This Life Is Pretty Amazing
Growing in Unity week (GIU) day 5! My last day! And the sentiment on today's cards is perfect for today - As this has been an amazing week. It also reminds me of how lucky I am to have the life that I do - Sure, It has its ups and down, like any, but overall, I've had a good life and am thankful for it every day.
Today's card uses.... yes, you guessed it, Another stamp from the 5/18 Kit Of the Month, (KoTM), Open Sky, Deep Ocean, from Unity Stamp Company. I decided to use the kit every day this week, (Except the first one) because I love it so much! The possibilities with this kit are endless! The stamped image is colored With promarkers. I used green pearls to embellish. All papers are from my stash.
Have you commented on all 5 of my GIU posts this week?! I hope so, because I'm going to be giving away a Unity Stamp Company grab bag to some lucky ducks who've commented every day this week! You still have a couple days, left, to comment, if you haven't already, so get to commenting!
Thank you so much, to all of you who've stopped by this week and commented on my posts! I appreciate it so much! It's such a good feeling when people comment om our expressions of creativity. Thank you, also, to Unity Stamp Company, for the Opportunity to do another Growing in Unity (GIU) week!

Another day in my Growing in Unity (GIU) week for Unity Stamp Company! Day 4! Can you believe it's almost over?! *Sniff* *sniff* It sure has flown by! I'm already hoping for a chacne to do it, again, next year!
I guess you can tell that I'm loving the 5/18 Kit of The Month, (KOTM), Open Sky, Deep Ocean, from Unity Stamp Company. I couldn't resist using another stamp from this awesome kit! This beautiful mermaid stamp is so gorgeous and finely detailed, and she is huge! Perfect for longer cards for those business size envelopes! I knew, ahead of time, I wanted to use this stamp, so I went out and scoured hobby lobby for the perfect paper - I found the pretty blue paper with the gold spalashes, that I used for the main background, The smaller piece of paper is a scrap from my scrap stash And it seemed the perfect pairing, because the print reminded me of mermaid scales. I used foam tape to mount the sentiment, and raindrop shaped skittles, to embellish.
My week is almost over! *Sad face* Tomorrow is day 5! Be sure to leave a comment today, and come back, tomorrow to comment, as well, to be in the draw for your chance at a Unity Stamp Company grab bag!

Wooty Woot and Hooty Hoo! I'm here with another card for you! Today is Day 3 of my Growing in Unity GIU week for Unity Stamp Company and, I admit, I am loving today's card!
Again, I've used another stamp from the 5/18 Kit of the Month (KoTM), Open Sky, Deep Ocean, by Unity Stamp Company. This kit is just full of wonderful stamps! I've used the flower, this time, colored with Promarkers. I've paired it with two floral papers, a scrap of banner print paper and some polka dots. I think it makes for a fun card! All papers are from my stash. I've chosen not to use alot of embellishments on my cards, this week, because I really want to bring attention and focus to the fabulous stamps from Unity Stamp Company - They're gorgeous enough to stand on their own! And, the quality is amazing!
It's hard to believe how fast my GIU week is going by! I hope you've been stopping by, each day, this week, and leaving me some commenting love! There's a Unity Stamp Company grab bage up for grabs at the end of my week! Don't miss out on your chance to win! Leave me some love!
Be sure to stop back by, tomorrow, to see my next creation!

Moonbeams and Gamasol
Hello bloggers! I'm back as a Growing In Unity girl, for Unity Stamp Company, this week,, and today is Day 1! To say that I'm ecstatic, is an understatement, to say the least! It's such a fabulous experience, and such an honor, to have this opportunity! Unity Stamp Company is such an amazing, family owned business, with the best customer service and high quality rubber stamps! Do yourself a favor and check them out! You won't be disappointed!
My first card for this week is/was a total experiment. I fell in love with this stamp, from the 1/18 Kit of The Month, titled Twinkle. As I mentioned earlier, this card was a complete experiment. I've had these Prismacolor colored pencils forever and have never been brave enough to try them, But, I kept seeing all these beautiful cards done with colored pencils and Gamasol, so i finally decided to take the leap, buy some Gamasol and give it a try. I used the pencils and Gamasol to color the image, and to creat my own background. It was an attempt to make a stormy sky. It didn't turn out perfect by any means, but I'm posting ti to encourage others to give it a try. My plan is to keep at it and post future attempts, in hopes to show how I've improved along the way. After all, practice makes perfect, right?
I hope today's card encourages you to jump out of your comfort zone and try something new. And, if you've done some Gamasol attempts of your own, I'd love to see them. Leave me a link to yours so I can check it out! I can always use the encouragement to keep trying!
While you're here, leave me some love in the comments and you you may even win some goodies for commenting! As a Growing In Unity GIU girl, I'm lucky enough to be able to give away a grab bag of goodies at the end of my week. Awesome, right?! To be in it to win it, be sure to stop by every day this week and leave a comment on my project.
