A Simple Magnet of Encouragement

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Sometimes we all have rough days, and yesterday was one of those for me. I just needed a bit of crafty time, so I put together a simple magnet to either place on my refrigerator or card stock credenza to remind me that better days are ahead. it was the perfect little thing to add to the Bugaboo 'Anything but a Card' post for their inspiration and challenge blog.

I used the pretty 'Frame It - Meant to Be' image and re-purposed a microwave popcorn box for the backing. 2 pieces were die cut with the SU! Top Note die, painted, and then distressed with inks. magnetic strips were added to the back. shimmerz paint was added to several words of the main image and glitter pen accents to the butterfly trails. ribbon snippets are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the chrysanthemum is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

sorry for the horrid photo. it really was the best of the ones I took. my tremors are getting pretty bad these days and I just flat out can't see well either. my sight is going, which is part of the reason for the yuck day. oh well. trying to stay focused on the many blessings in my life. :)

I'll be back in just a bit with my challenge project for The Digi Bells. hope to see you then!
