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 ~ Debossing stamped images

Over at Capture the Moment Dawn has a video showing debossing a stamped image...so the first thing you do is stamp and then lay your die cut on top, but using the rubber mat so it does NOT cut out, just debosses the image...gives a very nice touch to the card.
stamps  PTI Garden Grace, Fancy Folk Art
ink:  simply chartreuse, raspberry fizz, versafine black

I am having fun at my BFF's Linda, we have until Friday to play together.
I was up in the Seattle area for my two granddaughter's Volleyball tournament.
Lily, the 10 year old won her division (my husband coaches her team) and
Ellie the 12 year old played for the finals in the 14 and under gold division and lost the match, but they played strong and she played really good.  We love watching them play and we tell them that all the time!
We have the final BIG tournament in Phoenix, AZ in June, so all the family will be down there for that, then we will stay a few extra days for a vacation.  There will be 12 of us in the house!

thanks for taking a look!  Hope you all have a great week!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
