I used some very old Stampin" Up! DSP  I don't even know the name of the paper pack. 
I have saved this sheet back for years. I just loved it (Yes, it did pinch a little to cut it ;/ )

Friends of Unity~July 2021~ Summer Vacation

Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
We are hopping again over at Friends Of Unity!!
This month's cue- Summer Vacation!
I had a ton of fun coloring up the May 2021 Unity Kit of the Month
 Summer Vibes {kom 5/21}
Here's a few cards I made for this months hop
 For this card, I stamped the image on a sheet of white card stock cut at 3 1/2 x 8 1/2
I stamped the trio of umbrella's from the kit onto a separate sheet, and fussy cut out this one. I did the same thing with the flip flops from the set, too
I colored them to all match. I did add the beach water line...
(sorry the picture is a bit off~ these slimline cards need more room in my light box than I have....trying to work out this problem)
This is how I envision myself right now, soaking up some rays....but alas, the next card is more like me these days 
Aren't they adorable??? 
Yep, this is me and my old man on Siesta Key beach
This set is called 
Retired < link
Next up, I'm back with the May KOM
As everyone knows, I am a HUGE fan of Unity's Angie's Girls!
I love the KOM's for the newest "girl" 
So, when I saw HER, I squealed a little LOL 
Next is.....
This last card is what I had left over after stamping out all the images from the KOM, so I just used them...the scale is a little off, but...IDC LOL
I hope you have enjoyed this months hop...
