Falling Leaves

Another month, another Unity challenge. I totally need these, it's the only way I get my rubber inky!! I love that all the challenges get you using different stamps.

For this card, I stamped the leaves in versamark and then coloured them in with chalk. I *love* this technique! The "thankful" is embossed. I just love that stamp!

Have a great week!

Sometimes...the smallest things...

take up the most room in your heart. ~Winnie the Pooh My little DD when she was several months old. It's kind of ironic because she's REALLY tall now.. she is the tallest 3rd grader in her class and she's a foot taller than a lot of the kids!

I used the Unity Sketch to make a layout. It's not easy to turn a card sketch into a layout. :) If you look at the flower I used the little heart pins stamps from the September 2009 kit of the month. Sorry, about the colours, my scanner did not like!! I tried to correct as much as possible but that's the best I could do!

Just need a place to park..

I have these Unity stamps for trade from the recent grab bag:

Unity August Challenge

You know what I love about the Unity challenges?? It gets me using my Unity stamps AND using up scraps! :) Just what I needed to get back into the swing of things!

I *struggled* with this card! This is the first time I did an actual stamped paper piecing. I've stamped on pp before but never really cut out small details. :) My fingers are just too chubby and I have no patience! lol

The theme was *Back to School* I used a schoolhouse and the quote from a previous KOTM. I'll be passing this card on to a friend of mine who is a single mom, 29 years old and going back to University full time for her education degree!!! So proud of her and this quote was PERFECT!

The little branch is from a sizzix die. My kids actually punched it out while they were playing with it and I never thought there'd be a use for an orange branch...but since I never actually used the die myself (blush) I thought it was too cute to throw out! Ahh..there's always a use for something, no?
