Firstly I'd like to thank the ladies that have left comments below about our cards.....I'm ashamed to say that mine has taken me 24 hours so far (on and off) to do!!! but it's nearly finished and my mother's birthday isn't until the 6th January so it's not so bad, I've still got plenty of time.
My daughter has also been tickled pink with the lovely comments about her card...so much so that I'm needing to give her a blog sign in as I can't have her leaving 'anonymous' comments all over the place!!! ;o)
So...back to the question at the top of the thread.
Has anyone ever broken a paper craft punch before?!?!? We bought a MS one just before Christmas (the butterfly cutout border one) it's gorgeous and while it was a bit stiff to begin with I thought it was just me not knowing what to do (there's a shocker!!!) Anyway...we were cutting through cardstock yesterday..NOT cardboard...and it completely cut in half...not the plastic but the metal!!!!!!! Is that normal?!?!? The shop is taking it back so no money lost but I just thought that was quite bizarre?! Has this happened to anyone else or am I abnormally strong!!! ;o)
