Leopard Print

Here are a few Mother's Day cards that I 
whipped up using Unity's Just You 
& Follow Your Own (kit of the month).

Notice the top left card
background pattern
 has a fancy scissor cut edge.
I like how that turned out!

The leopard print is a fun modern
look for those fabulous mothers,
just like mine.

I love to scroll through the
vintage items for sale at 

A few weeks ago I was
overcome with need to buy
a cute mystery metal frame.
It's heavy & possibly
an old outlet cover.
The strange thing is that is has
an open side, like you should 
slide a paper or label in it.

No matter.

I loved it.

It took me a while to find just the
 right stamp to fit in the spaces.

This is a very  special saying.
I love to see it on my wall 
as a reminder to never
 give up on my dreams!

The Unity brand stamp set is 

I finished this project off with
a few old screws from my late
father's garage bin of hardware.
Every chance I get to use 
up his screws reminds me of
his red pole shed & classic cars.

The wood was salvaged from
some old handmade boxes that
were falling apart.  I thought the
wood grain had character!

Get Old

As we get older and less sensitive,
clever birthday cards with often 
harsh jokes can entertain us!

I love this sweet image
with the silly saying to match

The background is from January 2014 
Kit of the Month.  I stamped is several
times at various angles.
