Taking A Punch

I can usually get inspired by a trip to my local craft store, but today I've got a story of being overtaken and molested by it. I was going through the clearance aisle of my local Joann's craft store when I spied the mother of all punches. In fact, this is BY FAR THE COOLEST punch I've ever seen!!! Now WHY was this punch being given away at the mere price tag of $3.00 (ok, and there were TWO THERE...that's NUTS)? HOW did I manage to be in the right place at the right time to snag this hidden gem? And WHY had I never seen this punch before? I gotta be honest, I not only would have paid full price for this beauty, I would have probably paid double on steal-bay... that's how great this punch is. There HAD to be a catch here.... did this punch not work? At $3, who cares! I took it and RAN to the checkout. Well, you can tell by the above pic that this punch not only works, but is every bit as cool as I'm tellin ya! I've even started punching in red and black cardstock just to save the little card suites to use as confetti down the road. A waste of perfectly good cardstock... I THINK NOT!!! Doesn't EVERYONE need card suite confetti??? I mean it's great for weddings, some funerals, New Years, retirement parties and casino themed Bat-mitzvahs... to name a few. I plan on using some to fill a shaker card. I LOVE MY NEW PUNCH! Just thought I'd share! :)
Now for the "goods"! The images are Tiddly Inks digi images and the punch is an EK Success punch. Run, don't walk, to your nearest Joann's... hopefully you will find this gem on clearance too! ;)
