Home Decor Altered Key Holder

Good Evening All,
I wanted to show you these pics of this altered key holder that I made. I have been seriously working on it for about 2 weeks. It was one of those projects that while I had a picture in my head of what I wanted to do it was more difficult getting the right combination of elements!! lol!
I found this key holder plaque on a clearance shelf in TJ Max or Marshalls for $5. It was kinda beat up and it was mauve and off white in color with a picture of a rowboat in the top. It also had white hooks that were attached crooked so I replace them. I repainted the frame with several coats of brown and black acrylic paint and added 2 coats of matte finish Krylon spray. I used lots of different company products, too many to try and list them all. The 1st and 3rd sentiment stamps are from SU! and the middle is from CTMH. I used BasicGrey's Origins collection designer paper. Cardstock was from my scrap pile. Most of the punches and diecuts are from SU!, Marvy, and Spellbinders. I will be hanging this in my kitchen on the wall next to the door that leads to my laundry room and garage. I am super please with how it turned out and that it is finally finished!!
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

Mojo Monday 143 Dear Father...In-Law

Good Afternoon All,

It's time for another great Mojo Monday sketch!! I still needed to make a Father's day card for my Father-in-law and when I saw this sketch I immediately thought of 3 ties. I had to do some digging to find my Hero Arts tie stamp, but once I did, this went together fast-fast!! I am loving my end result!! I used the same designer paper from last week's Mojo sketch as it was still sitting on my desk!! But these colors work great for masculine cards. don'tcha think? Here is my supply list:

STAMPS: Tie(Hero Arts); Well Scripted (SU!)


INK: Dusty Durango, Wild Wasabi(it's coming back!!), Blue Bayou(retired in-color) (SU!)

THE REST: Circle punches, dimensionals (SU!); mini brads(Michaels)

Well, that's it!! Like I said, fast-fast and easy-peasy!!

Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by! See ya again soon!!
