The Handy Fathers Day Gift!

Wow..a blog entry after almost a month!  Things have really started getting busy with summer holidays around the corner for the kids and with classes in full swing at Stamping Bella. I have a post today with the Father in your life, actually the real handy guy in your life! My hubby is a contractor so this will be perfect for him! I was inspired by Dena's post some weeks ago and asked her if she would mind if I did something like problem she said.....Thank-you Dena!
I bought this embossing folder that resembles a piece of wood once you put it thru the cuttlebug and I love the look it gives. I sponged Walnut Stain, Distress Ink over it and it really made it stand out. The images are all from Stamping Bella.

Well I am off to complete a paper cupcake/cupcake holder project for my next post! I hope to pop into the blogs and see what has been going on....see you soon.


  1. Lovely work Christine, perfect for father's day. Great embossing folder too.

    I know what your mean about lack of time. Sometimes I feel as if I don't achieve very much at all.

  6. They are super makes, Christine but soooo tiny. Please can you ensure that you photograph your creations separately in future so that I can see all the wonderful detail I know is there IRL!!! I can't believe it's the 8 June. You normally remind me that it's the beginning of the month with one of your sublime calendar pages. It's wonderful that you are so busy with life but I miss you, girlfriend! Hugs, Lesley
