FWF Friday!!

TGIF!!  Today I am sharing a card that I made for a wedding we are going to tomorrow.  The sentiment is from one of my Unity KOM.  I have a few of these transparencies in my stash and have been wanting to try one out on a card for awhile.  I also have quite a few of these 'journalling-type' cards and thought it would be fun to used one for my stamp base.
Make sure you head over to Unity's Blog and check out all the wonderful birthday celebrations happening.

Have a great weekend.

Crop Chocolate Challenge

It's Wednesday - hump day!!  The current challenge for Crop Chocolate was to make a homemade flower.  Below is the card I entered in the challenge.  The patterned paper and cardstock is EP A Boy's Life, with MME zipper ribbon, and journalling card, BoBunny brad, and stamps.  Not my normal colour scheme, but it is fun to think outside your comfort zone.

We originally started out making a different type of flower, but I wasn't thrilled with how it turned out. My son was having alot of fun helping me and making his own flower.

Hope the rest of the week flies by. We have a wedding on Saturday and the couple entered themselves for 'Four Weddings Canada' and we're supposed to be sitting with the 'guest brides' at the reception, so it should make for a fun and interesting evening.

Unity KOM Sketch Challenge

It's been a little while since I've posted, although I have had a chance to get crafty quite a bit lately.  Recently, a bunch of crafty girlfriends and I have been getting together on a monthly basis, where we pick the theme ahead of time, and each one makes and then demos a card, and then we all make it.  It's been alot of fun, not just learning new techniques and ideas, but also having some social time too.
I noticed the new Unity KOM challenge  was up, and when I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the banner from the March KOM, I paper pierced the banner using papers from EP's A Boys Life, and inked only the 'celebrate' part of the 'let's celebrate' sentiment.  I also used the 'Good Times' sentiment from the February KOM.  I finished off by adding Tim Holtz tiny attachers to ground the banner strings.
