Friends With Flair January 31, 2014

Hello Friends,
My mom's birthday is Monday, February 3.  She loves the color blue.  So I grabbed blue paper, blue markers, blue ink, blue pencils, and of course, my Unity stamps.  I went with the flowers from 'wishing you joy' and the sentiment from Maggie girl.  Patterned paper is American Crafts and My Minds Eye.  I inked the floral stamp with Paris Dusk then colored in the image with a Copic marker and a blue pencil.  I wanted to add ribbon to her card, but I did not have any that matched.  I am still content with how her card turned out.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week-end!

Friends with Flair Jan. 3 2014

Hello all!  Happy New Year!  I am so looking forward to a crafty 2014!  Despite my enthusiasm for what the new year will bring, I am deeply saddened that one of my favorite craft stores, Archiver's, is going out of business.  Per the Archiver's team, the store has been struggling for several years.  I feel they gave their very best in keeping up with the ever changing trends in the world of paper crafting.  I would just like to wish everyone who works for Archiver's the very best of luck in all of their endeavors.  Thanks for a wonderful 14 years!  I am so going to miss going to your store and admiring all the new product that other stores did not offer.  What am I going to do when I need an Archiver's fix?

Here is a card I made for Valentine's Day that I posted on my website; I am also entering it into Unity's Friends with Flair.  Both the heart and sentiment are Unity.  Thanks for looking in advance!  I always look forward to the comments...they make my day more than you know!

Keep on crafting,
