Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Destiny - Wall Art

 Hello Friends I had a crafty day today It always makes me happy to get my stamps out and make a mess. I find it very therapeutic :)  I saw these wooden frames at A.C Moore last week and thought they would make great frames for my stamping projects. They were only $1 super inexpensive and today I got to play around with one.  I painted it black with acrylic paint and left it to dry while I stamped something for the insert.   I got out the newly Nov 2013 KOM I bought.  I love this kit it is called Strength and Dignity you can find it here on the Unity website.

 Hello Friends I hope you all had a good week. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things after being gone almost a month.  Although I can't get over how cold it is here in New York. The wind chill goes right through you.  I hope it warms up a wee bit soon :) So on to my card for today's Friends with Flair over at Unity Blog . I went with another pink and grey theme today. I got to ink up the Nov 2013 Kit of the Month for this card. I just love this kit especially the sentiments and this butterfly stamp is just amazing.  If you know me you know I LOVE to emboss. It really is addicting. I was in Michaels craft store last weekend and picked up this crazy embossing powder. It is light pink in color with large and small parts of glitter through it and I just had to have it. I wanted to try it out with this butterfly stamp.  I started off with some white card and sponged distress ink in two different colours. I used the pink Victorian Velvet on the top a

Happy New Year Friends :) This is my first post of 2014. I Just got back from Scotland yesterday. I really enjoyed my trip home. It was such a nice break but I have missed my crafting :) Here is my card for this weeks friends with flair over at the Unity Blog .  I used the  Insightful Meadows stamp set and the Happy Birthday sentiment. I heat embossed a row of flowers with white embossing powder. Then stamped over it again just a little higher with just the VersaMark Ink to create some shadows. I added the sentiment and the ribbon to finish it off  :) Thanks for visiting have a great weekend :)
