Friends of Unity October Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Friends of Unity October Blog Hop. This month the theme is change. With summer turning to autumn and all the beautiful colors changing around me, I easily could have easily found my inspiration right outside my window. Instead, I went in a uniquely different direction with the theme.

My inspiration for this card was sending a note to a far away friend or maybe the sender had recently moved away and was mailing a letter back to someone in their hometown. I then realized that after a friend recently switched jobs, this could also make a great retirement card, or even a little pick me up for a college student who is away from home at school.


Hop along with the other Friends of Unity and see their creations...Pssst! There is a giveaway too!

  12. I like that you shared with us the variety of occasions that this card can be used for. All of these reasons fit the change theme perfectly.One of the many reasons that I love Unity's stamps is that they can be used for so many situations. I do like your card. It reminds me that I have had my eye on that mailbox stamp set.
