Friends with Flair Friday....yippee!

Happy Friday the 13th, folks!
I don't know about you, but I am so relieved that it's Friday...what a week! With work, kids back to school, and me re-organizing my house (again!) and that's including my craft area (again!), I need to get some stress out. Time to craft!

I took some time this morning to construct a card for a dear friend of mine who's going through an extremely rough time. Broke out one my Unity stamps, too! I used Basic Grey's Hopscotch collection for the papers...that collection has to be one of my BG faves. Very simple card....surprisingly enough, it took me longer than expected. Must be out of practice! lol
I also dug out my Cuttlebug, and used the blossom folder, just to give it a little more Oomph! The card did not turn out how I envisioned...but oh, well.

That's it for me for now. I'm hoping to get more crafting done today...depends on  my DD, I guess. She's trying to 'help' me sort out my craft room....Lord help me! lol (I'm not getting much done!)

I'm entering this card in the following;
Unity Stamp friends with Flair
Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge--Emboss it!

Anyways. Be safe. Get crafty.

Super cute card, Laura. I love the stamp and sentiment. I recently purchased this one too. Thank you for showcasing it. Now, I will have to break it out and give it a try. Thank you for the inspiration.
