TGIF!

Yay it's finally Friday!  I am on duty all weekend...but alas it's still Friday!!  I love Fridays because it means the weekend is here...but it also means it's time for Unity's Friends with Flair every Friday you can create a card or comment on all of the other amazing cards that others have posted in order to win Unity stamps--ummmm hello does it get any better than that?!?!  I think not :) Stamping and Free Stamps...hello sign me up!

The card that I made for today was inspired because a friend asked me to make her some good luck cards--so of course I couldn't say no.  As I was doing some checking of my favorite blogs I noticed that the lovely Cathy at Creative Cutter Room is having a challenge.  And the challenge is to create a shaped card...hmmm so my gears were definitely turning at that point.  I've been big into monster cards for a few weeks now and knew it had to be a monster.  The shaped cards on the Mini Monsters cart make these cards super easy to make!! Love that!  I also did some minor surgery and dissection to one of my new Unity stamps--yes I know I took the scalpel to it and I love how it can still all be put together :) This is my new favorite Unity stamp!!!

This is adorable. Did the paper you use come that textured, or did you emboss it? Makes for a perfect monster!

BloomingPink said...

Your monster is too cute...and such a fun way to use that "Good Luck with that" sentiment! HA~!

(and Psst...I cut my stamps all the time! At first, I thought how wrong and defacing, but then, you know...I just HAD to also)
