Patchwork Frame

It's been slow around here lately - we've just returned from spending some time with our Grands in Texas, and it's hard to get going again!  I thought I'd share a card I made at the same time as THIS COFFEE CARD, using the leftover frame that resulted.


supplies: white cardstock, Doodlebug Cream & Sugar collection, plus other small-print papers, Simon Single RosesPainted Hugs, and Stitched Rectangle dies, tiny buttons

I simply glued the leftover frame onto a white card base, then filled in the center with some favorite squiggle-flower die-cuts and a sentiment - look, Ma, no stamping!  I love it when I can get 2 cards from 1 work session!

Hope all of my USA friends have a fantastic 4th!

A beautiful card, as always, Lin! Hope you have a wonderful 4th, also. If you have time, please e-mail me your e-mail address; I lost all of the ones I had. (jmjmeadows38@gmail.com)

Ooh, Lin, this is beautiful, and I love the DP and how you've used leftovers from your other beautiful card to make this one. Love the sweet flowers and the "hugs" die especially! Have a fun and safe weekend, sweet friend! Hugs!
