Penny Black and More - Dies and Punches

Afternoon peeps.  Another scorching day which wasn't helped by having to have all the windows in the apartment block closed as the window cleaner was coming today!!!!  Glad he had come round and finished ours by 1pm but it was still very hot!!!  We went out first thing until about 9.45.

My card today is another one just because I want too.  I got my inspiration from KATE but of course mine is nothing like hers but at least I tried.  Didn't help that I couldn't get the punch to punch through the card I wanted it too, so I had to adapt the way I was first going to do it. Also I put the sentiment panel on the wrong side inside the smaller card.  Lol!!!  Didn't realise until I saw the photo's.  Lol!!!
