FWF: Growing in Unity Day 6 (Giveaways!)


Hi friends! Welcome to my FWF and GIU Day 5! Thanks so much for joining me today! I am so looking forward to this weekend! I'm hoping that Mother's Day will have a few treats in store for me. As of right now, I know none of the plans. Let's hope there's some fun in store! :)

Don't forget that you can leave comments on each day of my Growing in Unity posts to be entered to win the giveaways I have going on! One is sponsored by Unity Stamp Co and the others are from me! :)


Today, my pal Kate told me I should work with an Itty Bitty. This struck me as a great idea since I barely ever touch them. Aww, poor neglected stamps! She also told me to make a couple Father's Day cards. It sounded good at the time until I figured out I was making two masculine cards. Gah!

Ok, so this is indeed one stamp two ways but they aren't as different as my previous days. But I do what I can. I tend to make masculine cards very clean and simple since that's what my hubby likes. The first one, I decided to make with just plain white paper. The patterned paper on the mushroom is Jillibean Soup from the Dutch Mustard Soup line. I was really trying to make things bright and fun!

My next card is made with Kraft cardstock. I thought it would be fun to make a card where there was a couple more plain mushrooms and then one fun one. I wish I had made a longer card now. Maybe some other time. The patterned paper on this one is My Mind's Eye Lush 2.

Have a great day everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all my mom friends! And don't forget to check out the Unity Blog to see everyone participating in today's Friends With Flair!
