Dear Lizzy...I need a new punch. my post title TOTALLY cracks me up! Yup...I do crack myself up...usually on a daily basis. Sometimes even more than once a day! Git-r-done!

When I was stamping the sentiment for this card...I decided I "NEED" a smaller set of brackets. Not that the ones I used are bad...but I think THESE would be better. AND...while I was snoopin' 'round...I found like a dozen other punches I "need." Hey..I can't help it that cool new stuff keeps comin' out all the time.

Enough of that...I wanna show you my card.

I just love the Dear Lizzy Spring Line from American Crafts. The adhesive backed fabric paper is soooo cool! To make the flower, stem and leaves...I hand cut pieces from the fabric paper and just stick it down. Simple. I stamped the new Marigold Solid image from A Muse on kraft cardstock. It's one of my favorite stamps from the new release. Aww heck...who am I tryin' to kid...I like ALL the new stamps in the collection.

White gel pen for the faux stitching. Grass was super easy to make with MS Fringe Scissors. Do YOU have those? If NEED them! LOL! For the sentiment (hi friend from A Muse) I cut it out by hand...'cause I wanted it that way. I cut the sun out by hand too. I felt like a kid makin' this card. "Look what I made mom!" hee hee hee
