Day 3 a day late..........

Happy 2009!!!!!
Better late than never - here is my Day 3 post for Unity All Week.
My personal "theme" for 2009 is SIMPLICITY. I'm tired of the complicated and the difficult and just really want simplicity. This is an altered wooden tag from one of my Unity purchases from this past year. If you are already a Unity customer, you know what these are. If you are not, click here to see a sample. (Then go buy some stamps from them!! I promise you won't be disappointed!)
I have several of these hanging around and thought I would alter one to hang in my office with my motto on it.
The designer paper is some Basic Grey Stella Ruby. I stamped the Distressed Dots Butterflies from Unity September Kit of the Month & the flourish from Unity December Kit of the Month in SU Chocolate Chip ink. The butterflies are in SU Ruby Red, Mellow Moss, and So Safron to match the DP. The hanger is just some pretty brown organza ribbon.
Back later with more.............
P.S. - I just noticed that I will be reaching 5,000 hits tonight!!!! I'll be doing some blog candy to celebrate on Monday - be sure to check back then!!!
