Flying Unicorn - BLOG HOP!!

Every year in the month of November, Flying Unicorn sponsors "Flying Unicorn Gives Back." This year, we've chosen a nationally recognized charity, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah.

For each project that is uploaded to our forum gallery, Flying Unicorn donates $1.00 to a maximum of $1,000 and. we've always reached our goal. With your help this year we will again! Flying Unicorn also donates 5% of all sales during the month of November to the charity. Finally, do not forget to mark your calendars for our Silent Auction November 8th - November 16th .

We have set up the Flying Unicorn page on the Best Friends site where monetary donations can be made as well to help us reach this years goal of $3000.00 in charitable donations.

Best Friends' mission of No More Homeless Pets tries to place dogs and cats who are considered "unadoptable" into good homes, and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs. Since its inception, the number of dogs and cats being destroyed in shelters has fallen to approximately 5 million a year. There has been much progress,but there is still much more to do. Best Friends made national headlines with
their intensive efforts in rescuing so many animals in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.

In honor of Best Friends, and the November Kit of the Month -Hear'ts Twilight - I would like to share with you the extra special project I made using the Kit of the month. I have great pleasure in introducing you to my beagle Cooper. I so love this little fur baby, he is full of energy and affection, he is well and truly part of our family. I decided to make a little canvas to put in my craft room with a photo of young Coop.

Leaky Shed Studios - Flying Unicorn

This month in my creative team kit for Flying Unicorn I had the absolute pleasure of finding a little package of wonderful chippies from Leaky Shed Studios. The moment I laid eyes on the Steampunk Cameo I knew she belonged on a tag, and that she needed to be shown in all her steampunk glory. I inked the chipboard piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then used a fabulous new product in the Flying Unicorn Store called Rusting Powder by Twiddleybitz. It is a little hard to make out in the photo but the chipboard upon close inspection looks like a rusted bit of metal.

Many thanks for looking, wishing you all a fabulous and creative weekend.

Creative Chemistry 102 - Day Five

Hi Everyone, 

I hopped off a plane from London less than 24 hours ago and the first thing I wanted to do was get back into my craft room and start creating. 

I have not been home for Day 1 - 4 of Creative Chemistry however I am here for Day 5 (and hope to catch up very quickly on Day 1 - 4).

The below tag was created using the distress rust technique, loved rusting up my little bird cage.  Thank you Tim, you never EVER cease to inspire me.

Thanks for looking everyone, wishing you a fabulous weekend.
