Cute Card Thursday - Punches

Hi everyone, I can't believe it's Friday already and I haven't posted since Monday!

Last week I was quite relieved that I'd finished all my cards, and as I'd made and sent loads this year I'd had enough really, how lovely to pack all my christmas goodies away for another year then.
So why is it that no matter how many cards you send you always receive a couple from people you hadn't sent to, and why is it that they are always the first ones you receive?
I had to get all my christmas bits and bobs back out again and make some more! I thought while everything was back out again I'd actually make more than I needed, just in case! hopefully that is the last now and I've packed everything away again! Ah well, the best laid plans......

To cheer myself up I thought I'd enter a card challenge, so this one is for the Cute card Thursday challenge, which is: Punches - This week we like you to dust off your punches (not die cuts!) and use them on your cards, you can either punch some borders or corners or use punched out shapes on your cards.
Obviously those of you that know me have guessed this was a great excuse to use my gorgeous Martha Stewart punch yet again (I know.... and I'm sure I will get fed up with using it one day - but not yet!)

Card Details:
* Whiff of Joy 'Willow with lantern' image sent to me by Becky
* Red miri and silver glitter cardstock from my stash
* Sentiment designed on PC
* Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch
* Coloured with Letraset Pro Markers

I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with another challenge card, until then, thank you for visiting and for the lovely comments you leave me.
