Welcome to Day 3 of the  UNIKO STUDIO August 2018 New Release, where we're introducing another duo of delights: BIG & BOLD Hello and Framed Florals.

Because my stamps arrived pretty much 'last minute', I decided to keep intros short-and-sweet, saving up my card palooza for the release.  The little number I've created is one easily created at a moment's notice; the sentiments do allllll the work! LOVE this big hello that certainly deserves star-billing on the stage...

Head over to the Uniko site where you'll see an assortment of marvelous cards from my talented teammates and our lovely leader, Bev.

UNIKO STUDIO August 2018 NEW RELEASE Sneak Peeks


Hard to believe we're mid-way through August; where has the summer gone? For me, it's been a whirlwind of officiating bike races, traveling back-and-forth from home (near Calgary) to visit my mom, niece and nephew in Edmonton. In a nutshell: simply fabulous! Fortunately, still more races to come; still more opportunities to spend time with my family.  AND, still more days of glorious warm weather!

Speaking of 'fabulous things' - a warm welcome to the UNIKO STUDIO August 2018 NEW RELEASE Sneak Peeks where, yet again, Bev has designed an array of fabulous cards that you're guaranteed to LOVE!

Here they are...

This addition to the geometric Background Builders is full of possibilities, especially for those 'sometimes hard to design' guy cards...

Second: a new floral and sentiment set. Only one response: Yes, please!

A new member for the BIG & BOLD sentiments family...

Next, a floral framed set that combines a variety of images from the Flower Power sets. That frame cool!

To round out the peeks: the official release of the "So Much' sweet flowers set that was a freebie back in December. Soooo pretty!

Impressive, right? I'd love to hear which ones have piqued your interest!

Hope you'll come back tomorrow, when we'll start with the introductions!

Thank you for dropping by!

Sweet Birthday Wishes...Inkspirational Challenge #167~Photo Challenge


Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #1667~Photo Challenge, where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from this fantastic assortment of popsicles! Aren't they lovely? Which one would you choose to enjoy in real life? Me? One of each, please!

Please welcome our ever-so-talented Guest Designer, Chrissie, whose card is sure to spark a craving for ice cream (and perhaps a desire to invite the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel dies into your collection. She 'may' have influenced some of my recent shopping ventures....).

My card features a trio of yummy, double scoop ice cream cones from So Suzy Stamps. I must say, these were fun to colour with my Zig markers...

Please visit and enjoy my teammates' fabulous cards - SandieShaunaKylieMarinaNonni.  I imagine that a couple are guaranteed to spark a craving for a frosty, cool treat (with sprinkles, of course!).

Looking forward to seeing your creativity in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!
