Inspirational Blog Hop with Unity!


Wowie!! Today's the day for the BIGGEST blog hop I've ever seen. I think there were 215 blogs at last count. That's a lot of people who love Unity and who decided to play along this morning. We've been gearing up, but even so, it still kind of snuck up on me. Where on earth has this month gone? Never mind - we're not going there today!

If you didn't start with Angela, go here first!

Okay, I'm supposed to keep this short and sweet, as there are so many blogs involved.

First - my quote. I've been using this as my email signature, and I really like it.

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
- Joseph Chilton Pearce


This card is for my god-daughter, Piper, who turns six this month. She is a tow-headed little cutie that I don't get to see nearly enough. Deets will be at the end of the post.
Deets:
All Stamps from the Unity Stamp Company:
inside cupcake and cherry - Sweet Yummy Cupcakes
Front cupcake - Big Polka Dot Cupcake
Sentiment - Love is in the Air
Paper: aMuse square notecard in Fairy Dust

Etc: Embossing powder - clear and detail silver

Now hop on over to the most fabulous Erin McKinney and enjoy the rest of today's blog hop. I hope you find lots to be enspired by.
