My first Friends with Flair!


So, I've got some Unity stamps, and I've been meaning to play along with Friends with Flair for ages, and I keep dropping the ball. This week I finally made it - although can I just tell you, it is not particularly easy to craft when my allergies are going nuts? One eye keeps swelling shut, and once the 3 different allergy medications kick in, I'm still left with sinus pain & then I fall asleep. I've had two naps today (thank you, Benadryl) and it's likely to be an early night! I'm fairly certain that I'm coming across as having had a couple drinks.

Anyhow, I've been trying to make the most of my limited not-sneezing not-sleeping time, and have a few challenge posts for you!

Supplies: stamps from Unity;
Palette Noir ink;
Prismacolor pencils;
paper from Bo Bunny; standard oval Nesties;
faux dew-drops from stash
I couldn't resist colouring the bike pink - my own bike is pink :) You have a few hours left to link up your own creation for Friends with Flair, and the weekend to comment on the participants' entries- there's a prize for a random commenter too.

xoxo,
Jessi
