A peek into my day...

I made 22 of these cards today for a swap that I am participating in.  I thought you might like to see how I work so I took some pictures along the way.  The first thing I did was to cut my So Saffron card stock for the base of the card.  Then I ran Pretty in Pink Card stock through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle #2 die, one of my favorites.  I find myself grabbing for it all the time.  Next I used the Circle #2 die to cut my Sweet Stitches paper for the center of the scallop.  Then I stamped my ruler's, buttons, and the button card.  Here is a picture of all my little piles.

It is all in the details.  That is what makes a great card.  I love the little pom pom trim.  Too cute!
Mat pack and piercer all set out for piercing the scalloped circles, and for piercing the scalloped border that I will be punching.  Button cards and rulers all ready to be cut out.I dug through the scrap drawer next to my stamping desk, and stamped all my button's on the scrap paper.  Nothing goes to waste around here as you can see.  Seriously, you would think that I was born in the depression era, but I was a 60's baby.  I worked on cutting these babies up while talking to Jenna and Sarah on the phone this afternoon.  After I got all my elements ready, then I worked on assembling the cards.  I started around 11 this morning and worked pretty steady on them, except to cook lunch and supper, bathroom, and short computer breaks.  I finished them around 9:30 tonight.  YEAH!  They are done and ready to be mailed out!!!!  Woo HOO!
