Bermuda Sugar Nellie.


Goodness, how pretty is this card? I know totally tooting my own horn, but this card is so pretty! My sweet friend, Tammi, sent me this pack of paper by K and Co. and the colors are so soft. Really cool thing about it is it's textured a little too, and it shows up when you softly edge the end with ink. I saw a fun layout on Sugar Bowl, and had to play along. They are giving some sneak peaks of some releases, and all of them are so cute! They also said to pull out some punches, so I used two. One I haven't used yet, and the other is a neglected punch.

I cleaned out my punch tote yesterday to try to reorganize it better. Any tips on how you all store your punches? I moved out some seasonal punches, to keep ones that are good for everyday cards to help out some. I really like the EK ones that fold flat to keep down on the clutter. Wonder if Martha will jump on board with that too.


Teacher appreciation is coming up and I'll need some cards on hand for the kids teachers. This one is pretty bulky with the flowers, so it will be perfect for one of them.


Gotta say, I really love the punch on the brown sheet. It's a Martha Stewart punch, and it so classy looking. Other supplies: Bermuda bay cardstock, basic brown ink, nesties, stickles, primas, copics,

Pretty card! I have those K&Co papers - they're some of my FAVES & you're right about how they love to take inks for distressing...makes them even yummier!

I store my punches on pegs & in baskets hung on pegboard above one of my work tables...keeps 'em neat & close at hand.
