And It's Friday Fun Time, Once More!

     I really do look forward to my Friends with Flair Friday posts.  It gives me great joy to post the results of my quiet moments during the week.  Here is a Unity stamp that I bought a month or so ago, during one of the great sales.  I thought it would be good to have on hand, as my daughter's friends are all in the delivery game right now.  This stamp is called "Any day now, baby!".


     I used lots of American Craft, Soho Garden scraps.  You know that little strip of contrasting color that you find on the edge of single sheets of paper.  I just love how this mom to be came out.  I may just have to make a few more of these.  For embellishments, I used an American Craft paper flower with gem center, and some Queen &Co Rox, for a bit of sparkle.

   Also, I'd like to enter this card over at Pixie's Snippets Playground, since I was a good girl and used up my bits.

     This weekend is my dear GS's 1st birthday!  Although his other grand-pop had to have emergency surgery yesterday, we are going to pull it all together and proceed with the party.  The surgery will allow him to be around for many more of Brian's birthdays.  Speedy recovery,  Bill!  Since I will be a little tied up, I may not get to leave my comments until later in the weekend.  Have a great one!

your use of scraps is amazing. Your really nailed it. It looks like you may have needed a little patience to create this card.
