Punches & Dies at The Paper Shelter

Thank goodness for a day off & I really need it today as still feeling rough from this silly cold (I think it's Man Flu lol cos it's really knocked me for 6) & it was such a long day at work yesterday.  I have so much to do today as I was poorly at the weekend & didn't get anything on my To Do list done (keep your fingers crossed that I have a productive day today :D ).  

Today's new challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Punches & Dies" & we have some wonderful new DT members joining us so I hope you will give them a warm welcome & check out their fabulous creations.  For my card I used TPS "Soccer Star" image, isn't he fab & his footy kit looks just like the kit that the team my hubby plays for/manages :D  I did go a bit overboard with the dies & punches using a banner die, border punch, star punches & speech marks punch hehe.  The papers are digi & the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  I hope you can join us & as usual our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But this is providing you have used one of their beautiful products on your card, but even if you don't they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. 

The challenges:
Dutch Dare - For the Boys
Dilly Beans - Stripes
Pause Dream Enjoy - For the Boys
Created with Love - Anything Goes
ABC - Anything Goes 
Deep Ocean - For a Boy
V's Sweet Ideas - Masculine Theme 
Anything Goes - Make it Manly 
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
