Thanks for joining me for my week as the Growing in Unity stamper! This is my third year as a GIU stamper if you want to see my other projects, click here.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment to be entered in the drawing for 25 random stamps & come back each day this week for a different creation from me!


Tomorrow is my partner’s (Edward) birthday!  One of the things I love about him is his knowledge and interest in color.  I was working on colors for our new home and had chosen gray and green.  When I asked him about additional colors he immediately suggested purple!  We love color and are going for a Boho Chic look…so, perfect.  I created this card for him using this color palette.  We are supposed to close in mid-April…cross your fingers. 🙂

This week I will be posting a Copic marker holder (stamped with my favorite Unity stamp), Love Bud, Thanks for That Thing, an Art Journal page, and a masculine birthday card.
