Friends with Flair ~ Itty Bitty a Day Facebook Contest Entries

For those of you who follow the Unity {Show and Tell} group on Facebook, I apologize for the repeat cards...for those of you who don''s a fun group full of inspiration like FWF, but daily! Either way, I figured that for Friends with Flair this week I'd post details of the cards I made for the challenge (however many that turns out to be!)

Monday's card is a CAS masculine one...I have a second image colored and I plan to line the inside of the card with white paper and put these in the pile for OWH. I figure that any hero would be comfortable sending this card home!

stamp: Unity SOTW Itty Bitty Anchored
ink: Memento
markers: Spectrum Noir
cardstock: white(Neenah), black and gray(stash)
ribbon: The Paper Studio
die cuts: Spellbinders

Tuesday's card....I'm two for two! I colored up the Phylis Harris stamp...this little girl is so adorable! 

I entered this one in a different linky party/contest, so the details are in a different post, here.

Day three...and I'm still making cards! My family had s'mores a few nights ago...which got me thinking about this SOTW and it rolled from there!

And will you take a look at that bow...I received a new toy in the mail this afternoon, the 3GirlJam, is it easy peasy to use!!! 


  • stamp: Unity SOTW Chocolate and Friendship
  • cardstock: white(Neenah), brown(stash)

Wow, I've managed to find time to make a card four days in a row...the thought of that just makes me happy!

Rainbows and happy thoughts for today!

WooHoo! I completed five projects in five days! And judging by the number of projects posted on facebook...I'm not the only one by far! A little bit different project today...a special order for my son...he's going to a birthday party and wanted something to put the gift card in, (ok, in told him that he *had* to put the gift card into something! lol) So a little spiffing up of the bag was in order...

I colored my own ribbon with markers again, this time using several different colors and flicking them on the ribbon randomly. I also wet the ribbon slightly with water and crumpled it into a ball then left it to dry ~ that's how it gets the crinkle. :-) Voila! I have ribbon that matches the stamp that I colored!

And check out that cute bow...made with the 3GirlJam bowmaker again...I'm loving how cute it makes the bows! 

Just a little bit of sparkle with some glitter glue, and I'm done! Do you ever gussy up the gift bags that you use?
