Hi it's been raining all day today in my part of Portugal so I had a trip to our local Craft shop, and they had just had delivery of  some new punches  I loved this one as soon as I saw it, with these new punches you can punch anywhere on your piece of card it takes up to 220 grams, you can easily punch in the middle of your card too,like I have here on my stitched edge circle, then added it to a scollope edged circle, the punch  it reminds me of a flying saucer, the bottom half is separate from the top, you place your card on the bottom half then the top piece you just put it down on the base and your card too its magnetic then punch out. the butterflies are lovely that come out, I have used both. I think I will be going back for another one of these punches they had a lovely heart one, stars and a couple of others. My sentiment stamp has lost it packet so I am not sure where they came from.

Today  SPARKLES CHRISTMAS  start a new challenge it's  KRAFTY CHRISTMAS  chosen by Jane, who would like to see the use of Kraft card. You can always pop over to Sparkles Christmas where the rest of the DT have some fabulous samples to show you,and lots of inspiration too, and we hope you will join in the fun. For my card I have used a dotted embossing folder, as the background, I used the biggest two  stitched circle dies, one red one white, on the white one  I created some clouds  then I stamped three birds from card-io stamps onto my clouds   the Christmas tree dies are new to me I am not sure of the make as the packet is at home and I only cut a few to bring with me. The truck  I stamped on to Kraft card, then I lined up the parcel stamp and stamped that onto the back of the truck to make it look like the parcels are sat in the back, I coloured them with my crayons before I fussy cut them and the truck out, I added a little glamour dust to the parcels and trees. The Truck  stamp is new I got it for Christmas just gone, I love it, you get the truck, the parcels, a Christmas tree, and a sentiment stamp, plus 3 dies, but I could not use the dies as I don't have a cutting machine here. So that will have to wait until I return home.i have not put a sentiment on it as I am adding it to this years Christmas cards I have already made then I will decide later.
