Friends with Flair Friday!

Woohoo!! Welcome Friday and FWF!!! It's been a fun week in Chicago but today we go home. I'm supposed to get to stop at Ikea on the way home. We'll see if it pans out. I want 2 more DVD shelves but, with all the stuff we brought, I don't know if they'll fit in the van. I may have to just come up here on an Ikea specific trip.
Today's ATC is from a swap I did a few weeks ago. The theme was "clothesline". I joined KNOWING I didn't have a clothesline stamp but figured I could find one somewhere. I never did. It was getting closer & closer to the deadline & I STILL didn't have an appropriate stamp. I tried to find something I could "hang" off a 3D clothesline & still didn't find anything. Then, I saw these birds. I figured, IF I had a clothesline, it would never get used 'cause I have a dryer. I hope no one was upset 'cause mine was a little off, like me.

Supplies: Stamps -- Ippity What Matters Most, Pattern Paper -- Echo Park (bg) and MME (birds), Cardstock -- SU, String -- Martha Stewart, brads

Next, head for Maria's blog or back to the Unity site for the full list. Have a fabulous weekend!

Final SU Project

This project uses all of the new SU In Colors except for Blushing Bride. we stamped all the little flowers, punched them out w/tiny little punches & then glued each one down. The vase is an oval punch w/the top & bottom cut off (no matter how many times I did mine, it always looked crooked!) All supplies, SU.

Hippity Hop!

Happy Monday Greetings from Chicago! What a whirlwind! Got the car & paperwork done at 5:30 on Saturday. Dinner, finished packing, started laundry of what we needed still to take, slept, finished packing, loaded the rental van & drove to Chicago. Got stuck in 2 traffic jams & then took a "highway" that went thru the middle of the shopping district of several towns. 29 miles of stop lights & Walgreens. LOL

Now, the relaxing starts. I have NOTHING to do for 4 days. We'll do some shopping at night (Becca still needs volleyball shoes) but lay around the hotel room and/or pool all day. Ahhhh.

Here's my Ippity card for today. I was trying to clean up my stamp table (EARLY Sun AM!) and the pattern paper was just lying there. I slapped it onto a card back, stamped the image on a scrap of paper & viola', instant card. Kinda plain but it makes ME happy!!

Head on to Jen's next or back to Ippity for the full list of participants. Have a great day & come back tomorrow for the cards I made at the SU party I went to on Saturday morning! Oh yeah, don't forget NEW IPPITY RELEASE Sneak Peeks!!!! Yea!!!
