 Simon Says (Wednesday):Anything Goes

 I made something new with a new product (just picked up this MFT Houndstooth coverup); so I'm entering the following challenges...

NBUS Challenge #10

Work it Wednesday January 2017:Make Something New with a New Product

Here's a handy tip I learned from Laurie's tutorial on Jennifer McGuire's blog.

Get some press 'n seal -you can use the rest in the kitchen!

 Here is where I press 'n sealed the cut pieces and flipped over for glue application.

~That's the long and short of it~

-my new phrase and I don't know where I picked it up-

my hubby says I say it all the time now. ;)


Thanks for stopping by friends~
