One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

MIM # 149 LOTS of glitter!!

Over at Capture the Moment  Heather has a video showing how she used different glitters on a single die is the new Make it Monday video.
I used Wonderful words: Hello die and ran it through the xyron on both sides...using a craft knife I selectively cut through the top layer and peeled off the top layer to add the first glitter, unfortunately the colors of the glitter are not showing up very good in the picture, but they are aqua marine, white gold, and rose...these are martha Stewart glitters.
I used the Limited Layers:  Hearts dies using the solid heart image and the scalloped heart.  I backed the solid piece with
some acetate on the back side.
The sentiment is from With all my Heart.
The sun is peeking out from the fog, so I think Lin and I are going to go shopping for some crafting goodies and have lunch out!!
Have a terrific week friends,
Heart Hugs,


  1. love the sparkle and heart window too - hope you had a wonderful time with Lin.

  2. Great card Colleen! I love how you did the open heart with the glittered "Hello" going through it ... fun idea! :0)

  3. Love the hello with all the glitter and the open heart to look through.

  4. Love this sweet Hello card! Beautiful glittering too!

  5. This is beautiful! Love the hello layered across the open heart.

  6. what a fun card, with the heart window :-)

  7. Wow Colleen, this is so pretty. I love how you did the different colors of glitter and the heart window.

  8. Very pretty card. The cut out is very clever. I had the same problem with my glitter not showing up. I wonder if there is a photo trick for glitter.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
