Hello to all my friends and my Friends With Flair Friday Buddies as well! I have had company for a while and we got a new puppy. I also have my parents dog here so I have 4 dogs and company. However, my Bestie and I have accomplished many “scrappy” things. I have done 17 cards and we have made some altered projects. We have attended 2 Copic classes and still plan to attend The Great American Scrapbook Convention for 3 days. I am having a fun time. I hope that you are too. I have a Father’s Day card to share with you. I used “You Are My Main Squeeze”.
I used my Copics and then I used Buff flocking from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Here is a close-up:
I also masked the image and used my Copic Airbrushing system. I have had 2 classes now. I need to get time now to put up my certifications. I hope that you are inspired to create today as well. I will see you again soon. Ciao…
Well the bad news is that today is my last day as GIU. The good news is that today is Good Friday. Don’t forget that this is Friends With Flair Friday as well. Sunday will be Easter. This stamp is your wings exist by Phyllis Harris, artist, that does stamps for Unity. The sentiment is part of the stamp set. Here are the Copic colors that I used: B-000, B-00, E-11, E-13, E-15, E-23, E-37, E-42, E-43, E-50, E-59, and YG-17. The papers are Prima Madeline. The bling is from Michael’s. I used a sketch #179 from Operation Write Home. I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing with you this week and I will be going around to your blogs and visiting. I have enjoyed each of your comments. Thank you very much.
Don’t forget that if you comment every day this week you get a chance to win 2 Unity Itty Bitty Stamps! I will be posting the winner on my blog on Monday!

I have 2 stamps that I have bought doubles of and I am going to send to send 1 each to 2 very blessed commenters! Thanks for visiting my blog this week. I would love it if you would follow me but that isn’t a necessity to win. The winners will be posted on my blog on Monday!
Yay! It’s another Friends With Flair Friday at Unity and that means fun, fun, fun! Well, it is triple fun today. It has been a hard week for us so I have three cards to share. Here is the challenge that is going on at Unity:
And here are my cards to share with you:
My son’s girlfriend’s grandfather passed away and they had the funeral Tuesday. There is a theme for Tuesday here. Anyway, I wanted to make her a nice Sympathy card. I used the With Heartfelt Sympathy stamp (from bunches of love).
Tuesday as my son and his girlfriend were headed to her grandfather’s funeral in another town he looked back in the back of his car, (he was taking his dogs with him), and his first dog as an adult had passed away in the car. This was a very sad thing as Corby wasn’t sick in any shape, form, or fashion and had been my son’s buddy for at least the past 13 or 14 years. You know that it is bound to happen but you are never ready. So again, it was time to break out the stamps and make a different kind of Sympathy card. This one I took the dog from Phyllis Harris’ “More Blessed to Give” and embossed him in black embossing powder. On the inside I used a couple of stamps from “With Sympathy” which to me is a must have in anybody’s stamp collection! It is SO versatile!!! It is on sale now too if you don’t have it!
Yesterday was my birthday. It was truly an awful day. My husband gave our Shih Poo a ham bone not thinking anything about it. It was a large one. Well that was Tuesday. He was up all night regurgitating it. He was still sick Wednesday morning. So my husband took him to the veterinarian. He was very, very ill. She did surgery on him yesterday. Anyway, he is recuperating now and hopefully will be home Monday. It will be a long recuperation and our dogs will no longer get ANY bones.
But let’s talk about the card. I used “Thank You” (at the least) to make my sister and my brother-in-law a thank you card for the lovely birthday gift that they gave me. It was very nice and I was very grateful.
I hope that you are inspired to get your stamps out and join us at Friends With Flair Friday at Unity! You still have time to play along. Be sure and check out what the rest of the ladies have made for you! Until we meet again…Ciao.
