Thanks, thanks, thanks for all the cutting tips. I have to tell you my mouth dropped open when I watched the video from Lori Craig that Shaz posted. Thank you, Shaz it is awesome. I did know about the waxed paper and in the heat of the moment I completely forgot about it. I need to keep a roll in my craft room to remind me. The little brush in that video is the best little thing to clean out the die. I finished another card with the same die and I am happy with it. We had to change our lunch to tomorrow so the pressure was off to finish it and maybe that helped. It went together with no problem. Also got the lens in my glasses put back in and I can see better. Here is the link for the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STAINEM6rlI&feature=em-subs_digest-vrecs&app=desktop. I am going to enter this card in Darnell's NBUS and also http://casology.blogspot.com/ because it is about NBUS this week. I hope this is okay for NBUS. I did use the die yesterday and finished this card last night. Be kind to one another. I found that Ellie's http://livelaughstamp.blogspot.com/2014/12/monday-morning-challenge-no-2.html is also about New. So I'm adding my card to her challenge too.
