Midnight Madness for Emily

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit I'm behind on some gifts. I just finished 2 baby gifts for siblings (one is 2 years old and this little girl is 6 months). I love creating name frames as gifts and had lots of fun blinging this one up for a little girl. I don't know if this will count for the Midnight Madness Challenge since it's not a card, but the sketch was perfect for Emily's gift.

The extra challenge was to create a holiday creation, but I didn't fulfill that option.

I didn't use any lace on this creation, but the song just evokes the picture of this adorable litle girl and her pretty face!

Close Up Details
Am I the only person who sees something totally not craft related and finds a way to incorporate it into a project? See those cute metal 'ribbons' and rhinestone flowers? They were in the clearance bin on the fabric side of Joanns. They were sold as a set to be dress/bra straps! I was thrilled to snap them up for $3.97 and immediately thought of usng them for a name frame or scrapbook layout.

  1. Doesn't have to be a card - this is a wonderful name frame. I am sure the recipient will really love it. What a clever idea to use those bra strap items on your card. I make these for my Grandchildren too but not a nice as these!! The Midnight Madness Design Team thanks you for playing in our challenge.

  2. This is wonderful. In case you didn't notice, my Design Team Entry was not a card. It was a framed Gingerbread Village. You don't have to make a card, you can use the sketch to be inspired to do anything! This is just fabulous....I think we are kindred spirits. This is a wonderful gift and is sure to be a treasured keepsake. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week. I am thrilled to stop by and be inspired by your work.
