Unity GIU Blog Hop

  Happy Sunday!  Today, a group of ladies and Gents that were GIU artists in September and October are hopping with more fun Unity cards!  More chances for you to enjoy some inspiration and to WIN some fun Unity stamps!



Thanks for stopping by- I have a couple of cards for today.  First, a fun and festive Christmas scene.
This darling Unity set is called Woodland Festivities.  This  scene is watercolored using Daniel Smith paints.  I added shimmer with Stickles.




Next, a card for a family member that is going to become a mom for the first time- lots of changes in the future : )  And, that will make me a Grandmother!
 I just had to paper piece the image- I used mostly SU DSP from my stash. The embellishments are generic from my stash- dew drops which I have in every color : )  The die was purchased from ebay.

                           

Here is the Hop order :
