..................Hey there! This is my SECOND post today--Scroll down for the earlier one!...................
SO, after my rant about eBay the other day, I return, hat in hand, to show you the cards I made with the mitten punch that I bought, you guessed it, on eBay! (Wait, whaaaaaaat?)
This thing is soooo cute, and it was a good deal, so I didn't fall into that crazy eBay trap. I opened it up, tested it, then IMMEDIATELY ran and got a bunch of papers and sat down for a night of TV and crafting.
Oh, yeah, I also found these sweeeeet dimensional stickers from American Crafts at JoAnn's for $1.00 (!), so I bought eight sets, I think. More on those later...
I made these--
Once I finished with my need for mittens, I grabbed my stickers and came up with these puppies--
I find it really a really fun little challenge to see how many ideas I can come up with using the same collection of elements.
Obviously, some turn out slightly better than others, but that's when I fall back this age old adage--
"They're getting a handmade card. They'd probably love it if you scribbled with a crayon."
You DO know this old adage, right?
LIVE by it; make it your mantra!
Hoo, boy. I think my brains are suffering from working on a diet of coffee and Christmas cookies...
I'm getting a haircut today. SO excited! You really don't wish to look at me in this "before" state...
Hope you have something to look forward to this weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
