A Little B&W Flair

     It is Friday, and boy, has it been one heck of a week?  My sweet little grandson is in the hospital, after a cough turned to wheezing, and then low oxygen levels. I am hoping he is well enough to go home soon.   Then there is the threat of a new foot of snow.  Yea, yea..... we are all sick of that "S" word!


     Okay, on with this weeks Friends with Flair card.  I am using the February, 2014 KOM, from Unity.  I found this great chevron paper from Pebbles.  It has a cast of rosy red/pink on the edges.   My image and sentiment were inked and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I cut out that awesome quilt image and popped it up with Scotch mounting tape, as well as the sentiment.  I gave it a pop of color with some rosy pearls.

     I am also going to enter this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is "Anything Goes With Pearls".

     What ever you do this weekend, make the best of it!  Me, I will be one of those loonies out  there pack ratting bread and milk!  Thanks for the visit.

Mary Anne, I love what you've done with the big stamped image. Leaving it black & white is great.

Mary Anne, this is great! So different looking and I really like it a lot. The pops of red are perfectly placed too. Fantastic.
Will keep your little grandson in my thoughts and prayers. I know he's getting wonderful care.

I love that you popped up the quilt section and the sentiment. It made for some great dimension. Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your grandson, I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers to get back home soon. Boy are you slow, I already did the bread and milk run. LOL Stay warm and safe.
