Friday Friends With Flair!!

Thank God It's Friday!!

I don't know about you, but it has been one of those weeks for me!!  I've been feeling like a salmon swimming upstream!!  Feeling like I am working really hard, but not sure I am getting where I am trying to get!!

Today is the special day that Unity Stamp Co. fans get to share our Unity creations with others!!  Be sure to head over to the Unity blog for the complete list of today's participants and hop from blog to blog and be ready to be inspired!!

Be sure to keep your eyes out for that hidden 
Flair blinkie for the chance to win 25 random Unity stamps!!


The card I have to share with you today is my CAS challenge card for this week's CAS challenge at SCS's.   The challenge this week is to be inspired by fellow DT member Alanna's card shown HERE!

And here is what I did with it...


Pairing Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl DP with Unity's spool of thread from the Super Sweet & Stuck on You Stampin' Store Kit, I created this thank you card.  The sentiment is actually slightly curved in the kit, but I was able to straighten it out on my acrylic block.


I stamped the image three times and colored the spools with Copic Markers and then wrapped each of the spools in coordinating colors of thread that matched the DP.


I stamped the image again three times so I could then color three of the hearts with red Copics.  Then I slipped them underneath a few of the pieces of thread on each spool.  I added paper piecing to the outer edge of the Kraft paper.


I have one other card that I shared earlier this week that I  hope you got to see...


This card was created for an Earth Day challenge that I hosted for the Dirty Dozen/ Dirty Dozen Alumni.  To read more about the details about this card, please visit my blog post from earlier this week 



One last thing...

We hope that you will be joining the {ippity} chicks 
for the VSBN Weekend this weekend 

The fun begins on Friday at 4pm EST.  Eva, Lisa and I will all be hosting challenges this weekend with the help of Heather, Maria and Eryn!  Please come by and check out the challenges... it will give you guys a great chance to scrapbook with your Unity and Ippity scrapbooking stamps!!

Have a wonderful weekend and may your bucket overflow with plenty of time to play with paper  and ink!
