I got a score it this week and got to use it today. I am a little sad seeing one side is starting to come unglued. I am going to email the lady I purchased it from in the morning and ask what to do. I am clueless about the steps to take when something like that happens. I opened it yesterday and thought it felt 'bumpy' and today in the light you could see the bubbles under the black grip mat :(. I did get to try it out a little with these cards. I think it will be a very handy little tool! This first card is for the 2s4y bonus sketch. I scored the paper for the flower in an acordian fold, made 2 fans and glued them together. I taped them to hold them in place while they dried... but like a dummy put the tape on my lower lip, ripped it off with half of my lip attached, lol... and freaked! DUH! that did not go on the card mind you ;).
I had been thinking for a while how I wanted to make this card. I was going to make a black oval with a grid and add a butterfly to it. I found this already cut oval in my stash today and thought I would do the same with it. As I started my first row of lines the grid for the butterfly started changing in my head. It started looking like a fish .... then I remembered these punched ( a year old? ) hearts I had in my stash. I got them out, played around and it just grew from there. I am so happy with her. She makes me smile and made my whole day of cleaning worthwhile, lol! All of my papers (minus the fishy) are from my cafe mom secret sis package my beautiful friend Carol sent me. They were all double sided and it was SO hard to choose which to use.
My coffee is brewed and my spine feels like it is going to give up on me any second now, so I am going to relax on the couch a bit before I go to bed. Thanks for visiting with me today. I hope to be back tomorrow with another post. IF not please come back Saturday to see my first card submission to the Hanna Stamps guest DT call. I would love to see what you think, AND my card was made with a new Sophie G. so you will not want to miss seeing her :).
Good night, sleep tight! :)
