I’ve been MIA for the last week. Lots of drama going on in our household and we’ve finally gotten a handle on it. I feel like a weight has been lifted!
I want to thank everyone for their positive responses to my post last week. I have received a few new ideas that I think you all will enjoy. Quite frankly, I was starting to look at the TLC as more of a job than an adventure, but I have a refreshed view now! It’s kinda like the old saying “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes, and it will change”.

I received a heads up from Wendy W (Wendybell) a bit back that directed me to this cool card she had seen on JanTink’s Stamp Paper Scissors blog (<--- click for tutorial). This is a fun one! Jan has a video tutorial on her blog to help you figure things out. I will add that she used Stampin’ Up punches for her project, but I used Nestabilities. It’s a little more work to use the nesties as you have to do a bit of measuring to make sure everything lines up, but don’t be afraid! I found it helpful to have several sticky notes handy to hold things in place while I uhhhhhhhh……can I say “tinkered”? Pun intended!
Whenever drama was going on in our house it always involved the kids so I do hope everything is OK. Just to let you know you are truly appreciated by us ( techies ). I checked out the link and I'm going to give it my best but I don't have any punches like those shown so if I don't upload something it won't be for lack of trying. Elizabeth

I remember seeing MariLynn making a few of these a while back and meaning to try them. Looks like today's the day to get round to actually doing and not just intending. I'll have to get through work and housework first, but I'll be along later.
Oh cool ... I actually have made a few of those in the past week which I was going to use on my blog next week.... I will have to rearrange what I am posting so I can use one this week yahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
For some reason, the video does not come up for me. Jan's blog does, but there's a big blank where the video should be. I tried Explorer and Firefox, so I guess I'll have to pass, but it looks so interesting - thanks, Holly - hope all is well now. Hugs.
What if you woke up today
and only had what you
thanked God for yesterday?
Well, I just watched the tutorial and boy, Jan was detailed and made me laugh, too! I hope to get to try it.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
This is definitely going to be a challenge for me as I have a hard time stamping straight with a Stamp-a-ma-jig. What I see & what actually is don't always line up. LOL Well off to my craft room to give it a try. Hugs, Trish
Thanks Holly, Jan and Wendy for sharing this great technique. I LOVE it! It took a long time to make. This will be a special card to give to a family member or close friend (or sell for $50! ha, just kidding!)
