I used my image, Flower Frame to create the frame which I cut out by hand (no tricky edges :D ). The sentiment is a little one from an anniversary set from Papertrey Ink.  HEY! I just realised it was from an anniversary set! LOL

The doily was stamped with a perfectly fitting background wood grained circle stamp from Unity Stamp Co.

We would love for you to join us.

Adding a beautiful touch quickly

We have a funeral in the family tomorrow and I am helping with the arrangements. We will be singing Amazing Grace at the grave site and I printed out the verses to be handed out there. I thought they looked a bit bleak so I quickly stamped each one with London Fog Memento ink and a stamp from Unity's January 2014 Kit of the month.
May everyone be well and give your brothers, sisters, spouse, children and parents a hug and kiss when you can. You never know how much time you will have left with them.

GIU Day 4

Good day everyone!  Let's take a moment and COUNT OUR BLESSINGS this day!

I first inked up the main image with distress ink (mustard seed) and then used my dew drop Memento brown ink to ink around the edges of the stamp where the writing was. I then stamped it. I also inked around the edges of the card stock before gluing the panel.

UNITY STAMPS USED:
