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?!
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.
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. ❤
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!
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!
Be sure to start at the top for any you may have missed!
Forgive any grammar mistakes you may find. However, I am always open to friendly and constructive criticism or correction. Please know, I write my blog out of absolute enjoyment and do not stress overlooked errors. Thank you, friends!

Fab showcase of your faves. My fave is the third card using Faithful Letter, love the simple elegance of your design. It's such a clever idea to include a calendar with a card, it's sure to be appreciated by the recipient and can be enjoyed all year long. Thank you for sharing your creative cards!ReplyDelete
All of your cards are so pretty! If I had to pick my favorite it would be Emerson Girl (love those AngieGirls!!) and the monochromatic coloring you used. The simple beauty of A Faithful Letter is just lovely.ReplyDelete
What absolutely wonderful cards! The Angie girl cards are great encouragement cards... I love your soft core. The Faithful Letter card is stunning in its simplicity, and I always love your calendars. They inspired me 3 years ago to do the same. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Wilma! So so happy to hear they inspired you!Delete
I love all that you made but your Vellum card and the calendar are my two favorites. I often thought of trying to get those small 2021 calendars and making those for gifts. Maybe next year I'll get on the ball and start earlier LOL. Thank you for inspiring.ReplyDelete
Happy Anniversary! Beautiful cards, amazing coloring, and wonderful designs. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Holidays!ReplyDelete
My "beautiful and Unique..." special lady card watches over me every day...and I cherish her so much. Now my dear...if this is a slump finale I truly believe you should schedule a slump once a month at least!! These cards are spectacular and I must remind you that you have an incredible talent!! .Quick? Holy moly ONE DAY? these creations are spiritual beauty, stunning! Love the backgrounds, they come so easy to you. Yes I can see you wearing Beatrix girls "uniquely beautiful" outfit. Think of you often and continue to smile with your kindness!ReplyDelete
Oopsie, got wrapped up with all the pretty and forgot to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed Healthy New Year! Happy Anniversary too! (((Hugs)))Delete
I understand what you mean about being in a creative slump. I thought that I would be a creative tornado with all the shut down orders but instead found myself struggling. I'm glad that you are feeling more inspired, and it shows. All of the cards are beautiful but the calendar ones especially caught my fancy. I love the sentiments and simple designs so much. Have a wonderful holiday season and stay well.ReplyDelete
I love all your cards but Beatrix Girl is so comfy and warm that I'm going to pick her as a favorite. I love the green and brown color combo and her wooly poncho!ReplyDelete
Your cards are wonderful and inspiring!!ReplyDelete
Your cards are beautiful. I love your coloring of your Angie girls. Thanks for sharing your talents.ReplyDelete
I love the way you colored in the girl STAMPS.ReplyDelete
