Happy Friday!

     Well here we are, back again.  The weeks are just zooming by!  It is once again time for Unity's Friends with Flair, and some great inspiration from other Unity stampers.

     This week, I have 2 more watercolor cards to share.  The first is from the April 2014 KOM.  I just love the floral panels that they have been including in the kits.


     I used kraft, ivory, and chocolate card stock, with my image stamped on watercolor paper with Memento ink.  This is very CAS and I tried to focus on the main flower.  A bit of washi tape was used as an accent.


     My second card is on white card stock with designer paper by Studio Calico. 
The stamps are from the July 2011 kit.   I created a border with my SU! scoring board.  I also used my Memory Box button dies, to create accents from the same paper.  There is a soft shadow that I stenciled around my main image with a Balzer 6x6 stencil, for some added dimension.


     My adorable grandson, Brian, turned 1 last Saturday, and I thought I would share a couple photos!  He was very serious as he explored his smash cake.  It was hard to tell if he enjoyed the sweet taste.  He was so good!  There was blue up his nose for a few days.

 
Have a great week!

Mary Anne,
Two wonderful designs again. I love seeing what you come up with every week. The first one is beautiful and soft the second is just plain fun. The stenciling and buttons make the card. I hope your weekend is uneventful and fun.

You really put those Unity KOM stamps to great use each week, and I really enjoy seeing all of your creativity with them! The watercolored flower is gorgeous, and I love all the button accents on the cute 2nd card. As for Brian - I could just scoop up all of his sweetness and give him a big hug!! He's adorable, and so cute in his party hat :)
