Punches and Dies

Good morning everyone!  Today sees the start of a new Challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme this week is:

PUNCHES AND DIES

So get your Cuttlebugs, Big Shot and Grand Caliburs out and get cracking with your die cuts!  Of course if you don't have those then you need to get cracking with all your lovely punches you've got stashed away - Martha Stewart, Woodware, Tonic and so on - I think you all get the picture now lol!!  Here is what I have made:


I have used the lovely Mummybug by Lexi which you can get here at Fairy Dust Crafts. I have cut and matted using Spellbinders rectangles dies.  The corner dies are Cuttlebug.  The flower is Spellbinders, cloud is Memory Box Die, the butterflies are a Woodward punch and the border is Nellie Snellen die (I think). Plenty of dies and punches there I think!!  The papers are a mixture of Pink Petticoat digis and Echo Park Yours Truly.  I have coloured Mummybug with Copics and Prisma Pencils and added a bit of Glossy Accents to the dew drop.  This week we are sponsored by:


Who will kindly give the lucky winner 5 images of their choice!!

So pop over to Lexi's now and see what the talented team have come up with and then get your punches and dies out and get punching!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Punches and Die Cuts
Crafty Boots - No Girls Allowed
Black and White and Touch of Red - Gingerloft


I'd also like to welcome my new followers and send them a big thank you and warm welcome!!  Coops has brought it to my attention that she cannot view my blog everytime she just gets a white screen - I really don't know what is going on there but if anyone else has had similiar problems I'd be interested in finding out.  Also, if anyone knows the solution I would be really grateful!  That's it from me for today, see you tomorrow - take care xx
