I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

 Hey Everyone...

Thanks for visiting me after visiting Deirdre.

It is an honor to be hopping as a past Growing In Unity girl.  Sadly...I didn't make it in time to be a GIU girl this year :(  I'm so sad.  Maybe I will get lucky for 2017.  Yuck.  Just saying that sounds horrible...2017!!!  Maybe it's because 2016 just started?  LOL.  Anyway...I hope you enjoy my two project I have for you on this hop.

One of my favorite Unity stamp sets is from their All Day Pass set (the tickets).  I cannot remember the name of the chair and umbrella (I can't find where I put it away at) and the flip flops are from Flip Flop Happy.  I stamped those on a shrinky dink sheet to make them into charms.
Next I made a darling card to welcome a baby into the world by using two sets.  The bunny and flower is from the "Little Bunny for You" and the sentiment is from another ADORABLE stamp set "Sweet Elle".
I'm still in the process of making another card using Elle...but I have had to run my hubby to doc appts from a car accident he was in.  He's fine.  Just has pain in his shoulder and collar bone.  (The accident wasn't his fault...thank goodness and no one else was injured)

Next up is Cynthia.  Be sure to leave me a comment to win.  And GOOD LUCK!!!
