Growing in Unity...Day 2

Welcome back for another day of Unity goodness! I am so happy to be participating in Growing in Unity this week as it has given me a chance to break out the stamps, use up some paper, create a stash of cards and just unwind. There is just something about everything coming together when I create that releases a little bit of unwanted stress...and there are those days that everything doesn't just "come together" and the stress builds, but I guess that is just an excuse to play a little longer.

I recently stumbled up a great sketch blog (and there are many) Clean & Simple Stamping. I am sure most people know about it and I am not too sure why I didn't discover this sooner! These sketches are fabulous and I can see myself using them again, and again, and again (you get the picture!). I based today's card on FTL75 and used one of my very first Unity sets Pixie Lane. I fell in love with this set when I first discovered Unity because it is just so pretty and so versatile. Case in point with today's card:

I purposely left a sentiment off of the front because it can be used for just about anything. I figured I would add it to my stash and stamp the sentiment inside when I need to use it..of course it will be on my display shelf for a bit before I can part with it.

Don't forget to leave me some love to be entered for a chance to win a Unity single of your choice! I really do enjoy reading all the comments...they inspire me. I will be back tomorrow with some more Unity goodness and hopefully I can finish up my layout in progress to share by the end of the week.

Smiles,

Tracy

What a neat sketch site--thanks for sharing! What a great card, and you're so clever to keep it for later by not adding a sentiment. I need to do a better job of that. Thanks for the inspiration!
