Lord have MERCY! It's UNITY DAY!

I love Thursday! It's Friday-eve and a day to celebrate all things Unity:)
I created this first card with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch! Her sketches are fabulous and this one was NO exception!
And here's my card:
The tree and sentiment stamps are from the December 09 KOM, "Simply Magical"! Isn't that tree to die for? I love it! I think I throw "I love it!" around pretty freely (NO! GET OUT!) but it's true every time:) I stamped the tree in Old Olive ink and then colored the leaves in with various Copics. I also colored the sentiment in with a Copic marker! The paper is from the Girl Friday collection by Cosmo Cricket! That paper is too fun!
Okay, SURPRISE! I made another card, lol! DH is out at a function with his office so I had some time to get crafty tonite. This is another card using stamps from the December 09 KOM!
All paper here is by PTI (Rustic Cream, Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate, and Autumn Leaves dp) I colored the little flower with Copics and added some Ice Stickles to the buds. I even sewed! I love how much a little bit of sewing adds to a card, just the perfect finishing touch!
Make sure to stop by the Unity Blog for the details on another fantastic sale! You can also see a list of the other DT girls who are participating today:)
On another note, I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words about my last post, you sure know how to make a girl feel loved:) Thank you so much to every single one of you who visit me so faithfully. I may not reply to each and every one of you, but you are all so important to me, and so loved:) Thanks friends!!!

Ok, I am seriously having to pick up my JAW off the floor right now....I don't even know where to start!!! I ADORE the CC DP and that awesome placement of the tree and pearls on the first one, and your buttony bow, of course ;) The 2nd card is so awesome-the black stitching stands out so striking against the cardstock and your coloring on the flower is fabulous! It's NO wonder you're a dirty girl, my friend=you ROCK!!!!
