Unity Challenge Wednesday! Can I get a Hip Hop??????

Phew! I made it. This week has been absolutely crazy at work. You would think that with the gas shortage across the country that people would be happy to at least have regular gas. Not so. Nope- despite the shortage being on every news channel and radio station I have station owners questioning me as to why they can't get PREMIUM gas. Geesh! They should be happy they have gas at all! It's been an extremely rough week but I didn't let that stop me from making my Unity Challenge card.








This week's hostess is Maggie. She chose a really cool sketch for our challenge. This card is also my first chance to play with September's Kit of the Month. I do not know how Angela does it but she manages to make each kit better than the last!! Her designers and artists are awesome!! You can play along- just make a card using the layout above. You can still play even if you don't have Unity stamps. Just use the keyword USC6 when you upload to the gallery.

I'm keeping it short today since Wednesdays are my "half" day (only the company I work for would consider 8 hours a half day.....)at work, but you can be sure I will be hanging out in the Unity Forum on Thursday for Hip Hop! Please join us for prizes and most of all GOOD TIMES!!

Love the card, I'm so glad you managed to find time for crafting in between working so hard. I hope things get better soon. You never know, maybe next week someone will ring up to say "I just wanted to say thanks for doing your best during the shortage" ;)
