You Are My Heart.....

Today is Thursday....UNITY DAY! :) I made another lo! I know....crazy huh? This picture is of Calvin. He is such A CALVIN. :)
I finally took him in to the doctor for an injury he sustained over Thanksgiving (it still hasn't healed) to find out that it might calcify and never go away. Ugh. SO I wanted to capture it you notice a 'joker-like' smile? The injury is on his cheek and makes it a bit botox-like.
Just a simple lo of my lil' man. I used this month's kit: Savor the Journey.

Be sure to hop on over to the Unity blog for a list of inspiration as well as a list of all specials.
Savor each moment today! :)

Livin' and Lovin' Life

Isn't the STORE kit a must have? Truth be told, there was a time when I actually WANTED to be a mycologist and study fungus. I am a bit odd, I know... but it is true. :)
So this kit {Livin' and Lovin' Life} was a MUST for me. :) I think I just might keep this card for myself. :)

Be sure to hop on over to the Unity blog!

Have a FAB day...from a FUNgal. :) HA!

{Unity} DAY!!

Yeah for Thursdays!! :) Here are SOME super quick cards for you. I used this month's amazing KIT- Savor the Journey. There are AMAZING incentives for joining the KOM so if you have been putting it off....get TO IT! :) Be sure to check out the Unity BLOG for more details on today's specials.

I scored the top portion of this one to make some embossed lines. The trim along the bottom is slightly cut into to make sure it doesn't cover the heart. :)

So white, right? :)

'Just a little bit SLOW'- that should be my motto. :) Until I get my sewing machine fixed (it has been MONTHS & MONTHS & MONTHS) or I get a new one, I am stuck with faux stitching. :(

Yep. This is purple. HA! Anything is possible on a Thursday. :)

Hope that you have an absolutely ZANY Thursday. :)

So here are a few QUICK cards for today. :) Not a lot to explain with them...just a bit of paper. The first card is stamped, slightly colored and then framed with a bling sticker.

Have a LOVELY Wednesday. :)
