New Toy

Sarah and I went to town yesterday for Valentine's Day papers, stickers, glitter, etc., and saw this Martha Stewart lace scallop heart punch! I had a 40% off coupon at Michael's so this toy came home with us.
After church this morning, I started pressing and pushing the lever and LOVE the little hearts! It does take some strength to go through cardstock, but regular paper is easier to punch out. Now we need to have friends over for a card making session. Maybe next weekend...

I have enough paper to make LOTS of cards, so maybe I should get started SOONER!

...and that punch is really cute. We were just trying to find something similar to make hearts for our announcement board at church. I think a little trip to Michaels is in store.

girl, if you can get MS punches you can get blingy hearts and eggs at the dollar store. I found 10 pc egg picks from my Dollar Tree today. I love MS punches. I got 3 on clearance after Christmas at Michaels'...snowmen and pine tree border punch, hot cocoa mug punch and JOY border punch.
