Frame It!

Guess who is back? At least, for a little bit. Until after the middle of October, I will be in and out. Life has been very busy. My sister came for a visit, I've been doing some re-decorating, and so many other things. I made three cards Wednesday and Thursday for Splitcoaststampers. So, I'll try to get them uploaded here.

Does my font size look large to you? Sure does to me. If I choose normal, it is really small so I have it on large. I think it is larger than it should be. 

I made my card using the Darice Easy Frames which will let you leave an unembossed area when embossing with an embossing folder. Do I love those things! I wish I had defined my image more and there is a way to do that. Maybe next time I can remember to do it.  I used a mask for my image as it was larger than the area I had allowed using this particular frame. The set comes with seven wonderful frames. I guess they have been around a while but I didn't have them....found these at my Hobby Lobby or Jo Ann Stores. I think the latter.

If you are not familiar with these frames, here is a tutorial. It is so easy.

I added a bow and sentiment and that was it. 

I'll enter my card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes

Duh! Why did I put my blog as @ instead of  dot on my card? Crazy me.
