Unity Hop for 50K Friends!

There is a lot of excitement in Unity land today!! We are celebrating FIFTY THOUSAND Facebook friends! That's HUGE! I love the community over at the Unity facebook page, especially the Unity Show and Tell group. If you aren't already in that group, make sure you join it immediately! So much inspiration found over there :)

To celebrate 50k, Unity has released 5 brand new kits for $10. I'm using the new "Mice of You" kit, perfect for Valentine's Day...

Isn't he so so cute? This card gave me a lot of trouble. None of my layouts were working for me, but once I found that constellation paper (Dear Lizzy - Serendipity) it just pulled everything together! The mouse looks like he's dreaming in the sky, with hearts and stars all around!

I colored the image with Copic markers and die cut with a Spellbinders nestabilities die. The sentiment is cut into a banner and matted on top of some glitter washi tape. Those cool stars are from DCWV and they're actually tiny mirrors!

50,000 fans deserves a huge sale, right? These little banners speak for themselves. Happy Shopping!!

Make sure you leave comments along the hop for your chance to win this amazing prize pack! You have throughout the weekend to hop, comment, and shop the sale! Have fun and get inspired :)

Your next stop is the beautiful SHILO

Watercolor Snowmen + Winners!

Have you sent out your Christmas cards yet? Do you even plan to send any? I've spent the past 2 hours simply writing addresses on envelopes! Ahhh!!! It must get finished!

In the meantime, I get distracted by playing with pretty stamps and watercolors :) This time my holiday gift tag was inspired by Jill Foster's wonderful watercolor creations for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist!

I love these singing snowmen! I used a cute stamp from Unity Stamp Co called "A Caroling we Go" and watercolored with my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Aquarelle pencils and some Distress Markers. I used Archival Black Ink on watercolor paper so the stamped image doesn't smudge while I'm coloring.

Jill Foster's Tag

I finished the tag with some Glossy Accents on the lamp post and the hand bell. And of course I added a healthy serving of Stickles on the snow :)


I used Random Number Generator to select my two winners. picked my blog posts for Days 5 and 12... 

So my winner from DAY 5 is.... JENNIFER MITTEN! CONGRATS!

So my winner from DAY 12 is.... SHARTLE! CONGRATS!

Peace Tag

Popping in with a quick late night post to share a holiday gift tag and a reminder for prrriiizzzesss!!

I'm always a huge fan of Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags with a Feminine Twist! I've already made two inspired tags, and today I'm sharing one more (and another tomorrow!).

I immediately fell in love with the tag by Dawn Woleslagle. The black, white, and gold was heart stopping! 

Dawn's Tag
I cut out the heat embossing part and found a lovely striped paper from My Mind's Eye 'Marketstreet' collection, so I used that for the base of my tag. I did a coat of Wink of Stella over the gold stripes to make them shimmer. I die cut the snowflake and peace from DCWV Foil paper in gold and silver.

Ok now quick reminders! Make sure you check out THIS POST for a list of all of my 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration. Then leave comments to enter for a chance to win a BOX FULL of amazing prizes!! I'm picking winners tomorrow afternoon!
