Thanks, Chickie

I made this card intended to give to the acquaintance I mentioned earlier. I saw someone who made this card with a little notecard attached, so you can write in it. I thought that was a great idea, so I wanted to duplicate it. When I was done, I realized the little notecard does not close all the way very well. I decided to pull out the Slit Punch that I had only used once before, to help secure the card while closed. Well, lo and behold, the punch wouldn't work! Argh. For some unknown reason, it wouldn't punch through the cardstock. I thought maybe it was too thick (removed layers). Then, I thought maybe it needed sharpening (used foil).
Then I thought maybe it needed some lubrication (used wax paper). Nothing worked. Had to give up and settle for this the way it is.

Later, I decided to contact my friend/demo to see if she could call SU for me. Well, wouldn't you know it, SU said they would replace it for me, eventhough I was a few days out of their 90-day guarantee. I don't even have to send my bad one to them. Yeah, SU!

Anyways, regarding the card. I cut the chickie from Create-a-Critter cartridge (again). I just LOVE this cartridge. Did I say that before? LOL. I put a rhinestone brad in her flower. Isn't it cute? The oval scallop was cut from Storybook, along with the oval. The little flower inside the notecard was punched using one of my old punches. I decided it needed a little Stickle (glitter) on it. The paper is from DCWV's glitter stack.

Hi Annie,
Greetings from over the pond. I just discovered your blog via Splitcoast Stampers, and I think your cards are great. You are so productive too. Like you I am new to blogging and trying to get the hang of it. I'm so impressed by your Categories and Archive lists - I must find out how to do that!
Best wishes

Carol, categories is easy. Just put in whatever category/-ies you want your post to have when you're in the Edit or New Post mode. Towards bottom of the post box, it has a spot for LABELS. Just type away with your intended categories! Let me know if this is not clear.
