Friends of Unity December Blog Hop - Favorites

 Welcome to our December Blog Hop,  Friends! Our last Friends of Unity Hop for 2020. 

It is also our 3rd Anniversary since this Hop was created by some of the best crafty ladies I know! I am so blessed to be a part of this team! Crystal & Amber, thank you for creating a place for us to share our love for Unity Stamp Co products and for offering another incredible community of crafters and like minded friends!

 I was in such a slump last month that I put extra effort and heart into this months creations. 

Our cue for this month is My Favorite Things. I love so many stamps from Unity so I created several cards using some of my favorite images and sentiments!

Because I have sooo many favorites, this blog is longer than usual. I sure hope you will follow along, friends.😊

My first card was made using Beatrix Girl. She is my favorite Angie Girl and reminds me so much of ME! Especially when at our farmhouse in Arkansas.  

This is one of my all time favorite sentiments from a Tierra Jackson set called Unique.

Greens and browns are my favorite colors! Can you tell?! 

I so want this exact outfit!! 

This next card was made using my favorite coloring technique. Monochromatic coloring! Especially in shades of beige. I love this beautiful Angie Girl, as well! She is Emerson Girl.

The sentiment is another of my favorites from a Graciellie Design set called Difficult Roads.

Put a skirt on this beauty and I want this outfit, as well. You??

This 3rd card was made using my absolute favorite background stamp called A Faithful Letter. I'm loving this sentiment from the set One of those people. No coloring needed. ❤

In person you can see the background underneath the vellum much better. I used the picket fence Distress Ink on the background panel just under the sentiment so that it would be more legible. 
I love it. ❤

Every year in November and December I make my calendar cards. They have become my favorite gift to mail to family and friends. This stamp set by Graciellie called Difficult Roads has always been my absolute favorite to use on the calendar cards. And just recently she came out with a new cotton set called Simply Blessed. It is also beautiful! 

Btw, I have just a few extra 2021 calendars I won't get to if you would like a couple. Let me know!

The sentiments used on each of the calendar cards are from another Graciellie set called Hope and Strength. A truly beautiful set, friends. (The one with the stunning dragonflies.) 

Because each of these cards where quick to put together, I made them all in one day. Crazy huh! There was minimal coloring for the most part so it was quite easy. 😏

I would love to know which cards are your favorite!

I hope and pray you have a truly Merry & Blessed Christmas. Whether with family or alone, there is reason to celebrate as we remember the Saviors birth. And, if alone on Christmas, please reach out to me and I'll offer a word of encouragement and love. Here, or here . 💓

My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy when you do!

As always~
