Birds, Rainbows and Friends with Flair



Happy Friday Everyone!!

How cool is it that my weeks get to start with an  
{ippity} blog hop and end with a Unity blog hop
Isn't that great??  


So it's Friday which means it's time for the weekly Friends With Flair blog hop where Unity peeps use Unity Stamps to inspire each other!  It's a great day!!  For the complete list of the blogs participating in the blog hop, head over to the Unity blog to get the list!  And don't forget to look for the "Flair Blinkie" for a chance to win a prize!!


I have a couple of cards to share with you today  and both of them use stamps from  


My first card was made for last week's FWF Challenge FWF13 where we were inspired by Lisa's Card HERE!  And it was also inspired by yesterday's Ways to Use it Challenge WT259 on SCS called For the Love of Lace.  Where we were to use lace on our card...

 The sentiment I chose is from {ippity's) Just Wanted to Say set.  The DP is from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry line.  The flower is Prima and the button is from Clear and Simple stamps.


The adorable chipboard bird is a freebie I received while at CHA.  It is laser cut and is made by ScrapFX.  The lace is from JoAnn's.



My next card follows this week's SCS Sketch Challenge SC269.  Here is a picture of the sketch...

 For my card I stayed true to the sketch and used papers from the MME line called Quite Contrary.  Some of these papers can be obtained by getting the paper pack sold for {ippity}  To get this paper pack for free, all you have to do is purchase a complete set of the Winter Release Stamp sets from me and I will throw that in at no additional charge!  :-)


I colored the rainbow and clouds in using Copic markers.

The sunshine ribbon is from the Dollar Spot at Target.  I couldn't resist it and felt it went perfectly with the stamps I chose to use on this card!  I love the touch of yellow it adds!

If you are interested in buying any {ippity} stamps, please visit my sales blog for great pricing!  I have every of the Winter Release sets in stock and even some of the Fall ones too!

Enjoy the rest of the FWF Hop and may your bucket overflow with pretty rainbows and sweet birdies!!
