Unity Stamp Co. is Hopping with Authentique!!!

When Unity Stamp Co. announced that they were going to be teaming up with Authentique as a co-brand, I was so excited. Authentique is one of those companies that has a style that simply causes me to drool with the beauty of their lines.  So you can guess that I was a bit excited when I learned that I would get to Hop with them!! Whoohooo! If you haven't been hopping, you need to head on over to the Authentique blog (link below.)
