Again I am sooooo proud, and I totally have to try out this dressmakers wheel for my faux stitching. I try to steer clear of anything sewy....cause I won't loose my MIL fixing things for us if I appear to have knowledge of such things.

So when are you going to start teaching classes? My DH to be would LOVE to learn to cut stamps. I'm sure he would. I have to admit, your use of "products" in this card is ingenious. I'm putting it into my favs so I can remind myself later to think outside the stamping box!
