Hip Hop Hangover-Charming Gardeners

YAY! It's Friday! The last HHH of 2008! If you haven't checked out the UNITY site, you still have time to take advantage of some AWESOME deals! TONS of stamps are 50% off and there is free shipping if you use the code JOY!

I made this for the distressed challenge that Jeanne had for Hip Hop last night, and I won a $5 gift certificate to Unity for this project! YAY me! The DP is Basicgrey's Ambrosia (LOVE it) and the stamp is Unity's Charming Gardeners. I actually bought this frame for $1 at The Dollar Tree! I used my black pigment pad to drag across the frame to weather it. I also distressed the edges of my sentiment and then inked the edges too. I had this grey scrap of ribbon and tied it around the frame. I bent the phlanges off of decorative brads and then used my super sticky tape to stick them to the frame! Super easy-took me 15 minutes to make! The opening in the frame is 5 x 5 so that gives you an idea of how big that stamp is!

I MUST finish my Christmas cards today and get them mailed! No ifs, ands or buts about it! Will's last day of school is today and the twins are going to the sitter so that I can get some things done!

Happy Stamping!

Emily
