Thank God it's Friday!!
Not only because it is Unity's FWF Friday,
but because I am finally off call after a nine day stretch on!!
I have a couple cards to share with you today. The first one is one of the CAS DT cards I made for a recent challenge. It is challenge CAS58 from the 15th where we were to be inspired by the colors of chocloate mint chip ice cream (Miss Boo's favorite!)
Here is what I made...
I used Unity's set called Leap For Life which can only be purchased from a retailer. Keeping it clean and simple I stamped the cattails on the cream card base with Close to Cocoa SU ink. Added a strip of BG Origins paper that I border punched and then paper pieced the frog on the lily pad and set him on top. The sentiment was stamped with SU's Old Olive.
Here is a closeup of that cute little froggie...

And did you hear the fabulous news that Unity
is now being sold at Archivers's?
Isn't that amazing? I just wish I had one in my area! Sniff, sniff!! LOL!
I have two more cards to show you, but they are the same! Remember about a month ago that Taylor VanBruggen held a drive to collect Dragonfly sympathy cards for parents who have lossed babies during pregnancy or infancy? Well I made the girl cards and shared them HERE. But I had never finished the boy cards. So I finally did.
Using Unity's dragonfly from the Oct 09 Stamping Store Kit (only available at retailers)
and the sentiment from the Nov 08 KOM I created these two boy cards to send in...
The sketch I used is from SCS Sketch Challenge Master list. It is SC20.
I did take the liberty to add an additional layer of matting and also the vertical ribbon from Martha Stewart. But I think it totally still looks like the sketch!
Here is a closeup of the dragonfly. I just love this! I think my friend Kelli Caslow designed it too! I let my Copics go outside of the lines for this image because I was going for a soft staining of the paper almost like a watercoloring. I was simply trying to accent the images. I also added a fine line of stardust Gelly roll ink to the edges and body of the dragonfly to make it sparkle. You can see the shine from the angle above the best!!
So to start at the beginning of the hop and not miss one bit of inspiration,

Have a wonderful Friday and may your bucket overflow with lots of time to sit back and relax this weekend!!
