Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge No 59 - Use Punches and Dies

Hello Everyone

Hope you are well. Yesterday was the last day of our Easter Holiday (although I did have to go in to work for 2 1/2 days). We had a lovely time in the New Forest although it could have done with being a lot warmer and just a shame that all the scenery looked brown as no leaves/greenery has sprouted yet! At least the caravan was warm - the park was lovely and we would like to go back to that area again.

Anyway, on with the important stuff.... Today sees the start of the new fortnightly challenge at Forever Friends and the theme this time is to use punches and dies and this challenge is sponsored by:-


For further details on the sponsors and the prizes on offer and to join in the challenge pop over to the Forever Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card for the challenge:-

For my card I've used one of the new Forever Friends Kraft stamps and two of the digital papers from Bearly Mine and I've used my brand new Spellbinders dies! Thought I'd make it spring-like - come on Spring hurry up and warm the weather up a bit!

Well it's back to work tomorrow so going to be tough trying to fit in going to Crafty Corner - need to at some point I still have to make by brother's wedding card and that is only in 2 weeks time!

Bye for now and don't forget to join in the challenge at Forever Friends.
