Friends with Flair

     Happy Friday, my friends!  I has been one wild and wooly week in the Kelemen household!  My computer decided to go kaput for the umpteenth time, but hubby brought it back to life once more.  They laid all of the ceramic tile for the new kitchen/dining areas in the house.  That kept us trapped in the rear part of the house sleeping wherever.  Our poor dog is so confused, and never knows where she will find her food and water dishes next.  Today is delivery day for all of our cabinets, and I get to see how all the colors will come together!

 
     Okay, lets get on with my card offering for this week.  I fell in love with this adorable Itty Bitty from Unity, called Feel The Joy.  I could have stamped all day with these beauties!  There is not much to tell, except that I used scraps of this and that.  Some of the papers are from Flavia, and Wild Asparagus.  The one with the blue base is embossed with a Darcie's Basketweave folder.  I also used the little dragonflies from the 9/13 KOM from Unity.  For embellishments I used Dew Drops, gems, paper lace, and organza ribbon.

     Please stop over to the Unity blog, and check out all of the wonderful inspiration that is offered up this week, for Friends with Flair.   I also want to thank the Unity team for choosing one of my tags for the tag challenge this past week!  That was so much fun.  Thanks for stopping by!

These cards a so very special. I love how you partially colored the back panels and that stamp is just nice as can be. Your little gems are great embellishments. Glad to hear your cabinets are coming in. I remember that was one of my happiest days of our kitchen redo. It all looked so white and plain until they came in. congrats on your tag winning. Your definitely deserved it. Enjoy those new cabinets and your weekend.

You made a lovely card set, even with all the extra fun going on!

what a great set of cards. I just purchased that same Itty Bitty, so now I have the inspiration to use it. Good luck with your renovations.

Sounds like the renovation is coming along nicely - but know y'all are probably already tired of all the construction/destruction! LOL! It's going to look beautiful I'm sure.

These are so pretty. I'm in total love with that blue color you used on these too. Very pretty images and great cards!

Mary Anne, great minds think alike. I used the same stamp for this week's FWF. I absolutely love it. I love how one stamp can be used in different ways. You cards and stamping are lovely. And I really like your color combination. Thank you for sharing.
