Friends with Flair - Life's Boring Without You

"There is something about the presence of a cat......that seems to take the bite out of being alone."

Hi, Friends.......

I am back with my Unity - Friends with Flair card for this week.  I am really into emboss resist backgrounds the last day or so and did one with a Unity grab bag heart and arrow stamp for this card, too.  

I started with some K&Co. pink patterned paper and stamped the image with Versamark and clear embossed.  Then I sponged over the background with Distress Inks - Festive Berries and Seedless Preserves.  I love the look of emboss resist.  I don't know why I don't do it more often.

I used my The Alley Way Stamps - Speak Easy set for my sentiment, stamped with Memento - Tuxedo Black and heat embossed with clear powder onto pink cardstock.  My red banner is from my DCWV Fiber stack.....with that delicious texture.  LOVE!!

That's all for this post.  I hope you will join me next Monday for my combined First Blogoversary & Janis' Birthday Double Giveaway!!!!  Thanks for stopping by!!!!
