Growing in Unity - Monday

This is so exciting -- I'm the "Growing in Unity Gal" this week!   I can't wait to show you some simple yet fun stamping projects using stamps from the Unity Stamp Company.  I will post each day this week.  Please comment, because each one will be entered into a random drawing for two free Itty Bitty stamps of the winner's choice!

Without further ado, let's take a peek at today's project:


It's made using the "how's it rollin'?" itty bitty stamp set, along with patterned paper and the cute "memo" tab sticker from Fancy Pants.  All the edges are inked with the indispensable ColorBox Chalk Cat's Eye in Chestnut Roan.   I use those ink pads until the sponge is falling apart, and I almost always have a back-up on hand.

These roller skates remind me of the days in the early eighties when my sister & I would go skating.  I even had one of my birthday parties at the skating rink... maybe third grade?  My poor dad broke his leg at that party.  Were you ever a rollerskating nut?   Ever had an injury while skating?

Hope you'll stop by each day this week for more Unity fun, and comment for a chance to win!  :)

Happy Stamping!
