Unity FWF Blog Hop {Jan 14th} + a Winner!

Welcome to Friends With Flair! Be sure to start at the Unity Blog for a full list of participants because you won't want to miss any of the beautiful projects. Find the blinkie and leave a comment on that blog for your chance to win 25 random Unity stamps! Oh, and have you been to the Unity Store lately? I know, your wish list is a mile long and you have no idea how you're going to afford all that you want. That's exactly how I feel and it's not just the itty bitties I want need!

So without further delay, I present you with a card I made using the itty bitty Enjoy Life and the January Kit of the Month - To the Moon & Back. I love this itty bitty because it's a versatile frame I can put practically anything in! How much do you love the shoes? When I made THIS card, I mentioned that I had a lot of ideas for those shoes. Well, here's one of them! I created a mask and made a pair of shoes! That's right, a pair!!! I couldn't resist adding Stickles to the buckles and bows. I cut them out and walked them around the table wishing for a paper Barbie. LOL I used this particular punch for the sides of the card because the holes echoed the dots on the itty bitty. Then I stamped the texty-floral border along it. I love that border and have a feeling it's going to be a favourite!

Yesterday, I announced a giveaway consisting of three spools of American Crafts Valentine ribbon. I used Random.org at 10:00pm EST and it picked comment #32 which is Wendy ten Hove! Congratulations, Wendy!! Please email me at artsy_em at hotmail dot com with your mailing address and I'll pop these in the mail to you. If I don't hear from you by January 16th at 11:59pm, I will choose another winner.

Your next stop along this blog hop is
the very talented
Lisa Henke!

This card is so cute, Emily! What a fabulous masking job. Those shoes make me think of Dorothy's ruby slippers. :)

Love this, Emily! I'm going to have to dust off my "enjoy life", think I even cut it apart!

Dude, who wouldn't enjoy life in those shoes? Very smart of you to turn one shoe into two. Maybe the folks at Unity can work on a stampable barbie to go with them :)
