Hello, and Happy Friday!

I know Friday is almost over, but I am excited because I got a little crafty time in this evening.  I finally has a chance to play with my Unity – Follow Your Heart – Stamp of the Week.  I really like this stamp.  Its an easy stamp to color.  I colored it with red powdered chalk and glue.  Then brushed some Stardust powdered chalk over the image, for a little shimmer.  My picture does not pick that up, but it has some nice texture and shimmer.  These powdered chalks are so versatile and economical.  If you are looking for a fun way to add color to your projects, check out all the fun chalk colors here.

Hello,

Can you tell from this card that green is my favorite color?  Well it is, and I like to pair with cream, brown, black, and so on.  Just a quick card tonight.  I finally opened my Unity – Blossom Stackers Stamp Set, and I am glad I did.  These are so much fun, and easy to use with the matching Spellbinders dies. 

I am sharing this card with:

Unity Stamps – Friends With Flair – Be sure to stop by the Unity Stamp Blog, and get your Unity fix on.

DL. Art – Thankful Thursday(Thank You Card with a Predominate Color) – I came across this blog this week, as I was blog surfing.  And I think that it is such a neat place.  Not because of the giveaways, but because after reading some of the posts, I really began to reflect on what I am thankful for.   Today, I am thankful for my family.  This morning when I woke up I had a text message from a family saying that they loved me, and they don’t say it enough.  I responded that I loved them also, and there is nothing like family.  We don’t know what will come, so make the most of today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
