Time Flies By

I hope your St. Paddy’s Day was wonderful.  I’m back to share a card with you.  As I do cards, I’m trying to reach into my stash and use things that I’ve not used before.  I don’t know about you, but for the longest time when I purchased a product I would just leave it in the packaging until I was ready to use it.  Well the truth is, keeping it in that packaging was really a barrier to me using it – I mean, what if I needed to return it to the store?  Things look so pristine in the package that I tended to save them for a "special occasion".   Not anymore!  I’m now really good at getting things out of the package and into my everyday storage so that I can put my hands on it quickly.  Somewhere in my meanderings I picked up these jumbo eyelets and on this card used them for the first time.  They were a little bit klutzy for me and I couldn’t seem to get them set with my Cropadile without mangling them – I ended up having to use the dreaded manual eyelet setter and hammer. 

Another simple card.  In real life the colors mesh a little bit better than they appear.  The scalloped circle is more of a lime green as is the patterned background.  My camera simply wasn’t feeling it.

Supplies:  Stamps:  Stampendous; Paper:  DCWV, Bazzill; Ink: SU Night of Navy, Brilliance Black; Ribbon: Michaels; Accessories: Eyelets – Karen Foster; Nestabilities; aquapainter and watercolors.

    Finally someone that has used jumbo brads !!! I loved reading “as time goes by” … because I’m notorious for never taking anything out of it’s original box. And you’re right – it’s a barrier and you never use the product. I’m delivered !!!!!

    love ya, debReplyCancel

    pretty card, guess u need to buy that big bite it might have done the job. I used mine the other day for reg. eyelets and it works good when u use it right.!! we will have to email deb and tell her that is jumbo eyelets. I dont have a problem taking things out of the box , I have a problem of using them if they are special, i keep thinking oh gotta save it for that special project but i am loosing that philosophy real quick. thanks for sharing. i have that ribbon from michaels too.
