Friend with Flair.... Busy Friday!


     Morning!  I just wanted to get my card posted for FwF, over on the Unity Blog.  It's been a bit of a crazy week, with the holiday, kids home, and hubby packed, away, and home early from a trip.  Today I want to share a card that only includes a Sentiment from the November KOM, but was such fun to create!

     I pinned a card, over on Pinterest a few days back, and just had to try making these candles.  You use the Modern Label punch for the body of the candle, and the wing from the Bird Builder punch for the flame.  These are both from SU!  Add some great papers, a few MS branch punches, and gems, and you have a super holiday card!  I am thinking these would make great OWH cards for next year (minus the sparkles).

     Off to do some wrapping!  Enjoy your Friday!

Love It. You are right a great card for next year's OWH Holiday cards. I should be good and do some now to get a head start on them. I'm all talk, I'm sure I won't start now. But it was a good thought. The piercing really added something to your die cut piece. Have a fun weekend now that things have calmed down for you.
