Unity Friends With Flair {Oct 19th}


Hooray, it's time for Friends With Flair with Unity Stamp Company! I need a few masculine birthday cards so I thought I'd finally ink up some stamps from Ol' Bag of Fun and some other background stamps I've had for a while.


I love this huge brown paper bag and the hilarious sentiments that go along with it! I layered the bag to make it look as if helium balloons were coming out of it. When I inked up the Wood Grain Script and Chicken Wire Background, I immediately thought to myself, "Wow, why did it take me so long to use these?!"


Have a wonderful weekend! I am hoping to find some time to set up my Silhouette Cameo which was delivered yesterday and maybe even play with it a little. ;)
