Thanks a Bunch using Unity Stamps

 Well, I had a productive 2 hours of crafty time tonight.  Lance got all of the kids
ready and took them to visit his Mom for a few hours.  I had the whole house to myself.
I was able to play with my Unity Stamps and you know
how HAPPY that makes me.
So I grabbed some paper scraps, My Unity Stamps,
and some Kraft paper and got started.
I embossed a few of the panels using my tree folder and my argyle folder.  I added some bronze stickles to the bicycle and the center of the flower.  I added a sun charm, to add some charm...he he he, to the entire project.  I love how it synced with the rest of the elements.  The pink flower is by Recollections.  All ink was TH Vintage Photo and heat embossed with the same tone of embossing powder.  The blue panel was punched using my new (deeply discounted) EK success edge punch.
The purple butterfly was created by my BFF Teresa, who by the way, can now be found at her blog ***YIPPEE**** skybluepink creations!!!
She embossed the purple butterfly a while ago using the Unity stamps mentioned below and left a few of the finished cutie pies for me to use in the future.
Teresa created her first blog post on Thursday and a little birdie (he he he) told me that she is preparing her second post this evening.  Yay!!!  Can you tell I am excited.
Please stop by and show her some loving support.  She really is quite talented and
her creations are amazing!!!!

I used Kraft as my base and for my mounting cs.  I used the following stamp sets to 
ink up the Tree, Bicycle, Birds, circular sentiment tag, and Butterfly:

I am diligently creating cards to help out my sweet friend Chris.  She is hosting a is a Card Challenge  at her blog: Scrappin' with Chriss and Lou to raise funds for Relay for Life
she is very generously donating a fabulous prize to one lucky participant
Please consider joining in to contribute!
I also participated in the Cricut Creative Cutter Room DT Thursday Hop and Challenge ~ Let's Hop Strolling through the Park.  It was fun to play
the "scavenger hunt" while getting some awesome inspiration
from the fabulous ladies on the CCCR Design Team.  The Hop had some hidden
elements that you needed to find along the way in order to play
along in the challenge.  Go HOP now and find out how
you can play along!!!
and the Crafter's Cafe - Monday things with Wings challenge inspired me to use the the birds and butterfly on my card.  Spring is truly my favorite season to wait for because of the magical
things that happen in nature during this time. 
It never ceases to amaze
me how a joyful bud of a flower or a crisp clean breeze can
invigorate the senses and make you feel so happy inside.  I love to Welcome Spring
and with this card, I feel that I have accomplished that.   I will enter my project into the Twisted Thursday - Spring Colors challenge at the Outlawz,
DL Art - Thankful Thursday - Happy Spring (show some flowers), and
The fun spring elements of my card also fits into the 
I wanted to use Kraft on my card and play along with this week's Make It Monday - AG Challenge at The Kraft Journal
I was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #233

I am so happy to have you stopping by today
and I really
love all of your sweet
Until next time . . . .
