Pure Heart

I got all 3 of my little ones to nap at the same time today, it's a rainy Friday miracle!  Of course I just had to make a card after perusing all of the wonderful Unity creations by you FWF ladies!

I pulled out my perfect pearls after years of non-use and had some fun with Unity's Be Your Own Beautiful SMAK kit.  The sentiment is from Wings Of Hope (on sale this weekend!).  I stamped the wings and the pure heart background with versamark ink and brushed on gold and pink perfect pearls for a beautiful shimmery background and then stamped the sentiment on top for a quick card.  It needed a little something so I added the wood arrow.
Have a happy weekend!


Friends with Flair, oh how I miss you!  And craft time, I miss you too.  Squeezing in a quick post today because it's been too long.
This card may seem strange, and it likely is, but it was for my FIL's 75th birthday and after so many years of making him cards I wanted something special but was simply out of ideas.  My hubby mentioned to our daughter that Poppy ate a banana EVERY day and I got the idea to mark his time in bananas.  Weird, yes, completely!
Stamps used are Unity's Celebrate The Good Times SMAK kit

I stamped the Celebrating and hand sketched the banner around it since I didn't have a banner stamp large enough.  I used the circle stamp in the kit for the background and used the number stamps to calculate bananas eaten.  I had some banana embellishments laying around from 3 years ago when I did my sons birth announcements and only used the monkey from the kit.
Celebrating 27,375
 and the inside reads: of bananas eaten in your lifetime!

Thankfully he thought it was funny and I was happy to see when we visited over the weekend that he had the card on display (his b-day was at the beginning of the month) and it was the only card he had on display too!

Happy weekend Unity friends!
