But I really want to hit the 100 mark on Pinterest. Giveaway ends Feb.28, 2014. Random drawing on Mar.1, 2014 noon Central time. The prize? $10 gift certificate to the Unity Stamp Co. Now....here's the Pinterest link. Go repin and leave a comment here. Good luck!!
I made this card a few months ago and this has been the MOST re-pinned card on my Pinterest page. I think the simplicity of it strikes a chord with people. The background of the card was cuttlebug embossed and I stamped the bird image in dark green ink. Added a little twine and copper colored leaves for embellishment. I used a Martha Stewart punch to edge the top also. The scripture is actually a clear sticker that came from a grab bag I got at a crop. I think it turned out lovely, don't you?

I also added some sparkly Smooch Glitz in gold on the sentiment but you can't really see the shiny glimmer at this angle.And lets not forget the lace....I use a lot of lace on my projects. Can't ever have too much lace! ! Lastly, I added a sweet folksy flower from Jolees. Thanks again for looking and I'd love your comments. ♥

Well, I've got the day off from work and I'm in a crafty mood so I decided to make another card for the Unity monthly Be Inspired color challenge. I already have one entry but my new Unity sentiment kit arrived so I couldn't help myself. Yes, my arm was being twisted by Unity and Lisa Arana, the designer of this kit. Well, not really. Ha! So here are the colors for the challenge:

What do you do when the kids want french toast but you don't have french bread? You improvise. I toasted the bread for just a minute or so to dry it out enough so it wouldn't fall apart and would absorb the liquid appropriately. The finished product was delicious! And the oatmeal bread is better for you. Added bonus!
Here's what you need to make 2 servings:
2 slices oatmeal bread
1/3 cup whole milk or half and half
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp butter
*optional confectioners sugar to garnish
Cut bread into 3 sticks each and place in toaster until lightly dry but not browned, 1 minute or so. Next, in a large bowl, whisk eggs well. Add milk, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and mix well. Add bread sticks to mixture and gently turn (use your hands to prevent any breakage) allowing bread to absorb liquid.
Melt butter in large pan and add bread sticks. Cook on med/high heat each side for approximately 3 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and pour your favorite syrup. Enjoy!

Life has been so hectic lately that I find myself simplifying my cards somewhat. Which is not a bad thing, mind you.
I had to whip up a quick anniversary card for a sweet couple at church and went with heat embossing. I made the bow with my bow maker from the Unity Stamp Co. I am horrible at making bows but this makes it so easy. I love it!
Finally, I added some adhesive glitter ribbon from American Craft and we are done. Simple but lovely. ..... really, you could use this design for a variety of occasions. I hope you're inspired to get your craft on!
I'm fresh out of sympathy cards and have GOT to replenish my stash. I go through more than I care to admit because of needs that arise in my church family.
Simplicity is my theme of late and this is no exception. The sentiment was stamped in dark green ink and comes from the Unity Stamp Co. I used a mixture of light green washi tape and then added a 4x4 doily with a double looped twine bow and pearl gemstone.
Oh and the green striped tissue flower is from Fancy Pants designs. This came in a freebie pack in one of my orders from Unity Stamps. Have I ever mentioned they always give freebies with every order? Love them.
