Graphic 45 Christmas Mini

Wow, it's amazing how fast this month is flying by!  I can't believe it's almost the middle of December.  Where has it gone?  I thought it was about time to show you a Christmas mini album that I made using Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Paper available at The Flying Unicorn Store

 I've added from my stash some bling and flowers along with lots of lace and ribbon.

Silent Auction

Please join us November 26th through November 28th for Flying Unicorn’s First Annual Silent Auction of all things scrapbook, all from the private stashes of the Flying Unicorn Creative Team. All proceeds from the auction will go to benefit Women in Distress. Some of us are putting together kits, some of us are destashing. There’s bound to be something you’ll want; place your bid, and it might be yours. Bids will be accepted until midnight November 28th and auction winners will be notified the next day.

As the month draws to a close, we want to thank all of you who posted your lovely work in the gallery, sent in your donations and made purchases in the store. We met our goal of 1,000 uploads to the gallery on November 16th, thereby earning a $1,000 donation from the Flying Unicorn store to Women in Distress. Remember that throughout November 5% of all sales will be donated to Women in Distress.
The Silent Auction is our last fundraiser for Women in Distress this year; we hope you’ll help us help our sisters who have suffered so much by placing a bid.

Many of us know women who have had to live with the fear and reality of abuse. Flying Unicorn needs your help to empower these women to find the courage to take control of their lives and leave the nightmares they are living.
You can help and here’s how. For each purchase that you make during the month of November, Flying Unicorn will donate 5% of the sales proceeds to Women in Distress. In addition, you can help by uploading your projects to the Flying Unicorn gallery. A donation of $1 will go to Women in Distress for each and every project that you upload to a maximum of $1,000.

If you would like to make a cash contribution to Women in Distress, Flying Unicorn is collecting donations on behalf of Women in Distress from November 1 through November 30, 2011. Your PAYPAL donation can be made by simply sending money to cs@flyingunicornllc.com. Please add WID In the note section. You can also mail a check, made payable to WOMAN IN DISTRESS, to:

A Few Cards

I just wanted to pop in to share a few cards with you.  These three were published in the Enchanted Creations Magazine in October and the Christmas one was in November's issue.

This Steampunk card used a digi image that I added Ranger Crackle to and raised with pop dots.
  I used Tim Holtz stamps and grungeboard along with some ink splatters.

This steampunk card I used misting/masking with some stamping. 
 I added some stickles and Tim Holtz Tape as well. There are some perfect pearlz on the wings but the shimmer doesn't show in the photo.

This card was made using Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium line available at The Flying Unicorn

Thanks for stopping in today!
