Friends With Flair Blog Hopping



Welcome to the Friends With Flair Blog Hop! Head over to Unity for a list of participants and just hop on through the land of inspiration...

I was inspired by last week's sample for the FWF40 challenge. I wanted a back-to-school theme since that's what we're in the midst of these days so it all fell into place when I saw the DP that looks like a standardized test! I thought the "Never Give Up" stamp would be perfect for encouraging the test taker to just keep going even if the going is tough. My focus flower is made to look like those cute flowers you see on top of pencils. (There's even a pencil!) Frugal tip #30: Use button stamps to make a flower. The button stamps and sentiment came from Unity's Aug KOTM and I coupled them with several fun back-to-school papers from DCVW.

Card specifics can be found on my SCS gallery. TFL!
