GDT For Papertake Weekly

Hi Everyone,

How are you doing now that the big day is over? Finished all the turkey? I had a fantastic time, 2nd year running me and the hubby hosted and did we have fun. We have loved every minute of it and hope the family enjoyed themselves too. Funny how I never used to help when I lived at home and now that we have our own place we love getting everyone around for dinner etc. I've grown up loads in the last few years, gosh... sometimes I think back to what a brat I used to be, I've got to make up for it now hey....

Today I am really delighted to share this card with you. Dawn at Papertake Weekly was looking for some GDT's to help out this week at her final challenge of the year so I applied and she accepted!!!! The theme is 'Be Thankful', considering all the presents we have all accepted recently it is only fair we send out some thank you cards right? So here is one of the many I have made. The rest are the same layout just in different colours.

It was difficult keeping away from the beloved stamps but I wanted something which was simple and quick to mass produce so I could send them out to everyone. I like the way they turned out. The flowers are a mixture of Papermania and Wild Orchid, the DP is Papermania. The ribbon is from stash, sentiment is hand written with inked edges, the punch is Martha Stewart.
Come and join us on this fab event at Papertake Weekly, we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!!! How cool is that?
Before I go, I just want to THANK Dawn so much for this opportunity, I am so lucky to have been chosen for this wonderful event.
Take Care everyone, I will be back soon.

My first For Fun Challenge Card

Hi Everyone,

How are you all this very festive, cold and snowy season? I am really excited for Christmas, I am hosting again, so exciting. Yesterday was my final day at work until 4th Jan. My job means even when I have time off I could end up working so this time of year is the only time where I do actually get time off!!! Whooopiiiii lol. I love my job but we all need a break now and then don't we?

Anyway as you all know I am now a fellow DT for For Fun Challenges, my term doesn't actually start till Jan but seeing as I had sometime I thought why not make a card, obviously lol. This week at For Fun Challenges the theme is 'Anything Goes' so no excuses guys come on, get those new toys out that you asked for from Santa and have a play, why not...

Seeing as I am done with all my Christmas projects I thought I better start getting down to my everyday cards again, I'm hoping to do a few fates early next year so need to stock up again. So this week I decided on a male card. This is one of my favourite male cards so far I think, so bright and fresh yet simple. What do you think?
Image: Wild Rose Studio
Sentiment: Papermania
Medium: Promarkers
DP: Forever Friends
Embellishments: Button from stash and glittery blue stickers
Hope you can join us with this challenge

For the One I Love

Hi Guys,

I have thoroughly enjoyed making this card today. I needed to make one last Christmas card and I left the best to last. Not only is this my favourite Christmas card I have made this year but it is also for my most favourite person in my life-my hubby : )

It has been a few days since I got a chance to sit down and make some cards, so I was worried my mojo may have vanished but I so love how this turned out.

For this card, I used 3 DPs all Papermania Christmas range, I distressed and then embossed all the edges in gold embossing powder. The image is a cute little Tilda coloured with Promarkers. I added a little embossing to Tilda's bow to keep with the gold theme. The Heart is a Graphicus stamp, stamped with Versa clear ink and then embossed using Gold embossing powder. I added a few white plastic snowflakes and then some gems in the corners.


Totally Tilda: #11 For the One I Love

Sketch Saturday: #133

Sweet Stampin Challenge: #Recipe

Just Magnolia: #85 Christmas Card

Alphabet Challenge: G for Glitter (hope gold embossing counts)

I hope the hubby loves it as much as I do
