Uniko Studio Challenge #1 - Hello


uniko challenge 1

Great news!  Uniko Studio will now be hosting their own monthly challenge...this month's theme is "Hello!"  How fun would it be to get to know each other a little better?!

Random fact about me:  My husband and I are the product of a blind date...dated for 18 months while 3 hours away from one another!  Now, here we are, just celebrated our 17th anniversary...and with three kiddos and a full life together!


From Uniko Studio's Today, Tomorrow & Always TIME stamp set, I used the pocket watch image as part of the background on my patterned paper panel (see it peeking out above the tag and ribbon?) and the HELLO and FRIEND sentiments in a fun way!


Make sure you stop by the other gals' blogs to see their fabulous "Hello" projects!


A couple of challenge got my mojo flowing for this "HELLO" card...Cardabilities #79 and ColourQ #198


I received a big box of discounted goodies from Glitz this week and I fell in love with the paper that I used on my card...Uncharted Waters...gorgeous blues and neutrals with pops of pink and yellow!

Stacey, there are so many unique things that I love about your pretty card. I like how you repeated the "hello" sentiment, the folded doilies, the buttons, and stopwatch stamp peeking from behind and the sequins scattered throughout the card. Great job on the sketch and colors too. TFS
