Friends with Flair...and it finally dried!

TGIF! It's Friends with Flair Friday, plus there is a new Monthly Challenge!



Paper Studio and Papertrey Ink cardstock
GlimmerMist
Unity Stamp Co. stamps
Ribbon Boutique ribbon
PTI twine


The monthly challenge is to use leaves. I don't have any fall-ish dp because I don't like orange, so I had to make some, which started an all-afternoon long process. I sprayed the daylights out of some cardstock with GlimmerMist to get the fall colors for the leaves...and had to let it dry. When it was mostly dry, I couldn't get it to stick, so I brought out the Mod Podge....and had to let it dry. While I was waiting, I tried paper-piecing the leaves on the tag...which had to dry before I could trim it. I usually go for quick and easy, so this was torture. This is what I get for hating orange, but at least the new stamps got inky!

Thanks for any comments you have- it's always a wonderful was to start the weekend!
