MIM #26 Decreasing Apertures

A new Make it Monday is up!

Watch the video to understand the challenge.

"Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and features the decreasing apertures technique." 

What's an aperture?

Watch the video.

Plus, you'll feel so good about learning a new vocab word...

AND you'll impress those around you. ;)

They'll definitely grasp the significance of this hobby of yours...and the intelligence needed to create a card.

We're not just talking coloring, babe...we're talking APERTURES.  

That's right,


I was delighted when his eyebrows raised and eyes revealed that "I'm impressed" glint. 

Marlena was using big words today.

Not Momma words...

BIG words.

Ok, here is my....ahem, APERTURE card. ;)

Day of healing, my friends, day of healing.  

My SECOND card in a row for my friend to send her deployed husband.

Like I said,  I couldn't participate in anything to do with deployed soldiers without crying my eyes out.  

Sometimes things are so deep

they take some time to heal.

Here and Here are where I cut out a bit of my heart for y'all, because the Lord laid on my heart that you needed to hear it. 

I'm not saying it again.

Thanks for peeking in and enabling me in this great bloggy world. ;)
