{be inspired} with Unity Thursday

Hi everyone!!
It's that time again....YAY!!


I chose to play along with the color challenge this month.


I am not much of a Halloween fan, so i decided to use the color inspiration in a masculine card instead....
I was sorting a bunch of papers the other day and came across this oldie from My Mind's Eye - the stars were a perfect match, so I knew right away I was going to use it for my card.
Here's how it turned out:


Not sure why, but masculine cards are always such a challenge for me....I really have to go out of my way and make a point to make them....but I usually end up loving the result.
Hmmm....maybe that means I need to do it more often?
I am thankful that the color challenge got me in the mode!!

Be sure to play along with us this month....all the details are here.
Its a great way to {be inspired}...... and of course, there are prizes!!

I also created a card with this cutie.....
I seriously LOVE my {stamp of the week}'s...



So that's it....
'Guess that means its time to get back to the hop.....

This week we have TWO amazing Unity filled PRIZE PACKAGES to give away.



Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.

Here's a list of all the pretty faces in today's blog hop:
