I am a Unity Girl this week!!

First time being a Unity Girl, and I love those stamps.  Wish I had many more of them!

Today I am showing off a card I made for my Bestie, Laura, who has been a wonderful friend since the beginning of time.  I consider her my sister, and luckily for me, she feels the same.  During our lives we've lost touch a few times, but when we get back together, it's like no time is missing.  She just recently drove across state lines to come and  help me get my Kitchen emptied out, getting ready for a remodel.  What a buddy!  Hopes she comes back to help me reinstall it all!!

Anyway, here's the wonderful image I used from Unity.  PERFECT.



I've been into making cards this way since about 2009 and I Love it.  I've been a crafty person my whole life; doing sewing, and lot of misc projects.  Making things, did some oil painting for a while.  But this cardmaking is by far the most fulfilling for me. Although for years at a job I made cards, I started this style mostly when a cousin of mine was diagnosed with terminal cancer and I needed to get cards to her since I couldn't visit, and there didn't seem to be much out there to send to her, so I devised some of my own, and then found out about this hobby.  And I continue to make cards for people who are ill and to remind them and help cheer them maybe that someone is thinking of them and praying for them.  I use it also to stay in communication with some of my older relatives who I don't get to see often.  I'm not in the best of health myself, I'm on disability and use a walker and oxygen 24/7, so this hobby keeps me out of trouble, well sometimes anyway.

I became a widow a couple years ago, and I've now turned my husband's old TV viewing room into my craft room.  I was amazed at how much stuff I really had.  When it's all in one space it was a little overwhelming, but what fun I had discovering all that I had accumulated!!

I hope you enjoy some of what I make this week.

Edited to say:   I am tickled to death by all the lovely comments, nearly overwhelmed.  Thank you all so much. It will take me a while, but I'll be by to visit you one day, I promise!!

Terri,
You have beautiful cards! I love them all. I am glad you are doing a Unity card. I am a unity stamp lover. I think the bestie card is one of the most fun cards to make. I love how you did yours!
I am looking forward to visiting your blog again over and over to see what you are up to in the paper world.
Sincerely,

Hi Terri, Congratulations on being a Unity girl. This image is great for a friend like yours and I like what you did with it. I hear ya about organizing a craft room. I am trying to get mine organized and I too am amazed and a little horrified at how much I have. Never about my stamps though.

Wonderful card. I love that image, but don't have it yet. I am trying to limit myself, because I have a lot and cards like this make it hard to keep my self-control.
