Day 3 of Growing In UNITY!

I am having SO much fun, thank you for stopping by today!
This card makes me happy just looking at it.  It always seems like later I think I wish I would have used a kraft card instead of cream or inked the edges or whatever but I love this card!  Even though I didn't emboss *GASP*  I always emboss!  It is my favorite.  But I really wanted to make the paper look like I tore it out of a kraft colored spiral and I didn't want to embossing to crack and pop off in places.  Sometimes I like that to happen.  I guess this time I didn't LOL  I cut in between each hole so they are really separated.  I have never done that before I will definitely do it again.  The paper stamp is from A Love Beyond Measure, one of my fave sets!  That half doily was a free gift from Unity!  Are you guys loving the free gifts with every order as much as I am?  They are so fun and almost as exciting as the stamps!  I love tearing through the box and finding them!  It was white.  I glimmer misted it and it is so sparkly and beautiful!  All the ribbons are from my stash.  This is such a perfect way to use up tiny pieces of leftover ribbon. 
 

I am scheduling these blog posts in case I go visit my sister so it could be sold out now, but the Photos box is still available!  I LOVE this box!  I have the itty bitty one too!  They are AWESOME on my desk and make me smile every time I reach for something!  The flowers are from a recent Hobby Lobby haul I don't remember who made them I put them all in a jar on my flower shelf.  The bird is from Recollections, I love him!  The alpha letters are by Glitz the turquoise lines made it so I would pay any amount for them!  LOL  Lucky for me Michael's had a 40% off alpha sticker sale!
Here is a close up so you can see everything a little bit better.


I make all of my cards from a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.  I buy A6 envelopes though.  They give me more room for thicker cards and so things can hang off the edge.  A .46 cent stamp still mails them!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Please don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 2 free itty bitty's!!

Noelle, those little banners decorate this design nicely, I think. And that box with the camera looks like it is put to good use. :)

I LOVE images like ledgers and note book papers too. What a cute idea to cut in between the holes so it looks like you tore it out of a spiral notebook...love this!
