Unity Sketch Challenge

Amber put a sketch challenge on SCS so I tried. I definitely had to get out of my comfort zone but it was fun.

I just love my KOTM from Unity Stamps.

Wednesday - Unity Stamp Challenge

It is that time again - Unity Stamp Challenge .

The challenge was to make a masculine card. I realized that I have a lot of stamps but they are flowers and things for girls. I will need to change that. This is a challenge but I think it works.
