Today I decided to play along with the gals at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the link to there blog if you would like to see what the design team made or to play along.  http://www.freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/2012/06/freshly-made-sketches-39-sketch-from.html  Here is the sketch:



I worked on spray painting some picture frames and other items for the house last night.  I ran out of aqua spray paint so I need to go buy some more and put the final touches on my stuff.  I also want to spray my calendar frame.  I wish it wasn’t so darn windy during the day all the time as it is harder to see how the coverage is going on in the evening.  I just went out and touched up my jewelery holder and a wall decoration that will be going in the bathroom with the Chocolate brown spray paint, and I sprayed some more clothes pins red.  I will have lots of cool projects to show you when I get them all finished!

Lady Di and I just had a gab fest, and then I quick made this card.  I had most of the elements all ready made so it went together fast.  Several years ago I made up these sundae dishes with Susie Smiths sizzix die.  I first cut it out of a Raisin Bran cereal box, and then ran the die through several times with different pattern papers and then I mixed and matched them to come up with this cute little sundae chipboard piece.  The background is embossed with the Stampin’ UP! Snow Burst embossing folder, and then I sponged it with a sponge dauber and Tim Holtz distress ink.  I think the little Snow Bursts kind of look like sprinkles!  The rick rack I dug out of my borders drawer.  It is so handy to have this stuff all made up.  It was made with the Papertrey Ink ric rac die.  I get so much use out of that.  I love it!  The phrase was stamped with SU’s Fabulous Phrases, and I used a Prima Flower and brad on the ice cream sundae.   Hmmmmmm……ice cream….where can I get me some!!!!!  Have a “sweet” day!  Elaine
