Friends with Flair

 
     TGIF!  It's been a long, dreary week, here in PA.  The sun has not even thought about making guest appearances.  Today, I would like to share a couple of cards made with the new June Unity Kit of the Month, called In Love with Love.  It has wonderful images and sentiments, and it could be yours, if you sign up to be a KOM member.  Please check out the wonderful creation linked for Friends with Flair

 
     Card one uses designer paper, water color paper, punched and embossed hearts, ric rak and gingham ribbon, and a button.  The coloring was done with Copic markers.  I just love these sweet little jars!


     Card two is a CAS design, with the image ruling the front of the card.  It was done with water colors, on water color paper.  The front of the card was embossed with a Swiss Dot EF, and strips of turquoise card stock were added as a simple accent.

     Thanks for visiting!  Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

Mary Anne,
Those jars are so cute and your coloring is fantastic as always. Your second card is really designed well by adding those two side strips.

I love how you're visiting water-coloring on your cards! It's such a great look on the 2nd card, and I just love those canning jars on the first! It's putting me in a picnic mood :) Cute duo today!

BOTH are so pretty but that first one steals my heart! Love all the bright colors on this and the pieces of ric rack! Too cute with those little hearts topping it all off. The second - Love your watercoloring on this!! SO pretty and a very cute image with the sentiment inside.

Both cards are terrific. The colors for your first card is one of my favorite color combinations. Thanks for sharing.

Two fun cards here. Jars of love, you can't get better than that. This card makes me feel like I want to start canning something, but first I have to learn how to. LOL. Your second card is sweet as can be. Love the water coloring. Hope you see the sun soon. None for us today.

Great cards, Mary Anne! I really like that first one with the red and yellow. We've had nothing but rain here, too. Several neighbors across the street have their homes flooded. We're OK so far, but the lake keeps rising! There's rain in the forecast every day this week. Enough!

OMG, both of your cards are beautiful! Hope the sun comes out soon! :) I'll try to send you some of our hot weather!
