Unity Stamp Company & Spellbinders 2-Day Blog Hop

Welcome to our TWO-day event!


You should be joining me from Lesley’s blog, if not then head to the beginning on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.

With all the blog-swaps that are happening out there lately, I can't think of one more exciting than when the amazing women of SPELLBINDERS get together with the rockstars of UNITY STAMP COMPANY!

We can't wait to show you a special line of coordinating products featuring SPELLBINDERS dies and SAMANTHA WALKER for Unity Stamp Co. rubber stamps!

Not only are we thrilled to be collaborating on such a special 2-day event, but ONE of you will win ALL of the coordinating stamps and dies from the Samantha Walker collection! We will also have 1 winner each day from the comments that will receive 1 Samantha Walker stamp set and coordinating dies.

So be sure to enjoy our hop both days, leave comments on all of the blogs each day and check back to see if you won!

(winners will be posted on Wednesday, October 19th on the Unity Blog and Spellbinders Blog)

I got to use the {Cuckoo Clocks} spellbinders set for todays card...how cute is it!!!
and the matching stamp set is one of my FAVES from Samantha Walker :)

I decided to stamp the cute flower and instead of using the scallops as the topper for the clock...they looked like they would make some FUN & FUNKY corners!!
I also used the little flower die to add another layer onto the flower.  EVERYTHING coordinated so perfectly...match made in heaven FOR SURE!!!
Now please head over to Judy’s blog to see her AMAZING creation.
In case you get lost along the way, please visit the Unity Stamp Company blog for a list of all the blogs in today’s blog hop!
