Piercing Sentiments

Wow, that title is loaded.  Nothing better than a catchy title to get your attention.  I chose it because I felt it covered the two challenges that I'm working with today.  The first challenge I'm playing along with today is with Splitcoast Stampers and it's about PiercingWhy not poke some holes in your craft?  It's actually kinda fun and almost as therapeutic as popping that bubble wrap stuff.  If you've never tried it, I highly recommend it.  Here's what you do.  The next time you come across some bubble wrap, just grab one of those bubbles and squeeze it ....until it pops.  Don't say I didn't warn you though, it's addicting.  There's just something about the pop, the sound and the feeling...ahhhhhh!  The other challenge I'm playing along with today is with 365 Cards and it's all about the sentiment.  The challenge is to use a Sentiment that inspires or makes your day brighter.  The sentiment used today I feel helps to put things into perspective.

I've used another flower today, that's one every day this week like I promised I would. Look at me!
I did a little homework on piercing and I couldn't believe what I learned.  I didn't realize that you can actually purchase templates to pierce your papers.  Some of those templates were truly amazing and so detailed.  If you are interested in having a look at some of the templates I saw, click here.  

I also found this information from Tammy. She says she ran across a PhotoBucket account with a ton of templates - FREE! Here is a link to the PB album:
She also found that if you use PhotoBucket, you can subscribe to that album and when/if she adds more templates, you can have them sent to your email.

Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations.
Thanks for visiting
