ok, i'm a bit embarrassed, here: my lovely blogging friend ♥leslie♥ has been on the DT of the fabulous shopping our stash challenge blog for agggggggggges now, and even though i marvel at her creations--and the very clever & creative prompts they give us--each week, this is the first time i am participating! but better late than never, right?! this time (#5) the brief is to use a neglected or unopened tool, for which i cop sheepishly to the latter. i excitedly bought one of these cool BHS multi-shaper magnetic punches several months ago, and then promptly froze whilst reading the instructions. as it turns out, of course, it's VERY easy to use, once you take the thing out of its packaging and just try it!!! thank you leslie & friends for making me do that at last!!! :)
in combination, i've also worked in...or i think i did... city crafter's current challenge you're number one; re-reading the instructions i realize we were supposed to use the numeral one or the word "first" on our projects. i've used the word "one". so i may not quite qualify, which is ok! in any case, i thank miss cheryl and the ladies for getting me started!!!
finally, i used this gorgeous sketch from simon says stamp challenge blog:
...but... i didn't actually stamp on my card. reading the rules, i don't think one HAS TO; if i'm wrong about that, again, i will happily disqualify myself and thank them for the sketch!
ok, so after all that, here's my card, hooray!
