Papertake Weekly Challenge

Morning folks and congratulations are in order.....Papertake Weekly are celebrating their 100th challenge this week....well done to their fabulous Design Team....almost 2 years and still going strong....so there was no way I was missing out on this one....seeing as I didn't get round to doing a card for last week and the challenge this week is.....

TAKE YOUR PICK
choose any theme from the last 99 challenges
well I had to go with one of my fabby bloggy bud's sketches
the one and only Dawny P
Sketch 7 - January 2009
And I am still in Christmas mode.....so couldn't resist working with these fabulous new papers from My Mind's Eye and my new Christmas stamp sets from Hero Arts
 
 
Papers: My Mind's Eye.......Merry Days of Christmas
Images: Hero Arts.....Make your Own Clear Stamp Set
Let It Snow Clear Stamp Set
Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Weathered Wood..Faded Jeans & Brushed Corduroy
a good old sprinkling of the old GD
Snowflakes......Quickutz
Gems: Papermania Shimmer Dots
What a palaver getting a half decent pic of this one.....what is it about blue.....tried outside...inside and it was way too blue.....they say the camera doesn't lie.....well don't agree because this paper is such a gorgeous soft duck egg blue and even after a bit of playing around with the photo editing thingy....it still looks a bit turquoise.....first we complained about the bright sunshine.....well now it has gone to the other end of the weather spectrum...dark dreary days....never a happy medium....but I think this may be my colour combo for this year's Christmas cards.....do love Red and Blue together.
And before I forget it's time for this week's Sneaky Peek......
 
and another tasty peek.....the second item going into the blog candy
 
this super cute little handbag
chocca full of Penny Black Images.....some of the brand new Christmas releases too.
Well ever onward as they say.....need to catch up on some household chores today and do a bit of food shopping....but will catch up with you all tomorrow for another fab challenge from Polkadoodles and let me tell you my DT card almost ended up a total disaster.....but turned out to be a "happy accident".....and oh yes I will be coming clean and sharing the tale of woe......toodle oo for now.

Well these are both flippin fab Mrs xxx Love the snowman one - love that you picked one of the piggy sketches mmmmwwaaahhhh xxxx And that little bag is just gorgeous. Ohh tell me about Mr Blogger, the sod!!! I have had a nightmare these last few days. I go to leave a comment - it throws me out. Sometimes it throws me out before I get chance to leave a comment. I felt like putting me shoe through the screen at one ponit. Fingers crossed it seems tp be behaving today. Probably won't last though will it :( Biggest hugs my fabulous friend xxxx

Hi Kath, I have just popped on to say what gorgeous cards you have made for Simply Cards & Papercraft. I knew as soon as I saw them that they were yours before I saw your name. You have such fantastic ideas and you always add little extras which finish the card perfectly.
