Unity Friends with Flair

Hello Everyone. It is Friday and time for Friends with Flair.  I made a watercolor card using my new Phyllis Harris set that I won as blog candy on Patty's blog:
She contacted me and told me I won one of her give aways.  I did not expect it to be an entire set.  So happy.  I love PH stamps.  I decided to play with the water color distress markers and color these images.  I used my new corner chomper deco edge (that I purchased with my 60% off coupon at JoAnn's recently).  I still thought it needed something so I added a piece of glitter tape from American Crafts.  What so you think?  Should I have left it alone or does the tape add something?
I survived my dd graduation party and I had everything ready without too much stress.  I made her a banner and hung up pictures for each year, so that everyone could see how she has grown.  Many didn't think she had changed much.  I stamped 3X 4 cards so that guests could jot her a note of encouragement, I made her hat box for cards, 8 centerpieces for the tables and the food.  Gotta love Pinterest for ideas.  I thought I would share some of the pictures.  Tomorrow is the big day, the actual ceremony.  It is hard to believe that I have one graduating.  Where does the time go?
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in for a visit.

Graduation themed food.  Diploma Swiss cake rolls and Pirouline cookies wrapped with pull and peel Twizzlers.  I also made Banana Split Bites which was a piece of strawberry, banana slice and pineapple slice on small picks and frozen.  Then dip in chocolate and add nuts or coconut to top.  These were a big hit.
