Unity FWF Blog Hop {Dec 3rd}

Hooray for Fridays and the Friends With Flair Blog Hop! Be sure to start at the Unity Blog for a full list of participants and don't forget to look for the blinkie and leave a comment on that blog for a chance to win 25 random Unity stamps. Thank you to all of you who stopped by yesterday for my first Hip Hop with the Unity and Ippity Design Teams. I appreciate all of your sweet comments!

For today's card, I started by creating a texty background with Giving It All Meaning. Then I stamped a row of flowers from the June Kit. The awesome tree is from the new December Kit - Just Be You! After cutting out the tree and deciding where it should go, I stamped the main sentiment, again from the June Kit. I love those big words! Then I attached the tree with dimensionals and added the rhinestones. I felt something was missing so I added some red squirrel washi tape along the bottom right underneath the flowers. Squirrels make me happy... and all this Unity makes me very happy! :D

Your next stop is Jennie Kader!

Hi there Emily, wonderful card, I just bought that very stamp, giving it all meaning words, bit of a coincidence, spooky. Love what you've done with it and your beautiful tree. The word 'today' is pretty yummy too, the whole card has a real caring feel, simply great:0) xx
