Now I must confess, this card is not inspired from my new Paper Crafts magazine, but from Debbie at Thinking Inking! I good friend of mine, Diane which we had a fun "field-trip" to some craft stores this past Tuesday, e-mailed me Debbie's card to show me the Top Note edges at the bottom of her card. We looked into how this was done. You place your DP or cardstock on the long side of the Top Note and send it through part way and back it out... pretty cool!! I like the Western Flair... I just had to try this technique as I'm CRAZY about the Top Note die!! (can you tell from my cards I post!!) :)
Take a look at the card I CHASED!! I change it up a bit, but still used DP from Cosmo Cricket. Love those buttons, a great way to use them up!
I want to share a photo of our flowering Crab Apple Tree north of the house. It's just gorgeous!! The hummingbirds and bee's are VERY busy... and the smell is sweet! Enjoy my stamping friends, and thanks SO much for the visit!! Have some stampin' fun... :)
Smiles.... Michelle :)
