Play in the dirt!

Ever since I saw this stamp set in the Occasions Mini catalog (Something Sweet), I saw a magnifying glass using the "handle" and circle stamp. Most samples I've seen use these pieces as a baby rattle, but I kept seeing the glass! I finally got around to playing around with the idea this weekend. I should have done the word placement a little differently, but this was a fun try. And it's always fun to try to create creatures out of paper punches. :)
Another project I'd like to try is to put a butterfly in the center, perhaps on a die cut or stamped flower. I think the butterflies embossed and cut with the Beautiful Wings embosslits would work perfectly with this. But since I don't have it yet, it will have to be a project for another day. (Patience... patience... I tell myself!)
