Friends with Flair - End of the Year

Wow. Can you believe it's this close to the end of the year? And next week is...(taking a big breath)...Christmas??? I am SO not ready!! And this is so not the card I was going to make! But what are you gonna do when inspiration strikes?

I was trolling the net, trying to spark the mojo. I was going to use a challenge that required snowflakes or snowmen. That's great! I still need to make some more Christmas cards. Um, yeah. No. EIC struck again. Well, it did have some help from my friend, Becky, who is anxiously awaiting the birth of her son. I was looking through my stamps and looking at pictures and looking at sketches on different sites...

So I took the photo of this necklace from Marmar's shop, the sketch from this month's Sheetload of Cards, which, btw, is the last issue, so if you want them, you should scamper on over and download them before they disappear in March, and Unity's Bouncy Blue - and made a card for Becky.

Becky, if you're reading this today, I hope you like it!
Check out the full list of people participating this week on the Unity blog.

Quick announcement. You can purchase {ippity} stamps from me. Anything I sell is going to help my oldest daughter, Meagan travel to Europe next summer. She'll earn both high school and college credit, as well as it just being an incredible opportunity to learn and grow. I wish I could go with her! I can't, but I'm going to do what I can to make it possible.

Thanks for reading - and happy holidays!
