Yay for Fridays!

Not that this week has been horrible by any means, but there's something simply wonderful about Friday's - filled with the promise of the weekend, the thrill of being able to sleep in (even if you don't) and the freedom to do something just for you, without feeling too guilty!  So here we are, another Friday, and another Friends with Flair hop!  I have 2 cards to share today, both using this month's Unity KOTM.   I just loved the cloud background and couldn't wait to ink it up!






Next I made a simple classic Christmas card, Red green and cream with gold accents - just perfect for the Color Throwdown challenge this week!  I added a bit of understated bling by painting some rock candy stickles in the center of the ornaments:




All {ippity} stamp sets are available for purchase right Here!

Your next stop on the hop is Here!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!  Till next time...
