I Did It Again!!

I would be LYING if I said that all of the crafty goodies I had were made by Stampin' Up (but ... to be FAIR ... the largest portion of them are!!). I feel the "guilt" going on from time to time (as I seem to have this week) about all the lovely things I have that go neglected and unused ...

Which brings me to this card ... I hafta admit that I went shopping with my BFF, Cheryl, TWICE yesterday ... once we went to one store (during her lunch break), and then we went to another (after she got off work). I bought this non-SU punch ... we had seen a card on Pinterest that used it and KNEW we had to grab our coupons and GO! So we did ...

Which brings me to the OTHER punch I used on here that has been neglected for some time ... the maple leaf. When I first started papercrafting I was HEAVY into decorative scissors (c'mon, admit it ... you got a box FULL of those babies in the back of your closet!) AND paper punches. I have a whole Craftsman toolbox FULL of those babies ... and they haven't seen the light of day for quite some time. So I caved and brought them out. Boy, do I have GOOD taste!! There are some BEAUTIES in there!!

So, that is my confession ... as JanTink would call it, I have committed rubbahdultery ... but not really ... since I didn't use non-SU stamps at ALL ... just punches. So there!! Smiley from millan.net

I've been admiring your handiwork since you made it on the Artisan Design Team - you are an amazing and inspiring artist!!! Thank you! I especially LOVED your Halloween post/pic regarding Disney. My husband is a professional singer in the new group at Disneyland - Voices Of Liberty. This card is GORGEOUS!!!

Love the card! I don't blame you for adding the punch to your collection. ...LOL! My kids found my edging scissors in my closet a few days ago and are having a blast with them!!!

So... I took all of my scissors and punches to my classroom so my kids can use them. Around all of the holidays they make cards, bookmark, etc.. with all of my old stuff.
