SCORE!!!  I made another entry for the Moxie Fab blog's Tuesday Trigger Challenge cuz this popped into my head, insisting to be made!  I've had this pom pom trim for over a year, untouched (I know, sinful).  But, I couldn't quite figure out how to use it.  Some things just stump me.  Or mebbe, I should say, they lay in wait . . . for just the right time to strike me.  Yeah.  That sounds bettah.  More brilliant.  HAH!!!

OK, what was so ridiculously hard about this (for me)?  Nothing.  It's just that I have an aversion to CUTTING up pretty trim.  But, to use it on a card, meant I had to CUT OFF SOME OF DA' POMS!!!  I actually held my breath, and my hands got shaky as I snipped.  SERIOUSLY!!!  I felt like a bomb diffuser, trying to decide which wire to snip . . . so I wouldn't blow the card to bits.  I know; I'm whacked.

As you can see, we both survived.  Whew

Happy Monday to ya'!
