All things June.....Unity Kit of the Month

Hi everyone!!

It's JUNE already!! 
How DID that happen??
We are half way through 2014 already...yikes!
Time really does fly...

I went to a late night crop a couple weeks ago.
There is a reason for sharing this random fact...bear with me...
One of my big time saving tips, when it comes to packing for a short crop: I grab my Unity KOM, a few 6X6 paper pads, my copics and watercolor pencils and away I evening full of coloring!! 
I just pick out some papers that I like together with each image I want to color. Then I color it to match the shades in the pattern. This makes it SOOO fast for me when it comes time to create my card(s), as my image is ready and colored, plus I have some papers picked out already...perfect!

So because I went to this late nite crop and colored up my June KOM, I have a bunch of cards to share with you this week....

The flower image is from the June KOM but the sentiment is from an older KOM. I wanted to be able to use the card as wedding card so I found a sentiment that would work from February 2013's kit:

See, I had you all fooled until cards were all super fast to put together, even though some of them look more's a great way to get lots done at once....pre-coloring your images makes things a breeze!

LOL....the perfect seg-way for the latest Stamp of the Week!
