Friday Fun # 72 and Unity Friends with Flair

TGIF!  This is my first week in years that I am working Monday thru Friday.  I think I like it.  :)  Having said that- I am REALLY glad it's finally Friday.  This weekend should be lots of fun and I also get to share my Friday Fun card with you. 
This month Kimme is the Friday Fun hostess and boy, is she really giving us a whopper of a challenge.  This week's challenge (FFC72) is to make a card with NO COLORING.  Get out your solid stamps and colored ink pads.  Extra points if you stamp your background instead of using patterned paper.  Well I figured I would go for broke and stamp everything (with the exception of a little bit of paper-piecing).  So here is my card using Unity's Tea Time Toile Background stamp and the June 09 Kit of the Month Perfect in Every Way. (this kit is one of my favorites that I go back to again and again) 

Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls cards.  We would love for you to play along- just use keyword FFC72 when uploading to SCS or link back to one of the Friday Fun Girls' blogs- that is if you are up to the challenge.  ;)

I do have one more thing I want to share with you- when I was looking for some solid stamps to use I opened a drawer that I haven't checked in a long time and look at all these stamps:
Some of them haven't even been inked up yet- can you believe it?  It is like Christmas in March.  :)
Thanks for visiting my blog today- be sure to check out the Unity Blog for the list of Friends with Flair participants.  It will definitely be worth your time to visit all the blogs.

I'm embarrassed to say how many stamps I have that haven't been inked up yet. In fact, I won't admit to that number!
Love your card. Makes me want a nice, hot cuppa.
