Happy Friends with Flair!!


Happy Friday and Friends with Flair! Be sure to visit the Unity blog to see everyone's great creations! Today is a great Friday for me because I'm starting my summer break from teaching. Although I miss the kids and, sometimes, the schedule, I AM ready for a break:)

Today's project is CAS. I wanted the sentiment to stand out! I used two stamps from the May KOM to stamp the background. You can see a close-up below. Then I stamped the sentiment on dp and highlighted with garnet gems. It's popped up and accented with a ribbon tied with twine. I am hanging this on a neat frame that I got from Pier One a year ago. You can see the frame in the second picture below. It has these neat little clips that you can clip photos, tags, hangings, etc from. I actually have three in a row and I love them:)

Have a great weekend!

Stamps: Background stamps: May KOM: Unity, sentiment: Quote Bundle Pack: Unity
DP: Circa 1934: Cosmos Cricket
CS: Black: Papertrey Ink
Extras: Ribbon, Garnet Gems: Bazzill Basics, Pop dots, Twine: Papertrey Ink
