MIM #151


This week's Make it Monday at Papertrey features Betsy Veldman
and Drop Shadow Die cuts.
Her cleverness knows no bounds, so this card is in her honor.
One summer she hung flip flops from a line. Oh how I loved that card.
My teacups are hung from a line after they were shadowed.

Feb. is a month of birthdays in the Penir clan, and this goes to an aunt.
She and I would scour antique and flea markets for vintage tea cups.


I love that I can personalize cards with meaningful images!

PTI dies: Parisienne Lace Doily, teacup, Tag Sale 9
PTI Cardstocks: Pure Poppy, Stamper's White, Blush, Berry Sorbet and Soft Stone
PTI Stamps: Tea for Two Additions, little and medium heart from Cupid's Arrow.
Bitty Background Blocks 2, and Background Basics: Needlepoint (tag).

Loving layering the way I do, this will not be the last use of this technique!
