Friends with Flair at Unity

Join us for this week's blog hop at Unity. Start your tour HERE and be on the look out for that illusive "You've Got Flair!" blinkie.... There's a new kit of the month out now, check it and all the other lovely stamps out on the Unity website!





I have to pass along to you what the benefits are of getting published.... My card featuring a Unity stamp was published on p.66 of the April/May Stampers Sampler and guess what? Unity generously rewarded me with $25 and a kit of my choice... woo hoo! So I chose the Melody Ross kit called Domestic Bliss which is where this lovely seamstress hails from. I am so into vintage images now. I liked pairing her with the sentiment from Material Girl and then following with another sentiment inside from the Melody Ross set called Just Be You. Isn't great that you can find stamps that go together from different sets? Gotta give credit to Stampin' Up, too, for their great decorative paper sets. The card patterns are from Sew Stitches and my seamstress' dress is from Springtime Vintage.

Oh and in case you were wondering how those cute little buttons were stuck onto my card.... I discovered Micro Pop Dots....


...amazing invention.... but don't let little children be around when you're working with them, though.... because they'll hear you cursing your fine motor skills! Lol.

Here's wishing you sew much fun this weekend! P.S. Maybe check back here tomorrow because I think my tri-shutter tutorial will finally be ready for your viewing pleasure....
