For the Record

Happy November!  October is probably my favorite month of the year so I'm a little sad to see it come to an end.  It sure was busy and mostly fun, fun, fun but I am actually looking forward to some slower and more relaxing days in November.
Hopefully all of you and your friends and family on the east coast made it through the storm safely.   We have family in NYC and Philly and were very relieved to hear from them afterwards.  Here in Michigan we had 50mph gusts of wind hitting our house and I can't even imagine how bad it was out on the coast.

Oh yeah, I do have cards to share today too!  Happy Friday and Friends with Flair!  I just love Unity Stamps and they have the most amazing background stamps.  Sadly mine don't get inked up as much as I'd like but I got to a few of them this week.  :)

On my first card I used NO patterned paper whatsoever!

For this one I used Poppy Chevron and Distressed Hearts.  The sentiment is from Love Survives Everything.  I masked it and stamped the distressed hearts over it.  The heart is popped up by 2 other folded hearts.  For the Record is from the Simple Pointers Itty Bitty.

For my next card  I used Unity's lovely Woodgrain Script background stamped in Worn Lipstick distress ink.  I was inspired by the design and colors of Corri Garza's Brave Girl card here and Karen Maldonado's acetate butterfly here.  The butterfly stamp is from Moment By Moment.  The sentiments are both from Unity's Empowered Words.  The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye.




Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

I think the background stamps that show up each month in the kit, have to be my favorites. Now that I see how you used them so wonderfully, I must get them out and play more.
