Be Inspired...


HELLO my friends.  Starting a week with lots of things in mind... work, health, house chores, scrapbooking projects, family...  I have so much to do...   But being busy, worried, and even in pain... remind me that I'm alive! 

For the Unity Be Inspired Challenge I made a Christmas card with non traditional Xmas colors... Those are the ones I love!


I used gold paper, and also made some beautiful textures with modeling paste and gold spray mist over pink cardstock.  Colored my lady mainly with watercolor pencils... and I absolutely loved the result and hope you too! 

Finishing touches include sequins (of course!), baker's twine, and these beautiful chipboard snowflakes I've got from a Unity mystery bag recently.  I painted them... Lovely, aren't they?

I will link this to the Challenge, and will also share in the Friday Friends with Flair next Friday, so you can leave comments and have the opportunity to win with Unity Stamp Co.



OH... and don't wanna leave without sharing a Halloween photo from last Friday.  We had a blast at work.  My team dressed up like local (Puerto Rico) children's characters.   We also had other departments and had a contest.  All won something... and all had so much fun.
