You are awesome!
Happy Monday! I do hope that you all had a wonderful Easter. My daughter was home for the weekend and it was so nice to have her with us - and to get together with extended family for lots of food and fun!
This week at My Craft Spot, we are challenging you to "shake it on". Use glitter, flock, tiny beads, etc., to decorate your projects. This certainly was a challenge for me as all my glitter and flock are packed away. That said, I'm DELIGHTED to announce that we have FINALLY found a home! We take possession June 16 and will move later that week.
I created my card base on my Silhouette and added a pattern from Mel Stampz. I used the internal offset to create my faux stitching around the edges. The fun little cactus is from Create a Critter 2. I embossed his fun hat and added tiny green glass beads. As my Xyron is packed, I had to adhere the glass beads with Glossy Accents. It was a bit tricky - and rather messy - but I now have a prickly-looking cactus!!
The red banner was created with My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies and stamped with a sentiment from Banner Sentiments. I added three enamel dots to finish things off.
PS I'm sorry this post comes late in the day. I realized this afternoon (when it wasn't live) that I must have forgotten to actually schedule/publish the post.
I'm linking this up at Silhouette Challenges, where this month's challenge is to use the faux stitching feature on your Silhouette.
