Word Play Card

It took me a while to figure out how flip this card.  I had taken the picture with my cell phone. Then I emailed the photo to myself.  I open up email and the photo is laying on it's side.  UGH.  What do I do?  The flip option was not available on the program it opened up into.  I hate computer issues.  I get frustrated very quickly when things go wrong with the computer and I don't know what to do.  Our son usually helps me out with my computer issues.  He has my computer set up to remote connect and get on here and look around to see what is wrong.  I have no idea how things go wrong on here.  "I didn't do it!"  I think I told you this before but it is worth repeating.  He once told me I broke the Internet!!  And the funny part of that was that I believed him!  I had been web site hopping that day big time and got some kind of virus from one of the web sites.  So after he took care of the bug I was careful where I go on here. 

Ok, lets talk about this card.  First of all I want to say how cool the font is on these words.  It is from the "Word Play" set.  I don't have that one and I don't think it was on my wish list but it will be now!  Anyway, I was at Sue's on Monday and Autumn was there.  She had found this card on the net somewhere (like me forgot to make note of where she found it to give credit) and she wanted to make the card.  She asked me if I would help her.  Not that I was all that much help but I said I would.  She punched out all the parts for the key and lock and sponged them.  I put them together.  I also cut out the decorative paper that was cut out in the "Top Note" Sizzix die.  And Autumn did the rest. 

Isn't that lock and key the cutest?  When she was done with the punches and went to put them away, her arms were full.  I was surprised at all the punches that were used to make that lock and key.  But it's SO worth it! 

Here is the list of punches:
1. 119862 Designer Label Large Punch

2. 119868 1" Circle Medium Punch

3. 119881 Heart to Heart XL Punch

4. 117190 Jewelry Tag Medium punch

5. 119855 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval large punch

6. 119863 1 3/8" x 5/8" oval large punch

7. 119857 Word Window Large Punch

8. 119849 Modern Label XL Punch  WOW, huh???

I do like the card but don't think I'll be making any for my personal use.  Not sure I have all those punches either!!!  Oh, I probably do but don't want to take them all out.  Then you have to put them all away and that is the part I REALLY hate!!!  My workroom is pretty much cleaned up right now but that is only because I have stampers in the morning!  You should have seen it an hour ago!  Both worktables were full of papers and stamp sets, punches and scissors.  Such a mess.  But now it's clean and I am going to keep it that way!!!  LOL  I don't believe that, not for a moment.  I am not a neat stamper.  I wait until I have no room left on either table and then I clean things up!  Or when I have stampers coming over.  How can I discipline myself to clean up after each project???  The million dollar question!  And no, you won't get a million dollars if you tell me how! LOL  If I had a million dollars I'd hire someone to clean up after me!  LOL  Wouldn't that be nice?

I thank you SO much for visiting today, later in the week I will have a fun project for you! It's been a while!

Have a happy Stamping Day,
