New Name Frame..

I know you'll find this hard to believe, but I finally stamped today. I can't believe it myself.

I went to Wal-Mart tonight to get a birthday present for a party my daughter is going to on Sunday. In the middle of the aisle, lo and behold! The $3 frames! My Wal-Mart has been out forever. I only bought three of them and now I'm thinking I should go tomorrow and buy more. Anywhoo, I wanted to make something. I didn't have the brain power to be creative on my own, so I lifted this idea from Splitcoast. I have to add some embellishments and ribbon, but didn't have the right color on hand. I happen to have a handy Michael's coupon though....so I'll get some tomorrow.

One of the stamp sets I used was Garden Silhouettes. It is a retired Hostess set from the Fall-Winter 2007 Collection. If you missed out on this one, try Embrace Life on page 84. Here's a card made with it. This is my first time using this set and I just love it! I definitely need to do something else soon with this one.

Also, this is the disaster zone I created in that hour.
