Who says a 2x4 can't be cute?

I made this today, it's my Grandson Nick. He had his winter formal lastnight and he went stag! He looked so handsome as you can see for yourself.
My husband cut the wood for me in 6 inch pieces, I sanded it a little, painted in black , let it dry and then sanded the edges a bit to make it look aged.
I adhered the paper and picture with my xyron, used some ink to sponges the edges of the paper. I used stazon ink to stamp the love image, which is important so it doesn't bleed after spraying with a sealer. Tied a ribbon around it ...DONE! What a easy gift. I'm giving this one to my Daughter.
I think I will put these in my Etsy store and offer them for 10.00 I think that's a good deal, don't you?  I just need to make a few more samples then  I will post them there for sale
If anyone is interested in one just leave a message or email me

Have you ever?

Saw a more handsome Cowboy? I just love this picture of My Grandson Austin and had to share! I hadn't realized how much he looks like his Daddy did at that age until I posted this picture.

Can you keep a secret?

Not me, I was to excited and wanted to share with my bloggy friends, even my family doesn't know yet , don't ya feel so special?
I have decided to open up a Etsy shop and start selling some of my crafts there, it's still a work in progress though. I have been sick for a few days and it's really kickin my butt, however as soon as I feel better I will be the one "kickin butt" making my things and getting them listed in my store.
I just ordered some free Business cards from Vista print. I will keep you all posted and let you know when my Etsy store will be open for business. Anyone handy in making banners? I would like one to match the business card.
