Make It Monday

Here's my take on this week's MIM!

Other than the heart dies (Spellbinders), all of the products are Papertrey.  The center of the heart is the  Quatrefoil Die .  The Spellbinders dies did not work well to make the outer frame; I had to piece a little bit.
Wait, I lied.  I sponged Versamark around the edges of the heart layer, and added some of Martha Stewart's fine white glitter.
Fun to do as an exercise, but not a technique to do very often, lol!!

'Cheesy' Baby Cards

Yesterday my daughter and I were in Christmas Tree Shops. They had these party invites, 8 for $1.00. My kind of price, but the DD thought the glitter made them 'cheesy'. Huh. I thought I could turn them into baby cards... Here's the boy version...

I just love silk ribbon, sigh.  That's PTI's Spring Rain as the card base with a base layer of Memory Box paper on top.  The sentiment was a part of the party invite.

The inside...

The girl version- do you see how the baby hands form a heart?  Oh my, so sweet...not cheesy at all, lol!!
The girl version uses PTI's Autumn Rose as the card layer, with a piece of printed paper from a new 6 x 6 pad I also got at Christmas Tree Shop.   Autumn Rose ribbon.

Can you believe I am here playing? Right time? Right place?

I have a new laptop and the google blog program is new since I last played.  We'll have to suffer through!
That is Hibiscus Burst ink on Sweet Blush paper.  Card base is Amuse.

Card base, felt and ribbon are Autumn Rose.
