January 2021Friends of Unity Blog Hop ~ Black & White

Hello, friends! Welcome to my January blog and welcome to 2021!

There is so much to be said regarding 2020 and our hopes for 2021. Let me just say; may this year bring you blessings beyond measure.

I love this months cue of Black & White. There is so much beauty in simplicity and b&w is the most beautiful of all.

My first card (and favorite of the 4) was made using the gorgeous swag and make you think senti from Start Anew. How appropriate. Maybe it should read, "last year was heavy, put it down". 

This next card is a beauty using the gorgeous window scene from Outside your Window. The senti is from the set Just Because.  This is one of those cards that is soooo much prettier in person!

This card uses the beautiful flowers and a happy birthday senti from the July 2020 Sentiment Kit called Aging Gorgeously. (The top panel die is from Gina Marie Designs called bit little chain.)

This final card uses on the gorgeous houses from Warm Wishes for you Home. This makes such a beautiful winter card.

I would love to know which card is your favorite!

I did not have good lighting today for theses photos. Poo!! They are so much prettier bright and white!

My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!

As always~

  1. Wow, beautiful cards my friend. I love them all.

  2. These all are so beautiful! Love that sentiment on the first card, great opening. Blessings in this New Year!

  3. Amazing and beautiful cards, Bobbie Sue! The sentiment on the first card is perfection! If I have to pick a fave... I'd say the last card. The cabins in the Warm Wishes for your Home stamps are my absolute favorite stamps right now and I love the card you created! Simply beautiful! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration sweet friend!

  4. Oh my, these are fabulous!!
    I do love your first card, but I'm with Crystal ;) The cabin is such a beautiful stamp and I love how you used it!!
    Inky hugs!!

  5. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cards, I don't think I can pick a favourite, they are all so good

  6. Gorgeous designs, and perfect little additions to finish them off. I concur that the first is my fave.

  7. Love them all, but the last card with the little house is my favorite! Love that set and this is another perfect way to use it. Thanks for sharing your creativity, Bobbi Sue!

  8. These are just gorgeous! You can't ever go wrong with B& W as it's so very elegant. I think the last card is my fave - I love that house!!

  9. I have forgotten how beautiful and simple black and white cards are. They are just stunning! I must try this again soon! Thanks for inspiring us Bobbie Sue!

  10. Beautiful bunch of
    cards and I love
    the window scene.

  11. Beautiful images for your b&w cards! I especially love the Warm Wishes for your Home stamp you used! That house design is awesome!

  12. Beautiful cards! I can’t decide which one is my favorite. Love both the start anew and the house one.

  13. Love them all but the last one is my favorite! Thank you for sharing!!

  14. Loving the B & W theme!! All your cards are wonderful and I was just thinking how I in particular like that they were more of a creamy background than bright white! LOL

  15. The black and white combos look so amazing and I love them all. I especially like your first card because the sentiment really hits home.

  16. Black and White cards are awesome, I really like the flower cards with the different backgrounds. Each background adds another dimension to the card.

  17. I love B&W cards, and all of yours are gorgeous! I think the first one is probably my favorite.

  18. Your cards are all gorgeous! I absolutely love the first and last ones...not sure I could pick a favorite between them.

  19. Bobbie Sue, these are all so gorgeous! You really rocked this cue. I may have to case your first card.

  20. All four of these cards are beautiful, and we must have similar tastes, because I have all of these images too. I don't think I can pick a favorite, but I particularly love the embellishments on the Window card, and the way you just highlighted a few of the bricks. On the last card, I love the way you paired it with the plaid paper. Love all of them!

  21. They are all beautiful! Love the black and white. My favorite is the first one - yesterday is heavy.

  22. All of your cards are great, the first one is stunning! I love the image and beautiful font of the sentiment. It is just perfection!

  23. Love these, black and white is one of my favorite combos!

  24. Oh my gosh! I am truly speechless with how lovely your cards are! You are really a very talented person!

  25. Just beautiful cards. Love the stamps and designs. Thanks for the inspiration! Happy New Year, sweet friend!

  26. Love all of your cards! I cannot pick a favorite! So amazing with black and white!

  27. I love all of your cards! I hate when the lighting isn't what you would like! I've had that happen to me. I am loving everyone's black and white creations! It is hard to pick a favorite but I think mine would be the last one, the house with winter scene!

  28. I love these my friend! Each is gorgeous! Its hard to choose a favorite, but if I must... The Swag stamp set - first card!

  29. Sweet Ms. Bobbie Sue, gorgeous gorgeous cards! Each has their very own beautiful story... the welcoming warm Winter cottage, the fresh flowers of Spring, throwing open the windows to enjoy the clean Summer air, and the autumnal crisp beauty of Fall. Your black an white is brighter than rainbows! Stunning!

    1. Oh my.. I was so enamored by your lovely cards I forgot to wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!! (((Hugs)))

  30. Of course, I love all four of your creations. My favorite has to be the house as that stamp has grabbed my attention ever since it was released. Your truly have a talent, Miss Bobbie Sue!

  31. These are all so elegant and gorgeous! I LOVE them! The house is just WOW!

  32. These are all beautiful and I love the small details that add to your design. Leaving the images uncolored really let them shine.
