New scrappy finds

Hello , hello again , 
blogging friends ! 
My main pc was down & out for the past 5 days 
& my mojo was lost too during that time it seemed. 

To remedy things a little ,
I took a detour to one of our fave LSS' today 
& brought home 
this new Martha Stewart border punch - beaded arcs . 

this Martha Stewart Scoring Board ! 

As always , I have to test drive my new finds ASAP .... 
& quickly made a joy fold card here - 

I followed the tutorial I found here 
A deceptively easy to make card it would seem 
but nothing like having the right scoring tool to make it in minutes.
Believe you me ! 
This scoring board just might be my new fave tool for now ! lol . 

Here's a review of the Martha Stewart Scoring Board vs the Scor-Pal 
for anyone who's interested. 
& let me know of your latest fave border punch in the comments section if you like. ;)

I totally agree........there's nothing like new scrappy goodies to get the mojo flowing! Love the fun joy fold card. That opening is just so unique and different, and I adore those happy papers.
So glad your computer is up and running again. :)

Hi Pearl!! I have been missing you! Glad your computer is fine and your mojo has returned! I love that new punch and am in the mood for a new punch myself! Susan just bought the Martha scoring board and it is actually sitting in my studio at this moment. I haven't given it a go yet. Susan made some awesome cards where she scored a bit of a frame on the front of the card. Very beautiful. Your card is lovely as always! Have fun with your new toys! :)
