Growing in Unity- FWF Friday

Happy Friday Ya'll!! I am stuck at work and have to make this very short and sweet!! I hope you are on the Blog Hop for Friends with Flair Friday and are enjoying all your stops visiting the blogs of sweet Unity Fans!!

Don't forget to leave a comment here today! I will be picking one winner from all the comments left on my blog during my time of Growing in Unity this week. The winner will be receiving a grab bag of Unity stamps. I will close the comments down by morning and will announce my winner tomorrow!!

Good Luck and thanks for visiting me all week!!

My card today combines three Christmas stamps, Cosmo Cricket paper and some beautiful red velvet paper to make this Christmas card. The ribbon is from DCWV and I also used a MS border punch.

I am showing you this angle so you can see that the snowman was embossed in silver.

Do you see how perfectly that winter wonderland circle frame fits around the snowman's shape? And don't you just love the Swirly Christmas sentiment in the panel underneath the snowman? Oh so cute! Slowly but surely I am tackling my Christmas cards this year! Maybe I will have them in the mail before December 20th this year! LOL!

The Unity stamps I used are:

Snowman: October Stampin Store Kit
Winter Wonderland circle border: Bright & Merry Winter Wishes set
We Wish You Swirly: Bright & Merry Winter Wishes set



The green paper under the Snowman is from CutCardstock.com and is the neatest shimmery paper that is so beautiful in person. It is called Stardream paper and you can find a multi-colored sampler HERE.
Have a wonderful Friday and may your bucket overflow today with lots of yummy Unity Eye Candy!!
