**Update - i'm back from work! course was yesterday and someone forgot to tell us!!! oh dear!! oh well day off for me!!! craftyness ahead!

I'm not normally one for simple and stuff like that so of course when i do CAS i tend to over kill it haha! but i love how my card came out in the end!

I basically chopped out three circles different sizes with my nesties stamped the gorjuss Stampin' Up! flowers on kraft card with brown chalks and versamark and wanged them behind made my front with a sizzix embossing plate punched out some flowers and added lots of bling in the shape of gems pearls and the oh so forgotten dew drops! to create.....

Punching Crazy!

Morning all!

It's snowing!!! yay!! we had a little snow here in Shropshire last week but that vanished pretty much over night! no where near as much as some places around the UK, it's been around 0 - minus 2 here and a few of my friends on facebook and things have been showing there iphone weather at -10 and -13 stuff that!! that's seriously too cold for me!

Well... i'll shut up about the snow now (tho i am secretly hoping for at least a foot too much so i dont have to go to work) haha!!! anyway this week it's team Carlys challenge at charisma and this week's challenge is....


Use at least two punches! Punches are something i forget i even own even though i have tons i think alot of us crafters forget we even own half of our craftrooms at some point! haha

So today i've gone for clean and simple i'd actually seen something similar on pintrest a few weeks back and thought i'd give it a whirl! I've even dug out my embossing folders!! something else i forget i have haha!!!

Totally not my normal style eh?!?! but i love it so quick and simple my two punches obviously the butterfly which is martha stewart my favourite! EVER! and i've finally brought a new corner punch as my SU one has never worked properly since i brought it so that's gone in the bin finally! I don't rate there punches after that!

The papers i've used are actually scraps (it's a fab way to use them all up!) They're all a mix of my minds eye papers don't ask me which set i can't remember! hehe, the friends sentiment is by kaisercraft which i brought last year at the NEC they're lovely sentiments!

The embossing folder is a papermania one i've had for ages but i love the pattern!

I'll stop rabbiting on now haha! we have some lovely sponsors this week as always so why not pop over and join us!
