a special day....and FWF {Sept. 24} plus...triple day for CSN giveaway

Hello, friends!!


**$60 CSN giveaway instructions HERE! More chances to win today!!! All comments must be on THIS post. 


Today is soooooo special! It's my dear friend's birthday--HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE!!! Be sure to stop by her blog and leave her some LOVE--plus, she is doing GROWING IN UNITY this week--so all your comments will be entered in a drawing for FREE Unity stamps! LOVE it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE!


Today is also FWF--love love love FWF! It's my way of linking up with Unity and sharing all my creations. I want to say THANK YOU to all who were inspired and created a card for the FWF challenge last week--I was honored that this card {to the right} was the inspiration piece:} I have waited for this FOREVER! HOOOOORAY! I was actually going to play along--but I didn't know if that was legal:)


My first card was featured on the CARDS blog yesterday. Paige set up another awesome challenge- to create a card with a pocket. I love this gift card pocket that I made. I love the notches on the sides and the string to tie this pocket up. That is actually how it is staying together--I didn't use any glue. LOVE it! I used several of my Unity stamps {I like to combine sets! SO FUN!}--butterfly [Unity's Butterfly Garden], flowers [Unity's Everything Extraordinary] and the sentiment is from Ippity's Totally Happy set. LOVE it!


This next card was created for the Hip Hop sketch challenge last week. I LOOOOOOOOVE this card too! I love the sketch--and I made it my own. I rotated the sketch, and I used two Tim Holtz tickets and a sentiment [Ippity's Life is the Journey set] instead of three buttons. I also made the oval into a tag. I love that bike stamp [Unity's August 09 KOTM]. The papers I used were from the Recollections "I Wanna Ride" line. LOVE it! Then I thought that the tag was a bit bare--so I added that circular tab and stamped Unity's Amazing Me number 1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!
**NOTE:: This photo is much better than the one in SCS!! 

And my last card is super duper cute too--I just love anything with Unity and Ippity stamps! I made this card for the Limelight sketch challenge last week. Mandy, owner of Limelight, is expecting {3rd baby!!}--so I used that as my inspiration as well! I love this card--Limelight always has an extra element to their sketches; this week we were to use tags. So I made that square piece into a tag and went from there--the sentiment is from Unity's Our Life Our Stories. The sheep is a part of Unity's Love Ewe set. I don't know if you can see the background paper--in each of the little flowers there is a blue dot. I popped those with matching glitter. It looks so cute! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the Unity blog for a complete list of friends with flair! Love it--and be sure to look for the blinkie--you could win some FREE Unity!


Don't forget that All Things Unity is having a challenge supporting Breast Cancer Research. Head on over to the ATU blog for deets! This challenge ends Saturday, October 2!!


And just so you know--my CSN Store giveaway is still going on! You have until Saturday, Sept. 25 to leave your comments. Today is a special day---there are THREE more ways to enter today! So be sure to head HERE for that $60 giveaway! I just love free stuff! Love CSN!! 


Thanks for making it this far in my post! I know I have a lot to share with you--just love sharing my Unity creations and talking with you! I also love giving things away! I hope you will join in the fun!! Be blessed:}
