Friends of Unity, November blog hop. Give Thanks



Welcome to the Friends of Unity blog hop, If your new here welcome I hope you enjoy.  If you've been here before thank you for coming back to visit.

  This month our theme is Giving Thanks.   Fitting for this month when we reflect on what we are Thankful for.

 I have a few projects to share.  So, lets get to it.

  The first two cards are very simple,  I cased this layout from my fellow hopper Alaine.   I am thankful for her and her cards.   I love Angie girls, I like to try to keep them whole because  they have lots of itty bitty bits around them.  This layout works well keeping the image full  and also allows you to use pattern paper.  I use this layout all the time.   It makes it really easy.  For the second card  I used November girl,  you can find her HERE! be sure to look at the line of Angie girls, and add to your wish list.  Unitys brown Thursday sale will be here very soon.   The word Gratitude is from the set Frondescence and the link for that is below.   For this first card I used Emerson girl, shes great for fall and winter cards.  You can find her HERE!







This next card is also very simple.   I wanted to show how you can make the sentiment shine.   For this one I used Frondescence you can find it HERE!  I colored the bottom half with copics then added a gina marie design die, to kinda frame the whole image.  I used the sentiment from Array of fall.   and you can find that one HERE!  I sprayed the whole thing with distress mica spray at the end.   added a few sequins.  I also distressed the edges of the frame and sentiment.    It's an easy way to add texture.

I hate long blog posts, so I am not gonna bore you to much longer, bare with me here.   I just want to say if your here and have not yet checked out the Unity facebook group called Unity show n tell, I suggest you do.   I have not been that connected to a group since the old two peas in a bucket.  The group is kind and friendly and there are many levels of talent there. So, go take a peek around share and enjoy,

I want to thank you for stopping by I am glad your here.  Don't forget to leave a comment as some girls do giveaways.  This month I am giving away one ITTY  BITTY.  Just a tiny gesture of thanks to you my readers.   I will announce my winner at next months hop.
