Happy Thursday, hope you are doing well out there.... I have a card today that I am entering for the first time, in the Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. This week, you will see a video by Dawn McVey showing how to make a background using die cut borders. The only border die that I own by PTI is the "In the Meadow" set which you can find on this page here . It is two different size snow drifts. I cut two of each of the larger one in the teal and brown and then one of each color in the smaller size, by taking a small bit of the straight edge on the teal off, I was able to layer these. I used Tim Holtz frames and florals embossing folder to give a little texture to the pieces, then layering all three of these on a piece of white card stock. My cute little image is "Tea Bird" by Phindy's Digital Stamps and can be found here . Phindy's Blog challenge #87 this week is a color quartet....
My card base and the twill ribbon are Stampin' Up certainly celery which along with chocolate chip and bermuda bay and a couple of flesh copics were used to color my image. The button is also one of Papertrey Ink contributions. I love the dies at PTI and if you have never tried these, please do....you will love them. I have a few of the other style dies that they sale and they all cut like butter... I am going shopping at the new release on the 15th and hope to have more to show you soon. Hope you will stop by both of these and check out the great things happening at their sites.
Now to a more personal note,
For those of you that read my blog you will remember that I started a gratitude journal which I showed you in my post last Saturday for Sugar Creek Hollow and for today I am thankful for the good news we received at the hospital today. Rick went in to have the light run down his esophagus to check for problems, he has been have a lot of heartburn and acid reflux, they did find a high heital hernia, but the doc seems to think that it can be controlled with his medication and then just keep an eye out for future problems, His blood work came back very good. Hope to be by soon to see you...thanks for stopping by here.
