Friends with Flair

Here is a sample of this year's Christmas ornament for my DAR members - they are all different and I love them.  The Unity stamp is the text background on the poinsettia - it definitely adds definition and texture.
Sorry for the short post - gotta run!!

Friends with Flair

I get to play today since work was cancelled - big ice storm in the Southwest.  I needed a day off:-)

I have been working on Christmas gifts and am in a dragonfly frame of mind right now.  Here are a few cards I made as a set for a friend as well as a knitted dishcloth I made her with a dragonfly. Although the photo looks red, it is actually hot pink and quite lovely....

All of these were made with the Splendid Things Itty Bitty set that I just love!  They are not very embellished because I know she will mail them.  They have fabulous papers, mostly Authentique...

So, I hope everyone has a fun weekend and joins Friends with Flair today!!!

Black Friday - Friends with Flair

In honor of Black Friday, I went to Fort Worth and bought a few things at Barnes and Noble (Take Ten and Stampers Sampler).....I love these inspiration magazines!  Now I am working on my cards and some ornaments.

Here is the Christmas card - I will share the ornaments and some other cards on the next few hops (I have to make them first)...I tried embellishing it more but nothing looked right so I settled on mounting it on kraft paper and stamping the sentiment.  I am making 11 of these - I used watercolor paper, distress inks, and distress markers.  Both stamps are from the November KOTM.  Did I say how much I love all my Unity kits?!!

Make sure you stop at every blog on the hop to comment and try to win something!  Happy Holidays to all!

Friends with Flair

It is finally Friday again!!!!  I love Unity and the Brown Friday sale is fantastic.  I know there are quite a few more stamps that have fallen into my shopping cart:-)

Here is a card I made some time ago from a KOTM or SMAK kit - can't remember which one - it is very simple and I love the look on kraft with this pretty quilty looking paper....

Happy Thanksgiving to all and I hope to see you next week!!!!

Friends with Flair - Finally a Card Created:-)

I have been absent from the Friends with Flair for quite a while - just so many things going on and not enough time to craft.  I did whip up a quick birthday card for a friend this week using my fabulous September Kit of the Month.  I love my KOTM and my SMAK kits!!!!

The photo is not great - I did it right before I gave it to the recipient but I used some Websters Pages  bloomers, some rhinestones and fabulous patterned paper.  And, one stamp with some cranberry Adirondack ink....

Hopefully, I can get some crafting done and share more with you soon!!!!

FWF and Will Summer Ever End?

I am ready for Friday and for my friends with flair!!!!  It is still 100 degrees here and I am ready for some cooler air.  Even 95 would do:-)

Here are a few easy cards I made last week - washi tape sure makes a card CAS no matter how elegant!  I love this new sentiment set for Unity and these butterfly embellishments look so real!

This last card is juse some paper and yarn on kraft with a stamp from a recent SMAK kit, I think.  I love it!!!
I hope everyone has a great weekend and visit all the other friends at

TGIF, Unity peeps!  This is all I have today.  I love this washi tape and instantly thought of this adorable itty bitty to pair with it.  My card didn't come out too well but I have ideas for improvement.  One might be to keep this furry beast away from my work area:-)  She is very needy today and wants to be in my lap so....

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and visit all the Unity peeps.  And, remember Unity is having a fabulous sale so check it out!
