Friends with Flair Trio

     Hi everyone!  Sorry I have been missing for the last couple of weeks, but the 31st, I was in the labor room with my DD, and last Friday, I was still away cuddling the sweet little guy.  Since I won't be able to post next Friday, I just had to get a few cards posted for this weeks FwF.  If you would like to link up for a chance at a prize, be sure to visit the Unity blog!

 
     My first card uses the new June KOM called "Love The Little Things".  I found a large scrap of this pink and brown polka dot paper from Wild Asparagus, a digital image of a vintage Spring tree, and some paper doily pieces laying on my desk.  After moving them around a few times, I stamped the bird and sentiment with Memento ink, and colored the bird with Copic markers.  I cut it with SB Labels Two dies, and fussy cut the sentiment.  sponging was done with SU! inks, and a button, twine and flower was added.

This card will also be entered over on the OWH blog for the mid week throw down "Things with Wings".


     Card two is using the pretty dress form from the KOM.  I also love the fancy medallion, which I think made a great background.  The designer papers are from My Minds Eye, coloring is done with Copics, and a Viva Décor pearl pen accented the medallion.  The dress form was cut with a SB scalloped rectangle die. Sentiment is from A Muse.

 
     Card three, also used My Minds Eye papers, images form the June KOM, leaf trim from May Arts, and coloring with Copic markers.  The sentiment embellishment was created with SU! products and twine.

     The images in the new KOM are such fun to color, and create with!  Please be sure to check out the wonderful designers, and leave some sugar.  Yes, you can also be a winner with a comment!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

Congratulations. Fun times ahead for sure. These are beautiful designs. So much pretty detail. :)

Julie Short said...

Oh Mary Anne these are truly delightful! The vintage feel with slightly brighter colours worked a treat. Your first is my favourite probably because we have been rescuing a fledgling that is a little lost out there in the garden at the moment!

Miwa said...

Becky said...

All three cards are wonderful, love the background trees with the bird, the medallion with the dress, and those pretty fussy cute flowers with the webbing. Girl, when you get busy, you get busy!!!
Isn't becoming a Grand just the most fun! Little Brian is so lucky to have you for his Grandma, enjoy him, they grow so fast.
