{BYSHC} Spring into Christmas 2023 Linky Party


I barely need a reason to bring out this beautiful Unity Stamp Co image. I paired it with the Vintage Ledger Background to create this sweet simple card for the Linky Party. 

I have to admit, I do struggle to create holiday cards all year, but I know it’ll pay off when the time comes 🙂

Friends of Unity Blog Hop-April 2023

I’m so excited to be joining the Friends of Unity Blog Hop this month!  It’s been a minute since I blogged so bear with me while I dust things off 😉 Our April theme is butterflies. Who knew I had so many sets which include butterflies? Naturally I couldn’t pick just one, so I went with many. Unity is like that—great designs, great sales—you can’t stop with just one!

My first card, above, features the set Moment by Moment.  I used the Rectified Poppies Background to create a subtle impression behind the focal image.  It’s a bit hard to see in the photo, but a great finishing touch to include, especially for the shabby chic look.

I wanted to keep with the vintage look for my second card.  I started by stamping the floral image from Like A Lotus and then masking it off.  Next, I used distress ink to stamp the Vintage Ledger image which I lightly added water with my finger tip in places to spread the ink and create an aged look.  The butterfly and sentiment are from a set called Faith which, sadly, I just realized is now retired 🙁

My third project is a Faith-dex card featuring Moment by Moment and Trust in the Lord

Finally, my fourth project features Funky Flowers, Flutters and Prayers and Dreams Take You.
