Growing in Unity - Day 2

Hi folks,

Welcome to my second day as the Growing in Unity gal this week.

Today I thought I would share <gasp> a masculine card! Yes, I know we are all big fans of the Angie girls and all the feminine images but did you know that Unity has masculine stamps as well? You betcha!

Do you have "Not Always ... But" in your collection yet? I do!


And here's the cards I have to share with you today featuring this set:





To me the image looks like an old style portrait so I decided it needed to be framed as such. I actually have a couple of feminine images in this style and I'm thinking I'll be making cards similarly styled to these with this sentiment.

Oh - I ALSO have the {after dark} sentiment that goes with this set as well. If you pop back on Saturday (not part of the hop), I'll share the card I made with THAT one!

Now don't forget - be sure to leave a comment on this post if you would like to be entered into a draw to win a grab bag of 25 random stamps from Unity at the end of the week! I have moderation enabled on the blog comments so don't be alarmed if you don't see your comment right away - it will be visible once I approve it!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

I love the vintage look of this card. I think masculine cards are hard to come up with. It is great that Unity has some kits geared towards masculine cards. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.
