Hello out there - sorry no pic of my pressy from my blog friend but the maestro is still on holiday ooops at work and I'd forgotten I'd made a card for the mid month reminder on our Crafty Time Challenge.  Just to remind you, the theme is to use Punches and/or dies.   Such a difficult task for me I must say!  When you see the pic of my pressy and what has been said about it, you will know that I am talking warbles......again!

I love this little girl on the stool with her odd socks - bet she's got another pair like that in the drawer!  Soooooorrry!  Our theme is open for another two weeks, so why not have a go.  I'm sure you have one or three dies up your sleeves which you are longing to use again!!

7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi from Sherri Baldy (sorry don't know the title, it wasn't with the digi)
Paper - 'Hugs with Henry' - free with a magazine
Elegant Oval Layering Die Set - Tonic Dies
French Collection Border and Tag dies - Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson
Graph'it Markers
Cream card from stash
Flowers, buttons from stash
Leaves - WOC
Stamens - Brenda's Lace and Ribbons

In case you are wondering where the tag is - I cut it in half and used it at the top and bottom of the oval die cut!  I've made this as a birthday card for a little friend so will pop a sentiment on it very very soon!

I do hope you like my card and have the time to leave a word or two!  I'd also lurve to see your cards on our challenge blog, there's three chances of winning a prize from our sponsor!

Lots of big hugs to you all and please take care of yourselves.

Love    Sue xxx
