Growing in Unity - Day 3



Welcome back to Day 3 of my guest designer week with Growing in Unity.  I'm having so much fun breaking out some of my Unity Stamps to create some cards this week. 

My family has a lot of birthdays coming up next week.  I thought this card would be fun for one of those days - because yes, it really does suck getting old! 

The sentiment was a little long for the area I had "allotted".  Instead, I colored half the words and stamped it, then repeated with the other half of the sentiment.  The lollipop was stamped on watercolor paper so it would be sturdy enough to cut and wrap with a piece of cellophane (actually a wrapper from a stamp set - upcycling :-) )



Recipe:
Unity Stamps - Sucks to Get Old
Crate Paper - The Pier: Sunscreen

Simple Stories - Urban Traveler: Grey Concrete
American Crafts - jute twine

Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win 2 Itty Bitty Stamps of your choice.  At the end of the week, I'll choose 1 lucky winner from all the comments during the week to receive 2 free Itty Bitty Stamps from Unity Stamps

If you missed my previous Growing in Unity projects, you still have time to comment:
