!
Love how this turned hopefully she does too.

Phyllis Harris makes the sweetest images....such a great artist...
For this card I pulled out my water color paints. Definately a technique I can use some more practice with, but I really do enjoy the process....

I also participated in the November {be inspired} challenge. Have you??
There are prizes, so if you haven't yet - you should definately check it out!

I drew my inspiration from the color challenge.
I wish sparkle and shine picked up better on camera.
Hopefully you get the idea (yes, that is silver vellum)?

Well, that's all I got for ya this week!!
Hope you enjoyed my creations :)
Now to continue along on the hop....

We have another great prize for you this week:

All you have to do is leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Monday on the Unity blog.

Here's a list of all the pretty faces in today's blog hop:

Brown Thursday at Unity also means some great things for YOU!!
Head over to Unity and check it out - all weekend!

Thanks so much for dropping by- 
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving next week!

Hey Dude - Paper Smooches DEC Guest DT Submission #5

Last but not least!
(At least for today - ran out of daylight and my pictures were really not cooperating....
may even have to do some retakes of the ones I posted?)

This alien.
So cute.

This little guy also came from this great boyish set:

Well, thanks for checking out ALL my submissions today.
The deadline is on Wednesday, so you may just see a couple more cards before then.
I can't help it!
I'm having too much fun!!

Happy day all!!

PS. After posting all of these cards individually and linking them up I DID figure out how I could have linked them all even if all the cards were in just one post....SO next time you will not be flooded individual posts...sorry about that (learning, as I go).

Chillax - Paper Smooches DEC Guest DT Submission #4

I had fun combining this little monster with the Slang Gang set.

He just seemed to fit perfectly with idea of needing to "chillax"...
I even gave him "crazy" eyes...hehe:

The cute little monster came from this awesome boyish set:

Thanks for checking in on submission #4!

Smitten Kitten - Paper Smooches DEC Guest DT Submission #3

I love Chubby Chums from Paper Smooches:

Seriously...can animals get any cuter!!??
And the best part...there are more sets just like these!!

I decided to color the kitty to look like my cat, Zuke.
I will eventually give this card to my guy...who also happens to adore my cat.
This pretty much makes this card perfect to give to him.
I really love how it turned out:

Thanks for checking out submission #3!
