Hard to Believe it's Friday

     How did it happen?  Friday already?  Are the weeks zooming for you, also?  There have been some great sales over at the Unity store.  I picked up a few new things.  Just a few, now.  I love the new snow peeps.  You must go check things out!

 
     Today, my Friends with Flair card uses the witch on a broom and the leaf background stamps, from the August KOM from Unity.  Some might say that this is a great self portrait of yours truly.  I used my favorite Versafine ink to get that deep black image. My card stocks are onyx black, soft sand, and sweet corn. The die cuts are from Memory Box, and they are the puffy clouds.  I tied a button and bakers twine bow around the frame I created from a negative.  Sentiment is SU.

     I hinted at a home project in my last Unity post.  This weekend is demo for my kitchen.  I will not have a stove until mid October.  We have set up the toaster, micro, and coffee maker in a different part of the house.  Just can't imaging not doing real cooking for so long!  Wish me  luck!

Well I really like this self portrait. LOL Nice idea to use the negative for your frame work for your focal point. I love those leaves. your bow and twice is just the perfect amount of embellishment for this card. You'll do fine and it will be a total mess, but it's all worth it in the end. You do have another option - you can always go out to dinner a couple of nights a week. LOL The best of luck.

Grat card, dear friend, and it's my photo, not yours! The weeks fly by, especially when we 'lose' a weekday and gain a long weekend! Love your creation! And yes, kitchen photos would be ever so much fun!

Cute card...nicely done.

Since I have had the pleasure of meeting you "in real life" I KNOW it's not a self portrait! LOL You're too nice!!!

Oh Happy day! A kitchen remodel. I have been through that...don't remember how long I was without a kitchen to use...but after waiting 38(plus) years to have my kitchen updated...it was worth the wait. Want to see Pics, after!

Good luck with the kitchen remodel, Mary Anne. I like the offset technique with the image.

Oh now, Mary Anne, that doesn't look anything like you! It's an awesome card, though! I'm collecting the snow peeps, too. I've got to find some time to get them inky, though. Soon!

That witch is such a wickedly cool image and I love the card you created with her! Don't fret about the kitchen demo - just march Jim out to the grill and give him a pair of tongs when you're hungry :)

Linda said...

Mary Ann, I like how you tied everything together. The stamps are great. I like the use of negative space to frame your stamped image. TFS
