My Unity Post


     TGIF!  It is also Friends with Flair day over at the Unity Blog.  I broke out one of the past KOM's that I recently purchased during a great sale.  This one is from July 2011, and is called "Better Together".  So many cute stamps, I had a hard time deciding what to play with!

     I was drawn to the yummy ice cream cone and sentiment.  Stamping was done with Memento Rich Cocoa and clear embossed.  Coloring was done with Copics, and I added some Stickles and Crystal Lacquer for texture. My center strip and the little ledger piece are leftovers from Cosmo Cricket.  Prima Flowers, cotton lace, and cranberry pearls are my embellishments.

Papers Used:
Ivory and Soft Sand Pure Luxury card stock
Soft Suede card stock from SU!
Basic Grey from the Oxford Collection

     That's it for now.  West of my area is under tornado watch all evening, so I'm going to keep one eye to the sky.
Hope you all have a pleasant weekend to start out the month of June!

I could go for an ice cream cone right about now :) I love the lace border! I think those tornadoes are going south of us, but heavy storms are due later tonight. I keep accuweather.com on - click on the state of PA and keep clicking to enlarge, and you can see how the weather is moving across the state right into your specific area. You can also click on the top to see it moving in stages too.
