The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Mesh

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other. ~Audrey Hepburn (1929–1993)

Good morning!
We have a new Crash your Stash Challenge starting at The Outlawz Challenges which will run through November 15th

Our generous Sponsor this month Anne Fenton Designs with a prize of 3 images from her blog.

Our cue this month is Mesh

I don’t have a lot of this stuff but I have enough of it to be annoying when I’m searching in my washi tape drawer. It really does add some great texture and dimension though. Which is probably why I still have a couple rolls laying around plus a few colored sheets.

I did overlay the lantern image on top of a lumber-y (is that a word?) background image to give it a bit of depth and interest. Plus, the colors would pull in from the cardstock and the mesh I chose to use.

My husband and I will be celebrating our 36th Wedding Anniversary this year! We’ve had our shares of ups and downs, ins and outs, but with the Grace of God we have managed to sort out what’s important, raise two fine human beings and not kill each other in the process! I think this card says it all!

I love him so much!

Let your imagination take you wherever you want to be. ~Bob Ross, The Joy of Painting

Good morning!

I would like to once again thank Unity Stamps for the opportunity to be a Unity Gal this year! Such a highlight for me and it’s so uncomplicated because their stamps are always amazing and easy to use!

One of the things about Unity is their generosity! They really practice what they preach and, on that note, I am so excited to be able to share the winners of a $20.00 gift certificate, selected from those that commented on my Unity Gal posts this past week!
