Another Friday.... Boy They Show Up Fast!

     It's time for Friends with Flair, and here are a couple of cards I made this week with the new Unity Kit of the Month, called "Let Love Grow".  Every month I say "Oh, what a pretty kit", but this month is amazing!  Anyway on to my cards.

 
     Card one is this pretty seed packet and sentiment.  I used papers from the Authentique Carefree Bundle.  Stamping was done with SU! Poppy Parade.  For embellishments, I used twine, Prima flowers, gems, and a large beige brad for the turned down corner.

 
     My second card uses the haliquin stamp on my background, and the ink well and sentiment on my panel.  Papers are scraps, with inks being VersaMagic.  I also added Prima flowers, buttons, dotted ribbon, and a piece of die cut flourish from Cheery Lynn.


     That's it for now.  We are expecting a couple more fast hitting snow storms over the weekend.  Brrrrr!  Everyone stay warm, and don't forget to check out all of the other creations linked up for Friends with Flair.  You could win a prize!

Mary Anne,
I can not believe I'm the first one in! LOL I'm glad your computer is still working. Love these two cards most of all the poppy one because of the color. Your new kit looks like a winner.

I don't know where you get your ideas for cards, but each one is so unique and has an incredible theme! I love the seed packet card as it puts me in the mind of spring.........in spite of the forecast :) NJ! Stay warm and have a super weekend!

These are both beautifully done, Mary Anne! If I didn't know better, I'd think that you were wishing for spring, with seed packets, and soft colors! lol... We're supposed to get a few inches next week too. Bah.... Have a good weekend!

Maryanne, I'm a couple of days behind in commenting, I apologize for that but I have to tell you these two cards are just stunning. I am not a total fan of the Poppy Parade, but you may have turned me around. It is the perfect color for that seed packet and it's surroundings. Your second card is just beautiful and I love the color scheme. Stay warm and out of the storm path. We are getting 3-6 inches today and I have already seen the first 3 inches this morning.
