I've got a PLAYDATE w/ Unity and the MTSC!...

Hey everyone!

I'm SUPER excited about today's post because I've been waiting to play along with the Playdate Cafe's 1 year anniversary challenge featuring UNITY Stamp Co!  Unity is sponsoring the PDCC and their HUGE week-long celebration and we're sure honored to be their favorite!   I am new to the Playdate Cafe but will definitely be back to play along!

Here's this week's Challenge:

My card today features all these yummy colors and I'm a TAD bit giddy about my first "Fan-fold" flower embellie.  Can you say CUTE embellishment and it's probably the cheapest one around!  It took no more than a 3/4 in. strip of 12x12 DP and a button-are ya kidding?  SUPER easy following Beate's fabulous tute HERE.

The sentiment is from the October Kit of the Month from UNITY stamps...you are LOVED.   I'd like to dedicate this card to anyone who could use the hug today, including someone special that I'm thinking about who doesn't know how loved they are.  My heartfelt sentiment is as sunny and sincere as this color combo and it's a GREAT day to tell someone you love them, too!  <3

I followed this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge for this card-it's a FABULOUS one!  Here's the sketch:

Be sure to check out the rest of the Muses this week to see what they have for you, including our AWESOME Oct. Guest Muse, Heather:



Last but not least, be sure to check out my girl Jimmi, also on the Unity DT, as she is playing along w/ the PlayDate Cafe today too and I'm sure has something BEAUTIFUL for you to look at!

Thanks everyone!  See you tomorrow!
