A Friend with Flair Friday Birthday!!!

Yep! That's right ~ it's my Birthday!!! I'm turning the big 'ole 40!!! Geez, what in the world happened?!? I don't remember 40 years disappearing... oh, well ~ guess I'd better try to remember the next 40 a wee bit better! Thank Goodness for digital cameras & camcorders!!!

So, back to the Unity Goodness... When I saw the latest Unity Bachelor Challenge ~ my first thought was "Be Still, My Beating Heart" ~ or whatever that old saying is (guess my memory is fading with age ~ just happened ~ ya know) And I was inspired ~ by that gorgeous ensemble of polka dots & plaid ~ and I knew that this little doll with the huge heart was exactly what my card needed ~ I ended up making the sentiment using 3 other sentiments in the same set. I just get such a chuckle out of this card. See how the plaid is simply oozing onto those pretty polka dots lol!

Deets:

  • Stamps: Unity ~ KOM-SEPT09 {go ahead...wish}
  • Paper: Unknown
  • Cardstock: GP
  • Ink: Memento ~ Brown
  • Misc: Martha Steward ~ Gooey Punch; CTMH ~ Liquid Glass; Copics; Smooch; Nestibilities; White Gel Pen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Monika! Love your blog! Wonderful creations--you're going to inspire me to pull out my Unity stamps...I've been getting the KOTM since the first one, and I've NEVER used them--can you believe it? I'm so vintage, but I love them, too--need to ink them up! Thanks for visiting me today--I'll be back for more Unity inspiration!

P.S. 40 isn't that bad! I think I've actually been having more fun since then (I'm 47)...so enjoy every second & have fun today!!!
