Friends with Flair

Happy day my Friends with Flair Unity peeps.  It has been a long time since I have linked up on a Friday.  I miss it.  So I’m beyond excited to share two cards with you all today.

Did you see these?

Three fabulous new Phyllis Harris stamp sets and I couldn’t wait to play with two of them for today.


And for a Moment speaks to my heart.  I rode horses when I was younger.  For years and there are times I miss it greatly.  Especially when I see an image like this, it tugs at my heartstrings.

I always want to watercolor PH images.  So I pulled out my watercolor pencils and got to work.  I used my Cameo to cut out the background scalloped circle and then added a little burlap string to finish it off.

Awwww, this girl and her braid from Reach for the Stars.  hee hee.  You might have thought I would say cat, but really, I love her braid the most.  I think I lived half my childhood with my hair in a braid.  Even my dad knew how to braid my hair at night so it wouldn’t get all tangled up.

She is water colored as well on a tag cut from my Cameo.  The rhinestone stars add a nice bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to head back to the Unity blog to visit the rest of the Friends with Flair.
