Let it snow, let is snow, let it snow....

This is my all time favorite holiday song and I love snowmen so of course I had to make something with this cute Unity Itty Bitty One of  a Kind Winter! 

I happened to have a few stamps laying on my table that I hadn't put away yet and one was this big mitten stamp so I made it into a snow globe type Christmas tree ornament.  The heart flourish is from Unity's October 2012 Kit of the Month.
I am sharing it for Unity's Friends With Flair Friday where you can always go to find wonderful inspiration for your Unity stamps!

Unity, wine and chocolate

Happy Friday and FWF!!!  I have a cute little card to share with you today.  I don't go on Pinterest very often but I happened to be on a couple of days back when Angela was posting a lot of wine inspired pins which inspired me to make this card.  It just so happens that coincidentally there is a wine themed Unity stamp release this weekend!  How appropriate!
"A day without wine is like a day without chocolate...inconceivable!"  When I showed this card to my husband he said he'd heard that before...I was pretty sure I had made it up but I know it's a thought that probably goes through a lot of minds.  :)  We say inconceivable a lot in this house because we love The Princess Bride.  I think I should make a few more of these cards because I already have a few peeps I want to send it out to!

Unity stamps used:  Tell Me More itty bitty (speech bubble), March 2011 KOM (woman), Time for...Friends and Wine (wine bottle).

For the Record

Happy November!  October is probably my favorite month of the year so I'm a little sad to see it come to an end.  It sure was busy and mostly fun, fun, fun but I am actually looking forward to some slower and more relaxing days in November.
Hopefully all of you and your friends and family on the east coast made it through the storm safely.   We have family in NYC and Philly and were very relieved to hear from them afterwards.  Here in Michigan we had 50mph gusts of wind hitting our house and I can't even imagine how bad it was out on the coast.

Oh yeah, I do have cards to share today too!  Happy Friday and Friends with Flair!  I just love Unity Stamps and they have the most amazing background stamps.  Sadly mine don't get inked up as much as I'd like but I got to a few of them this week.  :)

On my first card I used NO patterned paper whatsoever!

For this one I used Poppy Chevron and Distressed Hearts.  The sentiment is from Love Survives Everything.  I masked it and stamped the distressed hearts over it.  The heart is popped up by 2 other folded hearts.  For the Record is from the Simple Pointers Itty Bitty.

For my next card  I used Unity's lovely Woodgrain Script background stamped in Worn Lipstick distress ink.  I was inspired by the design and colors of Corri Garza's Brave Girl card here and Karen Maldonado's acetate butterfly here.  The butterfly stamp is from Moment By Moment.  The sentiments are both from Unity's Empowered Words.  The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
