This week the challenge for the Show and Tell Unity group on FB is to use an Angie Girl. There are many to choose from, but I only own the ones that have been included in the Kits of the Month. This girl is from the July 2015 KOM called Halo Dirty.
My card stock in ivory is from Gina K. Designs. I used layers of papers from an earth prints Mat Stack, which I have had for years. Coloring is done with Copic Markers. For embellishments I added tiny clear gems from Want 2 Scrap and a twine bow from AC.
I think I shall also take this card over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is an anything goes.
The Challenge #9 at MFP Stamps Challenge is to use the color brown. I believe this suites the challenge.
It is Friday and the weekend is starting off cold, but from what I hear we are in for a great warm up! Hope after this rainy, windy, yucky week, you have some fun plans. Thanks for the visit!

I just had to do another card for the Unity Show and Tell color challenge, this week. As you know from my post a couple days ago, they are featuring the colors red and kraft. You do have the option of including black and white
Here is what I came up with. My unity stamps are the pretty bird cage from June 2015 KOM, and my sentiment from the January 2012 KOM. I just love combining my Unity kits! The layers are kraft, black, and white. My oval was cut using an inside out stitched oval from MFT. I stamped my cage with Memento on kraft and used colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend. There was a heavy emphasis on the white pencil. I did some sponging around the oval with Unicorn white ink from Hero Arts. Twine, flower punches, and gems were added as embellishments.
Sympathy cards are not a favorite to create but they are sure good to have at the ready. Thanks for the visit, and I hope to see you again soon.

Not planning on leaving the house very much, this weekend. It is bone chilling cold. If you are in the grips of this mess, please be safe.

Sharing this at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge called Have A Heart.
Had a wee bit of snow this morning, but it looks like it has headed toward the shore now. Have a warm, wonderful day.

Wanting to make a card using some Unity Stamps, I reached into my bag of tricks and yanked out the November 2012 KOM. So many cute little phrases and images! My card base is a double sided card stock from the unknown. I added a scrap of designer paper from the Hey Kid collection by PinkPaislee. Then came in the Unity stamps which were used to enhance the background. I was even able to use up 2 epoxy stickers. The love sticker is from Soft Spoken, and the reaching hands are from Imaginations. The little bow was a salvage from a bought card. I just have to use this stuff up!
I will be taking this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #214. I think I brought my bits to the table, this week!
Also, the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Have A Heart.
Well, that made the room a quarter of an ounce lighter! Thanks for checking in, my blogging friends.
