Friends with Flair Friday!

Hi there Unity friends!!  How are you doing on this wonderful Friday?  I am so happy that it is that special day of the week when we all get to share our Unity creations with each other.

Since I consider you guys my friends, I am going to ask a favor of you at the end of my post.  I am going to need your opinion on something. But  I will get to that later!

The card I am showing you today might be given to my husband for our 1st anniversary which is this Sunday.


Do any of you find it difficult to make masculine cards?  I sure do.  So I am always afraid that the stamps I choose are too frilly for a guy, or I have a hard time finding embellishments that aren't too feminine!



My card today uses many Unity and even one {Ippity} stamp.  The "It's Love" stamp, and the Months and Day strip stamps come from Unity's November Scrapping kit


The "Celebrate" stamp is from the April 09 KOM.  The "simply be who you are" strip is from the November KOM and the Love words collage is from the {Ippity} Because of You" set.


The martini glass was cut out of Designer paper from Creative Imaginations twice and layered onto the card with pop dots.  The black strip of DP is from BG's Eerie paper pad collection.  I had a happy accident of sorts when I dropped my ink pad onto the clean white surface of my nearly completed card.  I felt like crying but then realized that I could distress the whole card and probably still make it work, and I ended up liking it even better!

So I need your help!!  Which card do you think 
is better for me to give to my husband??



The Just My Type card that I made last week or today's card???

Thanks for your help!!  I hope you have a great Friday and have fun visiting all our friends with Flair.  Be sure to stop by Angela's blog to get a list of all the great  blogs to visit today.


And if you want to see some {Ippity}, head on over to the {Ippity}blog for a card sample made by me using the Because of You set!

May your bucket overflow with lots of Unity inspiration today!!

i know what you mean about it being hard to make masculine cards, i'm never sure i've made the right choices. while i think both of your cards are beautiful, i think your husband will appreciate the simpler, less detailed design and the clever sentiment of "you're my type."

happy anniversary!!
