Butterflies & Bicycles

 These top two cards are some much loved Unity stamps, which is fairly obvious if you know Unity! I made these this summer when my little sister was here for a visit. The supplies I used here are OLD! My Mind's Eye Bohemia old. How do I still have this stuff around?
 The heart and the sentiment here are new to me 7 Gypsies. I bought them on sale, and there are just a bunch of fun little die cuts all in this colorway. Funny thing about that grosgrain ribbon: I got it in a ribbon share with Texas Jody Lynn about 10 or so years ago. Can it really have been that long ago?
 Playing with Gina K Designs stuff here. This butterfly is from Eclectic Summer. I used the Polished Stone technique to make the background. The technique is much more fun if you use Ranger's metallic fixatives instead of pigment ink. It dries much quicker and is much more metallic in finish.

This is a CASE of an STV card Gina did with the Enjoy the Sunshine kit. I do love playing with my STV kits!

Don't you love this sentiment? I think it's so sweet and versatile. This pretty bunch of flowers and sentiment are from GKD Enjoy the Sunshine. I use this bunch of flowers quite a bit. It looks good on any color card, and is fantastic to emboss.

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely Thanksgiving weekend! I am, but it would be perfect if our oldest was here. He'll be here at Christmas, though, so I have that to look forward to. I hope you are surrounded by your loved ones!
