Hi everyone!  I hope you're having a great start to the week.  This weekend while all the men in my house were busy watching football, I snuck away to my craft desk to play.

I had a leftover 6x6 Burlap Canvas from Canvas Corp and I wanted to give that popular "chalkboard technique" a try.  I stamped this pretty sentiment from Lovey-Dovey Setiments with Versamark onto a Black Licorice Circle STAX, then poured on my White Embossing powder and gave it a zap with my heat tool.  

I layered that circular sentiment onto a 1/4 inch Rosette Die-namics.  That is perched on top of a Heart Doily Die-namics cut from Red Hot Felt.

I added a cluster of Fishtail Flags and a triad of MFT Buttons.  The Hemp Cord that MFT sells is so reasonably priced and lasts forever! Even when you use it constantly like I do!  Tip, if you're using a triad of buttons make sure to thread them differently, one two holed button, one criss cross stitched - oops, I forgot my own rule, I should have had a two holed ladder stitched button - but I remember thinking I'd been hiding a long time in the craft cave and that the guys were probably ready for some dinner.  

On the top corner I've used my Photo Corner Die-namics - I've been using those babies a lot lately.....  I cut it from corrugated cardboard, painted with crackle paint and then distressed the edges.  I've clipped on a set of the Keys and Locks Die-namics cut from Steel Grey cardstock.

Now that my canvas is all photographed and blogged I'm ready to send it into my husband's office to tuck on his bookshelf. He's been logging some crazy hours lately, and thought he could use a reminder.

Here's the list of MFT supplies I've used today, thank you SO much for stopping by!
