Friends Of Unity~ December Blog Hop

Hey there! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest! 
I cannot believe this, but it has been a full year since we started this blog hop! Our love of Unity Stamp Co has brought a few of us together, and we have all become fast friends! 
So, we decided that December's cue should be
 "Thank You" 
I want to thank the constant supporters of this hop
 and mention my choice of top 3  here in my post..
Even though I appreciate each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart

Rebecca Yahrling &
C G Hundley
 you both comment on MY blog even when I post for CLC,
 so I'm also going to send you a "little something"
 not much, but a thanks for your support!!!Please message me your addresses, ok

and last of my top 3 is....
Cindy Holmes
Cindy!! I love all your sweet, and detailed comments ..
You don't know how encouraging it is for us/me to read them!
 This is my first year of blogging, too, along with being in the Friends Of Unity Blog Hoppers, I am also on the design team at Coffee Loving Cardmakers. Blog comments let me know you like what I'm doing :)
So thank you, Cindy!!
I am going to be sending all 3 of you a stamp set from my's random but I will need for you to message me your addresses on FB messenger,  ASAP and I will get them out on Monday Dec 3rd
I also want to just give a shout out to thank the other ladies who have been with us from the beginning.
.I'd love to send ALL of you a little something, too, but as we have stated before, we are not sponsored by Unity, so all these giveaways are on us.

It definitely is heartwarming. Just wonderful inspiration and I am thankful to you and all the FOU girls. Happy Holidays!

  35. Robyn you have such a giving heart...loved that you used this post as a way to say thank you to your friends (in addition to giving us some inky inspiration). People don't say thank you enough. I am going to try to do it more too. Happy Holidays.

  36. It's a lovely card! I love the rustic feel and how the blue of the flower works so well together. I didn't know the hop has only been going on for a year. I joined the show & tell November 2017. When I saw the hop the following month I just assumed it had been a long standing thing. I have truly enjoyed the hop and inspiration I find here.

  37. I love burlap on a card! Yours is lovely.
