Die-ing for a challenge?

oh I'm just sooo sharp !!

Hello blogworld

So I bet you didn't think you'd see me back again this quick did you!!  Reason for this post, and the reason I'm such a clever so and so, is that that it's a new challenge over at FlatFriends and this time the theme is 'Dies'.

So we would like to see, along with your Emma Canning (FlatFriend) digi, you getting your dies and die-cutting machines out and die-cutting to your hearts content.

So what did I make this time - well to begin with I had a hard time choosing the image, but in the end I picked this cutie and made this card:

 The arty farty:
I used:

Digi Image:
Emma Canning - Geek
coloured with my Promarkers

Spellbinders - Floral Ovals and Oval
Memory Box - Twirled Hearts border

My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found
And, viola, the card you see above!

Hope you will be able to join in with us this month - we'd love to see more of your fabulous entries.


A challenge, or two:
