Some Unity cards and a tag

Finally I am participating again in the Friends with Flair I haven't played in a couple of weeks.  Truth be told I had the post all ready last week but we were camping for the week and I forgot to sign up! (if you want to see my layout it is here)  

The sketch this week from Get Sketchy:

I used my Lily Bee papers from my Paper Poppy kit, love this kit!  Of course the stamps are from Unity.  A simple card, but that seems to be the only thing I can do lately!  It is also for the Oh Alice Challenge to include a bird.

The Paper Crafts sketch challenge:

 The inspiration from City Crafter - which inspired me to make a card and then go out of my box to create a tag.

 And for my card I got to use my new Unity Store kit, love this!  This is also for The Shabby Tea Room challenge - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 die cuts (mine are circles) - as is the next project.


 Now I am not a tag maker but the City Crafter inspiration really gave me that push.  This also fits the Shabby Tea Challenge - die cuts (tag, butterfly, circle - which I then cut in half).  I again used my Unity stamps.  The butterfly is cut with my Slice Just Chillin Teen cartridge.  I have to say that this was my first time using my Hands Free mat and I love it!


Don't forget to start at the beginning of the Friends with Flair participants at the Unity blog, look for the hidden blinkie - you may win some free stamps!

The "simple" card is really cute!I love that bird! I can't tell..is that real stitching or faux?

The circle card is far from simple as is the tag! They are both so pretty and I'm so loving kraft..but I hoard all mine. :o
