Mr. Big Shot….

I sing this every time I pull out the Big Shot.  Or I hear Pat Benetar ("Hit me with your Big Shot…" which would kinda hurt!), or Billy Joel ("You had to be a Big Shot, dintcha?").  Ok, I don't know how the words are really written, but that's what it sounds like he's singing.  And don't get me started on the "chew" songs (donchew, wonchew, withouchew….)  It drives me crazy.  (Oh – another song…)

As you can see, I'm back in my stamp room!  The HVAC guys didn't take very long at all, and there actually was room for two of them and me.  I stayed in my little stamping corner out of the way, though.

I was looking for ideas for the Big Shot this morning, and found a couple I couldn't wait to try.

This idea is from Angela Riddell.  She used a little bit wider bag with the Top Note die.  I had these little bags a friend bought at a yard sale and gave me, and I thought the flower Sizzlet would look great on it (or out of it, I guess).  I put the die inside the bag, then made the little "sandwich" with the platform, cutting pad, bag/Sizzlet, cutting pad.  I cut a small piece of transparency sheet and taped it inside so the Kisses wouldn't fall out.

Paper:  Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss

This is an idea from "craftycaro."  I had an extra Brocade Blue "Top Note" cut out, as well as some flowers and leaves from when I was playing last week.  It was pretty simple to put it all together

Here's the final one for today. I'm really loving the "A Rose Is a Rose" set.
