Here is a little something about Angel:
"My name is Angel Wilde and I am a wife, mom and new grandma! I've been stamping and getting inky for over 15 years! (That is a LOT of stamp supplies, believe me!) I feel blessed to be able to stay at home and stamp the day away if I want. My style is mostly a clean simple design, but sometimes I like to layer it up and use pretty embellishments to make a "work of heart". I first discovered Unity this January (while looking at stamping blogs) and immediately asked my husband if I could commit to $31 a month. He said okay and I was thrilled. I am completely enthralled by Unity Stamps. There hasn't been an image in any of the Kit of the Month kits that I have not liked. I LOVE the fact that there is a variety of adorable images AND practical as well as fun sentiments in each kit. The fact that they are quality red rubber, but don't come with a wood block that eats up my craft room space is an extra benefit that I especially like!
I've been using Unity stamps more than not this last month. I would love for you to visit my blog and see some of my projects! And while you're there leave a comment to win a stamp set that the gals at Unity so graciously allowed me to give away!"
Here is a fantastic card Angel created this week for her GIU:
Be sure to swing on by Angel's blog every day this week and leave her some love. At the end of the week she will pick a random winner from all her comments to win a Unity Kit!
On another fun Unity note have you been over to "My Unity Place" yet? If not be sure to swing on by for some Unity goodness, chatting, eye candy and tutorials!!
Well that's all for this week!

It's time for some pretty Unity cards and some other stuff!
Here are some cards from our
Unity SCS Gallery!
now let's talk FOOD :)
I just had some delicious
strawberry pancakes from the Pocahontas Pancakes
at the beach and I do think it's made me hungrier, LOL!
strawberry pancakes are my very favorite breakfast!
I always have to ask for extra whipped cream though...they never give enough.
I got to have another favorite thing of mine on Friday night...
Outback cheese fries!
I honestly think they are one of the most delicious creations EVER!
Sooooooo....have I made you hungry?
I'm off to watch Due Date...again!
It's SO FUNNY!
and RD, Jr. is my #1 very favorite actor so I could watch it 100 times!
hope you have a FABULOUS day!

I’m delighted to be the Growing in Unity Gal this week! I had such a wonderful time as a Guest Designer for Unity in December and January that I just had to come back and share more cards inspired by Unity’s beautiful stamps! I love using Unity to create because the stamps are high-quality, the images are large enough to fill a card and I’m inspired just by looking at them. If I need to create a card in a flash, the first thing I reach for is my little package of printouts of all the Unity stamps I own. I flip through the images looking for ones that might complement each other and then choose a sentiment or several sentiments to combine. It’s pretty simple!
Ippity Design Team member Lisa Arana and I have also teamed up for Take Two this week. We are featuring one Unity or Ippity set each day all week long and we’d love for you to stop by both our blogs each day to see our different takes on the same stamp set! Not only will I be giving away the Growing in Unity prize at the end of the week, Angela Magnuson has generously donated one of each of the stamp sets Lisa and I are showcasing!! Lisa is also giving away two of her amazing watermarks which I absolutely love and use myself. Please stop by my blog and Lisa’s blog every day this week for a chance to win one of eight incredible prizes and be inspired by Unity!
For Take Two today, Lisa and I are featuring Birdie Duet and here’s one of my cards using this set. The main image and one of the two sentiments offered in this set are the focus of this card. In the background, I stamped the clouds background from Take Time To Laugh and further back behind the espresso layer, I used the butterflies from Picture Perfect on both the yellow (sun) and green (grass) strips. You can find the complete source list on my blog as well as a second card using Birdie Duet but in a completely different style. Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
