When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

My first project in my craftroom

I colored this image sometime ago but I can't make anything out of it because I don't have papers.  Cleaned room must have inspired me!

Stamp: Penny Black (image) and Flourishes (leaves and sentiment)
Inkpad: Memento and CTMH
Coloring: Spectrum Noir

Tools: Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug and Fiskar paper trimmer
Paper: SU!, Martha Stewart and K & Company
Embellishment: Prima (flowers), Mambi (rhinestones), K & Company (brad) and Dollar Tree (satin ribbon)

To note, I finally give in and bought those metal shims that they suggest you use when cutting intricate dies.  Goodness, I wonder what took me so long.  You should have one too and you'll see what difference it makes...

This is soo beautiful hun, I really love how you build this up and your coloring is so awesome.
What are these metal shimms? I´ve heard some talk about them too, but haven´t been able to find them anywhere yet? But maybe if I knew, what they´re called and who have them, I could find them too LOL. I agree it´s really n art to cut these very intrigate dies some times, so would love to find them too, so if you can tell me where I can find them, I would be soo grateful hun.
