hello 2010!

It is the first Friends with Flair {FWF} of the new year!  Welcome friends and I hope this year brings you lots of crafty goodness!

It is Friends with Flair Friday with UNITY… a day full of inspiration from Unity Stampers.  The list of participating Friends with Flair hoppers can be found at the Unity Blog.  Just a hint… someone has a secret blinkie that could win you some awesome Unity rubber when you leave a comment on that post!!!!

{supplies: cardstock – Bazzill, Georgia Pacific; pp – Cosmo Cricket Early Bird; stamp – Unity Stamp Co; ink – CTMH; buttons – Autumn Leaves; other – Sakura white gel pen, Fiskars border punch, string}

The little old blog has been quite lately.  The holidays were so much fun, but I was busy running around getting things ready.  Plus the hubby and I went out of town to celebrate our anniversary.  We had a fabulous time and I can’t wait to see what 2010 will bring… all good things I hope.  I’m ready to get back into the swing of things and what better way than with a FWF card!

These cute little birdies are from the August 2008 KOM.  I just thought they were too cute.  I’ve been on a button binge lately and this is a prime example.  I colored the birds with colored pencils.  This is one of my new go-to paper pads called Early Bird by Cosmo Cricket.  I’m in love.

I decided to play along with the Card Positioning System challenge this week and used sketch #48 for inspiration.
