Garden markers made from Shrinky Dink and upcycled wire.

I cut the Shrinky Dink paper into approximately 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches; used Staz-on black ink with a Stampers Best flower stamp and bee clear stamp.  I rounded the corners with punch and used a standard size hole punch.    Using a Red Sharpie, I wrote the veggie names on and then used my heat gun to shrink them down.  Then I used some upcycled wire from an old hanging flower basket, cut it and twisted it with a jewelry pliers (a needle nose pliers would work too).  Now I have garden markers I can use from year to year.

Mother's Day Card 2013 inspired by CardMaker magazine

on page 75 of the magazine is a Mother's Day card with a mono color theme.  Here is my version of th card:

I used Cuttlebug paisley folder, tumbled glass Distress Ink, Prima flowers, Martha Steward corner punch and CardzTV Happy stamp.    I make the blue/black ribbon by gluing regular blue ribbon to black bias tape.
