Messy Borders

I can hardly wait to leave for Omaha in the morning. I am only 14 hours away from a long needed haircut! I had to cancel my last two appointments so I have taken on the appearance of a woolly mammoth...

Not only do I get a hair cut - but I get pampered by my sissy! She drives me to my appointment and takes me to lunch! She makes me coffee and always has a sizable amount of 'transfer of crap'. A trip to Omaha must include the mandatory 'transfer of crap'. If you are a Fiber Bubble blog regular - you've read about the sissy 'transfer of crap'. We have a genetic predisposition of transfering articles back and forth..."one sister's junk is another sister's treasure!" As a reminder, or explanation if you are new to the Fiber Bubble, there are RULES to 'transfer of crap'. For some background on 'ToC' here.

The best bonus about a trip to Omaha is I get the see and hug daughter Amy.

Now...for today's card. I can't believe I DID it! I actually made a one-layer card! I usually never resist the 'need' to add layer upon layer, a little ribbon here, a brad or three there, some glitter, a strip of washi tape....

So...I was GOING to follow this tutorial for a "Bordered Sentiment" over at Splitcoast Stampers. But I had to 'adapt' with the small flower along the bottom right of the sentiment because of a hapless smudge! Using one layer  - a white one at that - time I will be more careful with cleaning up my mat and my inky fingers!
