A little Unity action

It's been a long time since I've done any crafting. My new job has taken my attention lately. I have been missing it though. It's like going back to an old friend who always makes you feel good. I needed some time at my table today.
The job is going well. I can honestly say that I love being at home the most and don't feel like I've really missed out on anything over the last 15 years of being there. Kit will be having surgery on his shoulder this coming Monday. From there we are looking at the min. of 6 months healing before things may go back to normal. I am very thankful that I was given a job to help us during this time. It's rough out there so I know I'm blessed.
Okay, now some stamping talk. I LOVE this month Kit from Unity. I saw the store one and like that one even more, but I'll have to love that from a distance for now. I colored in the thread with ink.The sentiment doesn't show up very well, but it is what it is. Sometimes I feel just like I'm hanging by a thread so I can relate. :o)

Ippity challenge creation

The challenge this week is to make a spring or Easter card/project. I wanted to make another pizza box set so I pulled out my Regal Greetings stamp set. I embossed the image on the box.

Here are the four cards that go in the box. 

Lastly this is what it lookes like in the box. The lid stays down nice and neatly.

Pizza box with 3 x 3 cards

I was invited to spend the day crafting with my favorite crafting buddy a few days ago. I was able to meet her sister and have fun gabbing and creating. I decided on doing a pizza box card set while I was there. I loved it so much that I came home and made another set right away.
I find that sometimes a small card is more fitting then a full size card, so I wanted some on hand.

Here are the four cards that fit neatly into the box. I used crate paper (streamer paper) to make the flowers. I found a ton of rolls at some thrift stores today so I took advantage of the cheap price and thought I would see how it worked.


I am really into spring colors right now so this set very much appealed to me.I embossed two of the four cards with SU polka dot folder. This was a blast to make and I think I'll be making some more this week.
Have a great weekend y'all.........
