You know it's funny sometimes how things turn out...  I like the eyelets on cards and decided it was time to check into getting an eyelet setter.  After doing a bit of research I found they were a bit "pricey" and bulky to use.  I was also surprised to learn they could be noisy!  In any case, I decided to wait a bit and look at them on the mainland when I go next week.  THEN, I got my weekly e-mail from Gina K. at Stamp TV and guess what her tutorial was on!?!  Setting eyelets with a ballpoint pen, yes a pen!  Check out the video.  Well, I took the bait, hook line and sinker!  And am I ever glad I did.  For a fraction of the price and so much less work I made my 1st card using their technique.  It was so simple and fun!  It's a shame the ribbon covers so much of the eyelets.  Can't wait to use them again and have them where they are more visible.  Something else new on this card is the stamped sentiment.  It's a cute stamp I picked up on E-bay for 99 cents!  With postage it was a whopping $3.49, lol.  I think I'm starting to sound like a cheap skate, but like I've said before, "I love a bargain!"  ALSO I have entered this card over at Flutter By Wednesdays.
