The cue this month is paper piecing; I love paper piecing. It is one of my favorite techniques to use with stamping. As you probably already know, we have two new members, Colleen and Rachel. Welcome again ladies! So excited to have you join us! I love their art as I'm sure you do as well. Please join us in welcoming them.

Wow! Another year....DONE! So glad 2020 is over. Despite the pandemic, some wonderful things did happen for myself and my family. Our youngest son graduated from high school, our oldest son got a job, my husband was promoted, we both turned 50, and we celebrated 25 years of marriage. So considering, 2020 was not too bad on a personal level. But on a global level, 2020 was TRASH. So many lives lost; and for what. NOTHING! OK, let's get to the happy.
First I want to announce my winner from last month's hop. Cindy Holmes you are my winner! Woot! Woot! Come on down! Please email me your address and I will send your goodies as soon as possible. Congratulations! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy New Year everyone! We're starting off 2021 with a Black and White cue. This cue is always challenging for me. Probably because I just love color. I still managed to add a little color. Tee!Hee!

Hello crafty friends! As I write this, I'm thinking about the winter storm that blew through here yesterday; more than a foot of snow. How did this happen? It is too early to have all this snow. Snow is definitely not one of my favorite things, unless it's enough for a snow day; because who doesn't love a snow day? I know I do. Last year we did not get one snow day. I think we're in for a bad winter. Well, on a lighter note, our cue for December 2020 is My Favorite things. I have countless favorites...dogs, especially mine, books, cozy sweaters, scarves, the beach, naps, Angie girls and more. I incorporated several of my favorites in these two cards. But first, check out our cue:

Welcome back! I am ashamed to say that I have numerous background stamps that have not even seen ink. Maybe we, the Friends of Unity, should have this cue every month next year so I can ink them up. Ha, Ha. I'm not serious. Or am I? Seriously though, the Unity Stamp Co. has been coming out with some amazing background stamps as of late. Here is our November graphic:

Welcome back friends! We have an exciting cue this month...birthdays. You can never have too many birthday cards on hand. I celebrated a huge birthday a month ago. I am happy to say that I am now part of the 50 club. I made two cards for our hop. Since I just celebrated my fiftieth, I decided to make a card featuring a beautiful middle aged woman. I made a manly card for the second one. But before I share my two cards, check out our awesome graphic:
