I'm so excited that I was able to get on the list to be a Growing in Unity Gal! Every day this week I'll be showing a Unity project and, yup, there's a prize involved. Every comment on a GIU post will enter you to win your choice of the following Unity Stamp sets: Sending My Love, Bitty Backgrounds, Little Me, Bella Fiori, Homegrown, Hugs & Kittens, Handmade Holiday, Bella Trees, or Imagine It.
(One comment per post please, but you can comment each day to increase your chances)
My first card I have to share was made with a stamp set I had coveted for quite a while: Melody Ross's Brave Girl Boots. Because although I live in Birmingham now, I grew up in Texas and was even in FFA in high school.  I finally bought it last month and then when the Splitcoast CAS Designers had a "state flag" challenge on the Fourth of July, well, I knew what had to be done and I did it:
In other TEXAS FOREVER news, did y'all see that Friday Night Lights got a nomination for Best Drama? Plus Coach and Mrs Taylor were nominated as well. If you have not watched this show yet, what are you waiting for? (The entire series is on Netflix streaming). I may or may not have cried during the last episode. Also Coach may or may not be a screen saver on my Kindle, and I may or may not play the theme song repeatedly in my car when I'm feeling happy.
Stop on by the blog again this afternoon (1:00 Central) to see my Gallery Idol card for round 2 and to vote. CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS, CAN'T LOSE, right?!?!
 FFA used to stand for "Future Farmers of America" but its name is actually "FFA" now. There's your little bit of trivia for today.
 Yeah, I'm totally Texas-ing it up today.
 OMG, seriously, at the end of the last episode? When he tells the team we'll work on that next time? Did your heart just fill up with happiness at that point like mine?
