Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop - Celebrate Friendship

Welcome to Julie's Blogoversary Hop, my friend Julie is having a one year anniversary for on her blog and decided a hop would be a great way to celebrate.  You should have arrived here from Karen's blog, if you just stumbled on this start at the beginning at Julie's blog. The theme for this hop is friendship, which was a hard one for me because I don't normally make "friend" type cards.  I wanted to use Unity Stamps for this (I am becoming addicted but they are awesome) and I didn't have any stamps that fit the theme for a layout so cards it was.

I am also using these cards for the new Unity Challenge and its based on the sketch below.  I made this card using mostly grab bag stamps I won in a Friends with Flair contest and the butterflies were EP Be Mine.  The colors are not ones I normally would use but they had an inspiration picture and while this is not my entry for that challenge I loved the colors so much I carried them over to the card sketch which is unusual for me since these are not my usual colors.








Blog Candy !!!
