Friday Friends With Flair and New Stamps!

For SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 239: Around the World ~

My son will graduate from college in May and my daughter next May from high school, so we are planning a family trip to Europe to celebrate! One of the places in our top three choices is Italy. It was my favorite country in Europe the last time I went (a looooong time ago), and I would love to go back - especially to Tuscany!

So here is my Around the World card! I have been waiting to use some of my Debbie Mumm Travel Stack paper and this was a perfect challenge for it! My sentiment is from Unity's Everday Adorable and the cut out trees are from Tiny Trinity. This card is 5.25" square.

Visit the Unity blog to see the list of participating blogs in the hop today and what Friends With Flair is all about. You might win some Unity!

Tomorrow begins Sneak Peeks of the new Chicken Girl Design Stamps. There are two new CUTE holiday sets being released this month and I will have peeks this week for you right here! CGDS are carried exclusively by
