Die cuts and punches at Crafty Catz

 How is it possibly Friday again??? I seem to have lost some days somewhere this week! Next week will go even faster as the kids are going back to school so I'll be back to the childcare routine- picking up granddaughters from school, it's only one day a week but I'm so looking forward to having them around for a few hours again. It should be pretty safe too, both hubby and I have had our vaccines- both girls have had the virus and have tested positive for immunities (they were part of an NHS trial and had blood tests last month) so fingers crossed they won't catch it again. 

Anyway- Friday it is -so my card is created for this week's challenge at CRAFTY CATZ. Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbions

Aunty Sue is hosting this week , the optional theme is die cuts and punches.
 used a cute digi from Polkadoodles, coloured with Copic markers. The papers are from a Heartfelt pad, I've used several dies and a much loved border punch (Martha Stewart).
There are a lovely variety of projects from the Crafty Catz ladies,  no sponsor images this week so we could choose our own- do hop over and take peek.
Thanks for visiting
keep safe and have a good weekend
