Now on with my project:
I decided to make a card to be given to someone at a later date, I'm not sure who yet. The card base is Recollections A2 Kraft. I cut a sheet of 12 x 12" Basic Occasions Jewel Scrap Pack to fit the card and glued it down with Elmer's Craft Bond Permanent Tape Runner. The stamped image is from Unity Stamp Company Dragonflies and Fairies set. This image was given to me in a swap in Girls, Giggles, Glitter, and Glue on Facebook. I used my scalloped edge decorative scissors to cut it out of the sheet of white cardstock it was on with some other stamped images. I used Spectrum Noir Essentials Blended Professional Colored Pencils to color in the fairy and used the same Elmer's Craft Bond to glue it down. The sentiment- all you need is faith, trust, and a little Pixie Dust is also from Unity- it was in a grab bag I won from one of their Growing In Unity blog hops. I stamped it with Versa Fine Onyx Black Pigment Ink on typing paper and fussy cut around the image so it would fit on the card. I know the card doesn't say get well soon, but it fits. I left the inside blank so I can write a message in it before mailing it.
Up next is SHANNON H- and I'm sure she has something uplifting to share with us.
Here's our line up in case you get lost:

Thanks for all the sweet comments! I'm becoming a Unity freak! Most of my Valentine's were made with their stamps. I'll blog about them next week.

Wonderful stamp. Somebody will be a very lucky recipient. It's just sad that they have to get sick to get such a lovely card but I know it will definitely make them feel better when they do. It was fun hopping with you.
