Unity's FWF 1/4/13 - happy thoughts

Hey there! I wasn't sure I'd have time to link up to Unity's Friends with Flair today... it was a busy, busy day - but now the kids are with Grandma & Grandpa and the hubs and I are about to head out for date night. :)  Just enough time to make a card! 

I always try to beef up my 'general card stash' at the beginning of the year with several thank yous, birthday cards, and a couple of blank ones. I went to grab birthday cards yesterday and realized I only had ONE made. OOPS. So here's a pretty simple one, and the sentiment is vague enough that you could easily use it for something else as well. :) 

Basic Grey - Eva; Gina K cardstock
Unity's Feel the Joy and unk sentiment
pearls from stash, TH inks in victorian velvet, walnut stain, antique linen
On a related note, my husband bought me Unity for Christmas!! He checked all of my Facebook comments and then my stash (yay for organization, right??) and then bought some things he thought I'd like. I got all new-to-me stuff and he did a great job - AND he complimented Unity on their selection!! :)

Have a great weekend!
