Special Friend

Welcome to my second Mojo Monday 224 entry.  Here again is this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

Once again I used My Mind's Eye papers (Quite Contrary and Lost and Found Two).  Seriously, I just love MME!!  I love the weight and texture of their papers and their designs are beautiful and even papers from different lines coordinate beautifully together!  For this second card, I was stumped as to what kind of  round embellishment to use.  Then I thought about making a folded rosette!!  I LOVE how the rosette turned out! 
 While searching through my punches, this square "inchie" punch with pretty edges caught my eye.  It's from Creative Memories, and I think I've only used it once.  I love how the punched square looks on the rosette!
The adorable rose ticket is from Made by Janet, the sentiment is Inkadinkadoo, and the paper border across the middle is from Girl's Paperie.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!  :)

Mojo Monday 224

Finally... a new card!  I have been itching to do some papercrafting!!  I decided to MAKE time for doing something I love- making cards, layouts, and other scrappy things!  For inspiration, I used a card sketch from Mojo Monday 224:

Here is my take on this week's sketch:
 I LOVE My Mind's Eye paper and embellishments!  I used the Lost & Found Two "Sunshine" 6x6 Paper Pad for this card.
 Isn't this little bird cage sweet?  That's also from the MME Lost & Found Two collection.
My other supplies include cardstock: (Core'dinations Black Magic Collection), sentiment stamps: (Inkadinkado and Unity Stamp Company), metal clock embellishment: (Bo Bunny), ribbon: (May Arts), Stickles: (Ranger).  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  I'd love for you to leave me a comment!

Altered Christmas Frame

I realize that Christmas is over, but I wanted to share this altered picture frame I made.  

I started with a $1 frames from Michaels and painted the back and all of the edges with white paint.  I used this beautiful Vinage Holiday paper from Daisy D's to cover the frame.  I love it!  (Unfortunately, I believe that Daisy D's is out of business.)  I tied a pretty piece of ribbon around the bottom of the frame, then hot glued on a few sprigs from a Christmas garland- also from Michaels.  The pretty gem in the center of the bow is a brad from K & Company.  I love these simple frames, and they make great gifts!  Thanks for stopping by today!!
