Growing in Unity Day 5 (Giveaways!)


Hi friends! I'm throwing a super quick blog post up since we were INVADED by bugs while we were on vacation and I need to get the kids out of here so it can be sprayed.

Leave comments! There's blog candy to be had!

For today's cards I'm using A Mother's Love.

For my first card, I decided to go with a kitschy/fun card. The papers here are Doodlebug Designs. I think it's fun to use this sentiment with "measure" in it and the kitchen utensil paper, it's punny.
Here's my second card and it's a shabby chic one. The patterned paper is Webster's Pages and then I just added a bunch of embellishments. I stamped the sentiment on a doily, eeek! I love that!

  9. Stamp on a doily *head slap* Never thought to do that. Spry them, use them as a stencil, glue them down... but never stamped on them.

    You are a brilliant girl.

    Sorry about the bugs. We were invaded by fruit flies this week so I feel your pain. Good luck with the spray.
