Happy Friday to you

hope this week has been good for you- it's been a very fast one for me. of course I'm eyeball deep in cleaning up my scrap supplies- trying to get together a nice blog candy package- I have only 500 more hits to hit 10,000 hits so I want to give away a sweet prize to help me celebrate!

I am sharing lots of great Anna Griffin stuff today! I got lots of the new product she debuted at CHA- and let me tell you- it's gorgeous!! new printed acetates, gorgeous stamps and inks, flocked papers with BUTTERFLIES!! ohhh my !!!
this fun card is made with that leopard print stamp- and the fabulous stamp in coordinating colors. the black paper is acetate- can't wait to come up with a cool use for this! I cut the bfly out of some paper that is just covered in them- so pretty and tons to do things with! I added a gem, and my button with twine. isn't that something you can see being given to a friend! they would love it.
next is a nice cmasy card made with rubons and paper, the spirit saying, and the tree are both rubons- I added small prima gems to the tree. And I have to sneak in my favorite ribbon- bobunny! I pierced the paper with a big needle around the mat.
this card i made with a Martha stamp- colored it with some watercolor pencils. then I cut the whole thing out. I used some scrap papers- by Scenic Route and SEI , my devine impressions folder and added some buttons and twine. the rubon is MM.
another cmasy one- this one is all Anna Griffin- flocked stickers, rubon, paper and ribbon. I pop dotted the ornament after I cut it out for dimension.
this is another new collection from Anna- beautiful flowers aren't they! I cut the flower from the paper, added in a scalloped oval I traced from a template then cut with scallop scissors. Added some bobunny ribbon, and a decorator brad from Anna. those letters are also Anna Griffin.
Used some of the same papers on this card, adding in these blue flowers I cut out, then punched some more with a thumb punch, folded them in half then added them in under the leaves and petals. Those brads are Anna G, and I also used a journaling spot from her collection. the celebrate is an old MM rubon.

last but not least for today- I made this cute frame for Alizabeth, she asked me to make her some frames for her room, of course- I put my own kids in it- so no troubles with other kids pics, but it's easily changed out for her. More Anna Griffin papers, some more butterflies from the flocked sheet, I added in a chipboard piece that I markered with a big black sharpie, then added on some Heidi Swapp letters in green, that I used Stickles in blue on.
Added some buttons and brads to match, then I added a blue ribbon around the whole frame.

thanks for dropping in today! hope you have a wonderful weekend!
