Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome! It's a great day at Unity Stamp as we share new inspiration
and of course, a great deal from Unity this week:

**I'm following along behind the lovely Renee Aslette today**
And as with every Thursday's Hop, be sure to comment as you may be one of the three
lucky commentors to receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate

 I have used the NEW Layers of Life Stamp Kit for my first card

I'm the proud owner of some new Faber-Castell Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, so I 
chose to use them to color in the rulers.  I then spritzed on some Terra Cotta Walnut Ink
by Tsukineko (Imagine-Crafts).  The embossing folder is by Sizzix and I love using it 
on masculine cards!

I have a dear, 37 year-old co-worker/friend who was diagnosed with
 Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer this past Fall.  I made this card to send to her :)

I love that this ribbon is all decked out in butterflies!  I stamped the image onto pink
cardstock and then colored in the butterflies with Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  I also
shaded the outer areas with a darker pink, although it's a little hard to tell in the photo.
I used the NEW MAY SENTIMENT KIT 
(releasing NEXT WEEK on my project)
This kit will be available to you NEXT WEEK, but in the meantime remember to get the
 CURRENT SENTIMENT KIT for only $10. -
**Next stop is the sweet and talented, Shilo Miles' Blog**

I have lots more to share today, so I'll be seeing you again soon!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
