Life Is Sew Sweet!

Happy Monday! We're in May already...wow, can't believe how fast this year is moving along. As most of you know, the Unity Website has been having issues and it's made ordering a bit confusing for some of you. Angela and the rest of the team have been working crazy mad to try to get it back to normal. As of Sunday night, it still wasn't quite there, but from the bottom of their hearts they thank you and appreciate your patience.

I have been having a blast designing for Unity and have been blessed with the opportunity to see a bit of what goes on behind the scenes...all I can say is WOW! All the things that go on, the preparations, the planning, the team work...well I'm just floored. The word UNITY is quite fitting for this company and the group of amazing people that work to make it what it is. I'm glad I've been able to be a part of it for a month and looking forward to May.

I also wanted to thank all of you for your sweet comments you've left on my Unity posts and for the warm welcome you extended from the day I was announced as a guest designer. To show my appreciation, I'd love to give the following gift set to one of you.



Here's a photo of just the box.



A photo of just the cards.



All the images and sentiment are from one of the newly released Cosmo Cricket/Unity line of stamps. The set I'm using here is called Material Girl. The size of the note cards are 3"x3" and all fit into the adorable little box. Inside you will also find some envelopes to go with it. The patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop paper pad. I added some sewing to each of the note cards as well as to the box cover. On the spools, after I colored and cut them out, I added some embroidery floss before adhering them to the card front.

As I said above I'd love to give this set to one of you. Leave me a comment telling me one thing that is sweet in your life right now. In other words, what is one of your blessings that you are grateful for today. I have many, with first and foremost my family; but I also have the amazing opportunity to share what I love with all of you and with every project I post, I hope I inspire you to create.

Now, what about you? Leave me a comment here and I will announce the winner on my blog's Hip Hop post this Thursday, May 6th!

Hugs & Smiles,
Carolina

I feel blessed to have an amazing husband and kids. We may not have the most spectacular life, but we love and support each other through thick and thin.

OMGosh! This is one amazing card set. I would love to have one of your creative and inspiring handmade goodies. I'm so blessed for so many things. One thing is that all my family members are safe from the Nashville Flood, maybe not all their houses. I'm also so blessed that I found UNITY. I just love the company and all the peeps. Thanks so much for a chance.

Lacey said...

Those cards are adorable!! Great work :) I'm thankful for my boyfriend Matt. That is the first thing I thought of when I read that. Not that he has done anything in particular, it's all the little things he does that no one else would notice or necessarily appreciate, but mean the world to me. :) Have a great day!

Catherine said...

Those ARE so sweet! Oh I have so much to be greatful for. I've always lived my life everyday being greatful for atleast one thing, rather than spending my time complaining. But right now we are so blessed and greatful to be pregnant with a HEALTHY baby and due in July! It's been a long road for us - 6 years and 2 losses to get here (one at 29 weeks 3 years ago). So we know all to well what being blessed means! I think I'm the happies mommy-to-be in the world!

Such a SWEET set Carolina! This set is near and dear to my heart because I play with paper, as well as sew! Sewing is my first love, but creating "paper pretties" is not far behind.

I feel so blessed and grateful for my family. My children are my life!

Thank you for the chance to win such a beautiful set of cards made by you.

You are an inspiration, Carolina! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us all! Love your "Sew Sweet" set! It reminds me of my mom who is a seamstress. I'm blessed to still have my mom, she's healthy and active and a very young 72. Have a super sweet day.

Stephanie Zito said...

These are so adorable Carolina! The sweetest thing in my life right now and that I feel truly blessed to have are my 2 beautiful girls (Alexandra 4) and Isabella (2 1/2). I can't imagine my life without these 2 little angels!

The one sweet thing in my life right now is my grandson, who turns 2 this week - looking at the world through his eyes is such a blessing. I would SEW love to win this fabulous set!

Stephanie said...

I am blessed by the love of an adoring, indulgent & generous husband. After my salvation, he is God's greatest blessing to me. My children & grandson are next in line. :)

What an adorable card set. I love that you wrapped the spools with floss. So cute! Thanks for the chance to win.

I am grateful and honoured, to teach. I love my students so much, particularly around now - exam time !

Thanks for reminding me to look at my blessings! It has been a hard weekend for us - the death of a family member, and the hospitalization of another while on vacation many miles from home, causing emergency travel late at night and lots of prayers and rearranging of schedules. But as I contemplate my blessings, I am reminded that I have a Savior, I have a husband that loves me, and I have healthy children and grandchildren! Love and blessings to all who read this and remember to count your blessings!

Kathy said...

My husband and my kids make life "sew sweet". Your box and cards are "sew cute".

Darling project! Now I will have to track down the stamps...
The big big big blessing in my life right now is my sweet 19 year old daughter. Today we start the 5th week in children's hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. On Saturday, she had her 2nd brain surgery during this stay (after 3 brain surgeries in January), and today, she is showing good improvement. I know it sounds melodramatic, but we have had so many moments over the past few months when we thought we would never get to today. She has a long road ahead, but she is a strong girl. Here faith is inspirational to our family and friends.
On Saturday, the day of this recent surgery, I was moved to see the new Brave Girl stamp set. I had to order it in honor of Emi (my daughter), especially since it came out on such a big day in her life.
I have enjoyed looking at the Unity blog over the past month. So many lovely people gather here! I am grateful to witness the obvious friendship and community among you.
Blessings to all ! Beth

Kissin' Krafts said...

Love it! I cannot say 1 blessings, because I have 3 children and a wonderful husband! They each are a blessing in their own!

marilyn said...

I am blessed to have a wonderful, close-knit family. They may drive me crazy at times, but I wouldn't trade them for the world!

d'Dragon said...

What a cute set! I am extremely fortunate to have a wonderful husband who takes very good care of his rather decrepit wife!

maryanns said...

I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband and 2 great kids (even though they are 33 and 31, they are still kids to me!)

♥ Audrey ♥ said...

What a gorgeous creation. The one sweet thing in my life is my family.... having them by my side and enjoying life with them. As my boys are still young, I want to cherish every moment with them.

PamS said...

I am blessed with a wonderful husband that has supported every craft I have ever gotten involved in with no complaints. He always wants to see what I have completed.

Jules! said...

My 7 yr old recieved his First Holy Communion yesterday...a true blessing.

Wrightboysmum said...

I am thankful for my sleeping boys and the quiet time at the end of the day (it's late at night here in Scotland). Fingers crossed for all your technical problems to be sorted out. I love this set it's just so cool.

Carol said...

I, too, am grateful for my family, friends too! I am also thankful for this country and the freedom we have to pursue our dreams!

piradee talvanna said...

wow... i just adore this set... and the one sweetest thing in my life right now is dear hubby (its always great to get a hug from him after a long day at work).

Emily said...

I'm grateful for a very good friend of mine who I worked with for over a year but came to be my friend right before a time when I desperately needed one and is still hanging with me through my rough time. She is definitely a blessing. In fact, that "sew sweet" sentiment would be perfect for a card for her.

Sandra said...

I too have many things I am grateful for ... including my family and our health.
Love your cards!

Sandra

Sue D said...
