Friends with Flair Friday!

Happy Friday!! This week has been BRUTAL!!! Last Saturday, my van died. We started (reluctantly) looking at new cars on Monday. Monday was the Ford Escape. Tuesday was the Hyundai Santa Fe. Wednesday was Dodge Journey. Thursday, I thought we were done & just going to wait to for the Ford guy to try to match the price of the other 2. Well, I guess I didn't get the memo that Thursday was Toyota Sienna day. Ended up, we signed for a the Sienna yesterday afternoon. I still don't HAVE the car as they needed to find one w/o all the cool stuff 'cause that's the only way they could match the $$$ we would have paid for the other SUVs. But, I'm getting a NEW van with everything my old van had (which is nothing!) except now I have a CD player & an iPod hookup. I really hoped that my next van would have power doors & heated leather seats but I guess since I get a van for the same price as the one I bought 10 years ago, I got a good deal!!!

Anyway, I dragged my sorry, tired behind home last night after cleaning 10 years worth of stuff out of the van (I left the old fries & the candy wrappers) and had to do my FWF card. What to do, what to do. Well, I pulled 3 unused stamps from the Everything Extraordinary & a sentiment & the piece of cardstock lying on top my table & viola', it turned into a card. you can't tell from this pic but the cardstock has been spritzed w/my newest glimmer mist: Tiger Lily & Coffee Shop. YUM!!!



Supplies: Stamps -- Unity Everything Extraordinary, Cardstock -- SU, DSP -- Basic Grey, Ink -- SU & Palette, nesties, CB embossing folder & glimmer mist!!

Next on the hop is Kim or head back to Unity for the full list. Have a happy, fun, SAFE weekend & see you at the Ippity Hop (not guaranteeing another post since we may have car stuff to do AGAIN today, SU party on Sat morn, picking up hubby's rental car by noon & then, we may tag along w/hubby to Chicago on Sun morn so that will mean I have to PACK!!! but I'm still not sure we're going to go. Gotta weigh the kids disappointment at not going against spending the $$$ and taking the TIME when school starts a week from MONDAY!!)

Very pretty card. You really will love the Sienna. It's what I drive. FWIW, they're good at keeping kids safe, which, as far as I'm concerned, is the important thing.
