Naughty or Nice Challenge #33 - Don't Pull Your Punches!

Hello peeps!  

We've been getting really great submissions! Let's keep them coming! This month it's all about punches, dies and die-cuts over here at Naughty or Nice Challenges.  Dust them off if you usually don't use them and don't be afraid to join in! If you're a veteran, we want to see your work too :) 

Check out what our fantastic DT came up with this month and leave some love when you go visit their blogs. Remember to follow the rules that are listed below the DT matserpieces when you enter (I know, I know, they are there to be broken, but we cannot crown you the biggest troublemaker if you don't....) You have until November 25 to join in, so get scrappin'!

Turns out the phrase 'don't pull your punches' is a boxing term: when you pull a punch you don't hit the other fighter as hard as you can. It also means to hold back from doing or saying what you really think, not being completely honest so you won't hurt somebody's feelings. When you don't pull any punches you are frank, honest!
So, during November, we'd like to see your creations with punched shapes and die-cuts aplenty, and if you choose to be brutally honest (don't mince words, sugar coat, water down, pander or sweeten the pill) we'd love that too!
Here's some inspiration from the team to get you in the mood!
