Unity Friends with Flair (24.02.2012) & A Giveaway


Happy Friday is here again!  I have a card and a piece of happy news to share.  First of all, the card - recently I bought some Ippity stamps for the first time.  It was really nice to see them all on Unity's website, and the ability to combine orders is great. 


The image & sentiment are from the Ippity sets "What Matters Most" and "Devoted".  The house is coloured with Copic Markers (YG03, YG05, RV23, RV25, RV29, BG10, BG0000, E00, E02, E21, E23, E25, E04, E31), and patterned paper from Crate Paper - Farmhouse.

My happy news is my cards have been published in this latest issue of Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft!  Truly overjoyed ;)
Here are some pics from the pages in the magazine:

I never thought my cards would ever be published, and it's a great feeling to hold a magazine with your contribution.

And...for making you read this long post, I'd like to offer a little giveaway - I have 2 Unity Itty Bittys to give away for a lucky commenter.  Just leave me a comment and I'll pick a name on Sunday before I leave for my vacation.  Good luck!

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a Lovely weekend!
Kary
