A VERY Special Friends With Flair!

It's a HELP Thing
That's it. 
A VERY big part of Unity needs help.
You can read about it HERE
I have heard Robert's name but not ever had any interaction with him.  I have heard Monica's name but have only interacted with her once and honestly it was indirectly.  That word sounds cold to me.  It was not cold, it was amazing. 
Unity is a HUGE part of my life.  Last night I told my sister of 44 years "They are like Sisters with another Mother"
That sums it up.
Being an {ippity} chick is such a small part of the big picture, truth be told. {not that my {ippity} chicks are not important.  Mors aka Nora Anne, Carisa, Angie Reece are my soul sisters]
A while ago I won Friends With Flair.  It was my first win and it was SOME-THING!!  If you know me or have read my blog, on almost every post you might get that I am a  BIG Unity FAN! 
My Sister with the same Mother [Father too LOL] told me YEARS ago you can not beat Unity's deal ANYWHERE you have to sign up for their Kit of the Month.
I resisted?  *GASP*  WHAT????
I saw the Unity light. 
I joined.
I fell on very hard times.
I quit.
I was rude to Sweet Eryn. 
{Please forgive me.}
I joined KOM again when things got better.
Andrea, I love you all day long!  YOU my friend are the peanut butter to my jelly!
OK, back to the FWF win.  That morning that my 25 random stamps arrived my DH who I love to the moon and back made me MAD!! M-A-D sort of mad! 
He found the bulging envelope on the porch.
He raced into the house, ripped it open and poured it on the kitchen table.  He said Maybe THIS will make you happy!!  I had my neighbors baby on one hip and Carlee on the other.  I quickly set Carlee down and texted Andrea how much I loved them.  They were HUGE!  Who is their right mind does not love a huge Unity stamps??
I scooped Carlee up and took both Crabby Patty's to my bed to rub their backs to slumber and a moment of peace.  It finally happened.  They both slept at the same time!  *GASP*  I jumped from bed and ran to the kitchen to check out the stamps. 
I had a missed text.
It was Andrea.
She said it was a JOKE.
Unity stamps are not jokes, I told her!  
I started to sort the awesome pile of stamps!
I said WOW  There are  lot of camels. And trees.
Those Unity Peeps sent me a JOKE prize. 
They all signed a card that I keep above my computer monitor so I can see it all day long while I work and think about them and how funny the whole thing was/is. LOL
I LOVED it!  I laughed until I cried. 
It was WAY before that GAG gift that I loved them.  
I made all of them cards that they deserved! 

They are Turkey's!  
I put that in every card!! *snicker*
PLEASE, I beg you, go order the best red rubber on the planet!  Every stamp set you get will help Robert and Monica!  NOW is the perfect time to get the sets you have been wanting!  
12% of every order goes into their pockets as a random act of kindness, because that is how The Magnuson's aka Unity roll!
There are SALES too!  Big shocker right?
Picture of Tiny Flutters
This beautiful butterfly is only $1.20 you get the stamp Monica and Robert get the $1.20 
Don't forget to head on over to Friends With Flair and join us!
What if *YOU* won a bunch of camels?  LOL  Actually I think that was a one time deal and they knew only I would love camel stamps!  LOL
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Unity and all of the Peeps!
Robert and Monica are in my prayers!
I hope they get so many orders we have to wait months to get our stamps!
If you don't need any stamps right now you could even send a check.  I can't even imagine the money they are spending on gas being 45 minutes away from each other.
Monica makes these stamps we all adore and Robert ships them.  They might be my favorite couple sending me all these stamps for all these years.  *SWOON*
Get well Robert!  Hurry home!

Thank goodness for my phone, I am able to hop today! Its only a little hard to read! Your blog post made me cry! And Robert's story and online journal made me bawl last night :( Unity is awesome and I hope they raise TONS of money for Robert and Monica.

I just finished reading your note about Monica and Robert. It is a sad time for all involved. BUT CANCER CAN BE BEAT. They must not give up that HOPE. I am a cancer survivor and have just passed my 5 year mark. I did it with family and friends support. It is a great thing they are doing with the sale. I can tell that it is ONE big family at UNITY. I kept busy with making cards and scrapping throughout my battle. I just wanted to mention that I received cards from my Cyber friends from all over the world and I will never forget that PEOPLE DO CARE.
Sorry my comment is a long one but I just wanted to stress that you can beat this disease just keep on fighting it.
Your cards are really cute.
