Something new I've tried out. My friend who had her 90th birthday said she was going to try to frame her card so I tried this out (I didnt use her card I started from scratch again and put it in a box frame -see if you can find the ladybird?

(If your puzzling why the frog is in the picture its a joke we share between us about the day we found a frog (named him Jacob) in my garden and the laughter we had that day- but that's another story)

Its really quite simple Gil all you need are a few copies of a nice photograph a pair of sharp scissors or craft knife some sticky foam pads and glue and a box frame - you should have a go its quite relaxing
My problem was finding box frames- to buy them via internet it was costing more for postage than it was for the frame and I coudnt find what I was looking for in the shops so I finally went to the gentleman who frames my paintings -should have thought of that first- and we managed to come up with what I wanted at a very reasonable price and I should get them tomorrow so no need to guess what I'll be trying the next few days.-and I've still to get things ready for the painter (oooooohhhh dont want to think of that now)
Thank you for the compliment -I would just like to see you and Rosie try something ocne you get started you wont want to stop Think Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

My artistic talents are limited to putting dishes and silverware away these days!

Went to collect the frames today and he had made a mistake with the number I had ordered and he had made 12 but they were so reasonably priced I said I'd just take them, now I have to fix the wooden box part and hey presto! I'll be on my way.
Made a different type of card at the craft group today and it would fit nicely into a box frame too-- Think Think Think but this one would need a different size frame (rectangular) so he told me to take the card down and he'd make me a frame while I waited and then decide if it was ok.
But as I said previously - must get priorities right and get ready for the painter's return - now I'm just wondering if I was feeling OK when I booked him!!
