Jimmi's Sunday Favorites!

Good Sunday morning and Happy Halloween!

Hope you're having a good weekend so far and plan to have a great Sunday!
I'll be lazing around the house, watching TV, basically just chillin'.

I do have some BEAUTIFUL cards to show you! They are ALL from the Unity Gallery on SCS, I hope you'll visit the gallery often and leave some love. There is SO MUCH talent just pouring out of the gallery, we can barely contain it all ;)

Gorgeous and INSPIRING cards don't you think?
It wouldn't be a Sunday if I didn't share more than cards.

My all-time favorite picture of the week (of Rachel):My favorite outfit of the week (me as a butterfly):
My favorite paper of the week (Echo Park Wintertime)

My favorite make-up purchase (elf 100 eyeshadow pallet, I got mine at Target last night, it's sold out online...but it's a MUST HAVE):and you have to get this elf eyeshadow brush to go with it, I bought all 3 they had at Target last night, I probably have 20 of them...I just never want to run out, lol! AND THEY ARE $1!My favorite clothing purchase...I think it will be CUTE with my leggings and tall boots, don't you?
I just ordered it online last night so I'm just loving it from the picture, we'll see (there was a $50 off $100 NY&Co coupon that expired last night at I was ordering around 11:30pm when I finally gave in! that coupon is too good to ignore!)
Well, I was talkative this morning, hope that's OK with y'all. I'm off to watch some TV and maybe have a nap now...I was up at 8am! HORROR, now that's scary Halloween stuff right there! Don't know what came over me...EEEEEKKKK!

Have a FABOOLOUS day!

Guest Designer Monday


Hello Unity Friends!

Today I have a really FUN post for you!

I've had this idea swirling around in my head for some time now, and just decided it was time to get my ideas onto paper...

This is what I like to call my "Brave Girl wall hanging." Romantic, yes? LOL

Here are some up-close shots so you can see the detail...


You are just right...


She sprouted wings...




The wall hanging itself is from Archiver's and it's made by 7 Gypsies. As soon as I spotted it, I knew I could make my Brave Girl project from this. :)

Happy Stamping! ~Julie

Jimmi's Favorite Things Sunday!

Morning everyone :)

Today is a beautiful day!

Enuff said, let's begin!

All of the cards come from the Unity SCS Gallery, hope you'll visit everyday!

Let's start with Miss Lydia (Understandblue)...yellow skies...ain't nothin' but yellow skies... :)Here is a card with striking colors by ddaws:

This vintagey card by debdeb is so elegant:

Here is a CUTE card by katolejnik:

I LOVE the colors of this card by Stampin Fanatic:

dahlhousedesigns made this simple inspiring card:
Now I thought I'd show you the boots I got yesterday but I can't seem to find an image to copy here so I'll just have to use one I took, but you can find them at DSW and they are SO cute and SO comfy, love them! The have the zipper on the inside but it doesn't unzip all the way it's a 3/4 zip so they are perfect to pull on and then you can pull your jeans down into them and the top stays at the top and doesn't fall down...serious science going on here!And here is the sweater I am loving from NY&Co right now, I want to wear it everyday!Oh and these Jean Leggings...they are really denim they are just super stretchy and tight...are PERFECT to go in those cute boots, I know, I tried it last night :)

And now I'm off to ULTA for some of my favorite lip gloss (Dolly) that I am out of it...TRAGIC!

Have a FABULOUS day!
