Unity Stamp Co and Their incredible friends with Flair

Hello and Happy Friday to all!! Thanks for stopping by today to see my creation. Once again, I used some beautiful images from the incredible Unity November Store Kit. This card gave me more practice with my Copic Club from Paper Maniac "homework".
So the image is colored with Copics and outlined with the beautiful sparkly atyou Spica Pitch black marker (doesn't show the sparkle too well here). All papers are from Close To My Heart's Discovery collection, the die cuts are from spellbinders and my new fav border punch is Martha Stewart.

Being that today is FINALLY the day for NEW MOON....10:30 am here, I wanted to share this picture of my daughter and her new Jacob poster (she liked Taylor before he was cast as Jacob) that she got for her birthday. I have a feeling all of us fans are going to be VERY HAPPY as we walk out of the movie....Have fun all you Twihards!!!

Here is mine.All of these yummy papers are from Jillibean soup's Grandmas Christmas Soup collection, the die cuts are from spellbinders and the border punch is Martha Stewart.

Prima Pick

Copic Buzz Challenge

Today I have a card I did for my very first challenge with Copic Buzz, actually my very first card using Copics. I recently found a copic club at the store Paper Maniac, I received my first copics 1 week ago today(there is a paper maniac blinkie to the right). Then I found Copic Buzz, a challenge site, while doing some searching about the markers and different techniques....of course, I love them. We are suppose to make a card using this sketch. The challenge is sponsored by The Pixie Cottage but I do not have any of their images, so I had to choose my own.
So here is mine. The 2 stamps are from Unity's November Store kit {Believe in Fairytales} and the papers are Imaginisce. Of course the markers are copics. The scallop "beads" are Quickutz, the labels are Spellbinders, and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Thanks for stopping by to see my creation!!! Jodi

Happy Unity Friends with Flair Friday




Hello to all of you friends with flair. Today I made two cards using the Unity November Store kit {Believe in fairytales} that I got from Paper Maniac (I have one of their blinkies to the right if you would like to check out their great store). I LOVE this kit and the reg Unity kit for this month, they are both amazing. Angela also has a great sale going on with 30% off and a new INCREDIBLE set from Donna Downey...check those out with the Unity blinkie to the right.

My first card uses some vintage looking papers from a digital kit called written and printed by Kim De Smet. My sparkling snowman card also uses papers from a digital kit..designing with digital rhonda winter kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by on your way through this inspirational blog hop, I can't wait to see what everyone else has created!! Have a great weekend!! Jodi

Friends With Flair by Unity




Hello, welcome and TGIF!!
Today is another wonderful Friday full of Unity eye candy from their friends with flair!! I want to take the time to say how much I LOVE checking out all of your creations on Fridays as they are always full of inspiration. Thank you to those of you that stop by to visit my little space here and it's so nice to read your comments!!

I made two cards this week with leftovers from a card kit I got from Create My Keepsake last year. Unfortunately they are no longer in business, I LOVED their kits. My first card uses the flower stamp from Unity's hodge podge of happiness set and my second card uses their serenity tree.

IF you haven't stopped by Unity yet you REALLY should to check out a GREAT sale Angela has this weekend!! You can click on any of my Unity blinkies to the right to get there. You should also check out their design team blogs from yesterday, their creations are always AMAZING!!!

This weekend we will be celebrating both my birthday (it was a biggie on wed) and my daughters 9th which is Tuesday. My mom is coming to visit and SHOP for an upcoming trip to New York City to visit my brother for Thanksgiving. Anyone who has been there OR lives close let me know if there is something we shouldn't miss. We already have reservations at American Girl for lunch one day, I may be just as or more excited for that than my daughter!!

THANKS for coming to visit me today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
