FWF ~ 4/18/14 #2

Here I am with another card. This one has such an important message!

I think I will hang this up somewhere I will see it each and every day! Hopefully it will help me remember to make each day as wonderful as I can!

FWF ~ 4/18/14

I have a Couple of cards to share tonight. I have been making a lot of sympathy cards lately. I shared a few last week, too. I never seem to have them when I need them and I unfortunately always seem to need them. Part of life, right. A friend and teacher who worked at the same high school as I do passed away yesterday after battling cancer for several years. I haven't seen her since right before her last surgery in mid December. She was a fabulous lady who had an infectious laugh and the most beautiful smile. She will be deeply missed! Two of my cards will be sent to her family. One from me and one from my parents. Here are my cards:

I may make this into a sympathy card, too.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Spring Break is winding down for me, but it has been a pretty good one filled with warmer weather, some sushi, a trip to the spa, and a trip to the zoo along with some great laughs with my family. Take care! See more Unity projects at the Unity blog!

FWF - 4/11

Hello, Everybody!! I am sooooo excited that Spring Break is finally here! It has been a long time coming!!! This week I made some sympathy cards to keep on hand. I always seem to need one when I don't have one. Hopefully I won't need these anytime soon. Have a great weekend!!!

The sentiment is from Unity's July 2011 Kit of the Month.

LOL. I'm not sure why this on is sideways. I'll have to try to fix it tomorrow :)

I used several kits on these cards including Bevy of Butterflieson the purple one, Blossom Stackerson the green and blue ones and the leaves from an ippity kit on the brown one.

Head to the Unity blog to see more great projects made by Unity customers who love Unity as much as I do.

It's Friday, Friday, Friday, FWF Day!

Hello from Wisconsin, everyone! What a beautiful day today was. A 48 degree, sun shining, snow melting day. It's starting to look and feel like Spring. Yay! I love Spring!! I have a quick card to show to you. It is a thank you card for my co workers. We have a fund at school called the Sunshine Fund. When someone is sick, has a death in the family, has a baby or gets married, they receive a gift from the staff of our high school. I recently had surgery and was given a gift certificate. Here is my card:

I used Dutch Mustard Soup and Bee Happy Hexagons. Both sets are on sale at Unity this weekend! Check the Unity blog to see great Friday creations by great ladies! Have a great weekend!!

FWF - Be Original! Be You!

Hi everyone! I was looking through Unity's sale items and notice this set: Comfy Cozy I knew I had it, and I knew I had never used it. I tried to make the chair a fun, original color/pattern and thought the sentiment from this kit went perfectly with it.

I love a little.....o.k....... A LOT of color in my living spaces. When I had recently moved into my new home and had just painted my living room a terra cotta color, a former neighbor came by to see our new place. When walking through, he asked if I was going to paint the living room. I replied.... I....just....did... His reply was that he wouldn't have painted it that color :) Oh well, I guess some colors aren't for everyone :)

I will link this up to Unity's {be inspired} challenge as well. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'm off to a day long World Language Conference tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be in the high thirties....yay!!! Enough below zero and single digits for me! Bring on Spring! :)

Check out all of the great Unity projects this week at the Unity blog!

Unity {inspiration} and pinspiration

A quick post tonight that will also be shared on Friday this week for FWF. Going back to school in the morning after a two day cold spell. It was too cold here in southern Wisconsin for us to have kids in school. Colder that I remember it being in a long, long time. What is cold? you ask....hmmm..... - 20 degrees real temp on Monday with -50 windchill and today was -13 with -30 windchill. That Is Cold. So with the time I had at home....I was able to crank out a couple of cards. Had been so busy over Christmas Break with celebrations and family, that I didn't have time to do much crafting. I thought about it quite a few times....but didn't get anything done. Christmas cards didn't get sent out this year, so I am sending out New Years cards instead. I looked through many examples and chose two I really liked from Pinterest. They are very similar and I based my card off of theirs. Here are the two that I found: Card 1 by Ardyth and Card 2 by Cindy

Here is my card:

This card is being uploaded to Unity's {be inspired} challenge for colors.

Have a great week/weekend and STAY WARM!
