GIU Day 5: ad•ven•tur•ous

Looking for my Friends With Flair post? It's the next one down!

Welcome back to my week of Growing in Unity! Today is my very last day of GIU.  :(

Did you leave a comment on all of my GIU posts for a chance to win 2 (yes, TWO) itty bitty stamps from Unity Stamp Co.? I'll announce the winner sometime Sunday afternoon! Did you miss any days? Just scroll down to the previous posts - I don't want you to miss a chance to win!

It's been a long time since I've participated in any challenges, so this time I decided to play along with Unity's KOM Sketch Challenge. I turned the sketch and took a liberty or two, but I think you can still see the inspiration. I really need to play more challenges!

Stamps: Unity KOM 12/09 (RETIRED) {delightful moments}; ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; prisma color pencils: Non-Photo Blue & Crimson Red
I love hot air balloons. I've only been in one my entire life, but it was sure memorable! But I can tell you that the exhilaration comes in part from the fact that I am terrified of heights. Sometimes I can manage it, like when I feel like I'm secure (ski lifts and hot air balloons are okay); other times I have a hard time forcing myself to go through with it (rappelling and climbing ladders over 4-5 feet off the ground). I am NOT a bungey jumper or parachuter - nope nope nope nope! I'm not THAT adventurous!  :D

Thank you for coming by today! Remember to leave a comment on all 5 of my GIU posts for a chance to win 2 itty bittys! And as a special thank you, I'd like to offer a discount code for my Etsy shop. Just enter the code GIU30 for 30% off your entire order. I have lots of ippity kits stocked and ready to ship!

Cute card.... love your cheery colors and paper choices!
I'm afraid of heights so passed up on my one opportunity, many years ago, to go up in a hot air balloon.
Great GIU week! I've enjoyed visiting here and seeing your cards!
