Time for the Unity Hop!

 
     Time is zooming by and I need to get my cards finished.   I wanted to share a Christmas card I made to add to my stash. I will be loading this for the Friends with Flair/ Unity Hop for this week.  Please be sure to check out all of the great work, this weeks Unity sale and  get inspired.

     My card starts with a random piece of grey card stock.  Next, I added an embossed snowflake (from Darice) panel, which was inked with swipes of Pistachio Pudding and Smoky Slate inks.  There is a strip of green and a piece of mint green cotton lace.  The 2 Unity stamps are from grab bags I won, and are the deer and the poinsettia.  The deer is from a Unity set called Believe in Miracles, and I do believe the flower is from a KOM.  They were colored with Copic marker and the flowers were fussy cut.  The deer was cut out with a SB classic circle die.  Clear gems were scattered for sparkle.

     With Halloween behind us, Turkey Day fast approaching, and Christmas around the bend, I already feel like I can't breathe!  If I stick with making at least a card a day until Thanksgiving, I may be able to write them out on Black Friday!  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  Thanks for visiting!
