A Bit of FUN

Well what a week! I came down with a horrible cold just as I was bragging (to anyone who would listen) that I had not had any Illness this winter. Oh no not me LOL. Well after going through a box or 2 of tissues and having rested and monged out for a couple of days (the Diamond bought me loads of cups of tea - Heaven), today I thought I would tackle the JFF "Anything you Fancy" theme week. A great choice challenge ladies after a challenging month which personally I have thoroughly enjoyed. So many lovely comments, Thank You for those.
I chose to use a little frame for this, which I painted pale rose acrylic and  masked using dusky rose acrylic. Once dry; I stamped the lines with purple ink. I embossed the S (for Sandra) and stamped into it hot to get the impression(I am making a special 50th birthday gift, so I needed to practice this technique) I finished off with a glimmer sprayed flower (lava Red) and a hand written shrink plastic sign for JFF. Simply but enjoyable especially as I feel rough, (Sorry just going fr the sympathy vote LOL). Have a lovely week and THANKS for stopping by. XOXO

Hope, as I am so late, that your cold is better or at least on the way to being. Hate colds and kind of getting over one ;myself.
Love your little canvas and what a great S you have done - I love stamping into hot utee which I have melted onto baking parchment. You get some great shapes.
Thanks for joining us at JFF - hope to see you again.
