Seasons Change...

Thanks for coming back to see Sneak Peek #2 from UNITY Stamps!

{{{PLEASE scroll down to see my Greeting Farm preview today (you won't BELIEVE what's creepin' up on the Farm! and for my MTSC Sketch-it's SUCH a busy week on my blog-you guys have NO idea how thankful I am that you're still w/ me!  ;) }}}

Ok, do you guys remember that Expose song titled the same?  Yikes...I'm having a bad early 90's flashback, LOL!

Well, nothing is going to cure that better than this SERENE and versatile new stamp from the JULY Kit of the Month coming on THURSDAY from UNITY STAMP CO!  Here's a peek:

And here's what I created for you today:

I was growing VERY frustrated that I had not yet had the chance to play with cork.  Typical me reaction to something new-speaking of change, as sometimes I do not like it! Ok, that's not true.  I ALWAYS  END UP liking it.  I just might drag my heels a bit.  So this is the Jess thought process on cork:

Week 1: Cork seen on cards.  Jess says "meh, don't like it".

Week 2:  Cork on cards.  Jess says "ok, that card is really cute. Still no likey."

Week 3: Cork on cards.  Jess says "alright, who SELLS the cork.  At least I should KNOW THIS in case I might 'NEED' it for a project later?"

Week 4:  Jess says "what does this card need that it's missing?"  Oh, right.  CORK.  The list just goes on from there.  it's so easy to convince ourselves we don't "NEED" the latest fun tool or trick in crafting, isn't it?

Well, thanks to a VERY sweet gift voucher from my girl Kim at MFT, I was able to dabble.  So CORK it was :)  Seasons Change.  EMBELLIES change :)   Tastes change.  And so does my stubbornness to try new things :D  LOVE that!


That's all for me today, but be sure to scroll down for my GREETING FARM preview and for Lots of important info.  SEE YOU TOMORROW for even MORE sneek peeks and previews!  Be sure to stop by the UNITY BLOG to see what the rest of the girls have been up to, too!
