Lots of Unity and a toot!

The sketch this week from Unscripted Sketches:

A color combo from Picture Perfect:
After seeing this incredible card by Savannah I was inspired to pull out my American Crafts papers.  It does deviate from the Color Combo by the introduction of the Bamboo but the colors are where I started!  I did paper piece the typewriter so this fits the Cards for Men Challenge and since it is for hubby it also fits the Double Dutch challenge - boys only.  The typewriter is on foam squares and it and the sentiment are from Unity.  The 'type' on the typewriter paper is from the CTMH set So Lucky.  I am so loving this twine from May Arts.



The sketch this week from Sweet Sunday:
For my card I was inspired by the 365 Card Challenge - What a wonderful world.  I dug out my CC Earth Love as I thought it suited the theme of the song as did this fun Unity stamp.  I paper pieced the globe.  



Now on a completely different note.  When I saw this sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You I thought of Santa's belt but just couldn't do it, not the right time of year.  Then I saw a purse.

Here is my purse.  I used my new Paisley Cricut Cartridge and of course the sentiment is Unity.  The paper is American Crafts.   This is also for the Pile it On challenge - white plus one color.


 The inside of the card.  I made a little pocket to hold some $$ or a gift card. 



Now be sure to visit all the Friends with Flair participants, find the hidden blinkie and you could win 25 stamps!  Start over at Angela's blog.

Now for the toot!  I just got 4 cards picked up for the August 2010 CARDS issue!  woo hoo!
