FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY

I can't believe I'm finally participating in Friends With Flair Friday.  It has been too long!  I spent a few days creating cards to replenish my mom's and my stash.  Of course, I had to use some of the fantastic stamps that Unity has for cardmaking.  To speed things along, I used sketches (card maps) by Becky Fleck - LOVE using her sketches for cards and scrapbook layouts.  I made the card pictured above using a stamp from the "My Thoughts are With You" kit.  I love the vertical sentiment!  The papers are from Bella Blvd., My Minds Eye, and Jillibean Soup, with carstock by Wausau.  The ribbon is by Offray.  This card is simple and fun.
This card features a stamp from one of my favorite series of stamps, "Wit and Wisdom" by Joslyn  I LOVE these stamps and couldn't wait to make a card featuring one of them.  The paper I used is by American Crafts, with cardstock by Bazzill and Wausau.  The ribbon is by Offray  The candle paper is embossed and adds some fun texture to the card.  I used Archival Ink by Ranger on both cards

My local scrapbook store, Cat's Creations Scrapbook in Mineral Wells, Texas, is where the majority of my supplies were purchased.  The birthday papers were actually purchased when she had some sale bins full of paper.  We are so blessed to have a great scrapbook store in our small town.  Lots of people from the Dallas-Fort Worth area drive over to visit our wonderful store.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity goodness.  Go back to the Unity blog and check out the creations by everyone else.  Visit their blogs and leave comments for more chances to win.
