{6.23.2011} hip hoppin’ with Unity


As most of you know, it is Hip Hop day for Unity.  Woo hoo!  If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop, you will want to jump on over to the Unity blog.  Angela has lots of FUN news for you today.  New release, BIG BIG sale… lots of Unity goodness opportunities.

Yummy right!

Today, I’m…

all smiles

I have another thank you card to share all made from this kit of the month.  I’m in love with the dark brown, kraft and green combo.  So I went with some kraft cardstock and then embossed the butterfly stamp with clear embossing powder.  I wasn’t sure how it would work out, but I then embossed the postage stamp over it in dark brown.  Yippee, it worked out perfectly.

I stamped the sending thanks sentiment in green.  Yum.  The little butterfly and twine finished everything off.

I {} comments…

I love to give them as much as I love to receive them.  I have to admit, I got frustrated with trying to find the perfect system to follow feeds and to leave comments.  People would get lost in the mess and it takes so much time to open up each blog to leave comments that I got a little lazy.  But I’m super EXCITED to find the PERFECT blog reader (no longer available) for me and it is so easy to follow everyone and to leave comments.  You might have noticed me out and about again.  Were you wondering, where the heck did she come from?  Ha.  I’ve been following you all along and now I get to let you know how much I love your stuff all the time!  So, if you want me to add you to my list to visit, just leave me a comment.

I’ll be back tomorrow for FWF Friday using one of the super cute sets on sale.
