More Die Cutting?

Hello and welcome, I hope you've had a great weekend. Today I have made a card for LIM 55 which is all about
                               Punches or Die Cuts




I've been stamping and spraying and cutting all afternoon, loads of fun! I really enjoy the LIM challenges, all clean and simple, just fun:0) The shimmer just doesn't show, the light was very difficult today, bright sunshine (whooppee!!) made for too much contrast and my poor camera couldn't cope :{

 Right, Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm now off to have something to eat and when I come back I hope that I will have better service from my Interenet provider because it's been pants all day long and has taken me forever to do this post this evening, I am very hungry now! Hopfully  I'll be at your blog soon and checking out your wonderful creations :0) Here's wishing you a brilliant week, Gay x

I used:
Mini Tattered Flowers, Movers and Shapers, Tim Holtz
Sentiment from PTI
Hero Arts Stencil Flower
Cosmic Shimmer Mist Pearl Mist  and  the smallest amount of Golden Mint!
I bought mine at the Craft Barn

Update, Monday Evening;
I have tried the whole day to connect to the internet and have had no luck till tonight, I'm sorry  I will try and visit soon, Thanks for all your lovely comments.  

We are going to change our internet provider and face 1 or two weeks without internet service and perhaps loosing our telephone number. At home here we are  so fed up with the service we are getting a sacrifice may be called for! What the big companies don't explain when you leave BT is that to get a BT line (which we need for another provider)  an engineer has to come to your house and physically reconnect you. That can be expensive and of course you have to join a queue! Oh I'm so sorry for the rant but I needed to get that off my chest.
Now I'm off to catch up and I really hope my connection stays live TTFN Gay x
