Rainy days in June...Unity Hop

Hi everyone!

It's been a dreary, rainy couple of days here in Cranbrook.....
not exactly summertime worthy.
The upside - perfect weather for curling up indoors and creating!

Our new June {be inspired} challenge just started a week ago...

And with all the "indoor" weather around here, I had time to play along.
I used the color inspiration to create a couple cards:

Grow Through Dirt

Many Wishes

On the first card, I also used the new sentiment kit {hello thank you}
created by our very own Lisa Arana!

Besides playing along with the challenge, I also created this masculine card recently....
I love how it turned out...simple but just so "me"!

Missing You Dearly
