Happy Friends with Flair my Friends!

Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to a fun extended weekend! Although I hear it might snow this evening through tomorrow. UGH! This means everything will shut down until they get a handle on it. Snow is not something we are used to around here!


I am so excited to share my projects with you today. My first item is a 5x7 flat canvas piece. I love to work on canvas. Its really simple but so pretty! I sprayed some of my mist over my canvas with a flourish chipboard piece on the side. Let that dry then lifted the chipboard piece off which left me the white flourish on the side. Next I inked up the edges with burnt umber. Then I stamped my images. The flowers and quote are from "The Artist in You" set from Unity and Donna Downey. The little bird is from "Birdie Inspiration" (0ne of my favorite sets!).



Up next is a little soft canvas piece I made. This one is a little more involved. First I stamped the large red heart from Unity's Scrapbook Kit "Unforgettable Moments". Then I stamped the Love postage image from Dec. scrapbook kit in black over that. Then I lay down 2 hearts and sprayed my red mist over it all. Let dry and removed the heats. Sewed the ribbon on the edge then stamped US on fabric and cut it out. Added the rhinestones, large eyelets and ribbon. What do you think?

And lastly, my daughter saw me making these flowers and asked me if I would make four of them for her and her friends to wear in their hair. She wanted to give them ask gifts for Valentine's day! Of course she asked me last night and needed them this morning! It was a late night but I love how they turned out!

Alright my friends! I am off for another busy day! I hope you enjoyed my post. I know I will love looking at all the FWF blogs later today/tonight when I can finally relax! Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Valentine's day!

PS: Don't forget to stop by my blog on Monday for my NEW {ippity} creations and to buy the NEW RELEASES!
