Punches: A New Use for your Round Tab Punch?

You've probably seen this done, but I hadn't, so I thought I'd share it. So simple. Just cut the tab punched shape in half and stick on. I thought it gave a masculine look the card. (I need to make more variety...) The details for this card are the same as this & this Snow Burst card, except it's on River Rock c.s. LOVE how River Rock goes with so many BasicGrey papers. Thank goodness the in-colours will be around for another catalogue, so I can stock up when Sale-a-Bration comes (It's from February 1st to March 17th this year.) Just 3 days 'til the retired stamp set list is out-->Play funeral march now! LOL. The retired accessories list comes out on Dec. 10th. MEEP!

Time for THE New Year's Resolution: I will not be the world's worst commodity fetishist--English translation: I will curb my unnatural love of stamping things! (Believe me?)
