FWF {November 26}

Hey everyone, Carole here with my first ATU FWF! How's that for a mouthful of alphabet soup? Just gets even better. It's really a CAS PDC FTL EIC ATU FWF. You see, it's a clean & simple card using the colours from this week's Play Date Cafe and the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL117), inspired by the Christmas cookies in this week's EtsyInspired Challenge shop, here at All Things Unity for Friends With Flair.

It didn't come out exactly how I wanted it to...I haven't quite figured out a method on how to get one ink inside a stamp with another on the outside - and get two different embossing powders where I want them at the same time. I really wanted to emboss the inside of the tree in silver. The first time I tried it, I ended up with a rather lovely all-silver tree. Not what I was looking for!
I used Joy & Wonder, which is not on sale this weekend, but check out what is!!
Don't forget, you have until tomorrow night (Saturday, November 27) at 11:59 pm Eastern, to upload your entry for ATU19. For Challenge deets and to link up, click here!

Head on over to the Unity blog to see who else is hopping along today. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

friends with flair time!...

hi, everyone! its my turn, (lynn), and there is lots to see on the hop, so I’m going to be quick.
you can find the master list here.

I found shari caroll’s great video tutorial to make this photo/gift card holder. mine doesn’t look anything like her card , but I followed the basic construction steps she showed.

I love the new jillibean stamps and papers, and that’s what I’ve used can put a family pic on the front of the insert and a gift card on the back.
