Friends with Flair, You are loved

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop!  There is a master list of all the  designers participating in the FWF this week over at the Unity Blog.  Be sure to check it out and see what Unity goodness there is for today!

My card uses the fabulous stamp set and October 2010 Kit of the Month, Take Time to Laugh.  This seems to be my "go-to" Unity stamp set of late!  I was in a stamping rut, so I totally cased this card I made a couple years ago. 
I used some of my favie My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose "Mabel" papers.  I. LOVE. THIS. LINE.  MME released all 4 Stella Rose lines in the 6x6 pad!  Happy, delicious sigh...  I also used a couple more of my new stick pens.  Did you see my SCS upload here?  Yeah, I stuck my finger pretty good with that pin and then ruined my card by bleeding over it!  YUCK!  I uploaded it anyway as a cautionary tale -lol!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  I will leave you with a closeup picture:

  17. Hi Michelle~

    I love this card, and I don't think this sentiment could ever be over used! If everyone used it every day and the world would be a better place.

    It is a beautiful card! I love those leaves...they are amazing! I really like the colorful paper you chose...or did it choose you?! lol This is wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing!
