I did it! 52 Weeks of FWF!
Last January, I made the new year's resolution to link up to Unity's Friends With Flair each week. Well, 52 weeks later, I'm proud to say, I did it!
I have a few cards to share with you this week. A couple were on my blog earlier this week, but haven't seen much traffic and they have great Unity stamps, so I'm showing them again, and I made a card today for the Unity "Be Inspired" Challenge. I'll show you my challenge card first.
I used the card sketch, turned it sideways, and took a little artistic license with it to come up with this:
I used papers that I got for 99 cents from Unity Stamp Company. The stamp is a Unity/Stephanie Ackerman co-brand called "Small Things/Great Love". It is my New Year's advice to you, and a great motto to live by every day of the year! There's also some UmWow Studio chipboard that I embossed with Creative Inspirations Paint Deliquesce Fine Black embossing powder on this card. There's a little paper piecing on the heart.
Next, an anniversary card I made a couple weeks ago for my husband:
On the inside I wrote, "through snow or sleet, our love is complete." How sappy is that? This card uses the Unity Itty Bitty stamp, Rain or Shine. There's some 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon and a 3 Girl JAM Real Life Flair button on this card, too.
And, a couple of New Year's cards for you. I made this one for this week's Cutting Café post, but it uses a Unity Fashionista, so I'm sharing it again here:
This is Anastasia, and she is ready for a party!
The sentiment is from the Unity Sassy Pants set.
I have one more card to leave you with. No Unity Stamps here, but it's a great card to send you off with:
I used more UmWow chipboard, embossed with Creative Inspirations Paint Deliquesce Super Sparkle Gold. The card is a cutting file from the Silhouette Online Store. I painted some Gold Creative Inspirations Paint behind the sentiment.
My New Year's resolution for 2014? I want to get more involved in the Unity FB Show & Tell Group. I've been missing the fun! And, my more serious New Year's resolution? I'd like to see if I can go all year without buying any new scrapbook paper. I HAVE to use up my stash! This'll be a tough one!!!
Happy New Year, everyone!
