Growing in Unity - Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of my Growing in Unity guest designer spot.  I've had a great time sharing some of my creations with you.  When I was trying to decide what I would do for my final project, I thought about doing a scrapbook page, or an altered art project, but instead I thought a thank you card!  It is a thank you card to all of you for visiting me all week.  I love reading your comments.  They are very inspiring.

Yesterday was the third Thursday of the month.  That is when Unity Stamp issues their {Be Inspired} Challenge.  I loved the look of the card sketch, and I thought it would great for my Thank You card.  I also realized that I hadn't done much coloring on my cards this week (if you don't count coloring sentiments).  So I decided to "make my own" background paper for the card using a stamp and a little ink.  Now, I don't claim to be an expert at coloring with pens, by any stretch of the imagination, it was fun to pretend to be a kid for a while.  :-)

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.  You have until Sunday, at 11:59 pm to leave a comment.  I will announce the winner of the 2 Itty Bitty stamps on Tuesday, May 21st.

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

Cheers!

PS - I would love it if you became a follower.  There are lots of exciting things coming in the future.  :-)

  22. I love your card...I really need to learn how to sew, at least for scrapbooking and cards. The way the paper is pulled up around the stitching is so fun. And you're not alone in the coloring thing...I've been collecting things to color with and try it out every once in a while. ;)
