Frame it ALL!

Happy Tuesday all my craft-happy buddies!!!  Hopefully you've all had a good start to yet another week!!  I super excited because my girls have started swimming lessons this week and are lovin' it!!!  I love when they come in from their lessons -their little drenched pool-heads and bodies wrapped in towels.....sportin' their cute little tans - they make me look like a Saltine cracker!!!

I am also super excited about TLC's new set, Frame It All!  There are 4 different fabulous frames in the set - each one so GORJUSS and versatile!! 

For my card today, I chose to use the Frame It All Floral frame and merged it with one of my favorite sentiments from TLC.  I can honestly say when I got the frame from Paulette, I jumped up and ran for my Copics!!

I have to confess -I was a bad girl and didn't write down all the colors I used - I got so wrapped up in shading that I lost track, lol.  I enlarged the frame and added the sentiment to make it the focal point of the card, but I know I'm going to use these over and over again with other images and sentiments, too!!   I think the whole set of frames, merged with various word art, on a set of cards wrapped in a matching ribbon would make a cute little present, don't you?  If you love the frame as much as I do and would love to see the rest of the set, click here!  I'm telling you - they are fabulous and you won't be disappointed!!
