Colouring fun with CandiBean stamps



I couldn't choose which picture I liked better!
Artsy or more 'real' lol
I'm here on this snowy Saturday to share what I have been up to on my crafting desk lately
I grabbed a CandiBean stamp last time I was at SGD- this one is 'Spread a smile of Joy'
I love that sweet little girl!
I coloured her and her snowy friend up with my copics to match the Bo Bunny Altitude paper
I can't get over those rich colours for Winter!
I kept the card simple to get it ready to be handed out soon for the Holiday Season. 

Hope you are doing well or almost done your holiday crafting!

Cheers, Andrea

Unity hop- Happy American Thanksgiving!



Happy American Thanksgiving to all my friends in the US!
Today's hop focuses on what we are grateful for
Other than my family my friends are my most important asset
Friends and wine- they go together like milk and cookies 

I played with the Unity stamp 'Enjoy' to help get my point across today
I then used some from Christmas paper so that I can use this card by itself or with a bottle of wine
Yummm.....

What is something you are grateful/thankful for?
Leave me a comment and let me know!
And while you are hopping...


We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Monday night on the Unity blog.

Happy Crafting!

Pocket Scrapbooking with Unity Stamps

It's the perfect day to craft and work on my Pocket Scrapbooking album
Got my mug of tea
Secret stash of chocolate in the bottom drawer
And the new Nora Roberts book on tape to listen too

I wish all Saturday's were like this

I wanted to scrap some personal photos this time
I was inspired by the name of the November SMAK kit-
So this page is me and of course I had to include the butterfly as they have special significance to me
plus look at it- this butterfly is stunning!

I included 2 pics today as it was a bit of a struggle to get lighting on this grey November day



I made my own 3x4 pocket cards with the beautiful sentiment and the birds. 
I had also made the butterfly card in 3x4 then realized it would be sideways
Hmmm....not my plan
New plan included me grabbing some acetate and floating the butterfly on a 4x6 card. 
And some sequins of course!
This lead to me making 2 more acetate cards in 3x4 as I just love this look!

This kit can be yours too!
November is still here

Have a wonderful day!

Prima card- Read, Drink and be Merry


Andrea blogging on a Saturday?
Shocking I know hee hee

I realized I have so many creations I have shared on other blogs but haven't shared on mine. 
Time to rectify that!!

This is a card that I made with the Prima collection Coffee Break
I love love love the muted colours and how kitschy it is

Hope you like it!
