My Friday FwF Posting!


     It's Friday, no clouds in sight, and all seems right with my little world at the moment.  Hope you are doing well, and have a super weekend planned.  As I did not get to play last Friday for the Friends with Flair, hop along, I really felt like something was missing.  This week, I was able to complete one Unity card, and hope to have some playtime this weekend.

     For today's card, I used the May KOTM, called Love in an Instant.  I won a big lot of Memento markers on Ebay this past week, and I thought the collage stamp with the bird would be fun to use them on.  I started with a base of a grey/taupe card stock from my stash, and added in designer papers from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection.  The memento markers I used were: Lady Bug, Pear Tart, Tangelo, and Danube Blue. For embellishments, I used half of a paper doily, a 3D flower from K&Co., and corner punches from SU!

     The prizes for the Unity challenges are to die for!  I just received my prize for winning Sketch of the Month, and let me tell you, it is jaw dropping, amazing!  Come play along!  It's easy, it's fun, and you get to be inspired by some of the greatest talent out there.  Have a fantastic weekend!
