Crazy 4 Challenges is seeing Shapes

Hexagons to be specific!

Today's challenge is to use Hexagons in some form on your card. I found some paper by My Mind's Eye I bought last year that did the trick! I trimmed around the design then added a bow, pearls and my sentiment. This sentiment is from Unity- 'Thoughts from the Heart'

I can't wait to see how the other Crazies incorporated hexagons into their projects. Head on over to the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to see!

Cheers, Andrea

Unity Thursday- Don't look back

Happy Unity Thursday!

For today's hop and release I chose this new Fashionista Charlotte and paired her up with the 'so take a chance' new sentiment. These Fashionista's from Tracey are soooo fun and quick to colour! I am giving this card to one of my 'Fashionista' friends who took a leap and moved to a different province to open her own Etsy business and experience Vancouver. So happy for her even though I miss her buckets!

Today's hop shares the new Fashionistas and also the new Free with purchase stamps!

So many new stamps, stamps on sale and free stamps over at Unity this weekend!! So hop on over to super cool Jen's blog!

Unity Thursday- I'm all Sentimental

Unity Thursday is here!

This week we are getting sentimental with the release of brand spanking new sentiment sets. 

I used one of the new quotes on my card above for a good friend of mine who is getting married in less than 2 weeks- eek! She is a card maker herself and keeps her cards very clean and simple so I did the same on mine for her. She is also a huge pinterest fan so I used this paper that gives a fun dreamy feel as I know she loves pins in that style for her wedding. If she is reading my post today...well don't look hahaha!!

It's also time for the new Unity challenge to start- where does the time go! I love the colour combo and picture inspiration- my fingers need to get inky again asap. 

Okay- time to hop along! Don’t forget to leave a comment on all the participating blogs.  Three random comments from various blogs (including this one) will be chosen to receive a $20 gift certificate to Unity stamps!!!

Next up is the Queen of Project life and Unity stamps in my books- Jen!

C4C is wishing you a happy Father's Day!

I'm a little late with today's post so please forgive me! Crazy 4 Challenges would like to see Father's Day themed cards! Don't wait till the last minute...or day get these cards made and our challenge this week will help you get ahead of the game. 

This card was actually for last week's challenge but I got so late at posting it (for shame!!) that I turned it into a Father's Day card as well. Two birds with one stone! I used an older stamp from Prima that I really like featuring a schooner. To me it is very much a male card image. Now this card is actually for my girls to give to their Papa. Even though they are skilled crafters I have a feeling he will know it comes from me hee hee! The sentiment is from Unity stamps and the set came with 3 Father's Day sayings. 

To see more manly creations hop on over to the C4C challenge blog and be inspired!

Cheers, Andrea
