Hello there,
How are things with you? We have had more beautiful rain and the place is sooo green now! The weekends will be spent on the mower for sure!!

I came across the Mini Challenge for Annas Craft Cupboard which can be found HERE on FACEBOOK and it is to use PUNCHES! Well one of the first things I bought at a scrap shop was the Retro flower punch and since then my assortment of punches has grown.. They are one of my go to things to use to create embellishments on my layouts and cards.. so I thought I would join in with this challenge!! I have used several punches for my page..

some closer views..

One of my oldest punches would be this Martha Steward Butterfly punch.. and the Half Daisy edge punch is another one of my favourites... in fact this is my second punch, my first one broke, and when I took it apart it was just worn out!!! So I was so very happy to get another one from Tania who was having a sale of old scrap stuff.. I hope I dont wear this one out as I have learnt they aren't making this punch anymore..

I have used 3 different edge punches, the retro daisy punch and the heart punch which have the words paper shapers on them.. not sure of the brand.. maybe Fiskers?? A leaf punch and a rounded corner punch!

and my layout..

I enjoyed getting out some of my favourite punches for this layout!!

Thanks so much for dropping on by, and thank you too for the lovely comments you leave me to read.. enjoy the rest of this week!!
