Unity Friends with Flair (18.05.2012) - Celebrate Life!


Hello Friends!  Thank you for taking the time to visit me.  I hope you'll enjoy today's card - it's a call to Celebrate Life, Everyday, Wherever YOU are!

I LOVE this Itty Bitty by Authentique - Everyday, Everywhere (thanks to Emily, it's the other Itty Bitty prize I received for commenting on her GIU post).  It has such a fun image and a great sentiment.

Picture of everyday, EVERYWHERE
I thought the image would go so well with the Studio Calico Abroad collection.  I especially love the globe paper.  For some reason the combination of the papers and stamps reminded me of the song "We Are The World" ;) I guess that was the inspiration for this card:

I used Distress Markers on the stamp - Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China and Worn Lipstick.  These markers are so fun.  Can you also tell I had quite a day with the Sewing machine?  I'm back to being in love with this machine, so many stitches to choose!  (FYI the machine has been sitting in the store room neglected, for 8 years!!) By the way, I've forgotten how to make the machine work with the foot pedal, I can get it work only with the start/stop button! LOL!

Here's a closer look at the card -

Make sure you check out the Unity blog for all the Friends with Flair projects today...You will be inspired!

Have a lovely Friday and a Wonderful weekend!!
Kary

This is a SUPER cute card Kary! I love the "We are The World" theme you have going on..such a special song and you've captured it so sweetly here!
I am very envious of your ability to sew on cards, I want to do that SO bad, and have 2 machines and no clue how to use them :( LOL!

This is fabulous. So artsy looking.

This is a really cute card. I would look at that stamp, and not have a clue of what to do with it. I love the detail of the paper doll cut outs behind the stamped image. Very creative! Barb

BloomingPink said...

SO PRETTY.


And I got a good chuckle out of your sewing machine troubles...you're lucky it still works after all that time! No cobwebs? (And really, I shouldn't talk considering I have a couple upstairs that I haven't used in QUITE A WHILE either) :()

Eva said...

Kary, your card is awesome, love the sewing you did on it, and I love the papers and those stamps together.

GORGEOUS card, Kary!!! The papers are fabulous and the colors are vibrant and fun! Congrats on rediscovering your sewing machine! Wish I could help you with the foot pedal thing, but I am sewing machine illiterate...lol!

Scrapper Myra said...

Little nice people in your card... nice stamps and nice use for them.

Helen said...

Kary, oh I love this card! What a cute stamp and really, those papers could not be more perfect! Well it was worth dusting off the sewing machine because the stitching looks brilliant. Have a lovely weekend x
