Day 1 - Growing in Unity all week long!



This is my week of Growing in Unity! I was actually going to just start on Monday but then figured what the heck! I have stuff to share!

In case you don't know what Growing in Unity is all about it's a way for those who love Unity stamps to share their Unity creations and be in the spotlight for a week. This was started a long time ago and recently passed on to me to organize and I am so happy to be a part of it. If you want to be a part of the fun check out this thread in the Unity SCS forum for more details.

Today I want to share with you a set of Clean and Simple Christmas cards. It's never too early to get started with Christmas cards! I shared this in the SCS gallery but didn't blog it and thought this would be a great time for that.

I used an oldie but goodie Unity set for this one called Bitty Christmas Tags.




This is the box a clear plastic box which I decorated to match.

Now here are the cards inside:





Aren't these the cutest?

While I am sharing a card using the Bitty Christmas Tags I thought I'd pull out this card I made a long time ago, August of 2008 to be exact!



I remember loving how this turned out then had it featured on the Unity blog which was very exciting!

Off I go to finish some other things I have working. I am attempting to stamp on canvas! I was inspired by the lovely Angie Blom who used a cotton canvas drop cloth from Home Depot. I had to pick one up, I think mine is a little different from the one she got but I'm making a go with it.

Be sure to swing by all week for a chance to win a Unity Kit just by leaving a comments. I will select a random winner and announce it next weekend!

If you are looking for a challenge be sure to swing on by the Unity Challenge forum for the newest Unity Addicts Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Well that's all for now!
