{be inspired} with Unity Thursday

Hi everyone!!
It's that time again....YAY!!


I chose to play along with the color challenge this month.


I am not much of a Halloween fan, so i decided to use the color inspiration in a masculine card instead....
I was sorting a bunch of papers the other day and came across this oldie from My Mind's Eye - the stars were a perfect match, so I knew right away I was going to use it for my card.
Here's how it turned out:


Not sure why, but masculine cards are always such a challenge for me....I really have to go out of my way and make a point to make them....but I usually end up loving the result.
Hmmm....maybe that means I need to do it more often?
I am thankful that the color challenge got me in the mode!!

Be sure to play along with us this month....all the details are here.
Its a great way to {be inspired}...... and of course, there are prizes!!

I also created a card with this cutie.....
I seriously LOVE my {stamp of the week}'s...



So that's it....
'Guess that means its time to get back to the hop.....

This week we have TWO amazing Unity filled PRIZE PACKAGES to give away.



Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.

Here's a list of all the pretty faces in today's blog hop:

Keeping Cool with Unity

Hi everyone!!

Welcome to another Unity Thursday!

Hot summer days and I have been hanging out in my air conditioning...tsk, tsk, I know...
BUT I can't help it....I am just not a sun goddess...
I have done some camping and fishing. I DO love the outdoors...just not this heat!
Hope you are all finding an oasis or a pleasant way to beat the heat?!

Anyways...good thing one of my favorite things to do happens to be an "indoor" hobby...
CARDMAKING....it really never gets old for me. NEVER.

Here are my happy creations this week...



I created this card with the July KOM


A couple of weeks ago I shared a card similar to this one using the same stamp set....BUT my guy asked if I would make another one for his mama's birthday...
he even picked out the colors this time (which are similar to the other card)...
I am loving how fun this background stamp is using distress inks, a spray bottle of water, and watercolor paper....so, so easy but the way it turns out....LOVE IT!





This week we have TWO amazing Unity filled PRIZE PACKAGES to give away.


I am SO jealous of this week's prize!!! I seriously have an addiction to the {itty bitty} stamps!
I hope whoever wins loves them as much as I do....

And with all the "indoor" weather around here, I had time to play along.
I used the color inspiration to create a couple cards:

Many Wishes



On the first card, I also used the new sentiment kit {hello thank you}
