Unity's Friends with Flair 5.30.14

I used Unity's "With Sympathy" for the this card.  I love this set. It has such perfect sentiments for these sad occasions. 
(I rounded all the corners of this card with the 1/2" side of the Corner Chomper. It made the card more cohesive matching the rounded corners of the chevron die.)

I hope all your cards are "happy" ones!

Tribute to Gus Gus 5.22.14

My little Gus Gus 

lost his battle with a bad heart valve. With lots of love and great Vet care he lived longer than any expected. This card I made as a tribute to him and as a gift of thanks for the Vets that cared for him.

 Here is my favorite photo of him!

This is the card that I made......

The cute little dog stamp is "Tail Wagger" Unity for Bella Blvd. I thought it look so much like Gus Gus.

Thanks for looking!!!!

Garden Bench with Black Bird-

I gave this cutie to our physician. She made several calls during a weekend to check on my husband. He fainted at work (from pain of falling and hyper extending his knee) and we just wanted to make sure the symptoms were just that - fainting!  And he is fine but it was one of those things that shook him up enough to be more concerned about his health. 
He has seen our family doctor, a neurologist, a cardiologist (and everything is fine) and 
has appointments for the dentist!!!!  I am sorry that he had to be scared but nagging wasn't helping!  

This is for the Mountain Plains Crafters challenge and Unity Friends with Flair.

Unity's Friends with Flair 5.16.14 Mother's Day cards

Mother's Day is a reflective time for me as I am sure it is for all moms. I know it is a day to honor moms but without the kids.......well, you know. 

I am lucky to have had my four children and most of their spouses and my granddaughter with me for the day. They cooked and chatted and gave me a gift that brings tears to my eyes! They gave me a plane ticket to visit my sister who is struggling right now. They knew it was what I really wanted and needed.  So thoughtful. I am so happy that they are all friends (there were days when they were young that I would have bet they would never be close!) and live within an hour of each other. 

I made them Mother's Day cards! 
They made me a good mom. They weathered the challenges of growing up. And I am so proud of the adults that they have become.

I used Unity's Itty Bitty "You Make Me Happy" stamp. The words are lyrics from a song that was an anthem in our car when the children were little "You Are My Sunshine"

I hope your spring is sunny!!!

Unity's Friends with Flair May 9, 2014

This is a cute little box card that I made for a graduation! I love the little diploma and mortarboard!  I added a couple of banners and the word "Happy" from Unity's "You Did It" Itty Bitty. I used the graduates school colors for added touch of fun!

Unity Stamp Company's {be inspired} Challenge

This month Unity's {be inspired} challenge is:

 This is my card.

I used Donna Downey's "Donna Poppies" and Itty Bitty "You Did It" both from Unity.

I stamped the poppie twice. I added embossing powder on the outline of the top poppie and popped it up with foam tape!

There are 5 days left to enter! Here is the link to the challenge.

Fun springy colors!
