FWF - One of a Kind

Did you guys have fun at Hip Hop yesterday? I know I did! I had fun sneaking in to the GinaK Designs release party, too. Shhh!!!

For Friends with Flair, I thought I'd play with the new April Kit of the Month - and try something new-to-me. Yes, with all the inspiration from yesterday's Hop, I finally broke down and sewed on my card!! As much as I sew, you'd think I'd have done it by now, but I was being a big chicken.
Not too shabby, eh? I thought I'd play along with EtsyInspired #84 to help wake up my mojo. Cose Dolci, this week's shop, has a lot of patchwork pillows, which, when added to the sewing I saw on the hop yesterday, kind of turned into a neon sign that said "Hey, Carole, sew on your card already!!"

All of the patterned papers (and the green cardstock) I used came from the Beeez Knees kit from the Caffinated Cropper.

Quick little FYI - the square images from the April KOTM (Together We Bloom) exactly fit the 2" nestability square if you want them cut out without any border, so stamp first, then cut. You can just barely see the inner outline when the nesti is properly placed.

Check out the Unity blog for a full list of Friends with Flair. Someone is hiding that blinkie!
