Picture me now

Ooooh look at me posting on a Monday - ooh la la! lol!  Well I am on hols after all and even though we are not going away as such (unless we get a few nice days to get away camping) I am hoping to post a bit more often.

As you can see I am still on the distressed theme and I bought several of these frames as future fixer-uppers.  They were a bargain at £1.80 each in the sale bin from mothercare.  Was so pleased with myself too with the gems on this as the large one I plucked out of the large clear rhinestone brads and the assorted black ones were the clear basic rhinestones which I painted with with my blender pen and some black stazon refill!

I will be happily entering it over at Allsorts (you've been framed), Creative Card Crew (hand made flowers) and Fab 'n' Funky's (stitch in time) challenges.  Have a great day all and I will see you soon x

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Artistic etchings, ink: crumb cake, black stazon refill, charcoal, mahogany and tea stain inks from distressing kit.  Card stock: whisper white and basic black.  Paper: newsprint and blushing bride designer series paper (hostess stack).  Accessories: rhinestone brads and basic rhinestones.  Tools: swirls scribbles sizzlit die, 1 3/4" circle punch and originals circles die.  Other: sewing machine.

Absolutely gorgeous Emma! Enjoy your time off and I hope the weather is good enough for you to go camping.

We're off to Wales for a few days, think I'm going to need full wet weather gear and a good book!

7am??? And you're off work??? WTF?

Only kidding, I am so not a morning person so any chance I get to lie I grab with open arms!!!

These frames are great - so would have looked at them, barfed then walked away!!! You've done a fab job.

Hugs, caryn xxx
