Growing in Unity Day 5

Good morning and welcome to my last day of Growing in Unity.  This has been such a fun week and I appreciate everyone who took the time to leave a comment and those individuals  who signed up to follow my blog. Your comments certainly made my day!  Thank you all  so much!  For my final post  I made a male card using the itty bitty stamp set,  Wise guy.




The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye. The owl was  stamped on watercolor paper and painted with watercolor paints.  A  tab punch, a strip of folded paper and a few black pearls to highlight the owl's eyes, completed the card. 


As many of you already know, everyone who leaves a comment this week will be entered into a drawing to receive, their choice of two itty bitty stamps sets from Unity.  The winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon on my blog. 

I'd love to be your {ippity} chick so don't forget to check out the Unity sale this weekend.  To shop with me for {ippity} all you have to do is click on my name and picture under the {ippity} heading on the Unity Website.   Check back again next Thursday, March 8th  for the {ippity} blog hop to view all the new {ippity} releases for March.  Here's a hint- they are really cute! 



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this week and I can't wait to announce the winner of the itty bitty stamp sets.  Have a great day!
