Growing in Unity - Day 5 - What's Shakin'? and a "I Love My Colors" Inspiration Blog Hop!

I'm a little bummed that today is the last day of Growing in Unity for me.....'sniff, but life must go on.  It has been a blast sharing all my Unity creations with you guys!!  I have truly enjoyed every day this week and getting to know all my new subscribers.  Thanks so much for all the kind words. They truly made my day!

Now onto the card of the day....

I just love this card so much!  I made it to send to one of my friends and I think I'm going to have to make another one for myself!

I used Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6X6 paper pad along with my Unity itty bitty  "What's Shakin'?" stamp set (item #IB-29).  Added a couple of hearts on the ends of my paper strips and waaa-laaaa...the perfect little card for any occasion.

I hope you have enjoyed this week of Unity creations!  I know I have!!  Please make sure to leave a comment below for your chance to win 2 Unity Stamp Sets tomorrow!
