Growing in Unity!!!!! (GIU) Day 1

Happy Monday everyone!  WOW!!!!  Today really got away from me.  I have had a handful of extra people (my in-laws and a couple of other helpers) at my home for the past week and a half.  We rent out a house next to us and the tenants needed to be evicted and left the place an absolute disaster.  A week of cleaning and repairs and now they have moved on to our house and are re-roofing and painting and I got sucked into all the work today  ;)

So....now that I gave you an excuse for posting this so late :(  Here is my card for todays GIU post.




For this card I used images from the June 2011 Kit of the Month (KOTM).  Unity is an AWESOME company and I love their KOTM club!!!  I stamped the sweet cupcake image using a versamark ink pad onto a small piece of cardstock and then I used my brayer and my Spun Sugar Distress Ink pad to cover the entire piece of cardstock.  The versamarked image resisted the ink.  I cut out a tag using the Preserves Cricut cartridge and layered as so: stamped image; ribbon; tag; patterned paper.  Then a quick stamp of the "a sweet birthday wish" in a white craft ink and voila...a super cute and simple card.

I am so sorry for the quick post but I promise the rest of the week will greet you with more detail!

Don't forget to leave a comment!  At the end of the week I will be randomly choosing one lucky winner to win the choice of one of the following Unity kits :

I like the subtle colors on your card. I also like that you did something "different" with the ribbon. Creative....

cute sweet card. we were landlords for a while, what a disastor, the tenants were a mess, had to do the eviction thing, took 6 mths and the sheriff to get them out and a fortune to fix the place up to sell. never again.
