Unity's FWF 12/7 - snow, snow, snow

So. YOU GUYS. I finished my race on Thanksgiving and that meant I could SHOP!!! So I shopped. I got envelopes. I ordered paper. And yes, I ordered STAMPS! Unity. Gotta love UNITY! The Snowflake kisses set was just calling my name... so I ordered it (no, that's not all, but you have other blogs to visit.) Those snowflakes are SO BIG! And SO unique! I love them. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
 
So, the Operation Write Home tutorial this week was one I've done before, for triple stamping. Snowflakes lend themself well to that so I made a pretty simple card:
 
Unity's Snowflake kisses
CTMH ink
 
Then I wanted to give the current Unity KOM sketch a try but as always, I started using non KOM stamps (DOH!!!) so after a false start, I came up with this:
Unity KOM Nov 2011; Dec 2011
Gina K navy paper, random silver paper (embossed with snowflake folder)
Twinery twine
SU not quite navy ink; Momento bahama blue ink
 
Thanks for visiting me today! I have a birthday party to prepare for on Sunday... my eldest turned 7 this week and lost her first tooth! It's been a big week. :)

  2. Jen, These snowflakes lend themselves perfectly to trip time stamping. Your cards are both lovely. You did a wonderful job on the KOM. Yes guess this was a big week, birthday and tooth all at once. Those are fun times.
