Gettin' a little PUNCHY!!!

It's Tuesday!!!! I know, big surprise there... My DD made me a new watermark. I think it is still a little light, so we'll work on it, but I think it's beautiful and I'm thrilled to launch it today. Don't be surprised if it morphs some over the next while as it is tweaked.

This Tuesday, the challenge on the JBelle blog is to pull out those *uber fab* Martha Stewart punches and use them to doll up your card. Lindsey has just received a shipment of NEW MS punches, so check them out if you have a few minutes. I may not be a MS fan, but I love all manner of paper crafting tool, so I can't fault the woman for have a talented crew of designers - we should all be so fortunate!

CHA has just wrapped up and *good golly!* there is all manner of wonderful thing being released right now. Lindsey has a schwack of new Inkadinkado in stock and they are AMAZING!!! There are a few that made my jaw drop when I saw them. I'm not an advocate for conspicuous consumption of paper crafting items, but you know, sometimes the 'ol mojo needs a kick in the pants with a little new inspiration.


Here's my card for today's JBelle challenge;


I used Doodle Flowers from Inkadinkado and watercoloured the image. I paper toled the flower with 2 layers of leaves and 3 layers for the bud. For the life of me I can't remember the name of this punch, but it's MS and TOTALLY matched the designer paper. It was meant to be!

Please play along with us! When you upload to SCS, use the code JBE065 so we can find you and leave some love! Take a little time to boo through the rest of the JBelle DT to give your mojo a little boost, and enjoy your day!

stamps; doodle flowers (inkadinkado)
paper; raven, coconut swirl, flamingo (bazzill), porcelain dp (basic grey), cold press watercolour paper
