Unity Inspiration Hop

Hello, Unity Friends!  
Welcome to this Thursday's Inspiration Hop

**You should be arriving here from Lisa Arana's Blog**
And don't forget to comment as you visit each blog...
THREE lucky people will receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate!

I know that a lot of the ladies on the hop today are using the 
NEW! Stephanie Ackerman Sentiment Stamps...aren't they fabulous!?!
With so many CHA projects due I had to work ahead on my card for 
today, so I haven't had a chance to play with the newest red rubber goodies.
I did incorporate the July Inspiration Sketch & Color Challenges though:

 First I stamped the June KOTM image onto a light blue cardstock
and then colored in with Faber Castell Aquarelles.  

I also stamped back over the image and used a clear embossing powder.  
Keeping with the 'woodgrain' theme, I used a couple of veneer pieces from 
Studio Calico and printed clothespin by Little Yellow Bicycle!


Hope you enjoy all of the beautiful projects today...I can't wait to see them all myself :)
 Have fun!
