Happy Friends with Flair Friday!!!

Well it is Friday and I am on time with posting my card.  This card was created as a wedding invite. One of my co-workers, the art teacher, informed me before school was out that she was engaged and getting married on Labor Day weekend (happens to be the same weekend Aaron and I married).  So knowing that she loves handmade cards I suggested that my wedding gift to her could be the materials to help her create her own card.  She took my up on it.  This is what we came up with. 

She was in love with everything Tim Holtz that I had, the bird cage/bird and his paper, inks, stickles, you name it she wanted to use it.  One more thing was needed... a wedding stamp. I know the exact one. That Mr and Mrs. stamp from the KOTM set.  So we had it.  I bought the cards from Michaels in the bulk pack and she found the ribbon at Hobby Lobby.  She is in love with the card, we made 100 of them and here is mine which I received in the mail today!  I suggested that she not put anything "in" the card and that she put the invitation working on paper that you can put in the card, then people can use the card for a wedding whenever they needed it.  There you have it! 

Here is another card I made using another wonderful Unity set!!!


Don't you just love the cosmo sets! I do!!!



Here are some of the 3x3 cards I have been making. 
Well there you have it.  I have these ready to go and farmers market ready!

What beautiful cards. And what a cool way to honor/celebrate your friend's wedding -- the invitation is lovely (and smart to insert the info separately so the cards can be re-used).
