**Ya Gotta Love a Handmade Card~ Flying Unicorn**

 Hey all! Hope your week has been awesome! Don't ya just love, the special feeling ya get, when you receive a handmade card! I love, just like everyone else to receive them. To give them, however, my card skills.. Well lets just say they are very novice and I am learning. I was so happy to see the "Queen" of cards (aka..Alda) post some BACs in the forums. One in the Round Robin and the other in WCYDW threads. Oh yeah baby I homed in on those beauties real close! Made 2 for this weeks post to share. My much needed skills are starting to take a turn for the better! Well I think so anyways. LOL

 This first card I made for a special friend. She is a very kind and sweet person who is going through some hard times. Sometimes we just need to know that someone out there just simply cares and sees our situation and cares. Kinda a hug in paper form!

 The paper in November KOM was perfect match to the Teresa Collins blue paper in the BG, perfect and soft for this card!! I am so addicted to the beautiful Manor House Ornate frames!! Oh My Goodness Yum!! The flowers are the New Yummy Petaloo (blue and Cream small flowers), Flying Unicorn mini roses and large pink flowers, Base flower is Prima. The lace is the insane Flying Unicorn Venise Lace. Ok let me tell ya folks, this lace is seriously gorgeous!! No jokes I promise! I can't leave out that cute little bird, that is one of our Flying Unicorn Adornments. She had the lacy look so of course I had to use her! LOL

Here are a couple of close ups of this one..
 This image is so gorgeous! I found it on Pinterest. I have no idea who the designer is of this graphic. But please know this. Your design is stunning and is perfect for someone who needs a "Angel" to watch over them! So thank you very much!!

Another close up..

  I thought I would give Christmas a try on my 2nd card.. I have seen the gorgeous Christmas trees that Jen has made, and have been dying to give them a try. I also happen to have some gorgeous Fabscraps "Angelic" Collection Christmas paper that my bud Shona sent me (THANK YOU! :)) I have been wanting to play with them, so I thought this is the perfect time to play! Here is my card..

 Other than the paper on this one I used, another Manor House Ornate Frame (told ya I am addicted to them!) Prima Holiday Crimson poinsettias, More Yummy Flying Unicorn Venise Lace and Maya Road Chipboard word "Joy". On the mediums I used Mixed Media Inx in School house and Truffle, some Stampendous aged white embossing enamel on the trees. On both cards the vining is Heartfelt creations dies.  Here are some close ups..

 Just love Jen's trees!! Not exactly like hers in shape but the way she made it. LOVE!

Hope you enjoyed, and hope to see ya creating those special cards! Hugs for now!!

** WCYDW Homemade Gelli plate **

Hello all!! Welcome to another WCYDW!! Ok so the gelli plate faze is going full steam. I had heard about doing a homemade one. It sparked the curiosity in me to see if I could make one. So I explored the net and Youtube and found a recipe! YAY The lady whose recipe I finally decided to try was Shaz's. So I converted some of her measurements to teaspoons and cups opposed to oz. I saw first off my errors on how to mix (the Knox gelatine likes to clump!) and don't use a paper bowl for example. (Knox gelatine likes to stick! LOL) So I thought hey this would make for a good WCYDW tute! So here we go!! Watch the video and then come on back, because I have the recipe that I used right here..

Ok so here is what you're gonna need to make your Gelli plate! :)

Glycerin- 2x 6oz bottles = 12 oz
Knox Gelatine- 7 packs (small box will do)
Sugar- 6 tablespoons
Water - 1x 8oz bottle drinking water. MAKE SURE ITS COLD

2x mixing bowls microwave safe holds and will hold 7 cups
Container - You plan on storing your Gelli plate (Needs to have smooth bottom no marks or ripples)
Mixing spoon- If you're worried about the ones you already have (I would use plastic or metal ones)
Brayer- for playing later!


Get your 2 bowls out in one pour your cold water in and mix in your packs of Knox Gelatine. I did this 2 at a time till I used all 7 packs. Mix until no clumps exist.

Then get your other bowl and mix your sugar and glycerin together. Mix until smooth.

Now combine one bowl into the doesn't matter which way you go and heat in microwave until mixture is clear and hot. Pour into your container and let sit on counter for 6 hours. Then play! :)

Here is my projects I made with my finished BG's..

I got carried away a little with the tag on decorating it and almost completely lost my BG! Here is what I used on the tag and card.

Impression plates
Gouache paints
Claudine Hellmuth paints
White Gel pen
Jacquard lumiere paints

Impression plates
Prima circles mask
Jacquard Lumiere Paints
Claudine Hellmuth paints
New Venise lace (YUM!)
Manor House Ornate frames

***"KOM LO's Using Flying Unicorn's KOM "Heart's Twilight"***

Hey guys!! Back with ya today to show you a couple more Lo's using this months KOM "Hearts Twilight". This was I believe my all time FAVE kit!! OMGoodness is this baby loaded!!

First up a LO of my kiddo's using the Marion Smith PP in this kit! OK so I am totally smitten with these PP! I love that this kit (Embelly Addon) there are some Prima stencils!! TOOO COOL!!! I was soo excited to play with them. I used a little inker and then on the inside of the outlines took a white sharpie paint marker and gave it some highlights. I thought it turned out pretty cool! Let me show you..

Some of the extra things that I used was the gorgeous metal Flying Unicorn Adornments and the black is actually some of the packaging from the Prima flowers that I used from the flower add on. The square patches are the new Finn Prima stamps. The Flower add on is LOADED with Gorgeous Prima and Petaloo flowers!!!! The Title "together" was the awesome Adornit wooden laser cuts from the main kit. YUM!! Here are some close ups..

LOL can ya tell this is like one of my fave pics of the kids! Rare moment they aren't arguing!!! LOL

The PP that was used are From Marion's "Mad Tea Party" collection and they are Alice, Spot of tea (Main KOM), and Wonderland (PP Addon) 

Ok Next up.. 

This LO was done of my new sweet furbabies.. After Macy passed our house was like a huge void was here. We all felt it and it was bad. I couldn't believe that even my DH felt the same way. I just had to make it stop. I couldn't take it anymore. So we ALL talked about getting another furbaby (me and DH said we would never after my to sweet ones passed.. I take all that back now! LOL) after the kids agreed not only to the idea but also to help out which was a must!! We began our search. We found a sweet and wonderful lady Tina who has a kennel online (County line kennels). She was close too!! We found 2 that we wanted to see. She brought them both and well... We left with them both! LOL Double trouble!! Heehe I told DH that Macy must have made it to heaven and God saw that we needed 2 to help fill the whole in our hearts.. So without further adieu my little furbabies.. Sophie and Sadie..

Here are some close ups..

They are the most sweetest babies!! Awwwww!! But boy I forgot how potty training was uggggg!!! LOL This time around the kids get to have a hand in it!! YAY!! Heehe
