fun..

Adhesive...it's a staple for crafters, isn't it?  I was crafting at Darin's and forgot that I took the ATG to my house...grrrrrr....I had glue dots....foam strip adhesive....scotch tape...but no appropriate flat adhesive...Yes, I could have gone to the store but nooooooooo....I took it as a challenge..[slapping forehead]...me taking it as a challenge translates to Amy was too lazy to go to the store.  So I literally worked up a sweat for this puppy but I'm lovin' it:)

I was a lucky duck and won a 100 Days of Summer Simple Stories kit from the fab Cath over at the Moxie Fab World...Oh man, I'm in love...all the paper is from that kit...[fyi...I cut tiny tabs of scotch tape to hold things down when I sewed the card..oy vey...whatta pain]..I love the paper teamed up with one of the latest The Craft's Meow's August Releases:




**braks**

Check out thee perfect card Sherry made for me...it screams my name....


Check out Julie's card that she sent to me...big deal as she really just started making cards this year...fantabulous, eh?  Get this...the whole family signed it....isn't that CUTE?!

  4. I love your bike card. I think adhesive issue may be contagious...I finished up a card yesterday that I had started Thursday only to find my ATG had just run out, nope no refill, grabbed my snail runner, nope it was out, nope no refill, and finished my card with my beloved Glue Dots. The ONLY reason I got my lazy self out of the house to buy more adhesive with my 50% coupon was because my girlfriend asked me to buy her 2 Cricut cartridges (yesterday was the last day of the sale.)
