FWF....and a Card Patterns/Stamp Away with Me challenge

Hello, friends:} **NOTE:: be sure to read everything!! Surprise at the end!!


I don't know about you....but I'm thankful for FRIDAY! Not only is it the weekend (for me)....but it's Friday's with Flair at UNITY:} HOOOOOOOORAY! I've got lots to share with you...
 
First, I would like to start with my entry for two challenges. This card fits the Card Patterns and Stamp Away with Me (Inspire Me) challenges. I have never done these challenges before...but I really enjoyed putting this card together using their sketch and requirements (reuse something). I reused an old grocery bag! It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be! I also used my UNITY Pirate Madness stamps. LOVE IT! I think someone in the family might be getting this card soon!!

My second and third cards are submissions that I sent to Paige from the CARDS blog for her challenge this week. We were to use branches or trees. I love this challenge! AND...I love this first card sooooooooooooo much! I stitched the whole tree trunk with two brown colors. I also stitched the third ring around the "leaves". I love these family pics too!!  I've been meaning to make a family tree card/project for about three years!!! The baby is Xerxes Griffin O'Gwynn. **NOTE:: We don't have kids of our own! He is a Reborn baby (looks real- feels real). I use him for my craft fairs to show off my slings/etc. Xerxes gets lots of attention...and so does my business! He is the best baby ever--never cries, needs feeding, diaper changing, etc. Maybe one day I will have kids...but not for AWHILE! Anyway, back to the card...the sentiments are from Ippity's Straight from the Heart and Unity's Love Grows. Too cute!!

This card is my third card--made for the CARDS challenge. I used Unity's Spring Unity set for this baby card. I made it for my friend, Jen Harris. She is due on Feb. 24th! She is so sweet! So I had to make her baby girl a pretty card! Love this card soooo much too!

**NOTE:: Here is a pic of Xerxes. He kind of looks like Trav and I (red hair, pale skin). LOVE it....not the pic on the right...I love Xerxes and what he does for my business!
 
And just in case you haven't been to my blog...I've added four other cards that I created this week. You can click on them to see the original post!

The pirate card is so cute - love the flag's off the edge and the crumpled look.
I'm LOLing over Xerxes! I love the family tree - so textural and homey looking! The pic of your pup is so cute, as are you & DH! And the baby card is so sweet! Fab stitching and layout. Cah-ute! TFS!

Rona said...

Wow girlie you have been busy!! I love the look of the paper bag on your pirate card. The layout is fabulous! the stitching is such a unique idea - and so cute!! I love that you scrapped your "baby" - those carriers are very pretty - you are multi-talented! I am totally caseing your baby card!! Speaking of multi-talented my "guess" to your question is the blinkies for SPCC and Cupcake inspiration!! A BIG Congrats to you!! I just added a blinkie for top 5 at Clearly Inspired Challenges (first time I had played there) how fun is that!! Have a great weekend!

Jen said...

Savannah!!! I think you NEED a real baby...it looks like you are ready for one and those slings look like an awesome carrier too! *smile* I really love your recycled bag card...and oh my gosh, your family tree is fabulous!

Gwen said...

I love the stitching you did on your tree and I too, am totally going to case your baby card!
Two new things---the top 5 blinkies! Congrats!

Oh... BTW... I am already one of your followers but for the whats new, the top five blinkie is new, congrats on winning and I have never seen you slings before so that is new and you recently changed the font of your blog. Those are the things I have noticed recently. Have a great weekend :)
