bee-lieve me...

yup, 'bee-lieve' me...when I say that I have missed these fun hops lately!  Life has gotten in the way of my fun, and I have been so exhausted in the evenings...well, I won't bore you with my life, so let's get on with my card that I was able to relax and make.

I have been inspired by all the Unity fans who have been using some older sets (the kind we have to dust off) and have not been inked up lately. I'm so tired, that I can't even think of who they were, so please know that I 'thank everyone' for the inspiration!
This is for the Unity Addicts challenge UAC15, which is black and white with a pop of color...so I chose yellow to be my color and played with my Unity-Everyday Adorable set:
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: Unity-Everyday Adorable
C/S: My Mind's Eye-Meadow Lark, SU-Basic Black, Neenah-Solar White
Ink: Memento Black, Copics-Y11, Y15, Special Black 110
Accessories: SU Crushed Curry Polka Dot ribbon, Kaiser Craft Black Pearls, Black Spica

Thank you so much for buzzing by, and enjoy the bee-utiful inspiration from everyone on this hop!

p.s.  did you notice...somehow along with the way of trying to update my blog, I have lost my 'signature' that automatically appears at the end of each post...hmmm...I'll have to look for it later. {yawning}

Love your take on the blk./wht challenge! So cute! I know what you mean about missing all this when real life gets too busy. My summer was CRAZY and now that the busy-ness is over I am feeling a little under the weather...BUT last night I got uninterrupted time in my craft room and it felt SO good! Crafting really is good for the soul! Welcome back!
