A Little Unity Love...

Hey everyone! Hope you're all keeping warm! We just got our first big snow of the season and school's out --- so I've got an extra boy at home who's a little stir crazy. :)

I was shopping at Joann's during Christmas break and found some of the cutest folksy ribbon! I'm such a sucker for anything 'folk'... and couldn't wait to try it out on a card. So... I paired it with one of my all-time favorite Unity sets - Folk Inspired. (The white eyelet trim was a Joann find too!)

Have you seen the latest Unity Kit of the Month?!? It's packed with such COOL images!

I had this ruby red, sparkly glitter lace from We R Memory Keepers' Merry & Bright line and... once again... was drawn to the 'folk' feel of it. I wish my camera could capture it better, because it's such a pretty product! I wanted to keep it simple, so I added one of my favorite sentiments from the KOM and glittered the heart to match.

For those of you who are card makers - Winter Sims is having a Valentine's card drive for the kids at St. Jude's. I'm a pediatric nurse at a children's hospital in Indianapolis & a mom of two little guys... so this project really touched me. I hope to make several kid friendly Valentines and mail them off to her. If you'd like to learn more about how YOU can participate, click on the picture below. :)
