Unity Friends with Flair (15.06.2012)


Hello!  Hope you are having a great day.  It's time for some Unity Friends with Flair inspiration, and I hope you'll hop along with me.

Since it's Father's Day this weekend, a friend asked if I could make a card for her.  I pulled out my very first Unity KOM, February 2010 (which is now retired) - that kit has some great sentiments for Dads.  I selected my favourite sentiment and the 2 little cute birds for this card:

The birds are coloured with Copic Markers (RV93, RV95, R56, R59 and BG11, E23, R56, YG63, BG70 BG72 & outline BG10).  The tree is a die-cut and coloured with Copic Markers (E23, E25, E27, YG61, YG63, YG67).

On the inside, I left it really simple for writing in the message, and used another sentiment from the same KOM.


This weekend, I have to pack up my craft supplies - I've been putting it off but I think it's time.  I'm getting ready for a move - am heading back to work after a long break, and in a new country.  So, it's all very exciting!  Although I won't be making cards for awhile, I'll still be around to follow your creations each week.  Wish me luck!

Thank you for visiting me today.  I truly value your kind comments each week, and your support has made all the difference, more than words can express.  It encourages me to be a better cardmaker and I am also inspired by your creative work.  Throughout the next few weeks, I'll still be posting some cards every now and then, which I've made ahead of time.  I hope you'll like them.

Take care!  Till the next time...stay well.
Kary

Kary, this is such an amazing Father's Day card. I am so wanting that tree die now! I feel like I was transported to a city park! Have a blessed weekend.

So beautiful card. And that KOTM must be well taken care of. There is not so much stamps with Dad's theme around. Sometimes it's so difficult to make a card like that. Thanks for sharing.

Kary, that Father's Day card is just delightful! You added just the right touches, and I adore those Unity stamps :).

Wishing you ALL THE BEST as you make your move!! It does all sound very exciting. I'll be thinking of you and looking forward to you getting your craft supplies all unpacked so you can get creative once again. :D Good luck, my friend!

What a fabulous little scene! The birds are so cute, and the sentiment too true. I like what you did on the inside, too.
Good luck with the move and transition, Kary! Hope you don't suffer too much crafty withdrawal!
