Growing in Unity Day 7 (Giveaways!)

***Please scroll down for my EtsyInspired post***

Hi friends! I hope you all are kicking off a great weekend! It's not really our weekend yet since hubby has to work on Saturdays now. It's kind of a rough adjusting to a new schedule but we'll make it. I don't really know what we have planned for this weekend. Well, I have a general idea. Brady has promised me BIG things for Mother's Day including FIVE chocolate treats so I'm guessing it will be a good one! :)

Welcome back to my last day of Growing in Unity! Awww, can you believe my week is over? How sad! I hope you all have been enjoying my 1 stamp 2 ways series! I really loved doing it!

Don't forget that you can go back and leave comments on each day of my Growing in Unity to be entered to win one of the blog giveaways I have this week! One is hosted by Unity Stamp Co and the other two are provided by me! :D

Ok, so I totally neglected to use something I LOVE about Unity, the Kit of the Month! I used Jan '10 Savor the Journey for these two cards. Again, two ways. I made one feminine card and then a more masculine card.

For my first card, I used the new Unity KOM sketch. This is a really fun sketch! I need to use it again! For this card, I used Bo Bunny Vicki B. Isn't this paper so pretty? I used Nesties beaded circles behind the cute little bird. The ribbon is a really sweet pink crinkly ribbon and at the bottom, I used a border punch.

For my second card, I decided to use Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try for May. I am also entering both these cards in Unity's Monthly challenge which is to use birds. I really wanted to make a BRIGHT card so I broke open my new Basic Grey Life of the Party paper. I busted out my Copics to color this little guy. Fun, right? And I spelled out my sentiment with stickers.

Have a great weekend everyone!
