Friends w/Flair Friday: It's what's on the Inside...

Hi all!

HOORAY for Friends with Flair Fridays!  As promised, I'm back today to show you the inside contents of the box I made yesterday for our UNITY Thursday as we were hoppin' around w/ the DT!


Today for Friends with Flair Friday, I have a few SUPER simple cards to show you that made up the contents of one of the boxes I made for teacher gifts.   I spent SO much time on the boxes themselves, but didn't want to give them empty, of course, so I came up with these super simple notecards using both the December KOTM and also the "Because of You" set from Ippity!  that I purchased from my friend and Ippity Chick Randi Wall!


I really love the images and sentiments I chose for the notecards-I think they make a great, everyday set, and SIMPLE is key!


Here is the box up close again in case you missed yesterday's post.  I LOVE the hot air balloon image from the December Kit of the Month, {Delightful Moments}, and used Cosmo Cricket "Girl Friday" DP (available with the December Scrapbooking Kit!) to decorate it.   Hope you like it as much as I do!  (oh, and yeah, I went  crazy on the buttons ;)


Be sure to check out the UNITY BLOG today for a complete list of who's hoppin'...there's lots of FLAIR in the AIR today, folks, so grab a chair, get comfy, forget about all the errands you still have to run, and hop with us!

Later guys!
Jess ;)
