Happy Friday!

Hello blogger friends! I must say I haven't got to post as much on my blog lately that I'd like too. My new job has me gone most of the day, and the summer has me outside alot when I am home. So in the early morning I read everyone's blogs, and do a little crafting. I made this card yesterday, and posting today to 2 blogs. First up is the All Things Unity Challenge blog here. You are to use twine on your project. I made this background awhile ago, and was experimenting with different inks to make it stamp correctly. It has a mostly solid surface, so pigment ink worked best. It is Colorbox chalk ink. And decided to use it on this card. I love the teal color, and the card base is Coordinations paper that I sanded the edges to show the white core. I used white pigment ink on this Ippity stamp, and love the soft look. The sentiment is from the How You Doin Ippity set that I stamped to match the paper color. And added some Pink Paislee twine. I am also linking this to the Unity blog for Friends with Flair Friday here. They have a cute Margarita stamp set today on sale for only $5.00 if you want to check that out! Thanks for looking in today!
