Unity Challenge Wednesday- and some Extra Eye Candy

I will apologize in advance for my blog post. I have just finished working a 12 hour shift plus on-call (that's the "working" part of my blog...yuck!) and I am exhausted. I might not make total sense today, but I am very excited to share this week's creations with you.

It's Wednesday again and it's time to get ready for Hip Hop Thursday in the Unity Forum on SCS. What better way to do that than to participate in Wednesday's Unity Challenge. This week it was Latisha's turn to host and pick the challenge and she chose a Sketch Challenge. It is a great layout perfect for many different kinds of card and many images.

The sketch is a square card with panel on the lower half. The main image is a square with a scalloped border on one side. Here is my card:

I made this card as a going away card for our mechanic at work. He is transferring to a different terminal. We will miss him- he's a really nice guy and a good mechanic too. :)

If you want to play along, just use your Unity stamps and make a card with the same layout. Then upload your card onto SCS using keyword USC3. Be sure to check out the other Unity Challenge Girls' blogs for more eye candy. You won't want to miss their challenge cards! Then be sure to hang out with us on Thursday for a blog hop of all the DT members, prizes and chatting with everyone.

Stamps: Unity Remember Happiness

Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Creamy Caramel, White, DSP

Ink: Brown Stazon, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel

Accessories: Aged Copper Brads, SU Scallop Border Punch

Next I have a card that I made just because I wanted to. I got this idea in my head and couldn't get rid of it. It is not my "normal style" but I think that's why I like it. I am trying to get out of my stamping rut. Just so you know- that is all Faux-stitching. I do not, cannot and will not sew. I wish I could and I love cards that have real stitching on it, but I am challenged in the sewing department. I cut out each tree from Tiny Trinity and popped them up on dimensionals. I also accented them with crystal effects. One reason is because they look prettier, the other is so that when it dries it will make the trees a little sturdier.

Stamps: Unity Tiny Trinity

Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, Hawaii Papaya DSP, White

Ink: Brown Stazon, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss

Accessories: Wide Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Crystal Effects, Oval Punch, Sponges, Paper-Piercing tool
