Take Note - GIU Day 3

It's hard to believe that it is my GIU Day 3 already. I hope you have liked my projects and left comments for a chance to win some Unity stamps !!  Excited to be featured on the Unity Stamp Company blog today .. The stamp I used on this card is from one of my  favorite kits -- Everything Stronger -- and has sentiments for sympathy and support. I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer last year and my summer/fall was spent having surgeries and treatments. It was not a fun time but I stayed positive ( most of the time ) and spent alot of time making cards to support friends who were going through their own challenges. I fell in love with this kit when I saw it and I hope you do too.. 

I used a card base by Heidi Swapp , placed a doily behind the stamped image and added some rhinestones along the Right side edge. I colored with Faber-Castell Pitt Pens and Staedtler markers

 

Just some trivia about this stamp... The 2004 song "Beautiful Soul" by Jesse McCartney is one of my favorites so when I saw the Everything Stronger stamp set, it reminded me of that song.  Fast forward to 2016 and another favorite of mine, the TV show Fear the Walking Dead. Imagine my surprise when I realized that a 12 years older Jesse McCartney had played Reed, one nasty bad guy,  on the series. Great storyline for him...And it reminded me of this stamp set.. So, that was how this card was born !!  Thanks for indulging my love of trivia !!

Thanks to all who have been leaving comments ! I will choose 2 winners at random to win 25 stamps from Unity from those of you who comment on all 5 blog posts.  I will also send some blog candy to 2 others who comment..

  11. I read grocery ads for a closed-circuit radio station directed to the blind and print-handicapped. I couldn't believe that today's ads were for the 15th through the 21st. Where did June go. I know how you feel about your week going to fast.
    Your card is so pretty. Love the layering and how positioning of the colors and embellishments.
