Friends with Flair...hey stud!

Popping back in with a couple of cards for Unity's Friends with Flair!
Supplies: stamps from Unity;
Vintage Photo distress ink;
papers from Bo Bunny;
sentiment sticker from Doodlebug; buttons from stash

Supplies: stamps from Unity;
Vintage Photo & Wild Honey distress inks;
papers from MME;
wood veneer banner from Studio Calico;
triangle buttons from Dress it Up
The first card is from a month or so ago that I'd never blogged, and the second is from today. I love cutting along the zig-zag edge of 'chevron' patterned paper. It makes an embellishment all on its own that way.
I've been busy making stuff for lots of challenges, so I'll be back with more both Saturday & Sunday. The sewage backed up again (yep, that makes 4 times), and the "big dig" should be happening Monday. It better be happening Monday. We're not going to think about it not happening on Monday. I'd like to be able to use my basement floor again without feeling like I need to burn my shoes after going down there...shudder...at least it's dry, if not clean.
xoxo,
Jessi

Ugh, more sewage issues? What a crappy way to start your weekend. ;) You used one of my fave Unity stamps--I love him! You are always so good with stamping on pp. The chevrons and wood veneer in the second are fab!
