Growing in Unity: Sweetest Day Ever

Welcome to Growing in Unity day three!  Today is my 'feature' day over at the Unity Blog.  There is a rather verbose bio over there... oops, got a little carried away talking about my craftiness... LOL.  I've picked one of my favourite Unity Stamps to use today. My fabulously brilliant friend Jill pointed out to me that strawberries have black seeds (I used this stamp when we stamped together this summer) and I should try that.  I do appreciate being biologically precise, and I will try black seeds some day, but I like the contrast of the white on red.  This goes back to last week's conversation on creative license...


Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the following fabulous Unity Stamp sets!  At the end of the week, I will randomly pick a winner from all of the comments left on my posts this week.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are having a great week.

  8. What a sweet card Glenda! I love the strawberry with the gingham. Not to make things any worse, but I always thought strawberries had kind of greenish seeds :) Of course, creativity is what it is all about and you can make them whatever color you like - I love the white personally.

  26. Do strawberries have black seeds? I thought they were yellow, so your seeds didn't look strange to me--ha ha. I agree with you about creative license. :) Your card is so fun, and I love the bold red against the white. The little ribbon details are great!
