Boy Oh Boy! by Lily of the Valley
Here is the card I made yesterday...and then ripped apart and remade it! Trust me...if I think it was in need of a makeover...it needed it! I hate when I make a mistake and a card is all done! Just sayin I screwed up a wee bit with the scissors on this one! Got a little snip crazy LOL!
I use an ATG gun...have you ever tried unsticking your papers without ripping the dickens out of them? I read this nifty tip the other day and it has opened up my world. I am one of those stampers that has to glue it all down and then decide if I like it. Wish I wasn't like that...but now I have solved the problem of placing the paper crooked or in the wrong place.
Tip of the Day!: How to remove something that is stuck down with ATG tape????
Take your embossing gun and gently heat the back of the paper and then everything will just peel away! ( I knew I kept that embossing gun around for something!)
I took this card completely apart last night, added some stitching and a few "bits and bobs" and was happy that I did. This one is going to my little Cole! He is enjoying his summer break for sure! Oh the joy's of a 3 year old! (okay Gwamma...almost 4!)
I used Jen's monthly sketch SFYTT July 2011.
I am also entering this in Papertake Weekly Challenge after seeing Lorraine's pretty card HERE. The challenge is anything goes with extra credit for buttons. Love the sweet LOTV image she used!
I had planned to add this to the last LOTV challenge, but I just missed out! I am such a pokey stamper LOL!
Hope you enjoy!
