Unity FWF!


I'm so excited to be part of today's Unity FWF!  My young friend Keri called last weekend to ask if I would take her stamping at our LSS.  My new Unity store kit had just arrived from Kate at i {heart} papers so she didn't have to twist my arm!  When I saw this gorgeous designer paper (Scrap Within Reach, The Cottage Collection) I couldn't work on anything else until I had these cute images stamped and Copic colored!  I love these calm, relaxing hues, which go along perfectly with this sentiment!  So often things will work out better when we just have a little faith and quit trying SO hard!  It also helps to have a little encouragement from our friends!  ;)

I had almost finished my card and was wandering around the store looking for *just the thing it needed* not knowing exactly what that was.  I showed it to Janet and a little crowd of customers gathered round to see too.  One of them squealed and ran to her stash to bring out that adorable blingy dragonfly!  What a perfect match!  Gotta love this fabulous hobby that unites us all in our love of creativity through stamping and scrapping!  




Unity Flair!


I'm also really thrilled to have my blog be the home of the Unity FWF blinkie this week!  I'll be choosing a winner on Saturday morning, so be sure to leave your comment here for a chance to win!  Please, make it a sincere one!  :)

eta:  The winner has been drawn!  Congratulations to Laurel Seabrook! 

I hope that you have seen something you like so that you'll visit again soon!  Have a great weekend!
