LIM All about frames

Hi Everyone, How goes it with you? I'm having a chilly day, been sat at the computer ALL morning trying to get my printer to work, I've downloaded the drivers and I just can't get the darn comp to work out what it's supposed to do with them!! Mind you if I understood it a bit better it would help !
But on to happier things, I've made a card or two for LIM, great challenge. Thanks to Chrissy and Mandi for all their hard work
This week it should be simpler as we have a definite CAS challenge... 
it's ONE LAYER WEEK again.

Our challenge is entitled 
IN THE FRAME
We would like to see a frame of some sort or something in a frame... we'd like you to be as inventive as you like.
                                                             
My first card is a heart frame that I made from Eclipse masking tape and a M&S Per Uno tag.
I distressed with Tim Holtz inks Barn Door and then stamped with Andy Skinners Gothic Stamps, delish!!
 This card is using Crafty Individuals CI305 more delish, mmmm Tim Holtz ink Antique Linen and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, Time Flies sentiment set. 
Hope you like, enjoy what's left of Sunday TTFN Gay x
