What a fun and easy technique for this week's Make it Monday! You can find the tutorial here: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2011/08/make-it-monday-28-glitter-die-borders.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+typepad%2FSWJb+%28%7Bcapture+the+moment%7D%29 It was fun to make my background with the awesome sunflower stamp set. I used Mat Stack 1 for my die, and punched a circle for the sentiment and popped it up with some SU dimensionals. The colors are Ocean Tides and Blush, with Fresh Snow, Ocean Tides, and Versamark inks. Can't wait to try this out again!

I managed to make one card over the weekend, even though my step-daughter flew in from Los Angeles for a visit. It was wonderful, as we hadn't seen her for a year and and half! We had a blast visiting the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, and Woodford Reserve. It was sad to say goodbye, as she lives so far away! Hopefully the next time we are together won't be another year and a half....
My card today used this week's Viva la Verve sketch, a Dare to Get Dirty challenge, and this darling image by Mo Manning. She is colored with copics, and her shirt is paper pieced. The papers are from Lily Bee Picket Fence. Have a great Monday everyone!

I started with a Stamping Up stamp called On the Green. I used markers to color the words "Hole in One" in black, and then the rest in Always Artichoke. I added a background layer, and then paper pierced around the edges. Then I used some Basic Gray Manilla paper as a base for the little triangles. I thought they looked a little like flag sticks! I stitched around the edge of that paper, to make it look like a little frame, using some green thread. Then I added a couple of eyelets, something I hadn't pulled out in a while, and I need to use more! For the bottom embossed layer, I found some old cardstock, that was a little darker than Kraft, and used some Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink to highlight and roughed up the edges a little. I also made a envelope with Chevron Stripes, a new PTI set.
By the way, my husband has had 2 Hole in Ones, and I've had one too!
