FWF-what's this you ask?

Let me tell you....so Friday's used to be hip hop hangover day for the Unity peeps. Now that Hip Hop is no more (can't wait to see what Angela and the Unity gang have instore for us on Sept. 17), we needed another name. Angela still wanted Friday's to be all about her loyal customers, friends, and followers so that brings us to FWF-Friends With Flair! Isn't it a fabulous title? The first 50 to sign up each week on the Wednesday thread on SCS are included in the little blog hop. If you happened here just because, that's great, but don't miss out on all the other Unity goodness being posted today. Stop back at Angela's blog to see the rest of the FWF blogs. I almost didn't get this done. This week has been a whirl wind of emotions and honestly my mojo has been MIA. I guess I did find a little bit of it for a few DT projects I need to finish up plus this card for the Unity KOTM Challenge. Jennifer Buck gave us a doozey of a color combo to work with-green, purple, orange and black along with Unity stamps from the July or August KOTM. Perfect Halloween colors but I decided to make it even harder on myself and forego that theme. I actually really adore my card, it's cute right? Images are from the July KOTM-Pocket Full Of... I used a white thicker U to finish off the sentiment. Here's a close up of the details. I think pears are hot right now, I seem to be seeing them everywhere as of late. I don't like the taste of pears, but I love 'em here on my card. Oh, and just another tip on my giant scallops. I've been in love with the Fiskar's punch that is out there (Heather P. and Dawn McVey use it all the time) but I haven't had the extra cash to go buy it. I dont' think I need it now because I am liking the faux look I can create with my 1 3/4 circle punch. Love circles! Hugs, Lisa

  5. HEY! I've been noticing those jumbo scallops too- but never thought to try to duplicate it with my circle punch- cute and clever! I've also noticed the pears going around and I gotta say, they are one of my favorite fruits when ripe and juicy and perfect! YUMMY! This is an awesome card Lisa- I love the colors and am glad you didn't go Halloween with it. This is perfect!
