Getting punchy!

but no violence, promise!!

Hello blogworld,

Well there you go it's been a few days again hasn't it since I waffled on at you!  I have been busy, no really I have, making DT cards, which will appear over the next week but I've also got a niggle of a cold that is throwing me off kilter.

Still I'll sniff, cough and carry on!  Before I get onto business though, I will say hello to my newest follower - thank you for deciding to join me on my bloggy waffles and occasional cards!  Hope you enjoy!!

Can you believe it's my time already for a second DT card for Moving Along with The Times and this week's  theme is 'Punch it Out' - so we'd like to see your punches or dies used on your project.

We are sponsored this week by MazyArt with a prize of 5 digi images of your choice:

The DT were very kindly allowed to pick an image of their choice and this is the card I made with my selection:

Dies / Punches:

Anything else?
Bit of glittery cotton.

So I hope you like, and I look forward to seeing your entries.  I'm sure there will be loads - there's lots of us that like our dies and punches, aren't there!!

See you soon,

Great job on this card. The image is so nice and you did a great job on the hading of her hair!
Love the woodgrain background paper and the design papers to go with!

That is a lovely MB die!

I thought it was either a motorhome or a static caravan. I pronounce it the same way as you do!
We call them park models...park models differ from a regular single wide trailer as they are shorter and usually built in such a way that you can buy a additional room of rooms so it sits sort of in an L shape off the park model...

They are very common in holiday resorts here...We have a 5th wheel but DH would have picked a park model if he had his druthers...
Where we have our lot, we pay our yearly taxes and electricity is at no charge to us. I make sure we use the electric heat and I even bring a huge electric griddle and frypan!

If we had a park model we would be metered for our electricity and the taxes would be a couple hundred higher.

I just asked as thought it might be your scrapbook room or your DH's hobby room!
