Wild Time

After my last post and then silence, perhaps you think the wild things got me. No, though I've had somewhat of a "wild time" this past week. I played "house mom" to my great little grandkids, 5 and 11. The best part of staying at their house for 10 days was having lots of playtime with them. We had a couple of great card making sessions and my grandson came up with some good Halloween cards. The little granddaughter, became a black cat manufacturer. I have to give Martha Stewart a great big endorsement here. I own tons and tons of craft punches, but when I reluctantly paid a higher price for one of Martha Stewart's cat punches I was extremely pleased with having done so.

My little 5-year-old granddaughter was able to manipulate this punch with great skill -- it is one of the easiest to use punches I have ever seen. I kid you not, that she sat for an hour straight punching away. In some of the workshops I have conducted, I have had some adults who were unable to use some of the craft punches. Martha S has it figured out! I couldn't wait to go back to Michaels for another one -- this time, a bunny.

Looks like you've been very busy! Seems you all had great fun together too.
I left you an Award on my blog.

I can hear you on some of the punches being so unuser friendly. I swear some of my older ones left me with blisters.

I bought my first Martha steward punch last week and like you I will be adding more. They are great.

Wild indeed! Wish I could join in on all the fun. Let's think of a market for all the manufactured cats ....

What a great time you've had, love the card too.
I don't have a Martha Stewart punch, I have some of her alphabet stamps. I'm not sure if we can get her stuff here in UK. I got the stamps from Michaels in Florida.
