Friends of Unity Blog Hoppers, October 2019, Change

If you visited my blog last month, then you know my birthday was September 3. In celebration of my birthday I had decided to give away two prize packs. Drum roll please!! The winner of my first prize pack which includes three Itty Bitty sets and several random stamps I received in grab bags is Debbie R. The winner of my second prize pack, the Coffee Lovers Paper pack is Anna. Please contact me through Facebook or email me at lovepaperetc@gmail.com. Congratulations to you both and I hope to hear from you real soon!

Now for the current challenge. This month our cue is change. Check out this amazing graphic:

A few ladies are giving away prizes this month, so remember to comment on all our blogs for a chance to win some crafty goodness.

Here is my card for this month's challenge:



I bought this gorgeous lady four years ago and this is my first time using her! I'm sure many of you can relate. I shop so much faster than I create. Ha! Ha! This was also my first time using my gelli plate I purchased in April 2019, so that's not so bad, right? I must use this gelli plate more. I love the results. Such vibrant, rich color. In keeping with the fall season and its splendid colors, I decided to go with fall colors. In the creation of this card, I added two colors to my gelli plate. I then grabbed my Misplaced Chevron Stamp and laid it on the plate. I removed it and then placed my paper on to the plate and voila, my background for this pretty lady was created. She comes from a set called, the strength she needs, and the sentiment comes from that's life.

Here is the hop order to continue hopping or if you need to go back and revisit:

  5. Wow! Gorgeous card, Dawn! That background is amazing!! I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I have a gelli plate that I've never even opened... it's been a few years since I bought it! I always have good intentions to give it a go... but alas, still haven't. You've inspired me to pull that gelli plate out and get inky!! Maybe for World Card Making Day!! Love your beautiful card, friend!!
