Another super fun release!! Please hop with us!!

Hi Peeps!
Whoa!!  You ever have those days when it feels like a big pile on??  I am surviving that LOL  My cute daughter had her wisdom teeth extracted on Tuesday and her ride has not been fair!  The silver lining in even with a trashed lip, and swollen face she is still super beautiful and I can make her laugh!  :)
Speaking of silver linings, I had to line these clouds with my silver wink of stella.  I could not skip it.  I needed to see our silver lining :)
The way to go is much less shiny in real life as well as the lining on the clouds.  Now that I see this here on the blog I am seeing Way To Go!!  You let go of the balloon.  That is not what I saw when I made it. LOL  I thought the heart on the balloon was just cute and added to the clouds :)  The girls are cheering one another on!! 
 and Little Lads are darling right?  Tifany DeGough added the perfect sentiments too!  
 OK, Did you see this??  55% off??  GASP!  Oh how I adore a Unity sale!!
HUNDREDS of stamps $10. and under???  *SWOON*
Please be sure to do the entire hop and leave comments along the way!!
I hope the fabulous Kelli Picks YOU!  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
and if you need a laugh, look how Morgan's sweet friend visiting her fixed my stuck sprayer today so I could clean the kitchen.  *SNORT* 
I can call it Redneck, because we ARE rednecks :)

Hi Peeps!!!
I am sure you have seen the sale but I must start with that.
Order 3 not a typo, THREE stamp kits and you get 60% off your ENTIRE order???  This makes me gasp out loud and cover my mouth!  Right before I did the happy dance.  Bryan LOVES it when I save him so much money.  He totally appreciates the Unity sales LOL  :) 
I am very clever, here I am distracting you with my new baby fish.
I attempted blending colored pencils with odorless turpenoid.  I blended until I thought my hand might fall off!  I think I love water coloring too much to love this type of blending LOL Luckily Angie Blom does not get offended too easily.  Willow Girl still looks beautiful. :)
Please be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop today.
We will have two winner and you will get these awesome kits!!  I bought all 3 of these.  I love them and you will too!  Good Luck!  

 Here is a closer shot of the babies.  Do you have fish?  I think purring cats and swimming fish have fixed dang near every single thing that has ever broken me.  I love them.  I spend an insane amount of time watching them and a lot of the time while holding my purring cat.  Double the therapy.  :)
Guess what I did yesterday?  At 47 I got my first two tattoos!!
I have lost both of my parents and the fish and cats have not been able to ease that heartbreak.  The jury is still out if these have helped or not.  I cried about oh, 15 times yesterday admiring these.  :)  Only twice so far today :)
think pretty Darling!  I love you, Dad in my Dad's handwriting. 
Love, Mom in my Mom's handwriting.
I had stacks of books with the ippity butterfly picked out for my Mom and an awareness ribbon in purple for Alzheimer's for my Dad and I backed out of all of it.  Just their writing was enough for me.  And not just because of the pain.  I just love how perfect they are without anything else.
I LOVE them so much I wanted to hug the artist, his name is Matt Sager!
I did tell him this was my first one day stand, I was breaking up with him.  My foot hurt so bad I wanted to back out of my wrist.  He didn't even skip a beat he responded with Oh No you aren't!  You'll be back just like the rest of them!  LOL
My third and final tattoo will be my Girls thumb prints making a heart with their names in their handwriting.  In like 10 years when I have forgotten how damn bad my foot hurt!  LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you all have perfect days!
Take some time to tell your parents how much you love them, or pet a cat until they purr and watch some fish swim and remember how fantastic they were and how you hope you can be half as good as they were!

How are you today??
Thank you for hopping with us today!!
I hope you arrived from Natalie's Blog!  It is nearly embarrassing to follow her!  :)
I can hardly wait to get home so I can do the hop myself!!
$1.44 shipping!!  Don't you just love that?  Shopping in your pajamas and next to nothing shipping... My fave way to shop!! 
I have a BIG LOVE for Phyllis Harris.  I think I own every stamp she has made.  Well guess what??  I went to go visit my Sister for a few nights.  While she wasn't making me sweat like a pack mule with hundreds of biting bugs getting our steps in, she was teaching me how to water color!!  I did 2 card faces with her and they are not finished yet, because well I needed to color more I could not be slowed down for details LOLOLOL  So, below is my 3rd attempt!!  Don't gasp and run away!!  :)  Seriously, it's not so bad right??  :)  You get some water color pencils.  Carla the world's BEST Sister gave me her SU! set.  I think she said they are 10 years old!  They still work GREAT!  You scribble them on lightly, grab a cup of water and a paint brush and get to water coloring!!  It is total therapy!!  Do you have a Hobby Lobby?  Their water color pads are on sale this week!  I got 2!  One 90 lb for printing on like below and one 140 lb for heat embossing on.  I have not tried that yet but I will and I will let you know!  I got 10 paint brushes for like $5??  I know everything was under $15!! SCORE!!!  I also got mineral spirits or something for colored pencils on regular card stock!!
Back to Phyllis Harris and her stamps.  My love kicked up a notch to HUGE LOVE!! I used The Unknown Path.
I need a new Wink of Stella pen.  I gave it  little squeeze because no glitter was coming out to bling up the surfboard.  Good gravy a puddle about 2 inches long came pouring out.  Don't squeeze your Wink's my friends!!  So it is MUCH more shimmery then I had planned but I can't complain!  Bring on the shimmer!  I love that stuff!!

I need to be reminded to breathe when I see that water mark.  I really don't mean to brag, I am just so in love with this entire gig I can't stop talking about it.  Not going to lie.  I blurted out to Carla HEY!  I am on the Unity DT, FYI!  LOL She loves it as much as I do.  No one in the world knows my love for Unity better than she who started this GINORMOUS LOVE!   
How are YOU celebrating the 4th?  I am watching my God Daughter and her darling twin.  Then when her parents bring their big Sister home from Wicked we will have a BBQ and eat until we an eat no more! 
10 brand new stamps for $6.00.  Do you ever wonder if our best girl Angela has slipped and whacked her head when she has these killer sales? 200 stamps up to 70% off??  Really??  YIPPEE!!!!  Never question a good thing, just run with it.  That is how I lead my life :)
OK, please do the whole hop and leave a comment along the way!  This week there are two winners and take a look at this prize!!
That heart stamped bag makes me smile HUGE!  Aren't you dying to know which Unity Peep stamped that?  I think I would keep my new water color pencils and paint brushes in it!  Along with the blender pens :)
Good Luck!!
Today I am hopping with these super talented girls!!
I warned you last time you would want to run away and stamp.  Did you?  :)
Next please hop over to Shermaine's blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by and all of your awesome comments.  If you have a question please email me I feel bad when your profile is private and I can't answer you!
Have a safe and fantastic 4th!!

My First Blog Hop as a Unity DT Member *GASP* I am SO EXCITED!!!!

Hello Peeps!!
I might need to be pinched to see if this is really happening!!!
I know it is because I just applied my very first watermark in my whole life and I didn't even say a bad word!  It was easy!!  Maybe because of what it says *GASP* it just went right on the picture like it belonged there!! :) 
OK back to the hop, I am easily sidetracked!!
I hope you arrived here from Natalie's blog and have not missed anything from the start of the hop!  

I am a HUGE fan of anything recipe related!!  I make all of my recipes into scrapbook pages.  I really dislike to cook so if I can at least look at a fun page while cooking it makes it doable!!  LOL  I am going to a wedding on Saturday so this came just in time for a fun card.  I'll make a sappy one too.  
I picked Secret Ingredient an Itty Bitty, created by that rock star Joslyn Nielson!!  I LOVE it!!

 Look at the new stamps!  I love them all.  I already started a card with the grapes but quickly learned AGAIN, I can't color.  LOL  That owl is next.  I have a thing for owls.  I used to have thing for cows!  My entire kitchen was done in Holsteins.  I sort of miss it!  LOL  The cow will be right after the owl :)

3, 6, 10 and 12 dollars??  300 items marked down!!!
Sometimes don't you just shake your head and wonder if Unity survives on PB&J alone to keep up these killer prices?? :)

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!!  Good Luck!!

Unity prizes in the mail make a FANTASTIC day!!!

Today I am lucky enough to be hoping with these beautiful and talented girls!!

Get ready to be inspired because these girls and their amazing work will make you ditch the computer and run for your stamp desk!!
Next please head over to Robyn's blog to see her amazing work!
Thank you so much for stopping by!  Please be sure to go shop and save a ton on this weeks sale!!
Have a great day!!

After taking a year off from blogging, I have BIG news Peeps!!

Have you seen those commercials like Publishers Clearing Place I think they are called where people show up with giant checks and balloons?
The recipient covers their mouth and lets out a scream as they cry and they jump up and down?  Their hands shake a little and they say NO WAY!  ARE YOU SERIOUS?  Or maybe OMG?  You know what I mean right?  THAT is so what happened!  The beautiful Angela Magnuson's little face with her handsome son James popped up on my phone.  What is that called through FaceBook?  IM?  It has happened many times we have been friends for years.  I am crazy about that girl.  I have been in love with Unity Stamps for years and years.  They are my favorite.  Not a day goes by that I don't talk about them.  And Andrea?  OH MY GOSH I know for sure our paths were meant to cross.  She is my best girl.  SEE!  I could go on about the Unity Peeps for days.  Back to Ang's little face popping up on my phone.  BTW, do y'all have that on your phone?  You NEED it.  Seeing your favorite Peep's little faces pop up will put a smile on your face the second you look at your phone.  Ang said something like Hi, Wanna play along with the design team?  We think it would be so fun.  It was sort of hard to read.  I instantly started the crying and jumping thing.  You try to IM on your phone doing that.  Plus I was calling my sister.  I was texting Heather, Crystal and Andrea.  I was living my dream!  I think I was shouting OH MY GOSH while covering my mouth.  There was some pacing, there was some is my blog still broken?  Wait is my blog still even on the internet?  LOL  Can I even remember how to blog?
I am so honored.
I am so nervous.
I am so dang EXCITED!!
Someone once told me all I ever talk about on FB is Unity.  Well, there is a really damn good reason for that!  I. LOVE. THEM!  There is a lot to talk about!  The Peeps, the stamps, the friendships, the love.
Buckle up Peeps!
I can't stop talking on a normal day.  When I am this excited over something I am so passionate about, there is going to be some serious babbling going on!
Thank you for picking me Ang!  Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
That was such a stellar surprise!!
You, yours, and the stamps are simply put
I wish I could hug your neck right now!!  :)

Welcome to the First GIU Blog Hop!!

HI PEEPS!!!  I am so excited!  I love a good blog hop!  I am first on the hop, but you might want to see what Unity posted on their blog.  What I really love is anything having to do with Unity!  I have been the Growing in Unity girl several times and it is always so much fun!  I am honored to be asked to join this hop with these amazing GIU Girls!
Are you a member of SOTW??  Look at this darling stamp!
The benefits for being in one of Unity's club memberships are really the icing on the cake!  Do you know you get to purchase ANY of the past SOTW for only $4.00!!  Non club members only get to purchase them a whole year later after they are released and I don't think they are ever included in any sale!

Please excuse this rotten picture.  It took 3 hours to get it on this blog and finally my awesome sister got it on there for me, with about 20 minutes to spare.  Blogger and I rarely get along.  :)  The camera is really picking up the Wink of Stella shimmer and not the card.  In real life it is just beautiful not solid shine so you can't read the sentiment LOL  If I could get more than one picture on here I could show you a close up of the sequins on the boots.  I just cut them where they needed to be cut and they look so cute!  I have never cut a sequin before but I didn't like them hanging off and I didn't like them not on the flowers near the edge.  We cut everything else right?  LOL
OK, now it is time to hop on over to An'Jenic's Blog!  I can't wait to see what everyone else did!
The whole line up is below!
Before I go, this amazing sale ends at midnight!  Did you know the KOM and SMAK kits are on sale for 50% off?  OH EMM GEE that makes me so happy.  I LOVE them so much.  They are all my favorites!
Thank you so much for hopping with us today!
I am off to get my hair done!  I have a P!nk concert to go to!  YIPPEE!!!
