Received my Unity KOM today!!!!!!

After a slight delay, I received this month's Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the Month!!! It got here only two days after being shipped out, woohoo!! Today is the day my favourite challenge at SCS, the Inspiration Challenge, releases new challenges, so I made my challenge card using my new stamps of course. :D I used Room 13 as my inspiration, and took a cue from the little description for that room and used white to balance the green colour scheme and strong visual impact of the swirly pinwheel background. I love these images, and wanted to let them take centre stage.

Stamps: swirly pinwheel, polka-dotted scallop border, and giggle grove of trees from Unity's September stamp kit of the month. "hello" from a Hero Arts clear stamp set.

Paper: white cardstock by Domtar, white card base by Halcraft.

Ink: Ranger Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters, Versamagic chalk ink in Aloe Vera

Other: Prismacolor pencil crayons to colour in the leafy bits of the trees.

My other major achievements of today are:
  • I ***finally*** got to the post office to mail off my Dad's birthday card (his bday is at the beginning of AUGUST!) and a parcel of altered mailboxes to my sister's family. They've been sitting in my craft room for a couple of weeks now and with my husband's help, I finally got it together enough to make it to the PO today.
  • Finished up two other cards that basically just needed to be assembled.
