Friends of Unity September Blog Hop ~ Color Challenge

 Welcome, friends! 

And welcome to our September FOU (Friends of Unity) Blog Hop

September means we are soooo close to Fall. Ahh how I wish that meant cooler temps in Texas.

 Regardless, I am blessed and thankful for this season!

This months cue is a beautiful Color Challenge

This months hop is interactive! We invite you to play along with us! Use the color scheme below and post to our Challenge album in the Unity Show & Tell group.  Also, be sure to TAG ME and use the hashtag #friendsofunitybloghop when you post to your social media. I'll pick a separate winner to send a small prize pack! Excited to see your makes!

This was indeed a challenge for me as (though I have tons of it) I never use kraft paper! After several fails, and persistent determination, I made 2 cards I absolutely love!

 Now more than ever I want to remind others how grateful I am for their presence in my life.  My first card uses a sentiment that helps me express this, It's from the September 2021 Sentiment Kit

I plan to keep this senti stamp out as it has become a favorite. I have a bowl of favorite senti stamps on my desk for easy access!

The bottom panel of both cards were die cut using Scalloped Stitched Rectangles by Gina Marie Designs. I wish I could recall who the leaf dies are by, but unfortunately they were not in the original packaging.

 Did you happen to notice the subtle embossed trees on the top panel?? I just adore this embossing folder by Darice called Dotted Trees!

This next card uses an old favorite of mine. This beautifully designed coffee cup by Angie called Flutters to Go. I love using this image when gifting a Starbucks gift card. The green on the butterflies is Zigs Mid Green. It mimics the color sage so well. The sentiment is from the June 2021 Sentiment Kit

I used just a hint of my beige Zig brush pen to add a bit of faux kraft color to the coffee cup. I just love the softness of the three colors together. I sure hope you play along!

The embossed panel is from a Cuttlebug folder called Forest. I forget about my embossing folders! Do you? They add such a wonderful element to my cards!

always like to know which card is your favorite!! Mine is definitely the one with the leaves. It is just so clean and classy!

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

As always~

Thanks for spending time with me today!

If I may, I'd love to invite you to follow my blog.
There is a "follow" button up a bit and to the right. --->
Not the follow by email, it's up just a bit from it. Thank you so much!

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!
