Beates Challenge and Unity Stamps

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Today we had a 2 year birthday party for the son of our good friends. It was nice to hang out and the rain held out!

This card I made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I used the set "My Hero" from Treehouse Stamps. I really liked this set because I have a little boy and girl so thought it would be perfect for Father's Day cards and scrapbooking.

I started with SU River Rock and embossed with the distressed embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. The patterned paper and the cranberry background paper is by Making Memories as are the brads. I colored the image using Prismacolor Markers.

Today I also received my order from Unity Stamps. This company is fairly new and can I tell you how awesome it is! First off, I ordered my stuff on Thursday late in the day. The owner Angela posted a Random Special. When I saw that I had to jump on board. How psyched was I when I received my package of loot TODAY! You may have seen or read things about Unity. People have been saying their images are large and packaging wonderful! But you know how it is you never know for sure what things are like until you experience it for yourself right? I swear my jaw hit the desk when I opened the package. Here is a picture of my loot so you can see how awesome it looks:

So you definitely want to check out Unity Stamps! Of course since I'm a "day late and dollar short" I will miss out on an awesome DT call they are having. BUMMER! Oh well, maybe there will be other chances in the future, you never know. Let me know what you guys think of Unity.

I'm sure I'll have more rave reviews of Unity soon but for now let me run.

Till later....
