So these Unity Sketch Challenges Are Addicting!

The September Unity Kit of the Month Sketch Challenge is up and I am D-U-N --Done! :)

My little helper wanted to make her own card for this challenge too, so I said, "Have at it!" and let her loose in my craft stuff.  Here is her lovely creation!

We both chose the February 2010 Kit of the Month to take on this challenge. It's the first kit I ever purchased and it's still one of my favorites. I just love those little birds! My card is actually a card front. I think I might use it on a scrapbook page. I'm all about making things that I can use and keep. I'm also way behind with my scrapbooks, so really I should focus any craft energy on those.

These nests are great to make. You really can't mess them up and all you do is layer (and layer, and layer) strips of paper together, round out the bottom, and cut the top to the desired shape. And there you go. A nest! I also dug through my scrap pile for the paper piecings. It's so liberating to get rid of those scraps that I've been hanging onto for these sorts of occasions. I think the orange dotted paper is Creative Memories paper that I've had forever!

And there you have it! This is what a Friday night looks like around here! Mom and daughter sitting around at the craft table. She is so my little clone and I just love her!
