OK, that pretty well sums up my week-end. Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it's off to work I go!


EDIT: Wanted to show 4 cards I showed at my first SU! Party as a demostrator. We made the first 2 cards in the front. CASEing cards from splitcoast and other SU! demostrators we made a pull out tag to get the candy out. I discovered that the punched out heart could be put on the tag to show through when it is empty. The snow globe is so easy to do! Wish we had made that card instead. Then I made a card with the bird punch in the new occasions catalog. Love that punch, expect to see more use from it!
