Unity Challenge Time

Our first 2012 monthly Unity Challenge starts today!

This month’s challenge theme is NEW BEGINNINGS.
New love, new home, new year, new you or….


Don’t you just love new puppy love.  Puppies, puppies, puppies are soooooooooooooo cute.  And I’ve been wanting to use this little guy for awhile.  So darn adorable.

Hello kraft… I’ve missed you.
White card stock has been a staple lately, so I really needed to get my kraft on something terrible.  I also grabbed some older Basic Grey papers.  Trying out the handwriting again… why is it so hard for me to write on cards.  For some reason it goes all wonky.

The BIG prize is for
100 random stamps AND
a free kit of your choice valued at $45 or under!!!

Check out all the deets HERE!

{ippity} is now available on the Unity website.  Just click on your favorite ippity chick and you can get your {ippity} with your Unity.  So cool!

    Awww such a cutie! Love the kraft, it looks great!

    Ooh, doesn’t this Tailwagger look cool in “negative” tones — white on dark instead of dark on white. I’ll have to try that! I also like the faux stitching/arrow pointing to him! Super cute card.

I love the arrow, and the newsprint background…well, I don’t know if you’re suggesting what I *think* you’re suggesting, but as a recent new puppy owner, lol 😉
