Friends with Flair

Good morning everyone and here we are at Friday again! I really can't believe how fast these weeks fly by.

Today I have made a card to join in the fun over at Unity's Friends with Flair bash.  I have made a Spring card with one of my stamps of the week that I get each week from Unity which are such great value plus you get a sentiment with them.


Just perfect for Spring I think!  I have coloured the image with Copics and some chalk for the sky. The sentiment comes with the stamp and I have cut it out with a Lil' Inker penant die.  The image has been cut and matted with Nesties.  The flower is a dienamics die as are the butterflies and the leaves are a Marianne die.  I added a bit of Stickles to the butterflies.  The papers are October Afternoon.  The border is a Martha Stewart punch.  The button is October Afternoon and the gem and twine are from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Moments - Buttons and Bows


I am off to the hairdressers this morning then I think I will have a crafty afternoon followed by tea at the pub!  Hope you all have something nice planned for the weekend and can fit some crafty time into it!  Thank you for coming by today I appreciate it, take care xx
