WOW!...2 cards in 1 day. I have so many newer Unity stamps that I haven't had a chance to play with. This is one of Angie's girls - the trio, Vicki, Catherine, and Leica. If you've seen the kit then you know that I only used the framed portion of the stamp and paired it with a sentiment from the April KOTM. The image and sentiment are colored with Prismacolor pencils and markers. For me, it's a matter of the color I want and what's closest at-hand. All of the paper is My Mind's Eye. I added a bit of baker's twine and some sequins. Enjoy!

I only started doing the Unity Stamp Company Friends with Flair (always? on Friday) a few weeks ago. When they didn't post last Friday, I was amazed at how disappointed I was. That's OK, 'cause they're back today and I'm gonna play. The images and sentiment are from their April KOTM. This is a subscription, but I'm here to say that you're not going to get a better value (20-26+ amazing stamps) delivered right to your door every month for only $31. It's such a deal! This background paper is not quite what I had dreamt about (yes, I had a dream that I had the perfect bamboo paper lurking somewhere in my stash!) but since most of it is covered, I think it's okay. I stamped and heat-embossed the panda and added a bit of color to his/her flower with some markers. The sentiment is stamped and again a bit of coloring. The little washi tape stamp in the lower right is just stamped on red cardstock. Dies are Spellbinders and there is a bit of doodling. Enjoy.

I had so much fun playing along with Unity Stamp Co. Friends with Flair last Friday that I had to do it again. Thanks so much to all of you who wrote such sweet comments on last week's entry. I used the last sympathy card in my stash this week for one of my husband's co-workers so I decided to try something really clean and simple. I'm using one of my Unity Itty-Bitty's (Bottled Blossoms) and a heart-felt greeting from this month's sentiment kit. This was so easy...stamp, emboss, stamp, emboss, trim, and adhere. Really!, that's it. I love the look of white on kraft. BTW...Happy Birthday Unity.

Here's a little baby card I just completed. I've never played along with Unity Stamp Company's Friday Friends with Flair so I think I'll join in today. A very simple card using two Unity Itty-Bitty sets and some scraps I had on my counter. Enjoy!

Decided it's time to try the Unity Challenge for March (goes through April 17th). They have 3 challenges each month...a layout sketch, a card sketch, and a color challenge. Here is the card sketch:
Here is my interpretation.
