Mo's dp 2 challenge dt

 We have our new challenge for Mo's challenge blog up and running, this week its "Anything goes with the optional extra of the above sketch.  I decided to go with the sketch, just flipped it to suit what i wanted to do.
 this "Buds" image available in Mo's store has gotta be one of my favourites of Mo's images as i have used it quite a few times, i just love it!
 A look at my simple inside of my card.  i used a new Xcut shape for the postage style matting of my image and insert inside my card, added a few buttons and was quite pleased with the end result.  I have been trying to concentrate on using some of the older things in my craft room and noticed that my MS border punches are looking rather neglected, ie:  gathering a bit of dust, so i blew this one off that i forgot the name of to use on my card.
ok friends thats it from me, i am exhausted, my husband is away on business and i am up at all ungodly hours of the morning, when we all should be having a lay in, no rest for the dying in this house, so i am really tired after a week of running after the kids and playing taxi.
See y"all next week
