Punches and/or dies

Morning and hello! I know, two days in a row. How strange!? But with a new year and the old one ending with 53 weeks etc I have now the Paper Shelter and Passion for Promarkers the same week and was able to switch team over at the Winter Wonderland, otherwise everything would end up at the same week. Thanks for making it possible Eileen and Alison. :) Today it's time for the Paper Shelter and the theme is set to Punches and/or dies.

Ok then, I have a card but it's not yet finished. I ended up spending a little longer in the "sports hall" yesterday than expected. My oldest was playing an indoor tournament in soccer and the played brilliant and ended up in the finals. Huge loss there but they have never played as good indoor as they did today. Well, maybe last week then. It have been a really busy time with lots of soccer the last week. Two tournaments each for the boys and it takes a day or three to get back to normal. Even longer now when I have so much trouble with my fibro. Worst is the head aches that is hitting me more or less everyday. Thinking maybe my meds have something to do with that as well, not just the tenison in the shoulders...

I keep saying it must turn, and I will stick to that. I will try to do more relaxation and work out more hopefully that will bring the tension in the muscles down, but I find it so boring. Have over done this with work outs before and had to tell myself that I hate it. I have been successful in that. :)


The card then. I have used yet another boy's image from the Shelter. This one is called "Adorable fireman". I've been a bit naught and changed the number on the helmet as the youngest have a friend celebrating his 8 birthday early in the year, so thought he would get this one. He is coloured with my Letraset markers and I've tried to keep the card fairly clean looking. The designer papers are from We are memorie keepers, an old pad I found laying around.

The dies I have used is from Moa Pyssel, it's the sentiment die, the stars are from sizzix. And the border punch is from Fiskars. Sorry once again about the photo. It's snowing here today and the light is shifting from one minute to the other and I really have not figured out how to work in a good way with my big camera yet. Too big files even set on the lowest size. Maybe I should spend some time working on that when everything get back to normal again and then some training with the new element version I bought before Christmas. :)


As always when it comes to the Paper Shelter challenges we have a gift voucher up worth $30 playing with any TPS product and three images is up for anyone that plays with a different brand.

Well, this is it for today. We're waiting for you over at the Paper Shelter and the challenge is nice and easy. Punches and/or dies is our theme of the week.

Love n hugs
