Friday - Friends - Five

It's Friends with Flair Friday at Unity Stamp Co. today.   It's also their FIVE YEAR anniversary this week.  Congratulations to Angela & her whole team!  In celebration, I'll share a "celebrate" card made with one of their fun {itty bitty} stamps.

This particular stamp appeals to me -- probably because I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and our home decor had nautical themes.  There were shells in the living room, a fish sculpture in the den and even a ceramic octopus on driftwood in the hallway.   (Said fish sculpture made it to landlocked Idaho and now hangs in the kitchen.)



I'm a big fan of the plaid paper used on this card.  It's from the Lost & Found 2 collection by My Mind's Eye.  I'm always in search of a good plaid.

In other fun news this week, I had a card published in the new 400 More Ideas for Handmade Cards from The Stampers' Sampler.    If you'd like a peek, check out this post from August.  It's the one with the adorable ice cream cone.

Happy Stamping!

They always says, Less Is More...and withholding color makes this card clean and crisp. I love it! Thank you for inspiration on a great idea.
