You're FRAME-azing!

Hi friends!

In my last post, I eluded to the newest challenge at

Splitcoaststampers .... hosted by me :)

Every 5th Saturday, it's my turn to host

and the spot I chose for this challenge is:  Picture Frames!

It's a fun site filled with not just frames ...

but inspiration in the forms of photos, colors, artwork!

Like this one ↓

I love the soft look of this photo from the pale sunrise sky

to the wonders of the city life and still waters.

I chose Sweet Escape - one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps 

(gahhhhh! I'm so SO sad they closed!)

I created this card by created a watercolor wash background

and let that dry.

I added a snippet of watercolor paper to the bottom as the water

and popped the uncolored city image onto the front.

If you'd like to be inspired by Picture Frames, 

you can find it here.

They also have a Pinterest Board filled with inspiration, too!

My husband is off for the long weekend 

and our 'to do ... together' list is quite long.

I'm also hoping to take in some quiet reflection at the veteran

cemetery, like this one in Luxembourg where I've visited

as my husband also wanted to visit General Patton's grave.

So I hope to be among the first to wish you a WONDERFUL 

and long weekend, friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
