Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!. I think that makes it a great day for the Friends of Unity Blog Hop.
This month's theme is Change. Wow, what a hard one for me. I gave it quite a bit of thought. I tried to think about what images came to mind with change. Being the beginning of Fall of course I thought about the changing colors of the leaves. I also thought of caterpillars to butterflies. But I got a lovely new stamp in the mail last week and along with a beautiful sentiment from another kit, I decided to go a different route.
My first card uses this amazing background by Angie Blom and Unity.
I thought the pathway into the woods would work beautifully with this sentiment to maybe send love and encouragement to someone making a big change in their life. This was colored with Copics. I will list all the supplies below.
I wasn't super happy with just one card so at the last minute I decided to see what butterfly stamps and sentiments I had. I found this one and knew I had to make a card with it also.
This butterfly has been a favorite on mine since the day I first saw it. And this sentiment also seems to be perfect for someone making a change in their life. I colored this one with Copics also but I just had to add some metallic gold splatters. I am sorry they don't show up well in the pictures but they are lovely in person.
And now for the winner from last months blog post. DebbieR, please email me within 2 weeks at Alaine63@gmail.com to claim your prize.
