Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 3




This versatile set is called Hello Sunshine, great for all year and all occasions. I used to do a lot of cross stitch before I discovered stamping so I have tons of supplies begging to be used. I made a magnet using one of those frames, coloring the pretty sunshine with various Copic markers, also available at Mark's Finest Papers store.
My second sample uses Basic Grey Indian Summer designer paper.

Check in on the MFP blog to get all of the information about the blog hop and prizes!

Oh, Joanne, I was a cross stitcher too. Still have my DMC threads in my wooden "briefcase"....need a color?

Your little frame is just adorable. I remember those (there's a couple on the Christmas tree).

Love your card too.

Beautiful projects. Great job. Love the magnet.

I've got some of those cross-stitch frames floating around my house, too. I love what you did with it! And your card would be perfect for a Florida retiree!

I used to do a lot of cross stitching too, I actually have a project sitting in the living room that's allllmost done! Neat use of the frame, that would look cute any number of places.

Joanne--these are wonderful. You did such a great job with this set. I especially like the framed sun! Are you going to use it as an ornament? TFS

LOVE that magnet (I thought it was an ornament at first, LOL), you used such pretty colors and that image is so pretty it really can stand alone and stand out.

Very clever idea for using your on-hand materials! Great design - the framed sun would make a wonderful gift.

Emily Keaton said...

How creative to use a cross-stitch frame as a magnet for this adorable image!

Pat Jandacek said...

Great magnet and the card's dp selection is perfect!

Pat Jandacek said...

I thought I posted but don't see an entry so will try again. If it eventually shows up, please excuse the double entry. The magnet is great and the image perfect for it. Your selection of dp for the retirement card is perfect, a talent I don't have but I do enjoy the works from those who do.

Pat Jandacek said...

We have a lot of ex-cross-stampers making comments...count me as one of them. I like your work and enjoy the result of those who can select dp that 'works' such as on the retirement card.

Susan Raihala said...

Gorgeous, both of them!

E. Marie said...

What creative and beautiful projects.

Roxie said...

Nice job with the layout, nice projects.
