Season of Joy frame

Today was kind of a dreary, rainy day, but we needed the rain. It did clear up later in the evening. I didn't get any stamping done today and tomorrow my hubby and I are going on a "day trip" over to Longaberger land. I haven't been there in 5-6 years...thought it would be fun to go out to the manufacturing plant and visit the town of Dresden. It is only about 45 minutes away. There is also an apple orchard along the way I want to stop and visit. It is supposed to be sunny and in the mid 70s...so a good day for a ride. The leaves are JUST starting to turn colors.

This is another Make A Gift challenge I finished up for my SSUS partner, Jennifer. I have a HUGE stack of these shadowbox frames I picked up at the Target $1 spot last year. I wanted to find time to make them for the craft fair, but really forgot about them. (If you are thinking deja vu, I did make a similar one for Blog Candy a while back...) This one I moved the Faux Diamond Dust flowers to the glass portion on the outside of the frame. They were punched with the 5 petal punch with 1/4" circles for the centers. I also used Dashing Designer paper in the background, however, you don't see much of it from this view. The image was colored with Real Red and Old Olive markers. It is much more impressive in person than this picture!

I'm thinking I may do some of these up for my husband's work staff...although last year I made them Happy Holiday name frames...so maybe this would be too similar?
