Hi everyone!!

Tosh here, and I have some new challenges for you for the month of February.

This month, it's all about the "Tools". When you hear the word "tools", most people think men and their cars, or the wood shop, etc. But not in the crafting world. When it comes to stamping, I'm all about tools. What's new, and what's my tried and true!! Well, for this first week, you need to include a punched piece somewhere on your card. Whether it be a border, corner, flower, circle, whatever shape, but it must be punched (not a diecut). I love my dies, but I also have a huge addiction to punches. I won't even begin to count my stash, and even if I did, I would never admit the number. :o)

We'd love to see how you use punches too, so if you would like to play along all you have to do is create a card using the above challenge, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword CCEE1105. Don't forget to come back here and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see your card too.
