Papertake Weekly Challenge

Hi everybody...yes I'm back with another challenge's either a feast or a famine here don't you think....but once again I couldn't miss out on the challenge this week from Papertake of my favourite challenge blogs run by my lovely and oh so sweet bloggy bud...Dawny P and sponsoring the prize this week...another of my favourite ladies...the lovely and talented Liz from Pink Petticoat...and the icing on the cake....another of Dawny's fab it was off to search through my Pink Petticoat box.....crammed full of printed papers and images.
Papers: Pink Petticoat...Washed Out Collection
Little Fleurs Collection
Image: "Home Sweet Home"
"I Think You're Amazing"
Doodlebug All Mixed Media Rub-ons
Ribbon...American Crafts
I decided to flip the sketch so that I could use this super cute image.....all coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks....a little bit of inking around the edges....faux stitching and some decoupage thrown in for good measure.
Well that's it for today folks.....short and sweet.......I am racing through my posts at the moment waiting with bated breath for Mr Awkward Sod BT to pull the plug.....I am convinced that the problem is a BT one but try getting them to admit they are wrong.....but I won't be continuing my Broadband contract when it comes up for renewal.......and little did I know that my secretarial training all those years the times of Pitman Shorthand and wooden boilers would stand me in good stead......the keyboard is red hot and smoking as my fingers race to get each post finished and published.
You will have probably sneaky peeks today.....well there is a very good reason for that....haven't done my DT stuff off to make a welcome cuppa and then get stuck in.....catch up with you all tomorrow for another challenge on Polka Doodles......Hugs Kath xxxxx

Another stunning creation Kath. Might just have to fit this challenge in myself, I've had the 'Big Fella' download from PP for weeks and just haven't had the time to use it. Enjoy the rest of the day :)xx
