Friends with Flair

Wow, Friday again? So soon?

I love the business of the holiday season, but would like to not have the fun days go by so quickly!

I've got a quick project tonight...using one of my SOTW, they are so easy to pick up and play with!

This one will be on its way soon to a friend who is having a tough time right now.

Just one layer, and some blending with distress a bit of bling!

  • cardstock: Wausau
  • stamps: Unity
  • ink: Tim Holtz distress ink
  • gems: The Paper Studio
I'm linking this card up to Unity Friends with Flair.

Have a great night and thank you for stopping by!

Snowball Scott

I've found another challenge blog to play along with...and they even give you an image for you to play with!

Have a peek at A Day for Daisies if they are new to you...or if you'd like to pick up this cute little guy!

He's an adorable little snowman...take a look!

I've been squeaking a bit of time to play with my markers...I know that it will take a lot of practice to get as good as I'd like to be, but I don't think that I'm starting out too poorly.

Although I did quickly learn the importance of using quality cardstock intended  for use with markers...I went ahead and placed an order for the Neenah cardstock through Amazon...I figured I'd go broke buying it a page at a time from the LSS at $1 each.

Anyway, here's a bit closer picture of the coloring...

The shading around the edges is distress ink, and I added some ink to the embossed snowflakes on the strip under the buttons, too. Simple and quick, it took longer for the glue to dry under the buttons than it did to make the rest of the card!
