Growing In Unity with a SSW Sketch

I know that my Unity Friends are aware that on Thursdays we get to have the Unity DT blog hop, and on Friday's we have the Friends with Flair blog hop, but did you know that Wednesdays can be really sweet too?

For me and hopefully for you now too, Wednesday's mean that it is time for a release of a new card making sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday! The creator of these sketches, Arlana, who happens to be a Unity fan also, makes some really sweet sketches. Many of the weeks are sponsored and have prizes to be given away. So I hope you will try and play along with us in the future! Just stop by the SSW blog and check out more details.


We are up to SSW Sketch # 21 this week and here is a picture of it...





This week's sketch also incorporates a color challenge, but we were also free to use Halloween colors since this is the last week before Halloween.



As you can see, I chose to use Halloween colors for my card...

That adorable Frankie image is from the Unity stamp set called Little Monsters, the sentiment comes from the Hauntingly Sweet set and the cute spiders are in the set called Unlucky 13.

I used my Copic markers to color Frankie in and cheated a little by using this great DP from Recollections that helped me create the scene you see on the right side panel without having to go to a lot of extra work.

The three bat brads are from Recollections and are so cute because they have a little flocking on them! I should be about finished with my Halloween cards now and plan on getting them in the mail today!!

You may have read some hints of mine about leaving some comments on my blog this week. On Friday when my week of Growing in Unity is over, I will be choosing one person to win a random grab bag of Unity stamps just for leaving comments on my posts throughout the week. Please only comment once per day. For each comment you make you will have a chance to win the stamps. Good Luck!!

Two more things...

I have a project to share with you on the Sweet N Sassy Stamps blog where I was Guest Designer for the month of October. Click HERE to check out that post!

Also, today I am the sponsor for a card challenge over at Paper Craft Planet in the Whimsie Doodles Group. Click HERE to go to PCP and then just join the Whimsie Doodles group if you want to play along!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with goodness!
