Great day!

Card class #2 went very well today. THANKS ladies!! I think we all had fun and the cards seemed to be a hit. I'm hoping to offer an all occasions card class in February '09, so stay tuned.

I learned a little trick a few days ago I thought I would pass on to you. Over the years I've heard of a few ways to sharpen punches. Wax paper, tin foil or sand paper seemed to be the norm. But would you believe the best thing to use is a soda can?? Just cut the top and bottom off, then cut down the side to make it flat. Next, just put it into your punch, and punch away a few times. Then use a little wax paper to lubricate it. Wa-la, good as new. I tried it tonight, worked wonders.

Alright, I'm off to finish that silly advent tree...

No kidding?! Now, if I don't cut my fingers off trying this, I may just sharpen some punches very soon! LOL

Great tip, Anne!
Do you think that would work on scissors, too?
By the way, I tagged you on my blog. :)
