GIU Day 1 - Win a Unity Grab Bag

Hello.  Welcome.  I am very pleased and excited to be Growing In Unity.   This means that every day this week I will be sharing a project featuring Unity stamps.  It also means that there is a chance for you to win a Unity Stamp Company Grab Bag!  I have two to give away!!  All you need to do is leave a comment on each of my posts this week and on Monday I will draw two lucky winners.  And if that isn't enough, if you pop over to Lisa's blog, she is also Growing in Unity this week, and she also has two grab bags to give away!!!  Hey, don't forget to leave a comment before you hop off!!  Here's my card for today.....



I made this birthday card for my nephew last week.  He has a boston terrier so I knew this would be a winner.  I stamped my panel with Unity Chickenwire Background using brown Archival ink.  I added a blue distress ink wash and spritzed with Midnight something Dylusions spray.  Then I added some gold splats by flicking my Pilot marker pen.  I stamped and embossed the dog from Lucky Dog, fussy cut him and added him to the card using one of those spring-y-ma-whatz-its.  Love how he wobbles, but getting him in the envelope was a challenge!!  Glad to report he arrived safely.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to leave me some love for your chance to win some lovely Unity stamps, and do hop over to Lisa for more chances!  I'll be back tomorrow.  See you then.  Hugz
