Its been fun taking leave from work aka vacation this week for Spring Break. The rain put a little damper on things, but then when the UPS guy delivered my box of Stampin’ Up! goodies… lets just say it felt like Christmas. =) When I opened the box (or should I say “tore open” the box), I was pleasantly surprised to find the cutest little ‘Thank You’ note inside. This act of kindness has persuaded me to buy the Tea Shoppe stamp set used to make the sweet card. Funny thing was that the card I made the day before matches the little tea cup. Thank you Mr. Green for brightening my day. On to my box of goodies… I bought punches galore, the Tabletop Paper Cutter, and a pair of Paper Snips. In the matter of time it took to open up my supplies, I made this 3 x 4 Gracias [Thank You] card and my own Pink Cherry Blossom to boot.
MaggieMade Tip: Don’t be afraid to think out side the box. Get scratch paper and start cutting, punching, and snipping like a mad Ninja Scientist. That’s exactly how I came up with cutting corners into my Fancy Flower. Surf the net and don’t be afraid to alter someone else’s work. After all, did Edison truly invent the light bulb? No, he did not! It was Humphry Davy in 1809. Edison simply improved the invention!
Show Me How: I have created this Pink Cherry Blossom PDF for your use. Please feel re-cut it, re-work it, modify it, etc. You can save it, print it, or pass it along. All I ask is that you site the source when sharing it. So, go ahead and be called Edison… =)
