Well, it's Wednesday!

Usually the scary day of the week, since my kindergarteners have no special classes today, but with the teachers' meeting after school canceled, hey, things are looking up!

For my Growing in Unity post today, I'm sharing a card I made for the SCS Try a New Technique a little while ago.The technique is called brick wall - here's a link to the tutorial. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/brickwall It was a little time-consuming, but I really like how it turned out.

The Unity stamp is "My, What a Beautiful Tree!" I really do love it. It's really versatile, and I use it a lot. The cardstock is  Coredinations, which I sanded with 120 grit paper. CS is Bazzill, the sentiment is something I had lying around cut and embossed with a Nestie. The button's from Oriental Trading. The image is stamped with Staz-On.

Sorry the picture is so shadowy. It's been a little dreary around here lately.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate comments and links!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
