Growing in Unity Week

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to share projects this week as the Growing in Unity girl over at Unity Stamps!  Monday through Friday of this week I will be posting daily projects here.  Leave a comment on my  blog posts featuring Unity Stamps for a chance to WIN 25 stamps from Unity! Leave a comment each day and that is 5 chances to win! 
So, this right here is what started my love affair with Unity Stamps- the Angie Girls.


This is Wakely Girl.  Those boots!  I love coloring people and these girls are just perfect for it- different hair styles, clothing, sentiments.
Wakely was colored with Copics.  I enjoy challenging myself with light sources in my coloring as you may be able to see on this card.  I also like trying creative Copic backgrounds and had fun with this ombre background in blues.
A scrap of dp and some linen thread finish off this card.
Don't forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN!

I am linking up to the challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More, 'Make Your Mark'.  

Thanks for stopping by and being a part of my story!

Time for a Challenge

Hi All!

Just a quick post this evening, sharing a super simple CAS card I made with the amazing inspiration from Time Out Challenges.


I also thought this would be a fun play on words over at Casology.  The cue card is 'WARM'.  Yes, my colors are warm but I also thought about us aging women who have a tendency to get quite warm with those pesky hot flashes. :)
I am also linking up to Fab n Funky Challenges- 'create a background' and Less is More- 'Geometric'.
Of course my bird is one of the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds.  The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Birthday Word Art; it is definitely one of my favorite birthday sentiments!

That's it for me!  Have a wonderful last week of May!

Mother's Day Butterflies

Hello Again! 

Back for a second post today- Yes, I was a busy crafter this weekend!
Can you believe that Mother's Day is right around the corner?  I whipped up a card for my Mom so I could get it in the mail. It takes a few days to get to Florida. 
I inked up my new April KOTM from Unity. 


I was drawn to the large butterfly in the set and decided to use distress inks for water coloring them. 
I did not want to take away from the butterflies, so I kept the layout simple, with a cs strip for the sentiment.  Doilies add a bit of girly-ness to the card. 
I used my MISTI to stamp my butterflies in the color of choice, and then once colored and dried, I stamped the image again in dark brown.  I love how this turned out.  The purples in the photo did not photograph well; the purple butterfly and the purple mat are much closer in color irl. 
I am playing along in a few challenges~

Paper Pieced Friends

Hello and Happy Sunday Everyone!

We are finally drying out here in St Louis after all the rain.  I was not personally affected by the flooding that occurred here, but we were off of school 3 days due to staff not being able to get to work with so many roads being shut down.  Now we have sunshine and perfect temps!
Add to that the bonus of getting my April Unity KOTM this weekend, and you have a pretty great weekend! 
I could not wait to ink up my new stamps-



I love Angie's Girls and this pair was calling my name.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and played along with Unity's paper piecing challenge this week.  There is something satisfying when using scraps of paper that seem to accumulate over night.  :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lee Ann :)
