An Expression of Love

If you’re using the expressions thinlits you may experience a challenge getting the words out of the die without damage.  I heard of a great tip that works fantastic.  Use a piece of wax paper between your cardstock and the die.  Run the sandwich though your BigShot three (3) times.  You’ll get a nice clean cut and the word pops out of the die much easier.

A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?

Can you guess what this post is about?? My segue is about as subtle as a Mack truck. lol

Today, I spent the afternoon in my craft room.  I would have been in there earlier, but I got caught up in “oldish” movies, (Intolerable Cruelty, Walk to Remember, Wedding Date,) on TV.  After all those, then battled my way through the mess that has taken the craft room.. Shannon “organizing” what she’ll be taking to college with her..  but I digress.. onto the card I made 🙂

And without further ado: My owl peek-a-boo card.
