Unity's FWF 6/21 - so this is love

Happy Friday! I'm so excited to once again be linking up with Friends with Flair over at the Unity blog! Last weekend I went to a local shoebox (card making) swap and since we had only 9 women, we had everyone make 2 cards so you could make one and take one from each person.

Last week I shared the first card I made; today is the favorite card reveal:

 Basic Grey Kioshi
Unity Stamp Co sentiment (so this is love set)
ribbon flower
PTI plum pudding card stock and ink
Gina K ivory card stock

Okay, I should clarify. We did vote on 'best card.' This was not the winner, but it is MY favorite and considering I taught several in the group how to make those ribbon flowers AND their own homemade glue dots I'd say this card definitely taught some of the group a new trick or two! And it's my favorite card. So there. :)

I made some with a different (non-Unity sentiment); this card showcases a much better ribbon flower. The above one I was clearly hyped on too much Diet Coke!


Thanks for visiting me today!

  1. I love it! Kioshi was one of my favourite collections - great colours. Annnnd....LOL - the 'too much Coke Zero' has been a culprit in some craftastrophe moments here for sure :)
