Happy Friday Everyone!!  I hope you are all ready for the weekend!  I know I am!!  We are all still recuperating from the flu and really can use some down time.

Today I would like to share the new challenge at Wags n Whiskers hosted by the sweet Darlene- Wags N Whiskers guest this month!!!  Darlene challenges us to use punches on our creation!!!  Easy peasy right?  We hope you can all join in!!

Wags n Whiskers challenges are every other week.
This will give you more time to be able to participate with our challenges.

One random participant will win a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of your choice.
You can still use any stamp you would like, but if you use a Wags 'n Whiskers image, you will also be entered into a separate drawing for a free Wags 'n Whiskers Digital Stamp.
Here is my take on the challenge using the darling He Loves Me 
image illustrated by the extremely talented Crissy Armstrong!  Isn't she just adorable!!  I colored her with copics.  This image is available as a rubber stamp here and digital stamp here.



The dp is from Die Cuts with a View-At Home collection. The punch I used for the borders is a Martha stewart Shell border punch.  The twigs are also punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  The flowers are Blue mini roses from ZVA Creative which I added sparkle too.  The ivory dotted dp is also embossed.  The ribbon is May Arts Light Blue Silk Ribbon.  The lace is from Jo Ann Fabrics.

For more inspiration for the "Punch" challenge at Wags n Whiskers, please visit my dt sisters:

Should you join the Wags N Whiskers punch challenge, please link your creation at the Wags n Whiskers blog here
