Growing In Unity 2013 - Day 1

How fun is this?!!!
 
I always like to sign up for Growing In Unity for the last week in August...
That is because, this is my birthday week.
Actually, my birthday is on Sunday (Sept. 1),
so I may just take TWO weeks this year!
 
Here is my little project for DAY ONE:
 
 
A birthday invitation for my SIL's little sister!
I used the adorable bike from a Past Kit of the Month.
 
 
I was asked to make some invites to put on the neighbor's doors with all the info.
I thought these turned out adorable!
 
I thought I'd also share a card I made with little homemade monsters:

 
 The Monsters are bread tags that I added google eyes to.
The twine is from my shop.
 
The great Birthday Sentiment is from Unity's ... The Right Words.
This is one of my favorite sets. Great sentiments!
 
Today is just ONE of FIVE, so make sure to come back each day to see what all I have created using Unity Stamps.
 
AND, if you desire, leave me a comment EACH day - it will give you a chance to win TWO itty bitty's of your choice!
 
-----
 
On a side note...
We just got back from our yearly family vacation!
So much fun!
 
Here are a few pictures of the trip!

I love your invitation & your card. Didn't you thoroughly enjoy San Antonio? We took a friend who came to visit back in June that had never been to Texas. I think she enjoyed it. I hope to be able to visit your site all 5 days. Hugs~Patti
