GIU Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of Growing In Unity! Sorry I'm late posting this. I discovered Netflix tonight for the first time and waited until almost 12 to put a project together. I watched August Osage County- great movie with some harsh cussing- rated R for that reason, LOL!  I decided to make a New Year's card for some friends that I received a Christmas card from and forgot to send them one. I've got to find an envelope for the card to fit in. Anyway, enough rambling! I found this paper- K&Company Que Sera Sera Designer 12 x 12" Pad at Michaels on Tuesday and used a 50% off coupon from Sunday's paper and since it was the highest item that I bought I got the pad for $7.50! I love deals like that! The Celebrate stamp is from an old collection I bought years ago and I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink to stamp it. I used a stencil and a Creative Memories Black Basic Round-Tip Marker- from a set of 4 (the other colors are red, green, and blue) to write Happy New Year. The tag is from my stash and so is the bling.
I know you're thinking where's the Unity stamp?! :) I used the clock Unity stamp from May 2013 Totally & Utterly Amazing Kit Of The Month and used VersaFine ink again. The sentiment stamp is part of a 2 piece set that I also found at Michaels and is a Momenta stamp. I used VersaFine on this stamp as well. I highly recommend VersaFine ink when stamping! It's the best ink pad I've ever bought. I will add a message later before I mail the card. I used my Close To My Heart mounting square to hold the card down. Yes, I shop from a variety of scrap companies! 15 years of scrap product adds up to a variety which is good! :)
Please keep me in your prayers as I feel like I'm getting sick, but it could be just pressure from the weather changing here in NC. We had thunderstorms all day and the temperature is supposed to drop into the 50s over the weekend. Thank you all for the nice comments! I really appreciate them all. Please come back tomorrow as I have one more project to share. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and don't party too hard! I'll be putting together a 1000 piece puzzle of the American lighthouses and watch the ball drop at Times Square on TV. I'm off today and will work on tomorrow's project later this afternoon. TFL!

I think the clock stamp from Unity would make a cool New Years card. I think I would have put on front instead of inside and used Happy New Year still on front as well :-). Neat stamp and colorful front of card.

Pretty card and I love the clock stamp! I went to Michaels too, but only got some washi tape. My daughter and her boyfriend gave me a gift card for Michaels for Christmas and I am not sure what I want yet!
Happy New Year to you, and I hope you will pass on getting sick!

Such cute cards. I like your colors...

I have the Que Sera Sera stack, too, which I also got for half-price....but several years ago! :) I stayed away from the stores after Christmas this year. lol...
This card turned out great. I, too, love Versafine ink. I have 4 of the minis and think I will try to snag a couple of additional colors when they are on half price at JoAnns. Wish they had reinkers available in all their colors. (sigh)
Hope by now you are feeling some better. Happy New Year!!

Just got back to this blog. I, too, think the clock is an awesome stamp and I really liked your card. I hope you are feeling better. My Fibro flares with changes on the weather so I have a small idea of what you are going through!
