Some of my favorite cards

Good evening! I was looking through some of the cards I have made over the past year since I started blogging. I just looked back and my first post here was August 17th of last year. I hadn't even found out about little Amelia yet and she is now 4 months old. WOW! Back to the cards, there were quite a few I REALLY like and had a hard tme choosing which were my 3 favorites/best out of the bunch. I'd like to share them here again. My focus, shortly after I started blogging, was on Unity stamp and still is, but some of my favorites use Hero Arts and other stamps too. They are in no particular order and have various subjects. Enjoy!

Which is your favorite?

have yourself a merry little Christmas....

I had such great ideas after looking at the Get Sketchy sketch for those four little doodads on the card. When I actually sat down to make my card, I realized all of my great ideas used images that were too big to put in the space I had. Oh well. I do like what I ended up with, but not as much as all of the great designs in my head. I will have to do a canvas piece or wall hanging with some of THOSE ideas. I'll share them with you if they ever happen :) I'm back to school soon and will have even less time to scrap and make cards. Such is life. For this card I used Unity's Merry, Merry, Merry kit. Visit Unity's blog to see more great creations. Find the blinkie, leave a comment and win some stamps. Hope you are having a great day and that you have a great weekend!

You Rocked It Card ~ Unity Addict's Challenge

Have you ever had great ideas run through your head - lots of them, but have a hard time getting them accomplished? Or have a hard time getting the ideas from your head into a tangible item? I have so many ideas for the diaper fold card, now that I have seen it. I just wish I had enough time to get them all made :) This is the card I made for the Unity Addict's Challenge.

I love the "You Rocked It" sentiment from Unity's MARCH10 kit of the month {Rockin' it Unity Style}. I knew, when I thought about this, that I also had sme rockin' stamps from various kits of the month, a guitar (OCT09 {...wherever you go}), a jukebox (MARCH10 {Rockin' it Unity Style}), and a boombox (DEC09 Delightful Moments) Do kids nowadays even know what a boombox is? The stars are cut out from the You're a Star single from Unity.

FWF and EtsyInspiredChallenge #100

Oh my! This was a good week! My son and I went to a Wednesday morning movie at a local theater for $1 each. We saw How to Train Your Dragon and I loved loved loved it!!! It has replaced The Lion King as my favorite animated movie and The Lion King held that spot for many years! I had a great time talking to many great ladies at SCS in the Unity forum yesterday (JenMarie ~ I really want that frappe maker!!! :) ) and all I can say is What great ippity releases from Unity Stamp Co. You can see them here. I want them all!!!! I can think of so many things to do with them! I made 5 cards this week as well. Other great things that happened include a great curriculum meeting with my fabulous Spanish teacher colleague and lots & lots of baby giggles, smiles, and snuggles!

I took part in the ippity challenges and here is a link to my creations. This is one of those cards.

I also made this for Etsy Inspired Challenge #100. This is the first time I have participated in this challenge and had fun doing so! I used Cathy Walters' Etsy shop to inspire me. I chose two pendants to base my cards off of. This heart card was inspired by this pendant called sweet heart pendant.

You can find it here

My second card

was made from this pendant.
