HOP and CHAT with UNITY

Good evening everyone and WELCOME to this week's HOP with UNITY.
 
The focus this week is on HOLIDAYS!  We all know that the busiest time of year for cardmakers (like me!) is just around the corner.  We're hoping to give you some inspiration to get those creative juices flowing for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and EEK! Christmas.  Just remember, we're not the first.  Hobby Lobby has had their Christmas stuff out since right after the 4th of July!


 
So here's what I have for you today.
 GOSH!  These moose are just so adorable!




 


I also have one other card featuring a non-holiday new release.  Though it's not really for a holiday, I just love this little gangster bird with one big attitude.


 
 
Remember that we're also having our Facebook Happy Hour CHAT tonight.
 
And don't forget to visit all the blogs in the HOP (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win one of two fabulous Unity prize packages.  Simply follow along with the sweet faces below.

NEW Unity HOP!

Hello there everyone, and WELCOME to the brand new Tuesday HOP and HAPPY HOUR with Unity.
 
I've been gone such a long time due to lots of changes in my life (my Father passed away almost 6 weeks ago) and I'm greeted by a HUGE shake up at Unity, starting with moving the HOP to Tuesday nights.  There will be other changes coming, but one thing at a time...LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!
 
There are a ton of new releases tonight and since everyone who is able to hop is doing so this week, you'll see lots of inspiration from the team's varying styles.
 
First up I've got a new itty-bitty by Angie Blom...Struggle and Strength
 
 
 
Next, I've used the new kit from both Lisa Arana and Angie Blom...Loving Today
 
 
Now for the rest of the story...
 
Be sure to visit the Unity Facebook page and chat it up with Angela and some of the design team.  There will be 2 main threads, one for CHAT and one for NEW RELEASE samples.  Look for the banners shown below and join in the fun.  We want to answer any questions you might have and we want you to participate.  Let's  make Unity even bigger and better than it already is (it is pretty darn special right now!).
 

 
Last, but certainly not least...complete the hop and then go SHOP!

Trust me when I say that there is something for everyone this week.
 
I was so excited to see some of the new kits, that I have three (count them, 1...2...3!) cards for you today.
 
The first one features one of the three new Angie Girls - Jolande.  She is named for our very own DT member Jolande who has made a career out of the military in the Netherlands.



Next up is another in the series of Angie Blom's Whimsy girls. Isn't Bella CUTE?



Last, but certainly not least is a kit from Joslyn Nielson called She Used to Care.  Aren't those sentiments fabulous?
 
 
(YES!, that's my card on the banner.)

HIP HOP

Time for another Unity HOP!

Before I start, please let me say Happy Memorial Day (or, if you're old school...Happy Decoration Day!) to everyone viewing this from the states.

I LOVE patriotic holidays.  My hubby (a veteran himself) is usually glued to old war movies on TV (the ones he knows all the dialog to!!!) so I get lots of time to play.

Fortunately, I get to show you one of this week's new kits.  These came together so fast.  I just love when that happens.  The kit is called Stars & Stripes Forever and here it is along with what I came up with.


 
 
This weekend typically starts the summer season here in the USA, so we're keeping it simple with a few new releases and an awesome sale.
 
 
Remember, we have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Monday night on the Unity blog.
 
 
Now use the pretty faces below to link to the other blogs and then go shop.

Unity Hip Hop

 
May already???  The beginning of the month always means a brand new KOTM at Unity and my card today features just that.  It's a simple card with a die-cut background that features one image and one sentiment from this month's kit.  One color of distress ink and a few pearls on the dress and viola! I was done.
 
 
Here's the full kit.
 
 
Now for the fun stuff...what's happening at Unity this weekend?  After 2 weeks of our 7th birthday sale, we'll keep it simple this week.  BTW...you know when we do this, next week will be something awesome.

Thanks for visiting me.  Just keep on with the rest of the team and then go shop.  There's bound to be something on sale that you can't live without!
