Unity Friends With Flair

I have been busy getting ready for World Card Making Day, which is this Saturday, October 2. I will be having a BLOG CANDY giveaway so make sure you check back in then. I did manage to make this fairly quick and easy card for the SRM Stickers/Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge this week. I really enjoy making cards and entering contests and challenges, however, I end up with a huge pile of cards sitting around. Now I box them up and ship them off to Operation Write Home so that the military overseas have handmade cards to send home. I love using my Unity stamps to make cards for Operation Write Home, there are so many wonderful images and sentiments to choose from. Head over to and see what you can do to help this worthy cause.

Now for the part you've all been looking for - The Blinkie! Yep, that's it, right there.
Unity Flair!
Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win some fabulous Unity Stamps! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out my BLOG CANDY post on Saturday October 2.

Unity Friends With Flair

I tried a couple of new things this week and I hope you like the results. The first card features "Collage Stamping" which I heard is all the rage now. It was a lot of fun combining multiple stamps to create the image and it gave me a chance to use my Glimmer Mists, which I don't use often enough. I have so many wonderful Unity stamps that I can't wait to use for this technique. The second card features some decorative packing tape that I purchased this week. I think it is a really easy way to add color and pizazz to a card. Have a great time on the Blog Hop today and leave a comment if you have time. Thanks!

Unity Friends With Flair

Can it be Friday again already???? I didn't have time this week to do much crafting but managed to squeak this one out. Just a simple note card featuring the adorable bird and ledger image from Unity's August 2010 KOM. Black and white gives my cards so much classic appeal and the little pop of aqua gives it the zip. Hope you like. Did you see Unity's September 2010 Kit of the Month??? It is really cute, full of really usable images and sentiments! I can't wait to get mine! Things are really hopping over at Unity, the orders from Summer CHA are pouring in, people are being hired and everyone is working hard to keep up. Not bad in this economy! Congrats to Angela and all the Unity Team for a job well done! Check it out at
