I did it! I got my inlaws 40th Anniversary gift made! I have been thinking of this for months and months and months! Im talked since like spring! I bought the canvas for it back in March I think! So I painted it last week (black) and last trip to Archivers I picked up the paper I wanted to use. I decided to stay with the classic balck and cream. They have all different colors in their home, and not knowing exactly where she would put this, I figured black and cream were a safe bet.
So Saturday I ran up to my LSS (Scrappin Shack!) and got some bling to go on it. Then it just kinda all flew together! I love it when that happens. I probably put this together in about an hour. All the canvas and chipboard was already painted, and the rest just kinda fell into place! Anyway.....let me know what you think! They get it at the begining of October.
And keep your eyes open. I am getting very close to 100 posts, which means BlOG CANDY!!

wow!! I'm actually going to make it this month! Hahah!!
This month, in continuing with CTMH celebrating September as National Stampin Month! I am going to be using the new CTMH distressing kit and all the little goodies found inside of it for the next few Make It Monday's! You've seen this technique before if you have looked at the catalog at all. It is on page 37. We are going to use the Black Stubble tool. Now, you can use this with the ink pads. Much cleaner and more variety...but heck..who needs that!
I dipped this baby in paint!! Ha!!
Here is how mine came out.
I dipped, plopped and twisted. It make new swirly circles. I was not thrilled with how the black paint looked, so i added a little glittery iridescent paint in the same manner.
This card is a bit funky, I made it for a very funky gal who lives very far away and who is turning 30 today!!!! What a great year it was! So this is for you Meag!!!
There are so many things you can do with this kit. It is not just for card makers! Check it out soon if you get a chance. I will be back soon with more tips on how to use the kit! Have a great Monday!
