Friends with Flair

     Good morning, fellow bloggers.  Hope you have had time to be crafty this week.  We have had a very hot, stormy week around here.  It feels great to be home after another week away.  I have missed being able to do posts, and was not very happy when I came home to computer issues.  I am trying this post from hubby's laptop, until we get them resolved.  Anyway, have you seen all the new goodies, and special offers over at Unity?  Be sure to check it out, and get some inspiration from the Friends with Flair posts, this week!

     My card was created with a Unity Itty Bitty set that I found in my DD's craft room. The set is called Favorite Mustache.  It was fun to play with someone else's goodies.  I even used papers from her scrap bin.

     Have a fabulous weekend, and thanks for stopping around.

Friends with Flair Trio

     Hi everyone!  Sorry I have been missing for the last couple of weeks, but the 31st, I was in the labor room with my DD, and last Friday, I was still away cuddling the sweet little guy.  Since I won't be able to post next Friday, I just had to get a few cards posted for this weeks FwF.  If you would like to link up for a chance at a prize, be sure to visit the Unity blog!

     My first card uses the new June KOM called "Love The Little Things".  I found a large scrap of this pink and brown polka dot paper from Wild Asparagus, a digital image of a vintage Spring tree, and some paper doily pieces laying on my desk.  After moving them around a few times, I stamped the bird and sentiment with Memento ink, and colored the bird with Copic markers.  I cut it with SB Labels Two dies, and fussy cut the sentiment.  sponging was done with SU! inks, and a button, twine and flower was added.

This card will also be entered over on the OWH blog for the mid week throw down "Things with Wings".

     Card two is using the pretty dress form from the KOM.  I also love the fancy medallion, which I think made a great background.  The designer papers are from My Minds Eye, coloring is done with Copics, and a Viva D├ęcor pearl pen accented the medallion.  The dress form was cut with a SB scalloped rectangle die. Sentiment is from A Muse.

     Card three, also used My Minds Eye papers, images form the June KOM, leaf trim from May Arts, and coloring with Copic markers.  The sentiment embellishment was created with SU! products and twine.

     The images in the new KOM are such fun to color, and create with!  Please be sure to check out the wonderful designers, and leave some sugar.  Yes, you can also be a winner with a comment!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

My First Grandchild!

     Good morning, dear friends.  After a long, exhausting few days, I am here to share a photo of my new grandson.

     Brian Quinn Daley came into this world on Friday, May 31st., at 3:00 p.m..  He weighed 8 lb. 14oz, and was 22 1/4 inches long.  I am staying a few extra days, as my daughter needs some extra help with her own personal care.  He is just amazing, and is expected to come home today.

    Thanks for all of the prayers, and well wishes these last few weeks.  I could feel you all cheering us on in the labor room.  I was so blessed to be present for his arrival!

I will get back to my regular craft routine when I arrive back in PA.
