{be inspired} with Unity Thursday

Hi everyone!
Welcome to another Unity Thursday AND 



Check out this month's gorgeous colors and sketches.....delicious!


For my first card I created this week I used both the card sketch AND the color challenge.
I fell in love with this color scheme immediately and then when I paired with the sketch....it was so easy to come up with this card:



I used the April Sentiment Kit {Feel Better Soon} to create this fun little card:


For my second card I used the colors and inspiration photo to create this whimsy birthday card:




The sentiment is from the January 2014 Kit of the Month
{be your own kind of beautiful}


Well, now that you've checked my projects out its time to move along to the wonderful Stephanie Muzzulin....

What the fox say....

This set of days off I locked myself in my scrap studio....not that I don't LOVE to be in there, but so often I let life take over and I just walk by this room.
I don't choose to spend my time in there - instead I am running out the door for coffee or errands or window shopping...yes, all things I enjoy!
But nothing beats hours of creative fun in my studio - just me, my kitty and my music going!

So - with all that time - I got to play along with this weeks Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything Goes.
I love it when the theme is 'Anything Goes' because I can just dive into all those adorable images and get busy with wherever my mind goes....
And well, this week first I have to say I am sorry!! LOL!

Sorry that this silly song will probably get stuck in your head...




....but I really COULD NOT resist!
I HAD to make a card with this adorable fox!!

Then I turned to this apple with this amazing big grin!

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; October Afternoon Cherry Hill Collection - New Apron; October Afternoon Holiday Style Collection - Holly Jolly; Glossy Accents - Ranger; Heart Punch - EK Success/Stampin Up; Water Color Pencil Crayons - Derwent; Spellbinders - XPress It Cardstock; Memento Ink - Tuxedo; Copics; M-bossibilities - So Trendy; Elle's Studio The Sweet Life - 3 Inch Circles; October Afternoon 9 to 5 Collection - Button; Twine - Misc.
