Friends with Flair
Hello my wonderful Friends with Flair, I’m sharing my card for the brand new Unity Challenge that started on the 15th!
This month’s challenge is to use STRIPES in your project. You can use ANY Unity stamps for this challenge (but only Unity) and you can combine with other challenge.
Our littlest niece is turning TWO! She is so darling, I just wish she lived closer so we could watch her grow up. I’m using some fun, girlie, party papers and stamps for her card.
My stripes are a little subtle. Can you believe I had a hard time finding stamps with stripes? I blame it on the quantity of stamps I own. There are just too many to go through. Ha. So I reached for what just arrived and used Game Day Chili and everyday, EVERYWHERE. Game Day Chili had some cute striped stars just perfect for this challenge. They mixed in with the patterned paper perfectly. And then my tag is punched from striped paper as well.
I had to laugh, when I handed my card over for inspection to the hubs, he read it as, Happy birthday TWO? Hmmmmm. I said, no, Happy SECOND birthday. So, in order to get my thought across I had to add the little no. before the 2. After a second inspection, he said, don’t you have a numbers sign? ARGH. No, I don’t. I could not find a # sign anywhere! I very well might have one, but seriously couldn’t find it. I ended up stealing a saying from another set that included the word ‘note’ and masked off the ‘te’. I don’t know if it really passed the final inspection, but it will do. Ha.
