GIU Day 5

Well, here we are at the end of my Growing in Unity journey this year. I hope I've been able to kickstart an idea or three for you or just given you a smile along the way. It's been a great week for me and I appreciate you joining me.

My final card is a bit more ripply than I'd like but it's a great way to enter a hot summer weekend.

Knowing the image and sentiment don't exactly mesh, I plan to add a note inside to the effects of "...or at least make limeade!" Though the glass image was stamped and colored on vellum, I helped the image pop more against the background by stamping it again on white paper, fussy cutting it, and taping it directly behind the image on the vellum. I found that the glass vanished too much into the background without doing this.

Again, thanks for joining me this week and don't forget to comment on all of the week's posts to have a chance to win a grab bag of Unity goodness. If I can find your email address in/from your comment, I'll send you a note as well as posting a winner notice here on my blog in the next few days.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ingredients: 
Stamps: Live Half Full, When Life Gives You Limes
Coloring: Watercolor pencils, Tim Holtz Distress & Momento ink
