Nothing comes to mind

I wracked my brain for a witty, snazzy post title -something to make you chuckle, or at least smile a bit.  Then I decided I would settle for something cutesy...still nothing.  Ah well, maybe next week.  Anyways, I have something way better for you all this week, but you're gonna have to get through the rest of this post to see it!  So...Friends with Flair!  Friday again and a wonderful busy full of creating weekend is in store for me!  Can't think of a better way to start off a creative weekend than to soak in all the inspiration that FWF has to offer!  I have a couple projects to share this week.  First off I have a card made with the darling {ippity} set "House A Home" .    Paper is from MME, border punch from Martha Stewart and those little houses are just too darn cute!



Next is a fold out  photo wallet. Patterned paper from MME, stamps from the following {ippity} sets: "Life's little moments" and  "Love in Return".  The hearts are detailed with red glitter.  Here's what it looks like closed:




And here's what it looks like partially open:




And here's what it looks like, open all the way:




and finally, what you've all been waiting for (and, I'm sure much more apt to put a smile on your face than any silly post title I could come up with):


Unity Flair!

Hi Elisabeth,

Love your creations!! They are wonderful! Those three houses in the colors look wonderful, love the designs in them and those cute little windows and doors, must have been quite a job paper piercing! But great result and the paper with it is wonderful!
That envelope is amazing! How lovely all the surprises inside! That stamp of '10 things I luv about you' is wonderful with it! Perfect! Love the colors you've used for this project!

Hugs, Wendy
