GL14 Die cuts and or Punches

First day of spring  YEAH  Welcome back to the Gingerloft challenge.  WOW so many entries.  AMAZING work to everyone that entered.  This challenge we want to see you use those die cuts and or punches.  What did we ever do without those die cut machines.  The world of stamping has changed so much over the 12 years that I have been a stamping girl.  This week's prize is a bit different.  Up for grabs for our random winner is a grab bag of 5 unmounted rubber stamps from Gingerloft.  YES real RUBBER!!!  These are very limited stock and you can pick up a bag at our Gingerloft store with FREE SHIP if you live in the US.  Our top 3 will be the next challenge GDT.
                         SAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN WIN  (your grab bag will be different)
You have until April 2 at midnight to play.  So first up is the GDT.  They did a wonderful job.

A little about me:
I'm a 35 years old girl, living in a small place called Osen i Norway, together with my fiance, 2 children and a cat.
I work part time as an enrolled nurse, and by not working full time, means more time for my family - and my hobbies!
I've been doing all sorts of crafting almost ever since I was born, but landed in the paperworld in 2006.
I love papercrafting!!! Making cards and boxes and other things, with beautiful papers, colours, images and embellishments, always makes me happy!
Thank you so much for having me as your GDT this week!

Hi, I'm Maria I have been stamping/cardmaking for 2 years now and consider it a ministry of Joy!  I live a very peaceful and contented life in our small country town in Pennsylvania running our family business with my DH of 23 years and our four children which we have homeschooled from the start.  My goal for 2011 is to actually work up the nerve to send in some of my creations for publication in any of the magazines I constantly page through for inspiration!  

Wow I can’t believe it, I have only been bloging since January and I have been asked to be a guest designer for The Ginger Loft.
This is so great and a little bit scary as I have not done this before.
I have been crafting for a few years, but only started stamping about 6 months ago. I have followed a lot of ‘how to colour videos’ and this has helped me to understand what I am doing. As with most people to fund my hobby I work ( this is my real passion ) with speech and language impaired children, but only part time now because of my health. We do a lot of crafting in school and the children really enjoy it.
Once a month I attend a local craft group with my daughter and mum, where we get to enjoy the company and inspiration of our friends.  So not only has craft given me a sense of purpose but it has enabled me to make some great friends along the way.
