I haven't been here in six years. *gulp*
As I was tooling around in my posts que, I discovered a number of posts I suspect may never have been published. (Surely this cannot be correct, right?) But, just in case, they weren't. I'm publishing this one now because this is such a stinkin' cute pun'kin'!
Take THAT, Mr. Easter Bunny!
Here's what was in my draft that was to have been published 10/28/2012 (for heaven's sake!):
This is also my latest card for Outside the Box, the Memory Box Design Team's blog.

Take a scrap piece of cardstock - about 4"-6" long and adhere your circle to the end of it. Now you can apply the embossing ink and powder and be able to hold your circle by its "handle" so you don't burn your fingers when you heat emboss it!
