Punches & Dies @ Oldie But Goodie

A very good morning to you all out there, I'm actually away in the Lake District or at least I hope I am! There are 8 couples so it should be a lot of fun though I'm not too sure about all the walking! Last year we all went to the Italian Lakes and had a heatwave, not expecting the same weather here!

 It's time for my crazy week of a post on 3 consecutive days and to start the week this time its over to


and the very lovely Janice is in charge! Time to get busy with the cutting and show us your

Punches & Die Cuts

I used Stella from this weeks sponsor the mighty ' Bugaboo' and made this into a Passed your test card as when I needed one recently I didn't have one. The main card has been made with the largest of the nesties scalloped circle and the fabby clouds are from Dienamics MFT.
Coloured with Copics, the paper is I think MME, but it was just a scrap laying around so I could be wrong! The ribbon, buttons and card have all come from my stash.
Head over to the main challenge blog to see some more fabulous inspiration from my lovely team mates and all the details of this challenge.

Remember to tell us what you have used that is over 6 months old to qualify for the prize.

As I mentioned already this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo

Thanks for stopping by and I will get to visit everyone when I get back!

Before I go, as I'm away  I'd just like to wish my lovely lovely friend and team mate Debs a very very

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I love your pink-round-driving passed-card!!
Love the clouds, I have been looking for a die like that, and ended up buying the Magnolia wich I love, but I still think is a little too big!
Fabulous colouring again sweetie!
