Keeping Me Hoppin'

Wow! I can't believe it's Thursday already! These Unity girls have been keeping me hopping... but I've loved every minute of it. I'm glad you've found your way to my blog! I'll post the next spot on the Blog Hop at the bottom of this post. :)

First up, I wanted to show you a little card I made featuring one of the sentiments from the new Birdie Inspiration set. Honestly, seeing this sentiment was what initially 'sold' me on this set... and I knew I had to have it! My life is in a place right now where I have to remember that God is at work in my life... even when I can't see what He's up to. :) (Daniel 10: 10-14)

Below is a card I made using this fun & funky tree from Unity's April KOM (Fresh Beginnings). I stamped the image initially onto patterned paper and cut out each branch to paper piece it onto my card front. I wish it wasn't so cloudy here today b/c I can't get a good photo... but I really loved how the colors turned out irl. The green is a very retro, yellow-green... and I love pairing it with black and deep orange-red. Yum-O! :)

And, finally... I've been having a lot of fun working with fabric again... so I decided to make a coordinating potholder to go with the card above. :) I don't have great sewing skills.... so thankfully, these are SUPER easy to make!

I can't wait to see what AWESOME Unity Specials are going on today! :) Make sure to make your way to the next spot on the hop:
