FWF: Even at One O'Clock in the Morning

So, I should be sleeping. I am absolutely exhausted and know that I will be up within the next couple of hours for Fiona's next feeding, then up with Liam and Fiona a few hours from the end of her feeding. Instead of sleeping I made!

The sketch is from Tuesday's stamp club project, which I need to photo and upload, too. Super cute! I also used one of the new SU In-Colors...Crushed Concord. Makes me want some Welch's Grape Juice! I colored the floral stamp with markers, spritzed it with water then stamped it on confetti cream cardstock. After I matted all of the layers I spritzed the entire card with iridescent gold glimmer most, which is impossible to see in this photo.Very subtle. Love the results! Happy hopping through Unity creations!

FWF: A Sleepy Momma's Thank You

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm beginning to feel better from my surgery and adjusting to having a new family member who eats, sleeps and poops as her current lifestyle. lol! I am truly blessed with wonderful family and friends who have been the support I have needed throughout the past couple of weeks. Their gifts of time and all things baby have been greatly appreciated by Mitch and myself. (Liam has also been blessed with some gifts as a new big brother.)

My flair for you today is my first batch of thank you notes using the July KOM, which I just received in the mail yesterday. I kept it simple. I also kept running out of ribbon as I made these cards, thus the three different looks. lol! (Waiting not so patiently for my Papertrey Ink order of light pink cardstock, buttons and ribbon to show up for Fiona's birth announcements.) Now to get these little buggers filled out and in the mail!

Stop back on Monday if you are looking for an inspiration challenge. Found something adorable that has some potential. ;)

For the beginning of the hop start here.

{ippity} Encouragement

This is for a dear friend of mine. I won't disclose what she is going through, but just that I find it so difficult to find the right words in certain situations. I simply hope that she knows that our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family in addition to whatever support she needs.

Tomorrow is the day unless I am at the hospital already. ;) Keep us in your prayers for the good health of both of us. Thank you for being a wonderful community! Good Bless!

FWF: See You on The Flip Side!

As I had mentioned previously, my c-section is scheduled for July 6, so I highly doubt I am going to be creating anything for a few weeks at least. Who knows? I could surprise myself. ;) I have scheduled this post (as well as my ippity post) way ahead of time in case I am not actually able to post it myself.

Still gaga over the Sahara Sand base lately. No idea why. Fresh, fun. I love how perfectly the sentiment layered over the flower images. Did they plan that at Unity? lol! Stamps from two completely different sets one from Ippity and one from the regular Unity KOM line.

Have a fabulous few weeks until I am able to check in with everyone again. Hopefully, it is sooner than later!!! Head to Unity for some great sales this weekend and the beginning of the hop HERE.
