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?

Cool card and the quote is so appropriate for your friend!! I don't know what I am going to do with the tag. I thought about sending it to my granddaughter but then didn't think it was girly enough. Do you want it?!! :)
