Unity FWF... and I am ready for some WINE!

Oh! I can't believe it's been two weeks since my last post...  Well... such it's life!  I've had to dedicate some time to some other things lately.  But, believe me, I need scrapbooking so bad.

Anyway, it's Friday!  This means fun, weekend, family, resting, and Unity Stamp Co. Friends with Flair!!!!   I made a card last night just because I wanted to post it for FWF today... and because I've got an order yesterday and was dying to use at least one of the new stamps, and also because I am very stressed at work and I needed to relax a little bit.

So I made this CAS card using Unity stamps.  For the background I used these new pens I found at TJ Maxx that are specially for stamping.  I wanted to use only one section of the stamp so I directly inked the section and stamped, instead of having to cover any other part I did not want to use at this moment.  So I love my little multicolor wine glasses.



The new stamp is the sentiment.  Don't you love it?


I framed with cardstock and placed while embellished with a doily, ribbon and some sequins.  I also colored in red and added some glossy accents to the little heart.




I felt better...  but still want to make more cards and layouts and cut papers... just for fun... LOL..

Seriously, finding scrapbooking has been great for me.  Sometimes I want to make something but my body doesn't let me.  Have you felt that way?  Tell me... leave me a comment... and maybe meditate about it while having a glass of wine today...  Have a good one!!!!

Me gustó el patrón de las copitas. Y el mensaje de la tarjeta te cae muy bien. Nunca he tratado las lentejuelas así que intentaré hacer algo con ellas. Muchas gracias por la idea.

I sometimes have a hard time getting started, but then you can't seem to peel me away. Love the teeny tiny wine glasses. I can just imagine a single drop in each!

Great card, Myra! Yes, I find scrap booking to be a great creative outlet for me. Or should I say Passion?

Love the card!! What brand are those markers? They look like Tim Holtz. Anyway...I know all to well about WANTING to craft but my body not letting me. Sometimes I have to force myself and then I'll be ok...once I get started. :)

Lindsey said...

Fun, fun, fun. These markers look awesome! I do like how crafting can sometimes take my mind off other things.

Miwa said...

Cute card! Looks like a good score of markers at TJ Maxx! Hope things get less stressful at work - or, at the very least, that you find some more time to scrap! :)
