Howdy, all! Another busy here in "CrazyTown
". I spent this afternoon out in the HEAT cutting back a huge barberry bush in front of our front porch. Took me 1 1/2 hours to get that baby outta there. Took it down from 8 feet high to 3 feet high. During that time, my chain saw lost it's chain 2 times....made me SO mad! But it's one of those things I know how to fix. Just as I got to the last 3 large limbs, it decided to RAIN! HARD! So, I threw all the power tools and electric cords up on the porch and finished it off with my hacksaw. Soaking wet, I got back in the house, dried myself off and headed for the craft room. At least one bush is done, have 2 more to do over the next few days when it isn't raining
The nugget tin is done with SU Ballet Blue ink stamped on the nugget labels. I used the SU set "Snow Flurries. The gold is Wausau Gold Metallic cardstock and the white is California Paper Goods Constellation series. The snowflake paper is by Paper Pizzazz. I punched the small flakes with the Martha S "Celtic" snoflake pumnch and the large one with the SU Large Snowflake punch. The gold scalloped piece was punched with the Marvy Pink scalloped circle pumnch. Finished it off with Crystal Stickled in the centers of the small snowflakes. Needed a break from cards, so the tin looked like a good idea. Til tomorrow.....
