FWF and The Play Date Cafe ~ splashes of lime green...3 cards to share

I have three cards to share for the PDCC this week. I haven't played this challenge for awhile and I missed it!! I love it when they do a splash of .... I thin ka lot of people do! It is so much fun to do a black and white with a lil bit of ..... This week's color was lime green. I LOVE green!!!!

Here are my three cards. I'm not sure they will all be entered, since I only linked once, but I had a blast making them!! I posted on Facebook about 1 1/2 hours ago that I should go to bed...inservice starts for me tomorrow. So....did I go to bed?!?!!? Nope, I made these cards! Enjoy and have a great rest of the week!! :)

I am also linking these cards up for Unity's FWF. See more great projects here.

I am part of Maria Levine's Got {ippity} Design Team Blog Hop

and I'm so excited!!!

Thank you, Maria, for choosing me as your August Guest Designer!! I am honored! This month we used Vicki's inspiration photo pictured here.

I love the colors in these feathers!!! I made three cards based mainly on the colors in the feathers, but I also used the shaving cream method (have you tried this?? if not: I have linked a tutorial at the end of my post) to make some swirly paper and I think the designs turned out a bit feathery. (I like to use everyday photo paper when using this design method, but you can use any kind of cardstock, too.)

I used the itty bitty fabulous girl for this card. I also used Stitches of Buttons. You can get all of your {ippity} stamps by choosing Maria Levine as your chick at Unity. You can also visit her facebook page here.

For my second card I used the phrase My One & Only from the {ippity} kit Authentic Man and the i love you is from how YOU doin'.

I used how YOU doin' (happy birthday) along with FORE!!! for my third card.

Thanks for stopping in to see my creations. Have a GREAT weekend!

You want to visit Lisa next.

Here is the whole list in case you get lost along the way or if you are just jumping in now make sure you start with Maria and visit everyone! Maria will be giving a prize to one person who hops with us. Just leave a comment on each post along the way. :)

It seems like yesterday....

that I posted for FWF...that we were on our way to Washington D.C. and now 7 days have passed. The days and weeks just get faster and faster. Had a great time in D.C.!! Saw so many great things and ate at some really really yummy restaurants. Here is a birthday card I made for my nephew before I left. We missed his birthday party while we were gone, so I wanted to make him a special card. See more great projects or link your own at the Unity blog. You can find this stamp set (HOPPY BIRTHDAY by Phyllis Harris) and many many more at Unity Stamp Company.

FWF Friday! Here we go....

This will be a short post today. On my way to Washington D.C. tomorrow with my husband and son. So excited....but so much to do. We have some new neighbors and I sent this card along with a plate of cookies and a free pass to the Madison Children's Museum. I used the shaving cream method to make the paper swirly for the trees top and the first house. I also used Unity stamps, of course and some of my Washi stash. See other projects at the Unity blog or link up your own. Have a great weekend!!!
