Unity Blog Hop

Hi all,

Thanks for joining me today, you've either hopped from Teresa's blog or stumbled across me on the web but however you've gotten here let's get started with my blog hop post for Unity Stamps. I'm using one of the gorgeous Angie girls to make my card - Shari Girl. Plus I have also used stamps from the February 2017 KOTM - Unexpected Places.  Here is my card:
and some close ups:


I have also created a process video for your enjoyment (well I hope you enjoy it anyway!).

Please follow the hop and leave nice comments along the way for your chance to win a great prize from Unity Stamps.

                                     
The order for the hop is as follows, and from me please hop along to Sandra.

  4. The card is great. I am in the process of trying mixed media on scrapbooking also and have had layouts that I did not like. That is a great way to use the not quite right pieces. Thanks for the inspiration.
