All About Me!

This week is all about  
ME
I am doing the Growing in Unity week this week 
AND 
it is my birthday week!

I know I have been away for far too long, but am glad that I had signed up for GIU because it forced me to get a little creative, even though I still wasn't completely feeling up to it!

Leave me some comments throughout this week for a chance to win a prize from UNITY! (Randomly picked at the end of the week)

And, since it IS my birthday week, I am going to go through some of my scrap supplies for a little grab bag of goodies I would like to give away to another commenter! 

Before I show you what I have made to share with you today, I want to give a shout out to my friend  
Her birthday is today!

Okay, on with the show:
I made this card to send to my brother. He has a niece that likes barrettes so I made her a set out of felt and buttons from MARTHA's Etsy Shop.

The background stamp on my card is from Unity's Bella Blvd collection called Bella Doilies. I stamped it on white cardstock and then covered it with some red sparkle tull.

Another card I made to send to my brother is for his Holiday Cards:
I hope he likes them. I love this little snowman (Mr. Frosty {Bella Blvd Itty Bitty}). The sentiment and background snowflakes are from Snowflakes Fall from Heaven.

I feel so behind. I had most of my Christmas cards done at this time last year... and haven't even thought of what I am going to do for my own cards!

Sweet cards! I love your barrettes and that cute snowman too! The doily stamp set is great, and I love the border punch you used to embellish the snowman card.
Looking forward to seeing your GIU creations all week, and a happy birthday to you also!
