WOYWW # 336 Veteran's Day

So, I had taken some desk shots on Tuesday evening, and then I realized that some people who peek at this blog... they are getting what was made and shown in those mug shots on friday... So, today after work I had to do new shots. If you'd like to play along with us this blog hop starts here at our hostess Julia's blog.


 Front and center in this shot as I came up the stairs is a container of  "Diamond Files" ( a gift from hubs) who had remembered that he cut apart one of my die sets last month? and he told me these things will file down "anything" ( like those sharp little numbs on the edges of dies that get cut apart) also the remains of some of Tuesday's things ( which will show on friday ) and the Share Kindness pile that I am working on. Oh and the elephant die just arrived in the mail the other day, so it was hauled upstairs too.

 Off to the right are fairly new stamps sets along with the snow that was painted and glittered last weekend.

 A closer look at the wooden snow ( micheals) and todays holiday blitz tutorial all printed out at work and hauled home to try a Kittie Wreath..

 I have this punch. this is as far as I got with that. ( tutorial says I need 50 ish of these for one 2" circle) I got to about 40 when everything it cut looked like that. only cut on the edges with torn and ripped cardstock being eaten in the punch. It doesnt seem to cut in an even kind of a way it cuts the edges and then sometimes it looks perfect in the piece that was being cut from and comes out in a little pile of branches...
( I think its defective. I bought it on ebay years ago when this was a very hard to find punch)
( I ordered a new one tonight that amazon says will be here friday)
I really want this to work. ( mostly its Kitties influence that makes me want that) :)
I can credit her with quite a few of my small die purchases over the last few years too.

 So, I pushed the branches off to the side and decided to cut some dies, these are mostly Lawn Fawn stitched snow diecuts and one of the glittered wood snowflakes on those sizzix tag cards.

 I diecut and used up a lot of scraps today... and made a few things.. the base on this one is a Stardream shimmer cardstock.

And got the first kindness packages gathered and bundled. that is just tissue paper with the heat embossed sentiments the hearts are tiny buttons with some scrappers floss in them. This may take me a while to get them mailed as I have a bigger list of people I would like to send a little something to than time in the day to work on these... :) but, that's ok it will still be a surprise when it does get mailed.
