September/October [be inspired] challenge by Unity

I really love the challenges that are hosted and sponsored by Unity Stamp Co.  The way that people use the stamps often blows my mind.  Unfortunately, I usually don't get a chance to play along myself, but this month I had a whole morning to myself and decided to treat myself to hours of creating!!!!  

In fact, I decided to use both the card sketch and the layout sketch. If you want to play along, you can find the sketches, along with a colour challenge here

For the card, I used the Phyllis Harris set called GO TO your HAPPY Place.  It's so great ... all three sentiments make me happy, so just getting to play with them brought me to a very happy place!  


For the layout, I used a couple of stamps.  I created the patterned paper behind the photo using Christy Tomlinson's cooped up notes.  Then, I used the Give Thanks set created by Joslyn Nielson.  I've used this set a lot since I got it.  The images are just perfect for autumn projects.  Add some distress paint, water, a spray bottle and some old lace and voila ... 

Thanks for looking.
