Growing In Unity Day 1 -- Wish

Hello everyone!  I am the Growing in Unity Girl for this week for Unity Stamp Company.  This is such a fun week where I will post a project each day this week using my Unity Stamps.  If you leave comments, you will be entered be 1 of 2 people chosen for a grab bag of 25 Unity Stamps!

I've used this week to mostly use Unity Stamps that I haven't used yet.  I have a pretty good collection LOL! Today's stamp I think I did use once but I just love it so used it again. This card was made using Hang in There Lady

I love polka dots so found some red polka dot paper to use as my background.  I then stamped my lady bug and sentiment on the white layer and used an edge die from MFT on the side. This was easy to color and I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the wishing flower.  To finish it off, I grabbed some red heart enamel shapes to the card to match the hearts in the stamp by the ladybug.

I hope you keep checking back this whole week as I have more fun cards lined up to show you!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending You Sunshine

 Hello everyone!  I'm posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a quick card to share with you using Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine.  This is such a fun twist!

I found these cute lemonade images in Cricut Design Space.  The lemonade because of the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine.  I glued that around the border of the card layer and added a bow. 

I glued the images on the card base and added some clear Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle.  To finish it off, I added some enamel dots.

Just a quick and simple card! 

Have a great day!

Rainbow Card

MFT Products used:

Straight-Up Rainbow Die-namics

And I'm not sure why that just double spaced.  I really do not like new blogger.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Just Keep Swimming

Hello everyone! I'm posting on Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a fun treat to share with you using Cherry Lemonade Trendy TwineClear Small Pillow BoxesChoose Happy Stamp Set, and Metallic Red Medley Sequins.

I love Swedish Fish so when I saw a bag of mini ones, I knew they would be perfect to fit in my Clear Small Pillow Boxes and they would go very well with the Trendy Twine I was using this month.  I added the candy to the boxes and wrapped the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine around the box several times.

Next I found a fish to cut out on my Cricut and punched a small hole near the tail. I stamped the Just Keep Swimming sentiment from the Choose Happy set on the fish.  I mean this is a perfect sentiment these days and goes so well with the candy. I then added a few small Metallic Red Medley sequins to the fish and tied it on with a bow.

These treats would be perfect for a swim party, if we can have a small one soon, or to send to a friend for a pick me up!

Have a great day!
