Good morning everyone, I can´t believe it´s almost six months since I made a card, my poor blog has been so neglected this past two years so hopefully now that we have this New Year and I now have my two new hips things will gradually return to normal.

I am so excited to now be part of   Whoopsi Daisy Design Team and this week we have a fabulous theme for you to use your

DIE CUTS and PUNCHES

Make sure you pop along to   Whoopsi Daisy Digi Shop where you will find the most adorable images and even some freebies.


I have used Sheet 389 and coloured her with my copics. Papers are Me to You Spring Chic, punched the leaves and bottom border not wasting those little hearts and die cut the swirl, flower and central panel with my new Die'sire Lace Border 3. Sentiment is from an old See D set and roses from WOC

Challenges:
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Crafty Calendar ... New stash Die'sire Lace Border
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
PanPastel - Anything Goes
Simon Says - New Something
