Unity Friends with FLAIR Friday

Man I love Fridays!! Especially when I'm off work, they are the best! I also love Fridays because its Friends With Flair at Unity. Don't forget to check out the entire blog list and look for the winning blinky!


I decided to combine a few challenges for my card today....the Ways to Use it challenge over at SCS, and the Limelight Challenge. But first.....there is a story behind this card...or at least the makings of this card.


It started on my lunchbreak Thursday. I needed some canvas or muslin or something so I could do the challenge over at Limelight. So I get this wild idea to head out to WM at lunch and get some. So I'm wandering around the sewing section, find the stuff I need and I go to get in line and there is a woman with at least 80 different types of fabric and she is getting 2 yards of every one! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME??? Do I look like I have 3 hours to stand around? I need this muslin cut and I need it NOW...not at 6pm tonight....its called a lunch HOUR for a reason! Plus, there is only one woman doing the cutting!!! So as I'm silently having a meltdown inside....these ladies are standing around chatting....guess they had all day to spend with each other. After 20 LOOOONG minutes in line.....(ok, so maybe it wasn't 80 different types of fabric) I finally got my one measely yard of muslin and headed for the checkouts!

Sooooo...enjoy this card today I went thru alot to get the materials to make it!
