A Unique Hop Continued

Happy Monday!

The Unique Blog Hop continues today with Chris and Mischelle's post.

I wanted to share a couple cards I started for last week and they just didn't come together until yesterday.  Above is a card using a stamp set I won on Chris' challenge blog back in May.  I am so rusty at stamping, I just could not get it to stamp cleanly, until yesterday and several ink and paper combinations.  I colored it with distress markers.  Papers are digital from Doodle Pantry.

I also haven't stitched on a card in months because my machine was giving me fits, stalling shortly after getting started.  I couldn't remember if I fixed it before I put is away.  I do recall cleaning and straightening the needle and re-threading it.  Turns out it was fine, so I must have fixed the problem. 

The second card uses the paper pad I won on Andrea's challenge blog in May.  {May was a good month}.
So next Unique blog hop stop ...
