Life gives you lemons....

 Good morning!! Welcome to the Perfect Paper Crafting Blog hop today. We are teaming up with XYRON this week for an awesome hop that you don't want to miss!

Today I pulled out the Perfect Tear 3-tools set to get my little squiggly border.
You simple lay the tool down, add pressure to it and pull the paper up to tear it. If you are using a THICK cardstock like I did, then you use the little water pen it comes with.
Do you see the dark shade that is next to the Perfect Tear Tool? That is a line of water from the pen.

Once the fibers are moistened, simply pull the paper up and tear.
Of course I used my Perfect Layers Mini tools for all the layers, including the layers on the fishtails. They are so simple to use to create that perfect border around!

I was super stoked to be able to finally play with some of my Reverse Confetti stamps! Thus far I had been collecting and not producing!  It's been SO LONG since I just stamped! No coloring, which is just crazy hard for me.  This simple card seemed to stress me out way more than a image that is detailed and has a lot of coloring!!  Loved working with the Fresh and Fruity set!  Lately I have a thing for Limes and lemons.....I've been using them in everything. So this was perfect for me!  I used an old MME paper pad that I have had for sometime for the DP.  The pierced rectangle is from MFT. I adhered it all together with the Mega Runner from Xyron. I have to say, I really liked this!!  I have been using the ATG for years, this one is so much smaller and sooooooo much easier to use. I think I have found my new adhesive runner for sure!!  
Don't forget to use code Tracy5% when you check out at the Perfect Paper Crafting store for you discount!!
Be sure to Hop along and leave a comment to win a $50.00 gift certificate to Perfect Paper Crafting.  Also be sure to come back each day as Xyron is giving away goodies ALL WEEK!! That's right!!!!   Winner of the GC will be announced Augst 25th.
