hopping with the Unity team today - check out the new {be inspired} challenge!

oh, folks, can i just tell you how utterly thrilled i am to be joining in the Unity blog hop today?  my "blessings" card was chosen as last month's {be inspired} winner, and not only did i get to choose a bunch of AMAZING stamps as my prize, but i am part of the fun hop today where YOU could win some amazing stamps, too!

welcome!  so glad you've made it to The Chronicles, and i hope you're enjoying the hop so far (you should have started at the Unity blog) - the creativity along this hop is FABULOUS and i am sure you'll be inspired to use your stamps in different ways and maybe to try some new techniques!  are you hopping?  it's a party over here, and i'm so excited to be a guest!  :)  leave some love along all the hop stops, and you could be one of the lucky winners!



SO!  there's a brand new challenge...


and to say that i was inspired would be an understatement!  here's what i made to join in the fun...

this one, using the "Matching Socks" Itty Bitty - it
follows the card sketch and the colors (plus a few extras!):

and this one, that actually follows the scrapbook sketch and the color challenge - this one uses "Where You Should Be" which was one of my choices for my prize... i LOVE this set (the sentiment and the green flower silhouettes on that panel come from it):

and there you have it.  i AM inspired by the Unity {be inspired} challenge!  happy hopping, and don't forget to comment along the way - you could win something seriously awesome, and hey, we ALL want to be winners, right?  :)  have a great day, chickens! 

***linked up at Paper Issues for "The World is a Circle" - new issue sponsored by Ruby Rock-it - love the wood button and quirky circles i used on my sock card!***
