I love Polka Dots!

Yes, I do. They are almost always the right accent to any card. I found some leftover close to cocoa dsp (retired SU pack, can't remember the name of it) and used it on two different cards this week. Thursday was the Unity Stamp Co.'s Hip Hop party so I played along with two of their challenges. The first challenge was to use the colors of Unity. If you have been to their website and have seen their logo you know it is full of dots and created with browns and you turquoise! The next challenge just called for a card with polka dots-any kind, color, and any amount! I kept mine fairly simple since I wanted to highlight the sentiment. Unity has these awesome single stamps with beautiful, motivational words of wisdom. This is one of my favorites and at some point I will create a framed piece of artwork with this quote. I used markers to color the different words. See how I off-set the image and mounted it crooked. I did that on purpose. You know why? Yep, you guessed it. I stamped this image completely crooked. I was so aggravated with myself and instead of redoing the whole thing I decided I could mount it this way and no one would know (well, except you all, since now I told you,lol!). I always tell my customers, mistakes aren't mistakes, just a reason for embellishment (and in this case, creative placement!). Hope you have a wonderful Friday! Hugs,


  1. FABulous the polka dots! GREAT unity stamp sentiment...good fix too although I don't know that I would have even noticed :) Happy Friday!

  2. Love all the polka dots and that tafetta ribbon is gorgeous, love the coloring of the sentiment!!! I don't think I would have noticed it being crooked either!!

  3. Awesome cards!! I agree, polka dots are the best!! I always run out of my polka dot paper first!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
