Fresh Idea Friends With Flair Friday all in One!!

Today's cards is doing double duty for me!!

It was my turn to post on the Ippity blog today for the Fresh Idea Friday
so I decided to share my idea with you here too!!

My Fresh Idea for you is to use parts of Store Bought cards that you have been given in the past to enhance your Hand Made cards!

Here is the card that I made using the laser cut out of the dragonfly from a store bought card...


Please visit the Ippity blog to see the Store Bought card and some additional views of the finished card.

The Ippity stamp sets used to make this card are the Where You Should Be set and the Just Wanted to Say set (Two more are still available on my sales blog at clearance prices!!  Check it out!!).  The DP is from My Mind's Eye!

So today is also the Friends with Flair Blog Hop so please be sure to 
start at the Unity Blog
to get the complete list of today's participants!  

Rumor has it there are TONS of prizes being given away today and there is a sale going on all weekend.  
All the details are on the Unity Blog!!

So head there now and enjoy the Friends With Flair Hop!!  
Have a great weekend and enjoy  the 4th of July celebrations!!

Great idea incorporating store-bought cards - now that I've gotten into making my own, I've been keeping my store-bought ones as back-up, but now fear they're just gathering dust.

Love your site!
