Today's the Day!

Happy Saturday to you!

Today I'm participating in the World Record Inspirational Unity Blog Hop (as if you wouldn't have guessed by the nice photo greeting -lol), and I hope you're having fun HoPping your way through all the way to the end of the line. There are a tremendous amount of talented stampers out there and Unity has TONS of stamps to inspire creativity -- put them together, and, well, it's a winning combination! ;D


Oh, and just in case you didn't arrive here following the parade, and you don't want to miss any of the FUN Unity goodness planned for you today, then click here to see where it all started!

Here's my contribution -- hope you like it {especially you, Jeanne}. ;) **ETA: The green cardstock really does coordinate with the green color of the image...the pic's just off and makes it look kinda gray -- sorry!**

I know you're in a hurry, so I'll keep this short and sweet and just tell you that I combined two of the fun stamps from Little Reminders (Unity's recent December Kit of the Month -- btw, I absolutely LOVE their KOMs!!!), to create the focal image of this card.

The sketch was one of Jen del Muro's SFYTTs...and I'm sure I'll be using it again -- it's one of my new favorites!

So how'd I do for keeping it short and sweet today? (I think this may be another World Record here today! lol)

If you check back tomorrow, I may have another Unity card for you...their stamps have been getting a lot of love from me lately!

Here's one (or two) of my favorite quotes:

"Make Today Count" (anonymous)

"Character is what you are when you think no one will see." (anonymous)

I hope you're enjoying the HOP so far. Your next stop on this FUN parade is HERE!

Thanks so much for the visit, have a wonderful day, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
