We LOVE Unity!!!

Hi Peeps!!!
I am sure you have seen the sale but I must start with that.
Order 3 not a typo, THREE stamp kits and you get 60% off your ENTIRE order???  This makes me gasp out loud and cover my mouth!  Right before I did the happy dance.  Bryan LOVES it when I save him so much money.  He totally appreciates the Unity sales LOL  :) 
I am very clever, here I am distracting you with my new baby fish.
I attempted blending colored pencils with odorless turpenoid.  I blended until I thought my hand might fall off!  I think I love water coloring too much to love this type of blending LOL Luckily Angie Blom does not get offended too easily.  Willow Girl still looks beautiful. :)
Please be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop today.
We will have two winner and you will get these awesome kits!!  I bought all 3 of these.  I love them and you will too!  Good Luck!  

 Here is a closer shot of the babies.  Do you have fish?  I think purring cats and swimming fish have fixed dang near every single thing that has ever broken me.  I love them.  I spend an insane amount of time watching them and a lot of the time while holding my purring cat.  Double the therapy.  :)
Guess what I did yesterday?  At 47 I got my first two tattoos!!
I have lost both of my parents and the fish and cats have not been able to ease that heartbreak.  The jury is still out if these have helped or not.  I cried about oh, 15 times yesterday admiring these.  :)  Only twice so far today :)
think pretty Darling!  I love you, Dad in my Dad's handwriting. 
Love, Mom in my Mom's handwriting.
I had stacks of books with the ippity butterfly picked out for my Mom and an awareness ribbon in purple for Alzheimer's for my Dad and I backed out of all of it.  Just their writing was enough for me.  And not just because of the pain.  I just love how perfect they are without anything else.
I LOVE them so much I wanted to hug the artist, his name is Matt Sager!
I did tell him this was my first one day stand, I was breaking up with him.  My foot hurt so bad I wanted to back out of my wrist.  He didn't even skip a beat he responded with Oh No you aren't!  You'll be back just like the rest of them!  LOL
My third and final tattoo will be my Girls thumb prints making a heart with their names in their handwriting.  In like 10 years when I have forgotten how damn bad my foot hurt!  LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you all have perfect days!
Take some time to tell your parents how much you love them, or pet a cat until they purr and watch some fish swim and remember how fantastic they were and how you hope you can be half as good as they were!

Such a cool card, daddy-o LOL! I've thought about tattooing a little butterfly on my mastectomy scar, but I too am very sensitive to pain. I did find some decal tattoos on clearance at Michales, so I'm going to tattoo a feather without the pain!
