Growing In Unity Day 1: Hope

Happy Monday to you all!  I am super excited to be your Growing In Unity gal this week! I don't know about you, but if your Mondays are anything like mine I can usually use some inspiration to get me through the week. 

Hope is the thing with feathers,
that perches in the soul,
and sings the tune without the words,
 and never stops at all.
 
I love this Emily Dickinson quote and this gorgeous feather from Unity's July Kit of the Month-Beautiful Inside and Out.  The feather is so fun and funky that I got a little wild with my watercolors and Dylusions sprays. 

I added a little bling to finish it off. 

GIVEAWAY:
The wonderful and generous Unity Stamp Co is giving away 2 Itty Bitties of your choice to one lucky commenter this week.  To qualify simply leave a comment on any of my 5 GIU posts this week (M-F) for a chance to win.  I will pick a winner on Monday July 28th.
 
 I am linking this up with the Lawnscaping Challenge: Watercoloring.
 
Thanks for visiting!  I have more Unity creations to share with you this week so I hope you'll stop by each day to see what I have in store!
