Creating with Unity- Rock On Man!!!!


**I have 2 posts today so please scroll down for my first post :)** ** Oh and click here for a chance at my blog candy...**
I am a big fan of Unity stamps..I followed their blog when it first started before they opened as they built up interest in their product and their dream. I have been hooked ever since! The Unity girls are sooo much fun from the sounds of their blogs and I now work with Jeanne on another DT which is so cool as I first noticed here doing the Unity DT hops. One of my nephews spent almost a full week this past week in the hospital with unknown severe pains and high blood pressure. He was released from the hospital one day before his 12th birthday thankfully so I whipped up this card to give to him. He is a huge guitar hero fan- and he likes the old school metal so he is dear to this auntie's heart. When I got my October KOM from Unity (I get the KOM from them each month shipped right to me door- easy peasy) I was sooo happy to get this guitar stamp. I am always looking for stamps I can use for boys that are past the cutesy animal phase. Mind you I still force cards on them with cute animals because that is my right as an aunt and worse still- I make them say they love them as I yell "I made that from scratch for you, you little punk so you better like it!!" Okay I don't yell that every time but it is nice to give a card they won't hide so their friends won't see their cute bunny card from auntie. Does anyone else make their nephew's prove that they saved the 'special' cards from their auntie?? Cause auntie gives big money in cards and it may be reduced if cards are thrown out...just sayin....I am sooo terrible lol!

What I loved about this card is that it was sooo fast to make and looked cool. I stamped right on the kraft paper and coloured it with my copics. I used my sparkle gelly pen to add some bling to the knobs. I also had these yellow arrow blings that I had kickin around and I think suit the card. I heard he liked it (he better have or else noogie ville mister!!) I hope you like my super fast and uber cool Unity card too! Cheers!!!!!

Andrea..I hope your nephew gets better soon and I am sure he thinks his "rockin' aunt" (yes that was my attempt of humour)is the best and this card is amazing!! Fantastic work!! Xx
