My Last Martha card for awhile! I promise!


I feel the way many of you do....I love to hate Martha! I have to admit that her papers are yummy and I love this bird stamp! I had to buy some of the patterned paper too! I decided to cut the stamped bird into a tag shape.

I used my Prisma Colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend the colors! I chalked the edges to give it that distressed look! I used my border punch on the bottom of the tag. I then used Martha's patterned paper at the bottom and her pretty twine for the button. I'm not sure where I got the striped ribbon, it was just in my stash! Anyway, Hope you like it!

I need to get a move on with my Tuscan Rose goodies....but it IS the end of the school year and as many of you know I am a fifth grade teacher......so LOTS to do! My hubby and my son are going to a White Sox game on Saturday night...so I am hoping to get a lot of stamping done then!
