My FwF Post.

 
     Hi friends!  Sorry I missed last week, but it was not exhausting enough with a new puppy in the house, I went and caught this nasty bug that has been going around.  It made for not much sleep and very long nights.  I will be posting this for Friends with Flair, this week!

 
     My card this week, uses the Unity KOM from February 2012.  It contains many great stamps, and I have gone back to it time and time again.  My card starts with a white base, which I stamped with the rain drop background stamp, using Smokey Slate ink from SU!.  I then layered on leftover scraps of TH Shabby dp.  I used mounting foam to get some dimension.  The umbrella and sentiment were also in the kit.  Coloring was done with Copic markers, and sponging was done with Smokey Slate.  I added sequins from Fancy Pants, and a bit of sparkle from a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen from Sakura.

     Thanks ever so much for paying me a visit!  I will try and get around to visit before the weekend is over.  I have some friends that are fighting very big battles, and I will be sending this out to one of them.

This is so soft, subtle and very pretty with all the raindrops and sequins! It looks like we may be needing an umbrella soon too!

Your friend will get uplifted by this beauty that's for sure. Love those sequins they add just the right amount of brightness to this card. So sorry to hear you caught the bug but happy you have your new little one to keep you company. No matter how sick you are they are always their with their adorable faces to make you smile. I know. We are babysitting my friend's 16 year old Yorkie this week so things should be interesting this upcoming week. I may not be around too often either. Feel better soon.
