FWF 8/9... a cozy christmas

So seriously, at Christmas last year my husband ordered me Unity Stamps! He was even impressed with the seriously large selection of different styles. :) This stamp is one of my favorites from one of the kits he got me... it's got such a cool retro vibe AND it's a really generic sentiment. I LOVE sentiment stamps and if I can use them for a season, not just a specific day, well my heart gets all happy! It pairs really nicely with this MME paper, which I am going to use up this holiday season. 

I AM. You should see my stack of 6x6's. It's kind of embarrassing.

Okay, so the card. Usually I look for a sketch or have an idea to jump start a card. This time I just kind of took some ideas and went with it to see what I got.

I think I like it. 

Pay no mind to the oddly large card prop, which is making the bottom look all bowed. It's not.

Be sure to head back to the Unity blog and check out everyone's projects. There's always so many stamps I want need to buy (and thankfully, a sale too!). :)

  16. Great card! I have to admit a couple of things, though... (1) you have a seriously awesome hubby if he's actually buying you Unity Stamps - he's a keeper! (2) I'll bet I have WAYYYY more 6x6 pads than you - and yes, I'm embarrassed about that, too! Thanks for the inspiration! :)
