Another Birthday Card

Well I have messed around all day trying to get all the house work done before going back to work tomorrow, man it sure was nice being off for 4 days. But I did manage to make a birthday card today. I have so many birthdays coming up the first of the year I figured I better get started on them .
This card is for a friend of mine (not telling who lol)

More Frames

I have really got into making some frames, I have one here I made for my friend Pat from where we got together yesterday and then I made one of my whole family. And then I have one I am uploading that I done awhile back of my youngest daughter and her little girl. The one of my whole family I used the new crackle paint on the chipboard flower by Maya Road.

Baroque Motifs Frame

I made a frame today with the Baroque Motifs stamps from SU of my brother and I.
I glued patterned paper to the ready made frame and stamped my images on it. I then sanded the edges of the paper and rubbed on some distressed weather ink. I used my scallop punch and then stamped the flowers on a light blue paper and used pop dots to make the flower stand out.

Stamping with my friend Pat

My very first online friend Pat Condra that lives in N Carolina came to visit me today!!!!!!! She is the sweetest and I am so thankful for her friendship and that we got to spend the day together today. We had a blast stamping away.
Here is a picture I took of us today so you all can see my dear friend.

I finally got around to doing my scrapbook challenge for Nov. Nothing like waiting till the last minute lol But I made a Thanksgiving layout of our get together.

Crackle Paint

I got a jar of the Mustard Crakle paint the other day so I thought I would upload my project with it for I know some people are saying theres is to thick but mine turned out good. I just added a thick coating of paint to the chipboard flower and it was so neat to sit and watch it crack. After it was dry I rubbed some vintage distressed ink over the top of the flower. The close up scan isn't that great but the crackle in it sure turned out good
