MIM#96- Nothing is Impossible

 Hello! I hope you have been having a good week. Mine took an unexpected turn when early Tuesday morning  I had a stomach bug that did not play nice with me at all!  Thankfully I am feeling much better and the kids seemed to have bounced back quickly too :)  I suppose it was a good time to hit...better now than in a few days which would be much to close to Christmas!  This week's MIM was a fun one, patchwork dies. I decided to make up a last minute gift with this technique and chose to use one of the butterfly dies from Beautiful Butterflies. Normally I really, really dislike mass producing but it seems I've been doing more of it lately and well, it's sort of growing on me. They sure do look all pretty together don't they? I kept these simple so they could be easily mailable so I used some dry embossing and some pearl pen for a pretty, but still flat accent. I also used PTI's Half and Half dies (love those!) and the Sew Simple Borders. I hope you are enjoying these last few days before Christmas...our week is going to get very busy:)  Thanks for stopping by!
