Friends with Flair

Time for a Friends with Flair and once again I used a Get Sketchy Sketch for one of my cards.




The sentiment is from Unity and this is also for the Unity Challenge - hearts.

 I also dug out some Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park and of course some fun Unity stamps the image and sentiment are from the Going Retro set.  I used the ledger background along with this image that I paper pieced.  The label is one of the new Scrap-Mart Exclusive Spellbinders ones.  I also used the Tea Time background to stamp a pattern on her dress.

Be sure to start at the Unity Blog so you can see what everyone has created for you this week.

Oh and yes you found it!  I have the blinkie this week! Be sure to comment for your chance at the free stamps.





Unity Flair!

I found your blog by accident actually. So glad I did! I have really enjoyed it. Love both of the last 2 cards you created. As everyone has said - two different styles and both are equally lovely in their own way. Think I may be partial to the last one - I'm a layer girl! lol I love Unity's idea for their blinkie, btw. So cool to give us a chance to win! I don't know anyone who doesn't love Unity Stamps - something for everyone, that's for sure! Thanks and have a blessed weekend!
