Week of Punches

Yesterday I met my friend Hanneke at Dolls & Decorations where we had a fun day with lots of make & takes. Hanneke went on holiday to the USA at the end of August. Before she left we asked her aunt - who lives in the USA - to already look for some Martha Stewart punches for us. She bought 2 butterfly punches (the classic one is not shown in the picture below) and the lovely Doily Lace punch. And Hanneke found us the ZigZag punch. Thanks, girl!

Due to Carla I fell in love with the gorgeous Fiskars embossing border punches. I wasn't able to find the punches in the Netherlands, but fortunately there is eBay. I just love that site! I found the punches in the UK for a very reasonable price and just had to order them. I got them in the mail last Tuesday and already played with them. Unfortunately I can't show you the cards because I made them for the December issue of the Dutch magazine Cards Only.

Speaking of Carla and Cards Only.......Carla shares an exciting toot on her blog today. She has been asked to write an article and have her cards featured in the March 2009 issue of the dutch magazine Cards Only. I am so happy for Carla. She is the Queen of Cards to me. Her designs are always so gorgeous and she always inspire me. I am sure that the Dutch Cards Only readers will love her cards as much as I do. Congrats, Carla!!

Nothing else to show today, but make sure to check in tomorrow as I will reveal my DT card for 2 Sketches 4 You.

See you tomorrow!
