***UNITY FRIENDS WITH FLAIR*** Blog Hop!!!


Good morning!!! It's an even better morning, because right now I am in SUNNY Las Vegas, Nevada!!! Wooo-hoooo !! Anyway...down to the matter at hand.


Welcome to Unity's Friends with Flair Blog Hop. I couldn't let a small out of town trip with my wonderful husband get in the way of a Unity Blog Hop!! Today I chose to use Jimmi's Hip Hop Sketch Challenge as my flair. Once again, I used my new fav technique...Watermark Resist (you can see a video HERE). This card is a little funky and kind of out of my comfort zone. There was no uniform way of putting this card together. Surprisingly, it felt good.

Here is what I used:
Cardstock: Glossy White (Ranger), Pixie Pink, Whisper White (Stampin' Up); Ink: Taken With Teal, Orchid Opulance, Pink Passion, Ballad Blue (Stampin' Up), Jet Black (Stazon), Big & Juicy Hydrangia (Ranger); Stamps: March Kit of the Month "Rockin It", February Kit of the Month "Nothing But Blue Skies" (Unity Stamp Co.); Extra's: Ribbon (Joann's), flower (American Crafts), brad (Joann's), crimper (Fiskers)

I love getting a brand new Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co. in my mailbox monthly. Check out how you can also HERE. I know I include this on every post, but it is such a good deal, I have to pass it along. AND the stamps are awesome!!

Please let me know what you think of my "out of my comfort zone card". You comments inspire me to keep heading down to my craft room.

Have a super weekend!!!!
