Unity Stamp Co. Inspirational Blog Hop!

Woohoo, the blog hop is finally here! View the Inspirational Blog Hop by starting at the Unity Stamp Co. blog. I love using Unity Stamp for my scrapbook layouts and for making cards - so versatile.
Today I made a card for one of my favorite causes, Cards for Heroes. I think a soldier's family might enjoy receiving this cute card in the mail:



This mushroom stamp pairs up perfectly with the The Green Stack papers from Die Cuts With a View. I paper pieced the mushroom, and added some pearls. The tiny mushrooms were cut out of patterned paper, and the owl and branch are part of the patterned paper. Supplies: mushroom stamp from Unity Stamp Co. February 2009 Kit of the Month; patterned papers from Die Cuts With a View (background, tiny mushrooms) and My Mind's Eye (big mushroom); pearls are Kaisercraft; ink is Memento Rich Cocoa; cardstock is Bazzill; misc. jute twine.

I am a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland. Here is one of my favorite little quotes from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll: [said by the Queen of Hearts]

Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Thanks for visiting. Now hop over to the fabulous Natalie's blog and check out what fun project she has made.
