I hope you all have a love Valentine's Day. I know I haven't posted much this last week, I just haven't been able to get to my crafting table. However I did manage to stay up late one night and do something I've been dreaming about these last few months. It all started with a friend of mine, she sells SU and she makes these beautiful frames with punches and stamps by SU. I've been wanting to go to one of these little meetings but haven't been able to make it over. So she sent me a picture and I got inspired from there, of course I put my own spin on it (like we crafters do). :D
Gotta make it your own, right?
Well when I finished it I was like, Wow, I made that. (hehehehee) Have you ever said that to yourself about your own work. (just an awesome feeling to be proud of what you make)
I used a couple of stamps, but not much, mostly I used stickers and odds and ends I had in my stash.
I hope you all like it:
