First Friends with Flair Friday!

Say that five times really fast!! Ha!!

Today is the first day that the fans of Unity are sharing with each other their latest and greatest creations! What used to be the Hip Hop Hangover now has a new name and a new twist!! It's called Friends with Flair Friday and one lucky person is going to win 25 random stamps from Unity for leaving a comment on the blog that has the special Flair Blinkie! Have you found it yet??



I guess I feel like I am in need of a vacation because this is the second card that I have made with that theme in mind!


Using a combination of stamp kits from Unity, I created this card to give to someone going on a tropical vacation...

Unity Stamps used: Circle Grid, Vacation, Palm Tree (Time for Travel); Suitcase stack (Hodge Podge of Happiness.) The DP is the new fall collection from Recollections at Michael's.



Unity Flair!

ETA: The Winner has been selected and the comments have been disabled!!

Thanks for all the fun comments!!


When I stamped the grid I used the masking technique and stamped using three different SU ink colors (Blue Bayou, Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip.) This would be nearly impossible to do without my trust Stamp-a-majig!



The suitcases were colored with Prismacolors and blended with Gamsol. To alter the Vacation sentiment, I decided to replace the letter "T" with the Palm Tree. Again my Stamp-a-majig came in handy here too!

Thanks for taking a look! If you didn't come here by way of the blog lists at the Unity Stamp Co. blog then be sure to start HERE so as not to miss any of the Unity talent that is out there!!

Leave me some love!!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with thoughts of a warm sunny vacation on some tropical island!

Looks like I'm in need of a vacation to--cause I'm "all about" your card!!! Love the colors and the stamps you chose to use!!!

Gonna have to go paruse the Unity site--cause I don't recognize a couple of those stamps.......

Great card--of course I always "love" all that you share--and the music you play--Sunday mornings wouldn't be the same without hearing a little Jason Mraz!!! ;-)
