{ Poppies } & Unity Blog Hop and Giveaway!

I am thrilled to be a part of Unity Stamp Co's blog hop this week! If you are following the hop, you just came from Unity's blog. It is truly an honour to be included with all the other lovely ladies of Unity :) - and the first at that! No pressure they told me, hehehe :) I must say I love their stamps, and have become quite addicted to them. Be sure to leave a comment on this post, and the other posts in the blog hop, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Unity Stamp Co. Winners will be announced on their blog on the weekend. 


My first greeting to share with you is based on the Unity Inspired challenge that is just about to end. It is based on this sketch:

I used stamps from the February Stamp Kit, Let Love Grow; from the April SMAK Kit, Celebrate The Good Times, and Itty Bitty stamp, Wishing You Joy. I stamped the poppies onto patterned paper and cut out and collaged them onto the card. The little wood veneer flower on the top corner was embossed with white embossing powder before being affixed.




I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine, Oreo is most definitely!




The silly kitty keeps darting outside, only to stop at this first step on our pathway and then starts rolling around in the dirt...and then wants back in. Oh lovely creature, hehe. :)

And, don't forget to leave a comment here, and on the rest of the blogs on the hop, for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Unity Stamps! There is always such lovely work on everyone else's blogs that you won't want to miss them!


Next up is Angie Blom's blog! :)
