TGIF!

     Well, the weekend has finally arrived, for my DD's baby shower!  I have been planning for so long that I can't believe it is finally here!  I was also suppose to go to a local stamp show today, before the festivities begin, but the weather is so poor, that I am just going to skip it.  :(

 
     The card I have created is from Unity's September 2010 Store Kit, called Bold Insight.  I just love that I can grab any past kit and just start making something!  I have been stuck on the color coral, lately.  When Ii found it gorgeous Wild Asparagus paper scrap in my bin, I just had to play with that coral color.  I used Calypso Coral ink, from SU!,  for my images.  My dragonfly is covered in Crystal Effects, fussy cut and popped up.  My little flower punches, are topped off with turquoise brads, and my panel is wrapped with bakers twine.

     I have been going through my 12x12 papers, and cutting the smaller patterns into quads.  I seem to use them so much more, with them being handy.  I also share the quads with friends, so we all have some fun papers!

     So, this is my entry for Friends with Flair.  Please be sure to visit the Unity blog, and show some love for the other bloggers who linked!

     I will also be entering this on the OWH site for the Our Daily Bread monthly sponsored challenge.  Linking up a card can help to defray costs of shipping boxes of cards to our Hero's.  This month the challenge is "Things That Fly".

     Thanks for stopping around, and have a fantastic weekend!
