Growing in Unity Winner!

First, I want to say how much fun I had with the Growing In Unity week.  All your sweet comments meant so much to me.  Thanks to everyone who visited my blog and left me some love. 

Before I tell you the winner of the two Itty Bitties, I thought I'd post one last card.  I made this one this afternoon for a challenge on the site.  The challenge this week is to use the colors blue, green, and white.  And, of course, I had to use Unity stamps!

It's been snowing here all day, so these tulips make me think of Spring.  It's coming, right?  My fellow co-workers and I are sending a care package to the co-worker that had a knee replaced.  I made this card to send with the goodies.  It used Echo Park For the Record 2 Documented 12x12 papers, Carta Bella white card stock, Unity Stamp Co Tulips and Daisies stamp set, Memento black ink, Strathmore 90# cold press watercolor paper, watercolor paints that I picked up at Michael's -- a starter set for students -- super cheap, and some white ribbon from my stash. I'm going to enter this in Creative Inspiration Paints 'Anything Goes' challenge.

And now, for the reason you are visiting my blog -- to find out whether or not you get to go shopping at Unity!

I used twice. The first time, I had it pick the day (from 1-5).  It picked 2.  Then, I entered in the number of comments on my blog from day 2.  There were 46 comments, and chose #45.  That is Brit K.  Congrats, Brit!  You are lucky on my blog, girl!  I sent you some blog candy not too long ago!  Contact me with the 2 Itty Bitties that you would like. 

I am a guest designer on Wednesday, Jan. 30, on the 3 Girl Jam blog.  Please stop back here on Wednesday, and/or the  3 Girl Jam blog to see the project I made.

Have a great week, everyone!
