Thank you for the babysitters

I've been wanting to make some name frames for my nieces that always, always, always babysit (and love it!) my children during the week. When I go to Orange City every week to teach piano lessons, they watch them. Every single week. It's wonderful. I also teach them piano, so this way, we also have time for lessons every week and no one has to make a special trip. Win-win for everyone.
But, I wanted to make them something special. I helped paint their new room (they added onto their house) a month or so ago, and they painted it blue, green, and brown. It looks fabulous. I tried to coordinate with those colors, but I needed a little something more, so I added some pink (what teenager doesn't like pink?!). The girls are 15 and 16 years old.
Can you believe I whipped these up in 1 1/2 hours? Man, that Cricut was flying!!
I used a couple free fonts that I found off Font Freak online, and then just used my stamps and paper. They loved them. It's hard to tell, but I did clear emboss the rose and leaves in Katie's frame. Check the ingredients list for full supplies. My next post is going to be about my awesome rug I crocheted! See you then!
