July VC Rocks! Blog Hop Anything But A Card

Hi all, your absent blogger here, welcoming you to this months VC Rocks! Blog Hop. This month's theme is ABC. Anything But A Card. You are sure to find some great gifts along the hop this month, so let's get started, shall we?

So, If you are following the hop, you should have hopped here by way Mary Jo Price's blog, Techno Stamper
Wasn't her project awesome? If you are just popping in and want to start at the beginning, and check out the great projects on the home page, click HERE . This will take you to the VC Rocks! blog, where you can see a list of all bloggers and start your journey.

Ok, on to my project. This is a frame that I made for my wonderful husband for Father's Day.

This is a frame, bought at a retail outlet for $1. I stamped the images from the set Delicate Doilies directly onto the frame using Versamark, then embossed with Stampin' Up's clear embossing powder. I then sponged Soft Suede ink all over the frame. Now there is some differences in the colors of the embossed images, but that must be due to the differences in the
wood itself. I'm sure it wasn't the creator, lol. I added a Thinking of You sentiment on Very Vanilla and punched it with (I believe) the Wide Oval Punch and layered it on a Decorative Label punched out of Soft Suede card stock.

My hubby loved it and the picture my daughter took of me 112.5 lbs lighter, and with my farmers tan, lol.

Ok, so that is my simple project for today. Hope you have enjoyed it. I hope to be back soon, but in the meantime it is time for you to hop on. Your next stop will be Jamie Adcock's blog, Wanna Be Creative. I'm sure she has something fabulous to show you, too.

sorry I didn't have time to put the pretty buttons up, actually I just couldn't figure it out, computer illiterate that I am. Will have them by the next hop, though.

thanks for hopping along with us. Comments are appreciated.
