DARE to get back into the groove?...

Whew!  I SWEAR I am still reeling in all the CHA excitement of last week and needed to relax, re-coop and get reacquainted with my stamp loft before we became TOTAL strangers, LOL!

Thankfully, my darling son Jacky whipped up an AWESOME sketch for this week's Diedrich Dare and it made getting crafty a little less daring, little more delightful!

Here is DDSC21 as designed by the ever so sweet and talented Jack-man:

Also, I got to play with the BRAND NEW KIT OF THE MONTH for February from UNITY and OH MY is it CUUUUTE?   If you didn't see it yet, you can check it out HERE.   It's called {Nothing but Blue Skies} and it's JUST adorable as can be as I might have mentioned in my post yesterday, heehee :)

Here's my card using some new Basic Grey Origins DP and "woolies".   LOVIN' the woolies.aren't they fabby? I really LOVE the sketch that Jack drew so that made it easy as well :)

Soooooo, I'm SO excited about the NEW KOTM that the DARE blog will be giving away a GRAB BAG of 3 to 4 UNITY singles from ME....to ONE LUCKY PARTICIPANT this week!  Be sure to get those entries in by next Tuesday night to qualify to win!  GOOD LUCK!!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DAREDEVILS along with the DIEDRICH DARE Blog...we hope you'll play along:


See you back here tomorrow for some more UNITY surprises as the DT will have TONS and tons to show you!   I'm totally excited!

Have a WHIMISICAL WEDNESDAY everyone!   Hugs!

xoxo
Jess :)
