Punches and Dies

Good morning I hope you had a lovely weekend and are all refreshed for the week ahead.  We had a fabulous time in London. We met Dave's son and his partner Saturday afternoon and went for a drink at the top of Centre Point overlooking all of London. Then we went for cocktails and a meal at a beautiful Art Deco Restaurant they knew in the West End followed by Phantom of the Opera.  Sunday we had breakfast at our favourite place and then strolled up to The British Museum and had a walk round.  I can't believe how lovely the weather was, people were walking around in flip flops and summer clothes, picnicking in the park and when we got up to Preston station to change trains it was blooming freezing!! I sometimes find it hard to believe the change in weather in such a small country!

Anyway I am a bit late this morning with this I suppose I should have scheduled it or posted it before I did my grocery shopping but I didn't!  It is the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme this fortnight is we want to see your punches and dies.  Here is my card:

I actually had this image coloured for a while as I made it for another DT but it was too big so I had to do another. She is called Honey 4 from Scrapper's Delight and I coloured her with my Copics.  I cut her out using Spellbinders Grand Ovals and matted her using Grand Scalloped Ovals. The corner dies are Dienamics and I have used my Martha Stewart Cherish Punch Around The Page Punch for the border and embossed panel.  Sentiments are LOTV and ribbon from The Ribon Girl. Papers are digital from The Sweet Shoppe - Meghan Mullens Unending Joy.  Here is another view:

Please go over to Lexi's to see the rest of the DT's projects.

Thank you so much for coming by today I really appreciate it! Take care xx
