Papertake Weekly Challenge

Morning Folks.....and yes it's definitely going to be another scorcher.....I am wilting just thinking about it.....we shouldn't complain but it has been so humid here and I can't remove any more clothes.....not if I don't want to be arrested for indecent exposure....but spare a thought for the poor Budster....well say no more...wrapped in a toasty furry coat. I just lost all motivation was too hot even to sit around......the thermometer was hitting 30-32 at times and I was almost at the stage of going and sitting in a bath of cold water......certainly not great when you have heaps of crafty stuff to be getting on with but I did manage to battle through the heat and make another challenge card.
The challenge this week on Papertake Weekly is another fabby sketch from my lovely bloggy bud...Dawny P which I have rotated and I decided to have another play with some of my goodies from my shopping spree with Dawn
Papers: My Minds Eye....Pretty Please Collection
Images: Panduro...Tilda Papercraft Collection
Alphabets: American Crafts Thickers
And yes it's sneaky peek Thursday.....only one peek I'm afraid
Penny Black Saturday is still a work in progress
Well off in search of an electric fan.....I know there is one somewhere on the premises....last used the last time we had summer....about 10 years ago probably and then get cracking with the crafting before it gets too hot.....catch up with you all tomorrow for a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles and if I manage to get through another day feeling like a greasy plook (spot)....perhaps another challenge card.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

  7. Another fab card Kath, live that flower, I have looked at those Tilda images and your card brings them to life, as usual thanks for the inspiration,
    Make the most of the weather this morning, the weather man says you will get some thunder storms later today, so don't bother to water the garden just yet.
