I turned my card on the side to compensate for the image I used. I knew when I opened this paper I HAD to use this stamp. It is Sleigh Ride from Unity. The only way to use it was to flip the sketch. I also added a circle element for my sentiment. But the basics of the sketch are the same- the tilted rectangle and 3 embellishments on the corner.

There are just too many red flags where Obama is concerned. He has associated himself with questionable people such as William Ayers and now evidence of an association with Rashid Khalidi has surfaced. And what about his former pastor? He was friends and followed him for years but denounced him while he was campaigning for the Democratic nomination.
You can certainly make your own decision tomorrow and that is why our country is so great. The question marks surrounding Obama however make only one choice an option for my vote- McCain-Palin.
Have a Happy and SAFE Election Day.

I have a Hip Hop Hangover (even though I left early I reall think I DO have a hangover from it...Ah!) so I used this image from Unity. It is Joy Words. You can buy it as part of a set or as a single.
I also decided to try watercoloring. I used to do it a lot but haven't lately so I am quite a bit rusty on this technique. I think I threw about 7 or 8 attempts in the trash before this one finally took (somewhat). I also got to play with Liquid Applique for the first time. How fun!!
I would love for you to play along with our challenge. Just link your card on one of our blogs and if you upload to SCS use keyword FFC8. Thanks for stopping by today- I hope to have more stampy goodness for you once I get some energy. :) Maybe tomorrow!

Today I wanted to share the card I made Sunday evening for Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge. This week Unity is sponsoring the sketch and it is a really good one. Of course I had to play along!
I made really girly card for this challenge with Unity's Hey Chick set.- I love this stamp set and you can really bling the image up. I used Black Diamond Stickles to jazz up my chick. I think I am going to send this card to someone who LOVES pink. ;) Thanks for stopping by today- I hope your week is off to a great start!
Stamps: Unity Hey Chick
Paper: SU- Basic Black, Shimmery White: K&C DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Black Satin Ribbon, Nestabilites, SU Photo Corner Punch, Primas, Black Button

For something clear I decided to try something new- stamping on acetate. Ribbon is easy for me- I love it and put it on almost every card so I chose my Riding Hood Red Taffeta. My latest Unity Shipment was my Kit Of the Month- Thinking about the Good Times.
My card is a 4 1/4" square card since the images from this kit are a little smaller than most Unity images. I stamped the flourishes from the KOTM on a 3x3 white CS square in Riding Hood Red and Pink Pirouette. Then I stamped the Sentiment: "We are the Music Makers & We are the Charmers of Charms" with black Stazon onto my 3x3 Acetate square and attached it to my card stock layers with pewter brads. I added my ribbon to my base then added some primas and voila! My card is done. I had a hard time getting a good picture of the card it looks better IRL.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other Unity Challenge Junkies' blogs (see sidebar) and feel free to play along. Just use keyword USC09 when uploading your card to Splitcoast so we can find your card! Happy Wednesday!!
