Growing In Unity Day #3

Hello, friends:}

It's my week of Growing in Unity!! Be sure to stop by each day {April 17-23} and leave some love for your chance to win several prizes!! Become a follower for an extra entry!! Gotta love prizes!! 

Today I thought I would go simple...so I have a couple of projects that were really CAS! I normally do not do this style--I'm always wanting more on my creations...but I thought going simple would be fun!

My first creation was made for the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday--although, I was late. I didn't know I had to submit by Sunday! LOL! Oh well. As soon as I saw that frame...I knew I wanted to make an inspirational frame. I just stamped a simple sentiment {Ippity Faith Blooms} and will change this sentiment when I need another inspiration. I have to admit--it was killing me NOT to add a butterfly or gem or bow...but I thought it would be best if I kept it simple. Doesn't this frame look exactly like that mirror??? LOVE it! 
I am so not CAS--and I think I am going to add a butterfly (teal) to the side of "eyes"...I just love 3D images or extra embellies...I think this frame needs something...but then again, it's a CAS post...I'll keep you posted on what I do:)

I also made this fun CAS birthday card for a friend--her bday is Saturday! I wanted something simple, since I was running out of time before this card had to go in the mail. I knew I wanted to use my new Bo Bunny Ad Lib papers....and this was the perfect match! I am entering this into Unity's monthly challenge [birds]. I used my Unity speech bubble {Tell Me More}, a birdie {Spring Unity}, sentiments {To The Moon & Back, Small Things Matter Most}. LOVE this card! I hope my friend does--actually a CAS card is perfect for her, since she is a co-leader/founder of CAS-ual Fridays!! 
I also made this fun and MAJOR easy card. I used a ton of Crate Paper [Brooke Collection] embellies and stamped the Unity ledger behind in white ink. LOVE how this friendship card turned out. Now this card was different than CAS--it was simple because I didn't do much! Just stamped and added embellies:) So I guess that is just S--for simple! LOL!
That's it for me today. THANKS so much for stopping by and leaving some love! Your comments make me smile--and they enter you in this week's giveaways! I've got a couple of prize packages, as well as a Unity stamp set, to give away! If you haven't stopped by HERE or HERE --do so and leave some love for your chance to win!! 

Thanks again for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Thanks for all the inspiration.

Sav- you are too kind to send me info on the cookies! I A-DORE your frame! I like the idea of adding a teal butterfly, it would still be CAS ;)

Amazing that the frame is an exact copy of the trigger one! Where on earth did you find it? And YES, it needs a turquoise butterfly!

LOVE that card with the green bird!

I have been a big giant commenting slacker lately. Just don't have the time anymore it seems. But I love all your Unity posts! You are rocking your week lady! As you always do!

Gwen said...

All great projects, the frame is so perfect for the Moxie challenge. Don't you hate when you miss a deadline?!! :) I am with you, I would add a butterfly, too!
Love your CAS card, what a contrast with your last one, but each perfect in it's own way.

Squirlygirl said...

You have out done yourself once again :) I am in love with your CAS "simple" card, lol! I love the CP Brooke collection and have a ton of it to use! TFS :)

I just stopped by to say Hi and thanks for the comment and boy what a supprise. I love the frame, but even to my CAS mind, I think you should add the butterfly or a bow. It took me reading through more of you blog to figure out the Ippity and Unity thing. I will have to get me some stamps so I can participate in more challenges. Thanks for the insperation and I will be stopping by often.

jo said...

Fabulous cards Sav especially the bird....so cute!!

Angie Blom said...

WOW..WOW.. WOW.. you are amazing Mrs. Savannah O'Gwynn truly AMAZING!!

FibreJunky said...

Even if you added just one butterfly to the frame, I think it would still be CAS, because there wouldn't be an embellie overload. I *love* that second card! SO pretty (and pink!)
Everything you make is always fabulous!

mommyfink said...

Lovin your "simple" card! It fell together perfectly! TFS!

Denise said...

Great projects! I love the frame, and a butterfly would look great as a bit of an embellishment... simple, and would not detract from it.
