{12.2.11} FWF SMAK down

Happy day my Friends with Flair Unity peeps.  Soooooo excited about the new SMAK Unity Stamp Company monthly kit.
You have to check this out!

Rockin’ awesome right???

I need to really try some real mixed media projects soon.  I have a little journal sitting on my desk just begging to be inked up and painted.  But, I just don’t seem to have the time I need to get all messy and crafty.  But, I can totally see myself using this SMAK kit in my art journal.  LOVE all the great background stamps and the AWESOME size of these stamps.

But it is also very cool for cards!  Seriously COOL!  This one has a grungy masculine feel and would be great for a teenage boy.  Or a certain hubby in my house.  He loved this one.  Darn it, I should have saved it for his birthday this month.  But I might have one stashed somewhere.  Does anyone remember which card that was???  Ugh, I knew I would forget.  It has to be somewhere, right?

So back to this card.  I LOVE that awesome number background stamp.  I accidentally stamped it upside down at the top, but it still looks pretty cool.  And how rockin’ is that ribbon banner.  I stamped it on some patterned paper and added the ‘happy’ from the Sweet and Sour Jillibean set.  Then added some uber cool corduroy green Thickers letters.  I really like the feel of this card.  Hope you do too.

There are several options for this kit.  You can sign up for monthly delivery or just purchase this month only.  Love options.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to head back to the Unity blog to visit the rest of the Friends with Flair.
