Happy World Card Making Day! - Unity Challenge!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!

Photobucket

I'm hosting a challenge over at Unity Stamp Company - and I'm super excited!

I hope that all Unity fans can join us over there for hourly challenges for your chance to win some amazing prizes!

So... did you plan this day in advance so you can craft all day? (hehe... as much as I would've LOVED to... I have a working hubby and 3 children... I am going to try, but I don't think it's good parenting to hand them over my ipad and iphone all day!)

Unity is giving away AWESOME prizes! There's a NEW challenge held HOURLY and the winners of those will receive $25 gift card to Unity!

BUT...  if you complete all the challenges (you do NOT have to complete within the hour! You have until the 20th to complete the challenges!) - you will be entered for a GRAND PRIZE... which is a YEAR SUBSCRIPTION to Kit of the Month! ...AND there will be TWO WINNERS!

Now that's worth playing for, right?

(Oh, and if you also complete the Sketch and Theme Challenge - you get a BONUS entry for this, too!)

 (I'm going to repost most of what I posted in Unity blog - for more exposure!
Lucky you though - my blog has more pics of my card! lol...)

For this challenge - it's all about TEXTURE.

I love adding texture into my projects.  
It simply adds interest.

Texture can come in various forms...
embossed paper.
embossed stamps.
add glitter.
use fabric.
(my fave is canvas and burlap.)
sew it.
add lace trims.
use twine.
corrugated cardboards.
sandpaper! (lol...)

Well, I'm sure you all know what I mean now!

So for this challenge -
Create a card using AT LEAST TWO different textures.

Easy peasy, right?

For an inspiration card, I made a 'give thanks' card... 
because for all us Canadians, it's a Thanksgiving weekend!
 Happy Thanksgiving to you!
(Gobble, gobble!)
