Friends with Flair

     It's Friday and time for another post for Friends with Flair.  Please be sure to check out the Unity Blog for inspiration from some totally amazing designers.  Heck, if you add a creation of your own, you may just be lucky enough to win a fabulous prize!


     My December KOM ( Everyday Fairytale) has arrived, and I was excited to stamp a little something using it.  First up is a love card using a sentiment and the book stack stamp.  My designer paper and cranberry card are from Gina K. Designs.  I colored with Copic's, and added twine and a button as accents.


     Next up is a sympathy I needed this week for the family of a sweet, 97 years young lady, who loved her Irish heritage.  The So Sorry banner is also part of this months KOM.  I added a die cut Vivienne butterfly from Memory Box, as well as some vintage shammrock stamps.


     My third and last card is one I made to add to my Operation Write Home box, I just shipped out.  All Valentines need to be in their hands by the end of December....  Phew, they are outta here!  The stamps used on this card are from my grab bag of loose Unity stamps.   I saw the design on Pinterest, and cased it.

     Okay, that is it for me today!  Hope everyone is knee deep in holiday prep.  As for me, it is off to work!  Thanks for visiting.

Gorgeous cards! Your coloring on the books is outstanding! As for your sympathy card, it will bring great comfort. You put a lot of thought into it to honor your friend. She is smiling upon you. You have my deepest condolences for your loss. Losing someone is always hard, but around the holidays makes it even more difficult. Sending you hugs!
