Unity Friends with Flair

It’s been at least a couple weeks since I joined in the Friday fun at Unity, so I thought I’d create a card for today and play along!  It’s a Friday blog hop with Unity creations and there are free stamps to be won!

I used a bird image for my CAS card today.  I had a little strip of leftover cardstock I’d stamped with a chevron pattern and put it to use!  I also added some yellow Stickles to the circle frame for a little sparkle.  Of course, some gemstones found their way onto the finished card too!  I absolutely love the sentiment!

I’ve got a painting project to finish up today.  I always love picking out new colors and putting a fresh coat of paint on things!  I only wish I didn’t run out of steam after painting a couple days.  I’d get things done on my painting wish list so much faster!  Ah well, it’s getting a bit hot to be painting indoors anyway.  I like to have the windows open and it’s supposed to get up near 90 degrees this weekend!  Better go get the last coat on before it heats up today!  The boys are busy playing with bubbles and I try to work on things when they are preoccupied!  🙂

I hope you have a wonderful Friday!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a new color challenge from Dynamic Duos!
