An October Afternoon Kind of Evening

Please scroll down to see my post with the 
New Release Whimsie Doodle Stamps
 
Happy Friends with Flair Friday!!

I am so happy that it is Friday, because I am off call.  And since today is one of the only four days I get off for the whole month of March I plan on making it special.  And I can't think of a better way to start my day then by visiting the blogs of 50 of my favorite Unity Stamp Co. Friends!!  If you want to hop along with us, then go the the Unity blog for the whole list of blogs and be prepared to be inspired.

So last evening I had a great time playing with my Unity stamps and some October Afternoon.  While at CHA I picked up some paper samples of both the two new lines released by OA.  One is called The Thrift Shop  and the other is called Fly a Kite.  They gave out 3 x 4 inch samples stapled together in little packs.  They are the perfect size to use for some cards!! And can I just say that I am LOVING these new lines!! I will definitely be getting the new packs!!

 The card I made uses some paper from the Fly a Kite line and another sketch from SCS.  Today's sample uses SC24.  It worked perfectly to use paper scraps on...


The Berry Good Life Unity stamp set (which is only for purchase through a retailer right now) was perfect to go with this strawberry paper from OA.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto my Kraft card base and then pieced the strawberries that I colored with Copics

 The basket of strawberries was also colored with Copics and then popped up on top of the paper strips.  I added the three blue contrasting brads for more color and to repeat the circular elements on the DP.


Thanks so much for taking a look at my blog and please keep scrolling down to see my Whimsie Doodle Post for today!
