So I've been slowly working on a fall card order, but my inspiration works in funny ways, so I haven't been staying on track. But, since it's Friday I thought I'd pull out some Unity Stamps for Friends with Flair and see what I could make in the fall themed department. I actually started with the bookmark because I wanted to play with the All Things Unity "One Layer" challenge and it's been awhile since I play with Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge, her challenge is to find inspiration on Janelle's blog and I loved her post with all these fabulous bookmarks. But I liked the bookmark so much that I made a card :) I thought the card would work well for the current Unity Challenge "Falling Leaves" and the Ippity Challenge "Tie it Up" challenge because I've used some May Arts twine. Because I splurged the other day and bought the new Tim Holtz fall distress inks I thought I should play along with the CR84FN color challenge (although I promise to use the new purple soon, it's FABULOUS!). And then I decided to make an envelope, because as you'll see below my younger crafting son decided to decorate his envelope for his card to my grandmother. When I told him his project would work great for the Young Crafters Unite challenge and that I'd make one too he said, "But you're not young." Thanks son! (For those of you who have been to my blog before, Mr. Ben, age 6, LOVES LOVES comments, so please include a shout out for his project, it seriously makes the little guy grin ear to ear).
