Dude… happy birthday K, seriously, I love the July Simon Says Stamp card kit.  I’m loving all the great colors of card stock and patterned paper.  My FIRST card from this kit was all stamping and this one is mainly paper with a little stamping.  PLUS it is a dude card, cuz I really needed one.

So, my mojo is rebelling again. And it MUST be a teenager, because it sure is in an awful mood.  Ha.  The new Unity Stamp Company – Stamp of the Week was calling to me to create something with it, but goodness… it was a challenge for me.  Literally.  When my mojo needs a good swift kick in the patootie, I turn to challenges.  I have to thank Simon Says Stamp and CAS-ual Fridays for their inspiration when I am in dire need.  I don’t know what I would I do without my favorite challenges. What a delightful stamp this …

CAS-ual Fridays Playing with some Suzi Blu today!!!  I have to tell you that I have been a little scare of these adorable girls!!!  I don’t really stamp people.  I just realized that.  I think this may actually be the first time I’ve used a little girl on a card ever.  Weird, right?  But the new CAS-ual Fridays challenge really made me want to use my Suzi Blu girl. The challenge was a 4×9 inch sized card!  If you have ever seen a Suzi Blu girl, you know that the stamps are BIG!  Ha.  I’ve actually had this card in …

Sweet Treats A few challenges inspired this Unity card today! The CAS-ual Friday challenge is to create a sweet treat card.  That is all I needed to get inspired to use this month’s kit of the month from Unity… better together.  Plus, the Wee Memories challenge for this week is to create a clean and simple card.  Easy peasy for this CAS girl.  You still have time if you want to play along with these challenges too.  And for giggles, I am throwing this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge as anything goes for that one. I have a few …
