Friday Flair Post!

     Here is the post I planned on posting last Friday, and my computer went kaput!  Today I have 3 cards that I created with the August and September KOM.  I just love my Friends with Flair Fridays.  Unity also has some fantastic new releases and a great sale.  Go check it out!  There are awesome stamps for Cancer Awareness, also.  Okay, on with my cards.

 
     Card one uses papers from We Are Memory Keepers, plus scraps.  Images were stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.  I added twine, gingham ribbon, and a button as my embellishments.

 
     Card two is a Feel Better card, that uses my hexagon ef from Stampin Up! My beautiful collage image was stamped with Memento ink, on American Crafts, Hip Hip Hooray paper.  My dragonfly was stamped on vellum, the wings were coated in Diamond Stickles, cut out and applied when dry.
The embellishments are leaf brads, twine, gingham ribbon, and a Dew Drop.

 
     Card three is one of those cards that you work on forever.  I drug out a Dee Gruenig ink pad called a Blending Blox in shades of orange, and started to play. I was surprised these were still inky!  Everything is made with scraps, an assortment of stamps from both kits, and some gem stones.

     That's it for me.   Have a great weekend!

All three are very nice Mary Anne and I love the fall colors. I see that Olga picked a favorite, but I can't seem to pick one as there is something special about each one that talks to me. Wishing you a good weekend and I'm glad your computer problems are done with.

These are both beautiful and I just love the gingham ribbon you used with those autumn leaves and dragonfly! I can't believe you mentioned Dee Gruenig! I was just thinking about her the other day, and wishing she was still doing crafting shows on TV!! I hope your computer is done having fits!!
