Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hi Unity Friends! I am so happy you stopped by!

I was SO excited to find out that this month the GIU gals from February would get to play along one more time together with a Blog Hop - and I am the last stop - thanks for sticking around!



For my project, I knew I wanted to create a sweet little Mother's Day card, as it is just around the corner - and I have the perfect little Mama I need to send this to  :)

I inked up the image from the Spring Unity kit designed by the uber-talented Heather Rolin, and decided to pair it with a sentiment from the set Another Name For Love. ( I just love how the 1000's of Unity stamps can mix and match to create something 'just right'!) 
 You totally need them! Get them here!

If this is where you are beginning - be sure to stop at every blog along the way and leave some love to let us know you dropped in - you could be a lucky winner of some crafty goodness!


You likely found your way here via Brianna's blog - but if you want to go back and double-check everyone's awesomeness here is the blog list !

Welcome back!

This week over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog - we are celebrating TEA!


I adore tea (AND coffee!) so this was a sweet little card to make!
I used my SU! stamp set called "A Nice Cuppa" and the matching framelits - and found some pretty paper from Close To My Heart called Happy Times that was in my stash - just waiting for a project like this :)
Please be sure to join our challenge this week!
Thanks for stopping in!

Atlantic Hearts #208


This week Atlantic Hearts has another great sketch to play with!








Nothing says spring more than soft little "pussy willows". This amazing stamp from Power Poppy called 'Winter Pick-Me-Up' was perfect! I colored the image with my Zigs and found some paper from both Simple Stories and Echo Park that seemed to work perfectly! My oval CS was cut with the SU Stitched Oval die. A little bit of brown ribbon and linen thread finished it all off!   


Be sure to link up your project and play along with us - this sketch is great! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love, Peace n' Ink
