Wednesday Challenge #9!

Today's Unity Customer Challenge is from Lori (ltechler on SCS), and is a 'Recipe Challenge'. We had to use 1) something clear...acetate, ghost shapes, clear buttons, Glossy Accents/Crystal Effects, etc.; 2) Ribbon; and 3) Something from our latest Unity order.

My 'something clear' is the little clear layered flower that I created using my Cuttlebug, flower dies, and the backing off of a package of embellishments (I had to add an extra shim to get enough force to punch through that, and thought I was about to crack my plate!). The ribbon is obvious, I used that black gingham from my stash. The something from my latest Unity order isn't from an order at all! That adorable little bee is actually a stamp I WON a couple Hip Hop Thursdays ago in the Unity be sure to check it out!! The wonderful Miss Angela will post a thread in the forum at 10am CT, (that's 8am on the west coast, or 11am on the east coast), and start the blog hop from the Unity Stamp Company blog.

If you'd like to play along with today's Customer Challenge, be sure to post your creation in the Challenge Thread so we can all see and leave you some love! And be sure to check out the other Unity Junkies' blogs for more creations!

On a personal note, could I ask for your prayers tomorrow? I'm having laparoscopic surgery in the morning to have my gallbladder removed. It's a short, 'easy' surgery, but I'd still love your prayers, and prayers for my family while they deal with a recovering wife/mama! Thank you in advance!! *smiles*

Have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by!
