Growing in Unity - Day 3!

Good morning, and welcome to Day 3 of my Growing in Unity week.  If you are a returning visitor, thank you and welcome back.  If you are a new visitor - a great big Canadian hello!!

I took a little hiatus from crafting while we moved from Ontario back to Winnipeg, so this week was just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing again.  I really love using Unity Stamps as the images are really the style I go for and the customer service can't be beat!  Andrea rocks!!!

Todays project uses one of the Stamp of the Week - Pumpkin Blossoms and was created for a very special friend who I recently re-connected with when we moved back to Winnipeg.  She is a fellow crafter, so having an 'old' friend who shares my passion has really helped me adjust to the move (it just hasn't made its way into the mail yet).  When I saw this stamp released, I couldn't wait to ink it up and colour it.  Fall is my favourite season, I love the leaves changing colour and the cooler weather, and I tend to go to autumn colours for my cards on many occasions. 


This is another stamp that I have a duplicate of, so one lucky commenter from today's blog post will win this stamp set.  Not only that, but one lucky commenter this week will win their choice of two Itty Bitty stamps from Unity.  But wait, that's not all.....  as mentioned in my previous posts this week, I also happen to have an extra October 2011 KOM 'faith, hope, love.... live by it' that I am going to give away to one lucky commenter this week. 




Before you leave, I want to share a couple more Unity projects with you.  I attended Scrapfest13 at Mall of America a couple of weeks ago, and one of the classes I attended used some exclusive Unity stamps.  Talk about adorable stamps!!


The sentiment on the dog card is a little hard to read since it was stamped on patterned paper, but it says "I like BIG MUTTS and I cannot lie" - how fun is that!?!!

I hope you enjoyed todays projects and come back the rest of the week for more Unity inspiration and possibly some more giveaways.
