Week 727 - dies and/or punches

Good morning lovely crafters; we hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for your gorgeous entries into last week's 'add some sparkle' challenge.  It was lovely to have you join us and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful creations.   Don’t forget to pop back later to find out who won the £10 voucher courtesy of Rachelle Anne Miller and also who Elaine has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Marie from Team 1, and she has given us the theme of ‘dies and/or punches'.  Marie doesn't mind what you make this week as long as you include some die cuts or punched pieces.  This is always a very popular challenge; I know I can’t make a card anymore without reaching for the dies, so hopefully this week’s challenge will have lots of entries.  Such a great challenge and we cannot wait to see what you create.  Please remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card but whatever you make please remember you must include a hand coloured image to be eligible for our prize draw.  So come on, grab your markers, and have fun!

Our generous sponsor this week is Dr Digi's House of Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.   Most of the DT have used images from Dr Digi's HOS on their cards.

The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):

Another week of wonderful inspiration from the DT!! We hope you can join in with our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you create.

Stay safe and sending our love to you all.
