Friends with Flair January 23, 2015

Hello Friends,

I hope all is well with everyone!  For 2015 I am trying to participate in the Friends with Flair challenge every week over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.  So far, so good!  I have a card to share today.  This card was supposed to look totally different.  See, I had these wood words (Hello, Darling) that I wanted to use.  In addition to these two words, I planned on using Marlow from Marlow (Itty Bitty Fashionista) along with her coordinating stamp, Age and glasses of wine should never be counted.  Unfortunately, when I tried removing the words from their packaging, they broke in several places.  They were beyond fixing.  So I went to my Cricut cartridges searching for the words Hello and Darling, but struck out.  I went through some of my pattern paper and came across a sheet with the word, darling, and the statement, things to remember, and a light clicked in my brain.  I decided to also include the sentiments from a fairly new stamp set from Unity called, I like it dirty.  I am not totally happy with the design of this card and one day I aim to perfect it.  Sorry, a little wordy this evening.  Well, thanks for stopping by and have an amazing week-end!  Peace and love, Dawn
