GIU - day 1

Hello there and welcome to my Growing in Unity (GIU) week! If you follow my blog at all, you already know how much I love my Unity. :) This week is super busy for me, so I appreciate you stopping in to see my creations. With my two girls having birthdays before Christmas, the Christmas season gets pretty crazy around here; not counting that darn Elf on the Shelf that I have to move every night to a new spot!

Unity will be giving away two Itty Bitty's of the winner's choice to a random commenter on my blog this week, so don't forget to come back every day and leave a comment! If you don't already follow me, I'd love to have you begin. Just click over to the right --->

I went to a stamping class last week and we made a card that I didn't totally love, but I really liked the layout of the card. So I came home and CASE'd the sketch. :) I'd link the original card, but it wasn't blogged and I don't have permission to share it.

I send a lot of cards to Operation Write Home.  This is one for the OWH box; I have been really trying hard to make as many masculine cards as I do feminine cards - and that's tough for me!

Thanks for visiting me! Be sure to come back tomorrow! :)
