Hi Folks, It's Saturday!! Yippee, start of the weekend the weather man says it's gonna be a good one,  hope you have something good planned? Me? I've made a little frame and a card!










 This little picture was made with an Artemio 10cm frame, painted and a little Graphic 45 paper added. The tiny bird from Tando was painted with Fresco paint and stamped with Artemio stamps.

 My card was an idea that came from the tiny bug climbing the grass, I wondered about his routine before he left his house LOL Check it out LOL Just goes to prove you just never know what goes on behind the scenes right? LOL



This week we have been showcasing the Artemio stamps the whole DT have made lovely samples over on the Craft Barn blog
Thank you for dropping in, I hope your weekend is fabulous, hugs Gay xx

Wonderful creations Gay! I love the frame, I can see it on my wall :D and I can only marvel and wonder as to how you got that paper on with hole cut for the centre so neatly!!! Love the card took, it really made me laugh when I saw the inside, wasn't expecting that! Have a lovely weekend in the sun, hugs, Chris xx

OMWord Gay - these are awesome works of art! The framed birdie is gorgeous - you would pay good money for that in a chic crafty boutique.
As for the bug card - what a fun design - I never knew that bugs went to so much trouble before popping out for a bite to eat!!
Have a happy sunny weekend - Sylvia xx
