Quick thinking for a hostess/housewarming gift

Got this great email from Debbie who is a faithful grungboard customer.

Debbie's email...
Last night at 5:30 pm I was cooking dinner and thinking about the next day. Oh, what fun we're going to have. My daughter and I are headed to a friends for a gathering for coffee and play date. I'll get to see her new house.

Her new house. I don't have a hostess gift, much less a housewarming gift.

So, I sat down after dinner and cranked this out. It was so much fun to make that I'm planning on making a few more, a couple for gifts and one for myself.

I inked the edges of the circles and smudged them in a little. After they were all applied, I used sepia toned modge podge on it. Then I applied the "JOY" grungeboard. I think the font of these letters goes perfectly w/ the look.

Don't you love someone who can just whip something up? Or are you one of those who can do that? You know scrapbook supplies are not just for layouts. If you have not ventured out with your scrapbook supplies I suggest you give it a try. I will try to post some fun ideas this week here on the blog. I love what Debbie did here with papers and grungeboard. I think my walls need one of these gorgeous wreaths.

Happy middle of the week tomorrow.

That is wonderful. Nope, not me, not the type who can come up with awesome stuff like this on the fly. I think only a select few are blessed with that talent (lucky girls!).
