Birthday Girl Times Two - Part 2


     OK, Darnell I have to have two separate blog entries to enter twice - so here is Optional Option #2 part 2!



     I tried to take a picture of the the inside of the Circle Spiral Card, but it is very hard to get one that does it justice.

Birthday Girl Times Two

     When I was in Indianapolis this summer, I had the opportunity to shop in two paper crafting stores. They were right across the street from each other in Nashville, Indiana - Papertrix and Wishful Thinking. I bought SEVERAL stamps and haven't had a chance to use any of them. 

     I saw Darnell's NBUS (never-before-used schtuff) challenge and started rooting through my schtuff for something that back in June I didn't think I could live without and haven't looked at since I brought it into the house. I decided to go for "optional option #2" - "make two cards using the same stamp" - a stamp that I had to have, but haven't used.

     Here is Penny Black's Birthday Girl by Mo Manning - twice!
