Unity FWF 5/4 - my hero; Ippity Chicks #29

Happy Friday! It's been a couple of weeks since I've had a chance to link up with FWF over at the Unity blog (go there and check out the sale items plus the cool projects - you won't be disappointed!!). Today I am sneaking a few (okay, 30) minutes from my long list of to-do's to link up a card. :)


This is the sketch for the Ippity Chicks blog this week. I messed it up just a little to make this card, which I think will be perfect for an AnyHero note for my next box of cards to Operation Write Home (got extra non-glittery blank cards? head over there and learn how you can help troops keep in touch with home). 






























Unity's Unity in America set; K&Co patriotic paper stack
Inks: Tim Holtz antique linen and tea dye; SU not quite navy


Thanks for looking at my card - hop back to the Unity blog and check  out the others!
