Itty Bitty Borders - and Sky Diving??

Here are the four cards I made with the retired Stampin' Up! set called "Itty Bitty Borders." I also used sentiment stamps from a couple other sets in my current stack of ten sets. They are all the same layout. I stamped each border stamp three times across the strip.

For this first card, I used the holly and berry stamp, colored with Copics and matted with red. The sentiment is from the set called "Small Script."
A thank you card using the lady bug border stamp. Again, I colored with a Copic marker. I punched the "THANKS" with a Martha Stewart border punch.
 A thank you card using the leaves stamp and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from the SU! set called "Much Appreciated."
The flower stamp, colored with Copics and matted with green. The sentiment is from the "Small Script" set.

UPDATED TO ADD: Our skydiving was canceled for today due to the weather. I guess there was storm coming in and there were too many wind gusts. We'll have to reschedule. Trying to work this out with the five of us could be a little challenging, but I'll keep you posted. 

This morning I will be doing something I have wanted to do for a while - sky diving! My sister (who did this last August in Georgia with our sister-in-law) forwarded me information about a Groupon for sky diving. Unbeknownst to me, she had also forwarded it to our dad. When he said he was in (at age 89!), I really had no choice but to say that I was in, too! Today is the day. I'll let you know how it goes. My sister's son and a friend of hers will be jumping, too. And we WILL be doing tandem dives - not jumping on our own.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

You are a brave woman Lynette - love your cards - think I might have to try to use my unused stamp sets - quite a challenge! Love your cards!

Lynette, my friend from church was going skydiving with her sister and her dad today too. You aren't related to Kaprice, are you? Deb

Oooh, I love these borders! Don't think I've seen this set. You sure made some cute and simple cards with them. Love that MS punch, too. I'm sorry to hear your sky dive was canceled, but better to be safe than chance it.
