Not In My Name

Sorry for being a bit political but I'm sick to the back teeth already of the Scottish independence debate. But more importantly I'm sick of Alex Salmond continually spouting 'the Scottish people want bla bla bla...'. How does he know what the Scottish people want? Has he spoken to every last one of us? He will only know what the Scottish people want when the referendum is over - and let's hope the majority vote with the thought 'united we stand and divided we fall' in mind before they place their cross. But to lighten all the boring and annoying bla I came across a sneak peek of the aforementioned ballot paper (apologies if you need a translation):

Anyway onto this weeks LIM challenge of punches or die cuts. For my entry I've cut a nappy freehand using scallop scissors, embossed using a Cuttlebug folder, used a Sizzix nappy pin die and my Cricut for the word Boy. The DP is a Pink Petticoat scrap. I love shaped cards - but with many shapes you don't end up with a decent sized card (as in my previous Smelly Welly post) - this one is not too bad size wise.

Finally, whilst you still have the services of a translator, here is a little Scottish joke.

A wee Glesga wumman goes intae a butcher shop, where the butcher has just came oot the freezer, and is standing haunds ahint his back, with his erse aimed at an electric fire. The wee wumman checks oot the display case then asks, 'Is that yer Ayrshire bacon?' 'Naw,' replies the butcher. 'It's jist ma haun's ah'm heatin'

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
