FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY ARE GROWING IN UNITY

I thought I would make a Valentine for today's Growing in Unity and Friends with Flair Friday.  This is my version of the Hip Hop Sketch #42.  I used some Daisy D Valentine paper that is just so stinkin' cute!  The little cowboys are on one side and the checks are on the other side.  I then used my 2" square punch for the red square and then turned it on its end.  I used a white glitter ring from reminisce to circle the "diamond" and then cut out one of the little cowboys and popped him up on foam dots.  I used the hearts border from the June 2010 kit of the month "Fly Free".  I stamped it kind of messy to make it look like stitching--looks kind of like zigzag stitching, but it is hearts.  Then I used the p.s. i love you stamp from the Ippity set, Love in Return.  Simple and sweet. 

I have enjoyed sharing my cards and layouts with you this week for Growing in Unity.  I stepped in for Noelle, whose daughter had some medical issues -- thankfully she is doing fine now.  You will be seeing her work later.  Don't forget to leave a comment each day for a chance to win some wonderful Unity stamps.  And today is our Friends with Flair Friday so be sure you keep an eye out for the blinkie.   I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. . . . . . . . wait. . . . . what's that I see ???????      

is it a bird?????
is it a plane????
is it Superman????
no. . . .  it's the
BLINKIE!!!
 
Unity Flair! 
Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a grab bag of 25 wonderful Unity stamps.  Enjoy the rest of your hop!

I LOVE the paper you used. I don't know how to do the blinkie thingie. I clicked on it, but it took me back to the general Unity site. So hopefully I'm in the running for the prize....
