THEN, I saw where one of my favortie bloggers, Lemonade Makin' Mama made one of these! (Tutorial found here.)

Isn't hers gorgeous??? I mean, it turned out amazing! So amazing that it inspired me to make one of my own! Mine was somewhat of a simple project since I decided to use a frame that I already had. It was only a 16x20, so I knew that it would be a much smaller version than the original PB and LMM's but I was ok with that if it meant I didn't have to build a frame ;) So, I painted the frame red, distressed it a little, added some wire & mini clothespins and voila! I LOVE it!!! Here are a couple terrible photos of how it turned out! :p
My 'joy' letters are a little large, but that is the size they came in. I was so happy to get them 50% off at Hobbly Lobby. They had discontinued the 'Y' and it was in a completely different aisle. I had to ask for help to find them but I am so glad I did because I almost gave up on getting it!
Well, that's all for now I have lots more decorating to do and a little boy that needs a nap ;)
If you want to make one of these card holders, be sure to check out LMM's post, she did a great job explaining how to make them!
Happy decorating! :)
