Guess what?! I am super excited! I had a garage sale this weekend.........well, my neighbor did, actually, but invited me to bring stuff, so I took a handfulof "big ticket" things. Anyhow, I made some fun money, and I went on a shopping spree! Yay! I picked up some new punches, PLUS......are you ready for this?! I finally bought a Cinch!!! Woohoo! It's not here, yet, but I am anxious to receive it! If you have one, do you have any tips for me??? :0)
I made this card last night, and this morning, with two of my new punches: EK Success Button Chain, and a McGill Scalloped Tag punch. I used a Bugaboo image that was a freebie some time ago, but you can pick it up, and other cuties like it, at the Bugaboo Stamps online store!

This week's Catch the Bug Challenge is to use punches or die cuts, so I am entering my card into their challenge. :0) ( No surprise there, right?! lol! ) I made my papers by scanning in some great Debbie Mumm fabrics that I have. I used some of those old shape scissors to cut the edges of the background and green button layers. I added some faux stitching and adhered buttons to my ribbon using my dbl-sided sticky tape. The button punch is embossed by tracing circles onto the die cut with a stylus. The bear is cut out with my Nesties. I colored him in with Copics. I am still a newbie, and practicing! Lot of tossed aside images before this one! hahaha!
