Friends of Unity December Blog Hop


Welcome to the Friends of Unity December Blog Hop!

Our theme is All is Calm and
I wanted to share this image with you today because ...for me...
it captures the essence of the holiday season in such a peaceful way.


The card I'm sharing today was created using  Be the Light by Phyllis Harris.
I colored this sweet gal with Zig Clean Color Real Brush water color markers
and added the light rays with Fossilized Amber distress ink.
As I often do...I added another sentiment using a sticker from the 
Occasions Idea Ology pack by Tim Holtz.
Unity carries a variety of these in the shop...you can browse them HERE
