Hi all first of all i would like to say a big

Well done Girls
Please could you email me your name and address
then we can get these in the post for you.

Now onto this weeks 
Papertake challenge.

We have a theme this week which is

Get in Shape

we want to see three 
different shapes on your cards.

We are sponsored this time
by Whiff of Joy


I have used
Square,rectangle and circle.

I have finally made my first 

Christmas card for this year,
one down loads to go.. LOL.

It all started with wanting to have a play
with my inktense pencils, so i 
dug out a trusty Tilda and some 
water colour card and had a play.

She somehow ended up being different shades 
of brown so i settled on vintage style.

I have used  Tim Holtz alterations die's
Weathered clock and Tattered Flowers.
I never thought i could use these not having a 
sizzix machine
but then found out (Thank heavens for You tube)
that you can use these in a Cuttlebug 
just using 2 B plates


 Glad i didn't get rid of my bug when i got my Caliber.
I had them on order
before the demo had finished.
They are fantastic i just love them,
something else i can start collecting now.
Don't tell Hubby.

I used old book pages inked with 
Vintage Photo distress ink for the flower.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid.
Sentiment from LOTV. 
I used platinum and star dust stickles,
Lace is from my stash.

I'm also going to enter my card into this weeks 
Just Magnolia challenge.
I think i must have had a premonition or something 
because i made my card last Wednesday.
Looking at the challenge on Friday 
they have an Anything goes with an 
option theme which is
Coffee and Cream.
Spooky or what.


that's all for now 
Thanks for stopping by today
Take care
