Ruffled lamps and a recipe

I have two things to show you today for Unity Friends with Flair Friday, but first, make sure you check out Unity's blog to get the list of participants this week. And find the flair for a chance to win a grab bag of stamps. Don't forget Unity is having a sale right now. Check out the Unity blog for more info.

My first card uses my favorite Unity stamp right now, this adorable little lamp from Shine On!. I love to paper piece the shade. I used only my paper scraps for this card. I ruffled the bottom (for the new Moxie Fab challenge) and covered the "mess" with a pretty ribbon. The sentiment is from my Elegant Verses set and I've always wanted to pair these two stamps together. A bow with a flower and button center finished the card.


The next one was my entry to Week 4 Bro Challenge. I used an oven mitt from an old set, Lovin' from the Oven (I think that's what it's called). Again, I used scraps for this project. This Rachael Ray recipe is soooo good and soooo easy to make. I change it a little by adding sauteed chicken (we're meat lovers in our house :-)) and mushrooms. You can go HERE to see the recipe in full. The sketch follows the Card Positioning System this week.
