Neglected FWF

Today is Unity's Friends with Flair.

You can see all participating HERE.

As some of you know, I started a challenge for myself to use my Neglected Unity during 2011 (I started a thread on SCS to post my creations as I make them).

I have a lot of Kits (Kit of the Month and Store Kit of the Month) that have not been used. There are a few images that have gotten inked, but many images get neglected when the new sets come out

...So for the month of January 2011, I am going to ink up ALL the stamps in my January 2009 Store Kit of the Month. (That is my only January Kit).

Here are the cards I have made so far (I only have like 5 more images to use up!):
I made this one for My Husband and my 6th Anniversary.
And because there is a handmade stamp in this set, I also stamped the back of the card like this:
This card had no special purpose... But I like how it turned out and used 3 stamps from the set!
This card was featured by Jimmi on her Sunday fav's! How cool is that!? I made this for my Husband's Grandmother who is having a birthday in January...
Don't tell all the Unity Addicts, but cupcakes are NOT my favorite. In fact, I usually take them out of my kits and sell them off, but for some reason, this one was still in my stash. I must say that I actually like how it turned out!There is a family at church that is in the process of adopting a set of twin boys. The boys are now 5 weeks old and so adorable! I missed the baby shower because my family was sick, but once I am able to get to the store, I am going to go get some really great shower gifts and will most definitely need this card for the present!
I think I will keep it going and do a February kit in February and so on... but for March and April I am gonna have to figure out something different since I don't have a March or April kit... Can you believe it!? Maybe I will work on getting some Ippity kits used or even my scrapbooking kits... I have a little while to decide which I will use! If anyone wants to join me in this Neglected Unity Challenge, you are more than welcome and can post all your projects in this thread so I can share love and support with you in this challenge!

Don't forget to check out Unity's Store since they have a NEW kit of the month for THIS January!

Fab cards, Rachel. I am on a stamp buying freeze! I have so many stamps that it is ridiculous for me to buy MORE! I am allowing myself to buy paper, but no stamps for three months! Do ya think I can do it? I hope so.
I like the idea of picking a kit and using everything in it! You go girl!

Great cards, Rachel! Way to inspire a whole bunch of us! Used a neglected stamp today and thought of you.

hope you're all feeling better! Love your challenge idea in using those stamps. I need to do one for myself as I often skip my stamps when doing layouts. Love all the cards you made.
