HHH time!!!!

This giveaway is now closed.....

It's Friday!!! Are you hungover from the Hip Hop yesterday???? It was a ton of fun, as usual, hanging with all my Unity peeps! And there are some seriously spectacular deals this week too!!! Free stamp, Unity's choice, for ever $10 spent....free shipping with any order over $20....the past August KOM is on sale for $30....and a bunch of stamps are 40% off!!!!! Hurry....go shopping!!!! Then come back and tell me what you got!!!! ;-)

I have 2 cards....and a little candy...to share with you today! The first card I created for the Unity Colors my World challenge. We were to use the colors found on a globe on our card; blue, green, and a neutral....brown is considered a neutral.
I used the set "Lily Pad Playland" and "Distressed Dots". The dots were stamped once in Old Olive, then in Night of Navy. The cattails were stamped in Chocolate Chip on Naturals Ivory CS. I distressed and sewed around the edge of the background panel.

The 2nd card is for the Almost Birthday challenge. We were to create a birthday card without a typical birthday image....like a cupcake or candle or gift....but any phrase was allowed.
The flowers are from the "Flower Fantastical" set, and the phrase is from "Love in the Air". It was a super simple and really quick card to put together. The flowers are colored with Prismacolor pencils and markers. I added a bit of paper piercing and some ribbon at the top to finish it off.
Now, since I've had so many wonderful opportunities come my way recently....the Stampin' Success article published, the feature on Unity's blog, my DT positions, and I've reached over 60 followers here on my blog!!!! I want to spread the wealth!!! With a little Unity blog candy!!!!
I'm giving away the complete "Rain and Flowers" set, "Just Be" and "Create Yourself" singles. All you have to do is leave me a comment here and spread the word on your blog. If you're a follower you can leave me 2 comments! I'll pick a random winner Sunday night at 10pm eastern.

Happy Stamping!!
Shannon
