{5.6.2011} hello friends…

Happy Friday!

I think I say that every Friday, but I really mean it!  I love that I get to start my weekend with Unity and my Unity Friends.

I must pat myself on the back this year… I did good.  Ha.  I  had my Mother’s Day cards done last weekend!  Woo hoo, go me!  I don’t get it.  I make cards all the time, so how can I always be so unprepared for birthdays and holidays???  But not this time!  I was ahead of the game.  Yay.

This one is for my dear mother-in-law.
{psst – hey mom, I know you are looking.  You better stay away on Sunday!}  ha.

And it is actually already in the mail and on its way to Florida!

a mother’s love
wishes and kisses

I have had these two kits on my wish list for a long time.  I squealed a little when they arrived (ok, so I might have clapped my hands and jumped up and down too).   They have such lovely images and wonderful sentiments.  I embossed the paisley background with clear embossing powder on some textured pink card stock.  It looks so much better in real life, I will admit defeat in trying to photograph embossed images.  *sigh*

Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend.  I’ll be back Saturday and Sunday {hint, hint MOM… don’t peek!} with more Unity inspiration!  Lots to share this weekend!

Hope back over to the Unity Friends with Flair post to check out all the beautiful projects.
