Growing In Unity - Day 5

Hello!
This week has gone by so fast! I can't believe it is my last day as your GIU girl. I'm sad. I would like to thank Unity Stamp Co. for giving me a chance at sharing my projects with all of you. I'm working on building up my confidence in sharing my projects with others, especially those I do not know. Also, I would like to thank them for creating the Unity (Show & Tell) fb page. At times I do share a creation or two, sometimes I enter the challenge, but one wonderfully fantastic thing is that the fb group is like a group of long, lost friends. No snarky comments, lots of encouragement and inspiration. It's as if we are one big family and a lot of that comes from Angela and the love in her heart that she so willingly shares with us all.
If I had to pick a favorite project from my GIU week, I would have to pick this one. I just love this kit and it's so happy. This kit has endless possibilities!
I used the So Glad Your Were Born kit.
Birthday Gift Card Holders!






The paper is from a DCWV stack. I'm sorry I didn't measure anything. I just used my judgement on cutting the paper large enough for a gift card to fit and the inside pocket to be adhered to the inside so the gift card would fit. Images stamped with black Memento, colored with Prisma color pencils, then fussy cut. Before adhere the DP to the card stock, cut a piece of ribbon approximately 10 inches long, adhere it to the base, then cover with DP. For the inside pocket I used a piece of card stock and trimmed it to fit the holder.
I just think these are adorable and can be made for any occasion!

2 prizes are up for grabs just visiting my blog every day this week and leaving a comment. Remember, you must leave a comment. Unity Stamp Co. (The bestest EVER!) has generously donated 2 grab bags filled with their awesome stamps. How great is that???

And please visit my GIU partner, Amy Martin Jones at The Tigers Haven. Amy also has 2 Amazing Prizes to give away from Unity. Amy, thank you so much for your encouragement this week!

I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend. We are heading to our cabin in the mountains. Fresh mountain air and camp fires are greatly needed. Usually I pack a bag full of stamps and all of the accessories. but this weekend I'm only taking my new Chameleon Markers and the coloring cards that came with them. They are a little intimidating to use, especially since one marker can create so many color shades. I'm going to pop in a few Stones CD's and practice my coloring and shading. 
The Rolling Stones are my absolute favorite! My son's too! At the age of 2 when most toddlers are learning the Alphabet song, mine was handing me a Stones CD asking to hear "Angie" He would look at me, hand me the CD and ask, "Mom-Mom, Angie, peas." We surprised him with tickets a couple of years ago for his birthday. The video is a little long, the whining puppy is annoying, but Danny's reaction is priceless and well worth the wait. The video can be seen right here.

I would love it if you would become a follower of my blog. Sometimes it just may be a boring read and sometimes it just may be like WHOA! What???

And Petey says, Thank's for all of the kind words you have been leaving on my Mommy's Blog!

I hope you really like the projects I shared with you this week. I really enjoyed sharing them with you!

Lots of Hugs!
Danny & Petey's Mom
