Friends With Flair, and Joan's Gardens!

      It is once again time for the Friday, Friends with Flair link up, over on the Unity Blog.  I have really gotten quite a few cards made this week, but I will just show you a couple.


      My first card is one I will use for sending a Thanksgiving wish.  Who would have thought that one sheet of double sided paper and  few punches could create this!  I sure had fun playing!  Here is what I used.

Kraft card stock- Pure Luxury
DP from K&Co Margo pad
EK Success order punch
Assorted leaf punches
Sentiment from Unity KOM 10-12
Gem flower from K&Co.
Ink is Color Box blush rose


     Card two is another playtime creation.  It started with an inked embossing folder, and just happened from there.

White card stock (lots of it)
Inks are SU! assorted blues and old olive
Embossing is the Cuttlebug swiss dot folder
My stamps are from Unity KOM 1-11 (snowmen)  and my Itty Bitty Winter Delivery Tag
Coloring is with Copic markers
Snowflake is MS with a small circle center.
Diamond Stickles and mini brads are my embellishments

      I would also like to enter this card over at Joan's Gardens, where this week we are asked to create Winter Cards.

     My DH is on his way to a job in Baltimore, and just passed fleets of power company trucks headed north.  As this is affecting my family as well, this is the best news I could ever hear!  Still praying for all those who are having their strength tested at this time.  Please, Gov. Christie, get these folks some emergency fuel to keep warm and so they can get to work. The gas lines are 4 hrs. long.  My DD has enough gas to get far enough into PA tonight, so she can fill up and come home.  I see lots of warm food and relaxing in store for my weekend.

Beautiful cards Mary Anne! I love the colors on the first, and the adorable snow scene on the 2nd. I hope your family can spend some quality time with you and leave all the stress behind for a little while as they make their way home. I saw on the news this morning that one man waited in line (overnight) for 6 hrs to get gas, only to reach the pumps and find that the station had run out of gas :( Our strength is definitely being tested! Enjoy your weekend - hugs to your family :)

These cards are just lovely. Your are right, who knew paper and punches could end up so gorgeous. Obviously you did. LOL Your second card is cute as a button. I like the inking on your embossing and your swiss dot now drifts. I'm so happy to hear that you DD will be able to get home to you this weekend. I can't even imagine what they are all going through down there. She and others in the area are in my thoughts constantly. Enjoy your time with them. I also hope your husband travels safe. Talk soon.
