Andrew's hat holder

I thought of this for Simon Says Monday challenge (a is for ...).  I made this for Andrew to hang his hats on.  I used wood pieces from a local store,  covered them with paper and used rub on's to put my son's name on the big A. The base is painted with crackle paint and framed with ribbon.  The nuts, bolts and spark plugs are donated by my husband from his work space.  I dabbed white paint on them too.

A is for Andrew

Ohhhhhh, it feels soooooo goooood to finally do a page and to be mostly happy with it.  It's a rather plain page with few embellishments but I think I prefer it that way.  Simon Says Monday challenge is "A is for...." .   Seriously,  A stands for Andrew.  We use the sign A for Andrew's name all the time.  When Andrew was three he could verbally spell his name.  (He lost that ability after a seizure not long afterwards and has not been able to master the verbal spelling again.)  The paper is Kaisercraft,  the colours are the ones he wears all the time.  It goes with the red hair.

Card - You.

This is the second die and stamp set that I bought from Simon Says Stamp.   I will enter this into the Simon Says Wednesday challenge - embossing and the Simon Says Monday challenge - Anything goes.    It feels so good just to get half an hour of craft in.  Can't wait for school to start and having a bit more time for craft.

Card - Always.

I am so excited. I was finally able to order stamps and matching die from Simon Says Stamp.  These two sets that I bought,  I have been coverting for a while.   They came yesterday and I have had a small chance to play with them.   This is the card I made.  So I am entering it in the Simon Says Monday challenge,  Anything goes.  And in just over a weeks time the kids are back to school (yayyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!) and once the house is cleaned back to normal,  I will finally get a chance to really play!
