Fussy Cut Darling Donkey

I am one of those strange individuals who doesn't mind fussy cutting. I know... weird. Sheesh! I even own a Scan N Cut but sometimes it's just easier (or quicker) to take a pair of sharp scissors and snip, snip, snip. It is kind of soothing, in fact. Sooooo...when I saw the Ways to Use It Snip & Cut Challenge (#WT828), I didn't go hunting for images with scissors or any other scissors-related product. I grabbed my sharp scissors and fussy cut a darling donkey.

The donkey (and Hee Haw sentiment) are from the Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration Darling Donkeys stamp set that just arrived in my mail this week. This set makes me smile so I added the "smile" sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strip Backgrounds stamp/die set t my card, too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

So you got the donkeys. I haven't seen anyone, except demos, use it. It is a darling set and you did such a cute scene. I love fussy cutting too. It's very therapeutic. Before dies were even thought about, I used to trace lettering from stencils and cut out my letters by fussy cutting. They make beautiful titles.

I just love all of the cards I have seen using this set- so very fun!!! Your card is adorable and quit fun! OK, so how often do you snip off a skinney leg or stem on a flower? LOL
