Friends with Flair

 
    Wow, I am not usually this late loading my Friends with Flair post.  Hubby and I went for a little ride tonight, before the 5" of rain starts coming down.  I have been working on lots of things that I can't post, since they are for Easter.  I did however, drag out some Unity stamps that I received in a grab bag, many moons ago, and set about making this card.  That means that I don't know what set they are from, sorry.  Rachel just informed me that my stamp is from a set called "This House".  Thanks, Rachel!

     I started with a green card stock with texture, layered on some paper from K&Co designed by Kim Hodges, and then my colored image, which was done with Copic markers.  I did a double of the umbrella, and popped it up.  I added paper lace, also from K&Co, and gems to add some texture and sparkle.  It reminds me of a row of beach cottages.

     I do apologize for the tiny bit of Black Lab hair that made it into the photo.  Grrr.  Love her dearly, but, she has to leave her trademark everywhere.  If that is Jessie's job, she does it quite well.

Great card, Mary Anne! And the umbrella looks perfect all popped up! We got that rain last night. Lost power, the driveway washed down the hill....sigh. Mother Nature sure is cranky these days!

What a cute card, love it! I don't see any dog hair, but that would just mean there was a lot of love in that house. :)

This is so adorable, Mary Anne! You always come up with the most unique creations. I had the same issue with my sentiment this week coming from a grab bag, someone is always certain to help us out with the set it is from, huh! Have a lovely week!!
