#89 Dies and/or Punches

Good Morning Crafters......I hope you're all enjoying summer now that it's arrived. Of course it means lots of garden cleaning to do, but still I look forward to it, it's amazing how sunshine can change how you feel, it just improves your outlook to no end. I loved the fabulous cards people made last week for our color challenge......such pretty soft pastels, but oh so summery.

  9. Thanks for a great challenge and fab DT inspiration hugs Karen

  10. hello, a question: may we enter only cards or are scrapbook pages ok too? does a cut from a Silhouette or Cricut qualify as a die cut for you???
    many thanks for the great blog and challenges (and prizes!)

    1. You can enter cards, scrapbook layouts or other projects as long as it meets the challenge theme, but no Silhouette or Cricut does not meet the Dies criteria. Dies are the metal dies from any of the numerous companies out there, sorry.
