Happy Friday Friends!!

My Friends with Flair that is!! 

Today is a great day because we get to visit the many blogs of the very talented Unity fans as they share their creations with us.  To start from the beginning, just visit the Unity blog for the list of today's participants!!



So, remember how a couple of days ago I told you that I gave myself a personal challenge to work my way through all the SCS Sketch Challenges skteches?  Well today I have another one for you!

The sketch for my card today is Sketch Challenge #2 (SC02)!  It also uses this week's Color Challenge (CC252) from SCS (Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal or Bermuda Bay and Hunter Green) and yesterday's Ways To Use It challenge (WT252)  which was to use something NEW on your card. 



My card uses a stamp each from Unity and {ippity} and it was super easy to make.  In fact I was also trying to sneak in today's SCS challenge which was to make a card in 15 minutes, but it actually took me about 20 to complete this!! The focal point is the awesome sticker letters by Colorbok that I found on clearance at Big Lots recently for a buck.  This is the NEW thing on my card!



The Unity stamp used is the cute sketchy flower from the August "08 KOM.  I thought the style of that went perfectly with my DP from SEI.  The {ippity} sentiment stamp, Birthday Wishes is from the Just Wanted to Say kit that you can purchase by visiting my {ippity} sales blog HERE.  The cost of the set is only $13.50 (plus shipping.)


I am trying really hard to increase my stash of Birthday cards at the beginning of the year so I can always have some ready to send out at a moments notice.  This one will find a home soon I am sure!! 

Did you check out all the great benefits for becoming a Unity KOM Club Member?  It is amazing!! Only something that Unity would do!! Be sure to check it out!! If I could only buy one stamp set a month, it would definitely be the Unity KOM!!  I LOVE them all!!  (Hehe... and I have them all!!   LOL!) I just can't help myself!!

Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the FWF Hop!!  May your bucket overflow with lots of cards to give to your loved ones celebrating birthdays!!
