Alrighty, are you ready for a new challenge?

Challenge #9 ~ Punches or Dies (2/3/13, Midnight PST - 2/15/13 Noon PST)
It's pretty self explanatory, use either a punch, die or both on your creation.  Doesn't matter how many you use as long as we can see it.  If we see a Y&FH image on your creation you will get 2 chances to play.  If you don't have a Y&FH image yet you can still participate by using any stamp from our list of Friends of Yumi & Fumi companies.  They include Sister StampsLa-La Land Crafts, and The Greeting Farm!! 
I'm sure you have at least one of those to work with. :)
Check out the prize up for grabs...

Next up we've got some samples to share and inspire you.  Today GD Denice, Rosemary, Renate' and myself are sharing.  Eva, Kim and Sandie will pop in over the next 12 days to share their samples.

First up is
February Guest Designer, Denice Bartucci using Fumi with Messenger Bag
I spy a border punch and an oval die.   Lovin' all the pretty bling and the gorgeous papers.   Two of my favorite parts about this is Fumi's pink hair and that adorable border inside the oval!!   Me likey!!

Here is my card featuring Fumi Panda and looks like she's got some little friends playing HIde-n-seek.   I call this one, "Hangin' with my Gnomies!" {hehehe} I used various Spellbinder circles, Stampin' Up circle punches and C.C. Design Cutters Bubble Alpha letter dies.

I don't know about you but Chase is looking pretty good here.  Now I spy a gorgeous heart banner die from La-La Land Crafts and a MS border punch.  So totally cool!!

 Lookee, lookee at all the pretty greens and yellows on Renate's card.  I spy lovely colored ginkgo punched leaves.  It's beautiful!!

Alrighty, now it's your turn to play.  You have until Friday, 2/15/13 at Noon (PST) to link up your project.  ONE entry per participant and you must link directly to your post and not your blog. All challenge details can be found in the Challenge info tab at the top of our Home page.

Before I sign off, a reminder to come and LIKE us on our FB page.  We're trying to reach 200 likes and once we do, we're giving a way a stamp or two.  So lots of places to look for a chance to win some cuteness.

 Have fun and we can't wait to see what punches and dies you use for your project.
