Growing in Unity, Day ONE

Morning all!  Sorry to have been dark all of this past week but between a sinus infection (better than the cracked tooth I THOUGHT I had- who knew they'd feel the same?!), a kid with out-of-control allergies, a planned vacation which turned into a cancelled vacation and a yard sale instead, and getting ready to post a project a day this week, I didn't get much in the way of posting done.  HOWEVER, this week I'll be posting a project using Unity and/or ippity stamps each day as part of my Growing in Unity (GIU) week.  At the end of the week, I'll draw a name from all of the comments and that poster will win 2 Itty Bitty stamps of their choice from Unity so don't forget to comment!

For today, I made a card using the "Brave Boots" Itty Bitty set.  This set was created with Melody Ross from the Brave Girls' Camp fame.  I think that's something I need to add to my bucket list actually- making it to a Brave Girls' Camp.
Don't forget to drop back by tomorrow to comment again- you may be the lucky winning commenter this week!

  1. Jen,
    Gongrats on being the GIU for the week! How exciting, and busy your going to be!! But yay for us we get to see a new card every day! I just love your boots card! And the sentiment is cute, it makes me want to go camping, since it's summertime and all! Sorry about your tooth! Stay crafty my friend!

  2. You've sure had a rough go of it - things are certainly looking up now! This card is adorable. Love the color choices and your coloring and shading is very pretty, yet rustic, perfect for the image.

  3. Hey Jen, your card is terrific. Love the color choices with this set. I have this set, but have only managed to ink up a sentiment or two...LOL! Glad to hear you are on the mend with the toothy sinus infection!
