My Friday Unity Post


      Another Friday has arrived and I am here to post  a little something for the Unity Friend with Flair linky party.
     I would like to share a little sign I created for my desk.  It is to remind me to stop, and look around me.  Everything I stamped is from the Stampin Store Kit called Moments in Bloom & Naturally You.

     I started with a kraft panel, and added a stand-up flap on the back.  The background was stamped using the ledger and fern stamps from the kit using Memento Rich Cocoa, and Versa Magic Olive.  I stamped on my sentiment, and added a horizontal panel with the Beauty definition stamp (also in the kit).  Stitched ribbon, Prima Flowers, Gemstones for centers, and strips of Basic Grey's Picadilly paper were used to finish.  The back of the sign was also fitted with the BG papers to give it a clean look.

    Thanks for visiting, and have a wonderful weekend!  Please be sure to check out what all the other Unity Friends have been up to this week!

Mary Anne, how wonderful that you created something for you. I get caught up in cards and things for others, but why have all of these beautiful things around us and not have anything for just us. I hope to create a couple of canvases for my guest room when we get finished remodeling.
Have a day full of beauty....

What a nice reminder for yourself! And so pretty. I need a sign like that too, because I spend far too much time staring at workflow diagrams, emails, and other work stuff!

What a fabulous idea to remind yourself what life is all about! I've pinned a lot of those life-changing quotes over on Pinterest, but I never thought to make them into something I can look at and remind myself about on a daily basis! Great idea, great creation my friend! Life really is beautiful in spite of the ups and downs :)
