Make it Mondays !!!

     Here is a card I made for the "Make it Mondays" series over at Nichole Heady's Blog Capture the Moment , she is the owner of Papertrey Ink, and is starting a new series, each monday there will be a video posted on her Blog with a technique demonstrated, you are then challenged to try this technique. This is my card for this weeks challenge. I had fun with this, digging through all my stamps looking for phrases that all related to Valentine's Day/Love. I used these stamps from Papertrey Ink Damask Designs, Mixed Messages, Daily Designs sentiments, Daily Designs, & Around & About Sentiments, mixing sentiments and images. I used their cardstock in Hibiscus Burst & Hawaiian Shores, stamped my sentiments in momento black ink. I used the Medium scallop border die to edge my card, and Hibiscus Burst ribbon on long the edge. I also used my glitter to add a little sparkle and some gems too that I colored with my Copic marker.  Thanks for stopping by.

Martha Stewart Doily Project

Well I finally got to this project last week and got it finished too!!! I call it my collection of favorite things!! I used up a whole lot of things from my stash, I did not buy a single thing for this, which I am very proud of myself for doing!!! A very nice lady at Two peas in a bucket sent me the Martha Stewart Doilies after I had been on one of the message boards at 2peas discussing the gorgeous project that Christine Middlecamp had been giving a tutorials on her blog Here is the link to her beautiful project. Christine is a master at layering, I just love her style and this project was my attempt at layering which I have a long way to go....but overall I am really pleased at the finished product, I just have to get a frame for it now and find the perfect place to display it.
