DCM - getting punchy with it

The dare this week is set by the lovely Keryn.

"I love punches and use them on almost every card I make. This week I want you to join with me and make a card, any type, any theme but it needs to use your latest craft punch purchase. If you haven't bought any
punches for a while or don't own any at all your latest craft purchase will be quite acceptable"

For some reason, I don't own many punches. It's not that I don't like them because I do. They are just something I rarely buy. The last punch I bought was a Martha Stewart border punch (double scallops) and I think it my have been last year! Here is my card...
The papers, letters and house are all crate paper.

DCM - favourite things

I'm back with a card for Daring cardmakers. The fabulous Kathy has asked us to use at least 5 of our favourite things on our cards. Now, being a bit of a scatterbrain, I did actually interpret the dare all wrong and thought you were meant to put 5 of a favourite thing on your card (durr!) but it still worked out because I have used 5 of my fave things/techniques anyway.
My favourite things are.....

buttons (of course!)
the colour green
scalloped square card blanks from Craftwork Cards
and of course doodling!

Anyhow, expect another card on here soon. I bought a few bits at the Harrogate show last month and they are still in their bag. Have just got over flu and my hubby has broken his ankle so it's been a bit hectic the last few weeks but I so enjoyed making this card last night and I can't wait to get stuck into my new papers :o)
