Crafty Catz Challenge #268 ~ Use your punches & dies

Good evening, my apologies for posting so late, I had intended to shedule this yesterday when I got back from work but things didn't go as planned.  I started the day with a miserable drive to Dorchester in fog and rain for a training session but was unable to take part in the training as my thumb isn't quite back to full fitness!  Got back to the car in the rain, having paid £4 to park all day and only being there half an hour, noticed back tyre needed some air so there I am in the car park in the rain with the compressor but no air going in, so feeling very damp and fed up off I went to the nearest garage and 50p later inflated tyre, checked the rest while I was at it too, well had to get my 50ps worth!  Feeling even more fed up I decided to take an unexpected trip to the Range for some well deserved retail therapy!  So a few crafting goodies later I drive home in the fog and rain and when I get back work has phoned so I return the call only to find they need me to go into work, so much for my idea of taking it as a holiday day!  Towards the end of my shift one of our tenants becomes quite ill, so much so that I ended up getting the paramedics out.  All is good now but by the time everything was done I left work at 12.30 this morning instead of 9.30 last night! lol

Still enough of my trials and tribulations the reason we are here is for the new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week it is the turn of the gorgeous Dianne and she would like you to use your Dies & Punches.  We are sponsored this week by
Digistamps4Joy SHOP

Wonderful and the DT were able to use some fabulous images from our generous sponsor.  I have used this cute mouse in a fishing boat and he has caught the sentiment also by our sponsor, coloured with copics and spectrums with a little glamour dust added to the water.  Background paper is MME Funday and then I used my JS starburst die to embellish adding glamour dust to to one of the stars.
