Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving and that you are enjoying your weekend. I finally got into my craft room the past couple of weeks and actually created a few things! It felt like an alien thing at first, but soon I was happily in my groove making cards and other things.
My daughter, Ashley who owns Squigglefly asked if I would print out this image and color it for a picture she could hang in her baby's room. Some of you may remember that she is expecting my first grandchild on Christmas Eve. Well, that was the impetus I needed to get me back! I printed it out and colored it with Copic markers and then matted it with some designer paper and framed it in a frame I had.
Then a very dear lady I've recently become acquainted with, Pam Graham, sent me a drawing she did of a mama and papa bear with a baby bear. I printed it out, colored it with colored pencils and went to Hobby Lobby to find a frame. I found a white frame that was perfect, and I used a chalk ink pad to color a section of it.
I think it turned out so darling and I can't wait until she receives it!
While I was at Hobby Lobby I found a frame that I really liked, but it didn't work for the picture of the bears. Regardless, I kept going back to it and finally I bought it anyway thinking I'd find something to do with it. While I was walking through the store, I thought about using the frame to make a name plaque. I went over to the wooden letters to see if his name would fit in the frame, and it was a perfect fit!
The inside of the frame was a chalk board, but it pried off easily. I covered it with some designer paper and then I covered each wooden letter with scrapbook papers and adhered them to the inside of the frame. I added some little wooden animals that I also picked up at Hobby Lobby.
Then all I had to do was nail the backing back onto the frame! It stands up with an easel on the back, and I think it is so cute!
I have also made a few cards, but I will share them with you another time. Thanks for staying in touch with me!
