Do you Believe?

Happy Monday. I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed your weekend and for those of us who "Fell Back" with Daylight Savings time.. That extra hour of yesterday. I personally chose to use mine as ... sleep.. something I haven't had enough of lately.. It felt sooooooo good...

Yesterday was my sister's birthday (She and Allie Edwards share that special day... Happy Birthday to both of you :) ... so I spent my morning making her a 'name frame'... to go along with her birthday gift. I like how they came out.

I apologize for the glare on this one from the sun.. But I prefer to use natural lighting when using my camera. It helps the pictures to come out better...

The frames I picked up in Walmart for $2 or $3 each. I used Cosmo Cricket DS paper and Fancy Pants DS papers.. (I will double check later today to make sure I have them correct).. All tags were punched using by Sizzlet tag punch on my Cuttlebug. The blue tags are Buckaroo Blue and the red are Cranberry Crisp.

All lettering was done with rub-on's. I specifically used different fonts to give it an eclectic look... I then stamped snowflakes on the tags and DS paper's using my snowflake serenade stamp set in brown stazon, close to cocoa and buckaroo blue. I aged the tags using a little of my 'coffee shop' glimmer mist and Tim Holtz walnut stain. It's a little hard to see but I embossed snowflakes on the buckaroo blue paper with iridescent ice embossing powder. My intent was to add a little shimmer. The hardware is either hodge podge hardware, large pewter brads or from MM.. Ribbons include Martha Stewart chocolate sheer ribbon, SUP blue double stitched, vanilla wide grosgrain, chocolate wide grosgrain, burgundy grosgrain and gold sheer ribbons.

I have to give a quick shout out.. I'm so thrilled this morning. I am awed by the talent I am surrounded by on a daily basis. I soak up all of the fabulous inspiration from each and every one of you. On almost a daily basis I quickly check out the blogs on my blogroll... So when one of these all inspiring women comment on my blog.. I feel deeply honored. Debbie Olson (Thinking Inking) commented on my fall cards. Thank you Debbie.. You made my day... :)
