Oh, I bought the punch when I got the set, you bet I did!
But next time I'm waffling and need someone to tell me I ought to buy something, I'll come to you. I can always use a good enabler.
And here's the kicker - I just made ANOTHER card using this set (yes, the selfsame set I started this whining thread about). When Bexx noted that the images ought to tile, I was onto that like a shot. So my relationship to this set has done a complete 180. Go figure.
