DT Tuesday - Featuring our Patter Cross!

It is Design Team Tuesday!
...and TODAY we are happy to SHOW OFF
I luv Patter! Her work is Unique, BRIGHT, and simply put inspiration to the eyes!
Patter is amazing and her support of Unity is appreciated beyond words.

This card was made with Whimsy Flowers from Unity.
Make it a GOOD DAY.
That is the one for me, today...let me tell you!
I will need to MAKE it a good day, and I did not get a WINK of sleep last night. CHA is kicking my behind! I think I may start planning for WINTER CHA next Monday!
I do love that sentiment, though! Really it is that simple. It was created as part of the Unity Kit in honor of Chris's mother. She stopped in one day when Unity was just starting and said...I read something really nice today and it just made sense; "Make it a good day..." - Simple. So I used it in this kit.
This was made with Flirty Flowers. This is one of my favorite kits and will be used with our Make-n-Takes at CHA. It was created by the talented Cassie Medema.
Do ya love em? Let Patter know!
Here is a bit about our gal o'the day!
Introducing Patter:
{she used the following comments when she applied for my DT, and I am sneaking it on the blog - I hope that is alright, Patter!}
I have been married to the love of my life, Michael, since 1989. I was first introduced to scrapbooking in 1997, three years after our identical triplet girls were born. I am totally addicted. Paper crafting is my passion, my outlet for relaxation, and my joy. I love to alter books, make mini books, create cards, and organize! Sometimes I think I spend more time organizing my scrapbook stash than scrapping. That is what happens I guess when you love to buy scrapbook supplies like I do!

I also design for Create My Keepsake and Inspire Me Card Kits, I am a contributing author for Scrapjazz, I have my own sketch blog, and I am also a challenge leader for Faith Sisters. I have been published in Cards and in several online articles.

My wonderful husband, Michael, knows that scrapbooking is what keeps his wife happy so he is always there to make sure I get my scrapping time. Yes, I am blessed. And besides taking care of my precious daughters, I also teach Lamaze and Infant Massage for a large hospital, and I am in leadership in Bible Study Fellowship.
I adore Patter's Faith. She has shared the following Bible Verse as her
"favorite quote"
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.”
Isaiah 40:28a

Comforting to say the least, don't you think? I was inspired by Patter's love of bible quotes, and I know that there are NOT MANY BIBLICAL stamps out there, so I asked her to share some MORE of her favorites with me.
My attempt is to put a kit of biblical quotes together by September as an added bonus to the line of Unity Stamps.
I will pick some of her favorites and some of my own and attempt to build a phenomenal kit out of it.
Thanks Patter for the inspiration.
Be sure to take a little stroll over to Patter's Blog for more inspiration. Cute, adorable, creations over there!
Well, it is going to be SHORT and SWEET today, girls. I still have a MILLION things to do prior to 4 a.m. when the Unity Clan hits the road.
I may be back later!
Stay tuned for TONS of Pictures from CHA!
Hooray, Hooray!

I love the card and stamp sets. first time i am on the blog and I checked out unity store also. wow, is all I can about the stamps the stamps. i found alot I want, now just to get them somehow. hubby is on the rampage about my crafting again. :)

Justme said...

You have TRIPLETS??? OMG I don't know how you have time for this! God Bless! I loved it when my kids not triplets one girl and one boy were young!! It was the best time of my life.

Very pretty bright cheerful cards. I love these projects. I'm finding it easier with your styles stamps and samples to move on to the newer stamping styles, I'm too stuck with my love of coloring and mixed media. This is fun for me. Some of the things out there are too gaudy for me but these bright cheerful colors I love!
I am looking forward to the word set stamps and purchasing some of your larger verse stamps, I just love them and they will be so useful to me with some of my background techniques or flower painting and stamping and then I won't have a blank front empty space or inside of my card. I get tired of the one liners!
