Use Die Cuts - No Punches

So late with posting my card today!!! .... since last week our older son has started to learn driving so I've been taking him everyday to practice driving on my car straight after work. Needless to say, this, coupled with all the other things to do, hasn't been leaving me much time for anything much and today it's one of those days that I go to Bokwa!

Oh well, better late than never.

So here's my DT card for today's new challenge at

The theme for this week is
Use Die Cuts - No Punches

For my card this week I used one of the many gorgeous images from Kenny K, which I colored with my promarkers. 
Background DP is from Bearly Mine, four different dies... and no punches!! 
I really loved how it turned out and Naomi really liked it too :)

We are this week sponsored by

I thought I would end off my post for today by sharing a photo of me while running in the Malta Half Marathon last Sunday! I did it in 2hrs 05 minutes so I was really pleased with myself since it's the first time for me. My legs are now feeling much better but I was walking like a penguin the day after ha ha :P

Another Valentine's Day card

I did :) Hubby first booked a table for lunch for us, leaving office earlier of course and then in the evening we went out again for dinner, but this time with friends! We really enjoyed it! So of course this evening we didn't go out and so while watching TV now I thought I would share the card I made for hubby for Valentine's Day.

A very simple and clean card, using again my hearts die which I had got from Simon Says ... my fave die at the moment.. and then the letters die.. all on an embossed white card!! Sometimes the simpler the better.

Love You So...

A nice sunny Sunday here today in Malta, a bit windy but ok and so, for a change, we decided to go out for lunch seeing that our older son is not working today. For a change as well..... I also didn't go out for my run today errrm I just didn't feel like it today :( !! Don't like missing as it's now less than two weeks to go for the marathon, but I will just make up for it next week... and anyway I should now be doing less running to not be tired for the day!

Anyway, I thought I would share this card I made seeing that Valentine's Day is just round the corner.

The image that I used was a freebie last year from Saturated Canary and I colored  her with my promarkers. I kept the card very clean and just used my new die from Simon Says, a sentiment stamp and three red pearls to finish it off.

Here are some challenges I would like to enter.
Craft Your Passion 199 - LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Oldie But A Goodie - VALENTINE (the stamp)
Cute Card Thursday 307 - LOTS OF LOVE
Fussy And Fancy 107 - BE MY VALENTINE
