Double Papertake Weekly xxxx

It's time for another Papertake Weekly and I've done 2 cards this week. I was going to use TGF Hope and Grace - not sure which one this little sweetie-pie is. But you can get them for sure at Dies To Die For.

But then I got my new Wild Rose Studio Christmas stamps and well, I couldn't make up my mind. So I used both :)

It's a sketch and it's this one here ...

I've used the sketch, natch, but I rotated it for this first card.

And you know the usual blurb... PMs, Glamour Dust and MSBP - they are all in evidence. That cute lil bow in her hair is my fave US ribbon which really is very near the end :( And the big pink and little black pearly dots were from Creative Pastimes - can't remember who makes them though, soz!!

I've mixed the papers again and they are PP (Stripes), and Wild Rose Studio Spring CD (gorgeous gingham)

So that's the first card. And here's the second.

So now you see my dilemma cos how could you refuse that sweet little face? Well I certainly couldn't.

So again I used the good old bad boys and a generous sprinkling of Glamour Dust. The silver mesh bow was from our local floristry warehouse and the little domed diamond gems were from Creative Pastimes (they are Kars)

The papers are Mad About Cards - gingham - and PP (Stripes and Tis The Season)

And there ya go.

Same sketch but 2 different ways .

So do pop over to PTW and have a good old nosey at what the other girlies have done with it - some wonderful work as always. There is a fabulous Simon Says Stamp gift voucher up for grabs for another lucky girl as well.

I am off for my dinner now cos swine flu Richard has cooked it for me. We are having a 70s classic - chicken and chips, but not in a basket I hasten to add!!! Ohh it was all the rage once wasn't it. I was never that keen to be honest cos I always worried that they couldn't really wash the baskets properly and I am funny about that sort of thing!!!

But I shall enjoy this cos I haven't made it and it away tastes better when someone else does the cooking.

Meal times have been a bit strange without little Miss K filling us in on her day at nursery. I am starting to miss them and can't wait to see her little face again. So it's just the 2 of us, but we are not one of those couples who sit and eat and don't talk ( no chance of that with old gabbalot Phillips lol xxc)

We went out for dinner last week and sat next to a couple who were just a bit older than us and they hardly said a word to each other for the duration of their meal. They just sat and ate, dabbed their mouths with their napkins and then left!! Ohh, maybe they'd had a row :(

Anyway, his Lorship has just called and said that he is dishing up and if I don't get there handy he will nick all the chips, the beggar!!!

Have a fab night peepsxxxxx
