i used a lot of burlap on christmas projects this year, and had a couple of extra roses, that i made, so i used one on this card.   the heart is cut out from some old brenda walton-(k and company) paper.

the cute stamped frame is from unitys "december kotm-just be you", and the sentiment is from unitys "birdy inspiration", which jen was sweet enough to send to me:)  ok, now, keep reading...

FWF {Christmas Eve style}

Hello, friends:}

It's Savannah here sharing a quick Christmas gift that I made for my friend and her new family. I love this Unity set Togetherness Families. How cute are those little squirrels?? I paper pieced each animal and even highlighted the tails with a gold and Souffle' pen. LOVE how this turned out. And the best part is that is fits perfectly with All Things Unity's #21 challenge--Holiday Theme [anything but a card]. This is a 2D photo frame. All my friend will do is replace the photo on the front. Easy and it will match her home decor with this metal star photo stand. LOVE it!
Not sure you can see it--but I used gold/Souffle' pens on the tails and glossy accents on the polka dots.
Hope you will join in the fun with All Things Unity--this is our last challenge until the new year. Click HERE to play along!

And don't forget these amazing deals going on over at Unity! OH MY--I have written Santa at least five times this week telling him new stamp sets that I want! LOVE LOVE LOVE my Unity:}
And while you are out and about...head on over to the Unity blog for a complete list of friends with flair! Next up is Angela over at the Paper Cupboard

Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks so much for leaving some LOVE! We appreciate your support and encouragement!!! Have a great holiday season--Merry CHRISTmas!! Be blessed:}

Holiday Friends With Flair - Dec 17

Good morning Party Peeps! Carole here with another project for ATU #21 to share for FWF today. You know the drill, right? For a full list of blogs with Unity mojo, check out the Unity blog.

My little gift box is made with Unity/Jillibean Soup co-branded stamp kits Snowflakes Fall from Heaven and Countdown to Christmas.
We here at All Things Unity just can't get enough Unity goodness, so we're hoping you'll be inspired by everything you see and will take the time to come play along with our current, holiday-themed challenge.

It's really easy. Just create something new, using Unity or {ippity}, and link up your post or gallery photo with Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post for ATU #21. If you do post your project to an online gallery, please make sure to use the keyword ATU21. This challenge ends at 11:59 pm on December 25 - that's Christmas, folks!

By the way, we certainly don't mind if you combine our challenge with other challenges, just so long as you follow the current parameters, (mentioned above) and don't back-link to old projects. Smiley from

Can't wait to see more Unity/{ippity} wonders from all you Unity fans out there! Have a good one!!
