frame it

well today i am showing the birthday card i made for my brother who has a birthday in a few days ~loved the sketch over on scrapaddicts ~thought i would give it a try ~then over on penny black the challenge is "frame it"~ use a frame on your card!! ideal for my brother as he restores antique furniture and enjoys working with original materials and tools!! ~so found this wood looking paper to use for the frame and thought the outline corner stickers gave it the antique look!! used the pennyblack image and wording from my friend jo (only joking), various sized nestabilities, papers, brads and other embellishments from my stash!!

could i say a very big thankyou to all of you who have sent me awards and have tagged me over the last few weeks ~ i have been a terrible blogger ~and promise to get myself sorted and put them on my blog as soon as i get new ones (if their is anyone who still wants to ??) ~sorry again for not doing that before ~life has been mad here ~i have just run out of time!! ~will stop waffling now , and wish you a good evening. byeeeeeeeeeeeeee for now xx

See, you're getting them done. I must have made you think "hey, life isn't so bad after all" hee! hee! Great card Vanessa.

Bring some of your card with you on Sunday as I've got plenty of HH stamps you could use for men's cards.
