FWF and Slice Design card winner!

Helloooo and Happy Friday!! Only two days left 'til the 4th of July! Woohoo! Before I get to my FWF project, I'd like to announce the Slice Design Card Winner. Congrats to Denise (Mr. Smitherman) who said:

"Hi, I'm Denise (and signing in w/ my hubbies Google acct, Mr. Smitherman).I have the Slice and absolutely luuuuv it. Got it as a Christmas gift from my super husband. My favorite card is the Words & Expressions Design Card. Oh my! I could make so many greeting cards with this one. It entails every word or thought I'd ever need to create the perfect sentiment for my cards and put a lasting smile on someone's face (whether it's a b'day, anniversary, holiday or the need for some encouragement). The Words & Expressions design card has it all. :o)"


A big congrats to Denise and a big thank you to all who played! Denise, please email me your snail mail addy to sethdsmom@yahoo.com so I can get your package postal!

Now, onto Friends with Flair! I couldn't wait to get the May Unity Retailer KOTM. I snagged it up when I went to Arlington early last month and used the big circle grid on hubby's father's day card. Remember? Well, one of the flower images really reminded me of Texas Bluebonnets (native Texan, remember?) and I couldn't wait to play with it. Here's the card I made...

After creating the card base I embossed a kraft panel slightly smaller with the Quickutz Polka Dot embossing folder. For the image, it was stamped in Versamark then I added the color with my SU! chalks, which died in the proces of making this card. The scallop piece is Core'dinations cardstock that I cut using my Tim Holtz On the Edge Scallop Alterations die. I pieced it all together and covered the seam with some ribbon, topped off with a button. I know it doesn't look exactly like a Bluebonnet but that was my inspiration for the color. Be sure to stop by the main Unity Blog for the links to all the other wonderful creations!

Thanks for stoppin' by today! I'm sure you're gearing up for a big weekend, I know we are! Whatever you do please have TONS of fun but remember to be safe! I will be back tomorrow with an Ippity project I've been working on. I hope you can stop by.

Nice card - love the polka-dot textured background. So curious about the versamark and chalk process - sounds interesting.

Enjoy your 4th.
