MMCS Challenge - Dies or Punches!

Good Morning!
Blimey it's the first of September today, we'l be digging out those jumpers and extra thick Pajamas any day now, eek! 

Anyhoo back to the point of this post which is this month over at the MY MUMS CRAFT SHOP BLOG we have the challenge of Dies or Punches! I dug out my trusty Magnolia Tree die again for this challenge and of course used a Nestie to cut out my focal point. Both the sentiment stamp and papers I used are available on the MMCS website.

Last week I was also asked by the company CULT PENS to make some cards using one of their new product lines, MT TAPE! You can see on my card that I have used a solid gold and spotted gold designed tape, these tear easily and I think look great as a finishing touch on creations!

12 Tags of 2014 ... August (with a twist!)

Good Morning!
I didn't manage to join in with last months tag over at 12 TAGS OF 2014 so I was adamant that I would make sure I did find time to join in for this month's! However I gave it a little twist just as the title suggests and made a card instead of a tag. I also changed the colours and gave it a festive feel as I wanted to use the gorgeous Styled Woodlands stamp set again that Tim released this year.
Okay so as always here is a peek at how Tim's tag looks ...


... and now here is what I came up with!
