Hi y'all!  I did something today that I didn't ever think I would.  I made a card without my Cricut.  Heavenly days folks, I went old school scrapping!  It was more fun that I thought it would be.  The down side of this is that I am now amassing such an amazing amount of paper crafting tools and paper that there won't be any room for US soon!

I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die for the flower on paper I printed from a document in Word.  The edges of the flower are inked with red dye ink and a rhinestone is glued to the brad.  I used punches for the corners and a cuttlebug and embossing folder for the mat.  After embossing the plain black card stock, I sanded some of the raised bits and colored some of them with a silver metallic sharpie.  The words are cut from plain red card stock using a cuttlebug die and then glammed up with a glitter gel pen from Amy Chomas.

My auntie and cousin came to visit last week and gave my daughter a Smithsonian Rock and Gem Dig kit.  That kid had so much fun hammering and chiseling at the rock to get the gems out!  I'm glad my hubby insisted she do it outside since she made a HUGE mess.  The thank you card is for this gift.

I need to unpack my Gazelle and learn the Funtime software that comes with it.  I know I can cut to the Gazelle from Make The Cut, but I still wanna learn all of cool things I can do in Funtime.  I don't know when I'm going to get to it though, as we have a lot going on around here right now.  Hopefully I can get to it soon and let y'all know how I make out. 

Happy crafting y'all!
