OK, well now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I can tell you a bit about this sweet card/image/digi from 

I printed off this sweet image then colored it with Copic markers to match the amazing (last sheet) of SU DSP...this paper has been stashed for a very long have to use it a some point, right? 
I'm not usually a fan of this type of  ribbon, since it doesn't make for easy mailing and bulky bows.., but if you know me, then you know I usually have ribbon on my cards, so I will end up hand delivering this one (with cookies)  🍪🍪🍪🍪
I hope you're having fun during this hop!!
Comment to win, ok!!

Friends of Unity Blog Hop~ October 2021

Hey there everyone, welcome to Robyn's Nest!!
I am back again this month with my friends and teamies for another inspirational month of Unity stamps!!
Can you believe the September 2021 Kit of the Month??!!!
OMGeeee best kit ever!! IMHO)


Don't you just love this squirrel??
I do, so much!!!
I stamped him out a 4 times
Colored him up with just a few Copics
Then I colored the other 2 and fussy cut out the tree leaves and branches to add dimension
The back ground lattice die is from Kat Scrappiness in Slimline
Up next is that beautiful slice of pumpkin pie, illustrated by our very own Jeanie Marie Hays
I saw this water colored~ how'd I do??

The tiny "blessed" is from the set
Words in Bloom
I cut off the flower...loved it

another close up of this cutie patootie
I had some extra's stamped off so I made a real quick card here
water colored him~ I think he got too "muddy" 🤷
then added some crystal rain drops from Studio Katia, and more "rain" with Nuvo clear drops

I hope you had fun this month and got some inspiration
