Back 2 School...and a new Fascinating Friday Feature!

Hey all!

I am here today with a card for the Unity Friends with Flair and the Unity Monthly Challenge-Back to School. Be sure to stop by and blog hop with all the Friends with Flair participants to for a chance to win some free Unity Stamps! :-)


Using the Smarty Pants set by Unity, I created a simple but fun little Back to School card, by stamping the Report Card on some blue graph pattern paper I had in my stash next stamping the Back 2 School distressed sentiment on the focal image. For a little more visual interested I added a punched apple and button.  Across the top, I stamped the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, TGIF stamp which I thought was so cute! I know I always counted the days till Friday when I was in school! :)

I added some fun little papers found in my scrap collection to my chocolate card base. I added a doily dyed in Riding Hood Red.  I then added a complementing striped Riding Hood Red twill ribbon finishing with a button and some twine. I am playing along with Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge since all items were found in my handy dandy scrap box! :-)

It's another Fantastic Fascinating Friday feature! I am super happy to share that the uber talented Mariana Grigsby will be our spotlight artist.  Mariana's creations are well known in the papercrafting industry please hop on over to Paperie Design's Studio to get to know a little more about her. Please leave some love to let her know you stopped by!

Don't forget to blog hop with us also with the Unity Friends with Flair. Who doesn't want to win free stamps just for leaving some love!

Have a great day~
~Tammy~
