More Unity!

Welll, the elusive scissors still havent came back, so just went and bought another pair, lol. They probably show up now,haha!

I got some more UNITY goodness today! These are some cards I have done for challenges and thought I'd post them here too. I waited to try to get better pictures of them than what I had posted on SCS, and these pics still arent very good. I dont know what is up with my camera, or if its the trees and shadows outside causing all the problems, but this is the best I could get today after about a billion tries, lol. Ok, on to the cards!

I think every morning is beautiful myself! Love hearing the birds sing and the sounds of everything waking up! I made this card combing 2 challenges, SHARON'S, stamp simply challenge (Make it Flat!) and LS191 challenge to have a leaf on your card and use the color pink. I also used a technique that JESSICA showed of brayering over your embossed glossy paper with different colored inks.


I made this for the FS90 challenge, SpeedyStamper! What was hard, was choosing which card to do! LOL! Wonderful gallery! This is the card I chose to CASE:

SpeedyStamper's card

And I did add a bit more and changed one of the colors and of course a few other things, lol. But what a fun layout this was!




I made this for IC151, loved doing these bright colors! And I was going for a Shabby Chic look, something I have never done, so dont know if I accomplished that or not, lol! Here is the bedding I was inspired by:
JCPENNY bedding

WElll, thats about it for now,lol! Again, I apologize for the crappy photos. (hopefully the cards werent TOO crappy themselves, lol!) Have a wonderful Tuesday!

You've been busy!! Great cards - love all the special touches you always add to your cards. You have such a good eye for design, Cat!

Sorry about the scissors... and yep, now that you bought new ones I'm sure the old ones will show up soon! That's just the way it goes!

Boy, have I been missing out! I love this card! Those color and the buttons and bows you chose for accents are wonderful! Love the lace too!

Shirley said...

Sorry about that. I am working my way forward so I don't miss anything. LOL I almost missed the 2 cards you posted before the last one. The card with the red is just so pretty. I really like how you used the MS punch and the brads and white pen really really make it pop. Your pink card is just as lovely with the pink and green embossed background and the great butterfly and clip! Beautiful.
