Friends with Flair Friday!

Woohoo!!! Happy Friday!!! I can't believe how fast this summer has gone. The kids start school TWO WEEKS from MONDAY!!! For some reason, I'm really sad that school's gonna start again. You'd think I'd be happy to have the kids out of the house for 7 hours but, it also starts volleyball games & practices, basketball practice, concession stand shifts and general "running around like chickens with our heads cut off" days. Plus, it starts another school year without a job for me. :(


On to happier things! I LOVE my FWF card I made for today. I originally had this idea for my "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eyelet" swap but the tree was too big to go on the ATC. So, I threw it together as a card for today. I gotta say, I'm VERY pleased w/the result!


You'd think, realizing that the image was too big for an ATC, I'd realize the card orientation need to be portrait. But, when I cut my striped paper, I cut it landscape. Was lucky there was enough of this stash paper to cut another piece the "right" way. LOL


Supplies: Stamps -- Unity Everything Extraordinary, Cardstock -- SU, PP -- Basic Grey, Ink -- Palette Burnt Umber, Eyelets & Snaps -- Making Memories (LOVE these colors!)


Next on the hop is Savanah or head back to the Unity site for the full list. Have a super-duper weekend!!!

Til someone looses an Eyelet! How funny is that!
I love the card. Sorry you are bummed about school. It would put a damper on things having to run around so much. I am glad my DS isn't big enough for all the extra activities (we are going to start kindercare this year I think!)

What a super cute card:) I love the tree with the extra buttons for fun!! I always have to modify my cards or creations based on the size of the stamps! I always think one if bigger or smaller than it actually is! So glad someone else thinks like me:) Beautifully done!!

I'm sorry for leaving this part on your comment box--but I couldn't find the link to email you! You asked how to leave comments for my giveaway::: just leave three separate comments on my blog for today. You follow the steps 1-3 (you already have done 1...so just leave a comment for my bro/sil and then visit He IS Able and come back to tell me about it). Easy:) Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment today;) Lots of love, Sav

Your card is adorable - I love the "all fun and games til someone loses an eyelet" - funny! The card is so bright and cheery, even if you did have to recut your DP - great results.

Sorry to hear about the bittersweet experience of school starting up again. Not sure why you're without a job for another school year, but will pass on some encouragement that Jen from http://jenscupofcreations.blogspot.com/ - she sent me a card (I've now been unemployed for a year) reminding me that "into every life a little rain must fall - that's what makes the flowers" -- sound familiar? ;)

Happy Friday.
