For today's Limited Supply Challenge, which was to use high school (red, black and white) or wedding colors (eeek! I think it was officially called Auburgine? What IS that?) and a clip or photo turn of our choice. I am also using the sketch from today's challenge on the Whimsie Doodles blog.
I just hurt my hand trying to cut one of the S shaped Hodgepodge clips in half! I tried using my rubber snips first since they generally cut anything around here, then I tried some kitchen snips (I mean hello, they cut through chicken bones?!?), then I broke bad and got out the heavy duty wire cutters from my husband's tools in the garage!! None of them worked!!! Finally, I decided I would just fold it over and what do you know-- it snapped in two. I prefer to believe that all of that cutting I was trying to do loosened it up, just like when you try to open a jar for a long time and someone walks up and opens it on their first try :) I colored it black with my Copic marker and added the "mini" clip to my card.
