My Growing in Unity Week!

Hello and Happy Sunday!

This is MY week for Unity's "Growing in Unity" and I'm starting today!  Unity Stamp Co allows Unity's fans to host a week of Unity and {ippity} creations and give away a Unity prize...isn't that fantastic?  
It's usually Monday through Friday, but I'm starting a little early, 'cause I know this week will breeze by...so is that okay with you?

My share today is a card that I made with {ippity} stamps.
First, with one of {ippity's} newest quote stamps:
an itty bitty "Happy are those", by Unity Artista Jenny Suchin
Second, with the scallop stamp from "Party Hat Wishes":
I created the clouds on the background, by stamping the quote on c/s and then cut out the cloud image and used it as a stencil to ink up, with my TH Antique Linen Distress Ink...so what do you think? 

I created this card for two challenges:
Wee Memories 'Final' Challenge #83, which is this sketch above (you have till Jan 20th to participate in Jenny's last challenge...let's make her last challenge awesome!);

and

The Color Throwdown Challenge #174, to use these colors above (you have till Jan 16th at midnight to participate in this challenge!).

So here's how Growing in Unity works:  

  • I will post a Unity and/or {ippity} creation every day this week, with Friday being the last day.
  • From all the comments on my posts through Friday, I will pick one random winner through Random.org.
  • On Sunday, I will post the winner and the winner gets to choose ANY 'TWO' ITTY BITTY'S from the Unity website!
  • Woohoo!  Isn't Unity the greatest?
I'm so excited to be hosting Growing in Unity this week and I hope I have not left out any details that I needed to post!  However, if I did, I will inform you in other posts this week!

Thank you so much for joining me on this fun ride this week!
