Happy Thursday

Yay for THURSDAY!!!  Hope you are having fun hopping with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.

Today, I have a set of cards using the brand new sentiment kit for March/April… Thanks Above & Beyond.   Lots of amazing sayings for thank you cards and I just love the butterfly and flower images.

I’m all about the new transfer foil craze!!!  It is soooooo pretty in real life.  I had such a hard time getting a good angle to capture the shine, hope you can see it.  I was sold as soon as Jennifer McGuire posted her tips on how to do this technique without a big fancy machine.  I used the laminator method she demonstrated in her video.  I stamped my images on cardstock, scanned them into my computer and then printed them out using a laser printer.  Then, I ran it through the laminator.  Super easy really and the results are ever so lovely.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

Here are all the girls hopping today…  just click on the next pretty girl in line.
