Friends with Flair and fun news

***this is my second post today. If you are looking for my Stamp Simply challenge card, click here or scroll down***

Hi Everyone, it's Friday and I have two {Ippity} cards to share!! Angela has the master list of all the 50 designers participating in the FWF this week! Take a lookie at the Unity blog for the names/links of more Unity/{Ippity} goodness.

My first card uses the amazing heart tree image from {ippity} stamps, Straight from the Heart set -isn't it the cutest?!? The inside sentiment is from Just Wanted to Say set. The pp is Cosmo Cricket Early Bird and the fabulous striped ribbon is from Sharon's Stamp Simply store.

I colored the tree with copic markers. The hearts are colored over with the red Stardust glitter pen and the center heart is popped up. It follows the SCS sketch challenge this week. Super cute sketch I think!

Here is a picture of the inside. For some reason, I am always asked if I have anniversary cards and never do -not anymore!!

This next card actually uses a card base I had made up from over a year ago -yep, I keep things around THAT LONG! LOL! I scrapped the card, but liked the "bones" of the card base, so I kept it. I revamped it with the little lovebirds from the Because of You set.

This set is perfect for flopsy doodle cards AND has lots of images for Valentine's cards too!!

AND NOW FOR MY FUN NEWS...
