Unity Friends with Flair (1 July)

Hello Friends!  It's that time of the week again, for Unity Friends With Flair.  Check the Unity blog for all the fabulous Unity fans participating.  Visit their blogs and leave a comment for your chance to win some Unity stamps!

Here's my card:

I know, it's a really simple card today. It took less than 10 minutes to put together. The last few days, I've sat at my table staring at the beautiful craft supplies but with absolutely zero desire to make anything.  Do you have days like mine? 

I really wanted to have a card to share with FWF.  A recent email from a friend came to mind, we were discussing friendships.  She asked if friendships need to go through the test of fire before we know if they will survive and last.  So very true!  I pulled out this Unity sentiment I've had for a long time and made this card.  I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point - it is true isn't it, that we meet many people along this journey of life, but true friends touch our lives and leave a footprint in our hearts forever.

Thank you for visiting me today, your encouraging comments always mean a LOT to me.

I like the different edges you used!

Anne said...

Your card is great! Love the way you colored the heart with different shades of red! I have those times too, when nothing seems to want to happen. I just try to push on through and create something. Sometimes the process gets me going:)
And about friendship....I agree with you completely!!

Laura said...

Beautiful card! I definitely have days like that, too. Sometimes I end up just stamping or colouring something in without actually using it on a project but it's fun to just play for a while.
