Happy Friday!

Good morning everyone! I hope that today finds you well!
I wish that I could say the same. It seems that my wonderful DD has decided to share with me her cold that she just got over. Actually share with me and Mom. So as I sit here feeling not to up to par, I just wanted to share with you a couple of things.
One of the projects that I had made a few months ago for Paper Wings was a picture frame. I often joke with my daughter that I loved it when she was a baby. She never talked back - then she learned how to walk & talk and it's now all history!!

This was one of the easiest projects to do. I really don't remember if there was a pattern or not. I just took a round coaster, cut a hole in the center, covered it with paper (from TAC's Uptown Girl collection) and popped the photo in it.

For the back of the frame you can see that I used just plain pink paper. I took the piece that I cut out and "bent" it a tad then took 2 eyelets and secured the stand to the back of the card.

I added the butterfly on the wire and sandwiched it between the front and the back of the frame. I also added a piece of ribbon to the stand so it would not open too far and fall.

Do you remember when I said that I would not buy anything else til I use what I had? Well, no ~ I've been good. But I'm just bored!! Well my friend Betty stopped by this week and she had some new stamps that I got to ink up. It's from My Favorite Things and the set is called Totally Witchin'! So I was just as excited as if I got something new in the mail myself. And of course it is time to make Halloween cards ~ so that's twice as nice.

I used some SU! paper that I've got - Ghostly Greetings - to make this card.
It's a Basic Black card with different layers of the Ghostly Greetings paper mounted on it. The image was colored with my pencils and gamsol.
I made a couple of photo corners from the extra pieces (Betty, you'd be proud of me!) and used my Sakura gel pen on their stockings and I was done.
It's kinda funky, but I like it.
Well - if I don't make it back here this weekend to post it's either because 1. I'm feeling icky or 2. I'm better and helping my SIL sheet rock a couple of rooms in her home.
Have a great one!
