FWF is Close to Home

Hey everyone! It's Friday and time for Friends With Flair. I wonder who has the blinkie this week! I still don't have real internet at home, but we're closing in on the move date - and then we'll be good to go. We start moving on June 26 and will be fully in our new home on June 30!! I can hardly wait!!

Today I am at neither Starbucks nor Panera. I learned a nifty little secret. The community center here at Midway Commons (the neighbourhood where we live on Fort Meade) has an internet cafe *and* a WiFi connection!! I had NO idea. So I am about 2 blocks from home, sitting inside a very nice room, looking out at the pool. I'm sure it won't be nearly this quiet after the kids get out of school, but for now, it's very calm, and since I'm not in the internet cafe itself (I brought my laptop, of course), I was able to bring my own coffee! Yes, I have my priorities.

So, this week I got to break out my Unity/Cosmo Cricket stamps! I finally ordered the Garden Variety paper from Mandy at Limelight. She is just awesome. Seriously. And for inspiration, I looked to this spoon from EtsyInspired's shop of the week, Sunshyne Silverwear. Doesn't it remind you of the flowers on this great Cosmo dp?
I used this weeks sketch from Taylored Expressions, which is just too cute.

Don't forget to check the Unity blog for a full list of blog participants.
