What do you say?

We had a strange day weather wise here yesterday. It started off warm and sunny, and 15°. It was extremely windy all day, I thought the trees would blow away, and the wind was really warm. In the evening it was 30°, and the night was warm, too. Today they have promised us thunder storms again - crazy weather! 
'What do you say' is the theme this week at Simon says stamp and show. For my take, I have stamped an image from LaBlanche, using black archival ink, and placed it into an ornate frame (Graphics 45), and added a stamped sentiment that I got for 1€ from EBAY years ago.  I mounted the frame onto some distressed and embossed cardboard, and added some string and a couple of beads for the trim.


I spent a lot of time just having fun yesterday, trying out paints and sprays etc. The results can be viewed on Friday at PPF.


Here's wishing you all a great day, take care, have fun, and thanks for visiting!
