Growing In Unity Day #4

Hello, friends:}

It's my week of Growing in Unity!! Be sure to stop by each day {April 17-23} and leave some love for your chance to win several prizes!! Become a follower for an extra entry!! Gotta love prizes!! 

Today I am featured over on the Unity blog--ACK! It's so exciting! I love love love Unity!! Be sure to stop by HERE to read my little blurb--but visit there after you read my post:} 

One thing I like to do when creating cards is get inspiration from scrapbook layouts or pages. I was inspired by a page awhile back...and made this card from my memory. I love the three paper rectangles with the stitched fourth rectangle. I also love love love these papers [Cosmo Cricket]. I also LOOOOOOVE my Unity and Ippity stamps that I used! I used Unity's Little Boy {airplane}, Garden Variety {tag}, and Happily Ever After {sentiment}. I also used Ippity's banner {Love In Return}. I just love mixing my stamp sets! I ended up donating this card to Operation Write Home


I also made this fun little wedding favor gift for the Paper Crafts April 2011 Gallery  challenge {wedding projects}. I love the soft colors of the flowers that will grow from these seeds! I made my pocket with kraft paper (using pinking shears on the top) and then I stamped my journal image {Unity} with heather ink {A*Muse Studio}. After it dried, it looked a bit too pale, so I glazed it with my Sakura pen. Then I cut out a window to see the flowers and added a transparency behind the window (which you can't really see--sorry!). I also used my Unity Love Grows stamp set for the sentiment. Added a bit of rhinestone...and it's done:) I am actually giving this to our friends this weekend--they will be celebrating their anniversary! Perfect;) 
And I couldn't let another Limelight challenge go by and not play along!! It's been awhile since I had time--the deadline was extended because Mandy had a baby!! CONGRATS:) I used this sketch to make a get well card for a "deer" friend who had surgery yesterday. I love that little deer {Unity's Believe In Miracles}!! And that bird--yep, I used it on my homemade brad HERE. It's from Unity's August 2010 KOTM, and it makes it perfect for the Unity monthly challenge {birds}. LOVE!! I also used Unity's Heart Times and Small Things Matter Most for the sentiment. LOVE:)
That's it for me today. THANKS so much for stopping by and leaving some love! Your comments make me smile--and they enter you in this week's giveaways! I've got a couple of prize packages, as well as a Unity stamp set, to give away! If you haven't stopped by HERE or HERE or HERE--do so and leave some love for your chance to win!! 

THANKS again for stopping by! LOVE visiting with you:} LOVE Unity!! Be blessed!
