Happy 100th Papertake Weekly xxx

Yes, Papertake Weekly is celebrating it's 100th challenge.

And I had my card all ready to go and then this morning I saw this little lady in my 'inbox'.

Well of course I was smitten and I just had to re-do my card so I could use her. She is Pumpkin and she is one of the brand new Frillie Milles that are now available at Pink Petticoat. There are 4 all together and they are all just as sweet.

But before we get to the card, I have to tell you that there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs this week, cos each one of the PTW girls has put together a giveaway to say a huge thank you to everyone for all the support over the last 99 challenges. Pop over to Papertake and check it all out. We've also got our Nikki back after her break plus 2 brand new guest designers :)

The challenge this week is

'Take Your Pick'

and that's exactly what you can do cos you can choose any one of the last 99 challenges and use that for your card. So there's heaps to choose from!!

And all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the 6 prizes up for grabs is to visit each of our blogs and leave us a comment, and then next week we will each draw a random winner.

So this is what I'm offering - and it's all pink and green to match my card - well mostly :)

It's a little tote filled with a selection of images (I'll give the winner a choice from the stamps I have so you can choose the images you want).

There's also some blooms, a Papermania mini scrapbook kit which has various bits and bobs in it, and I'll make some card charms as well (they're not shown here).

I might even put some extra surprise things in as well cos we all like surprises :)

Here's me card.

Like I said I did have another one done but I just had to use this image.
The challenges I chose are Delightful Downloads and I used the layout from Sketch #4.

I coloured Pumpkin with my old PMs (they are getting old as well, but then aren't we all lol xx) and I did the Glamour Dust sparkle thing and a bit of D-ing which you can sort of see here. The sentiment is from a Woodware set and the little black beads were from Creative Pastimes xxx


The gorge ribbon is from my US parcel - I had to re-cycle it from one of my other cards cos I've run out (sob sob). The papers are all PP - Little Fleurs and Really Big Dots.

You can see the 3D bits a little better here.

So there ya go. I do hope that lots of you will help us to celebrate. Nip over to Papertake and check out the fabulous cards that the girlies have made - each and every one is just as gorge as always.

I'm having another early night cos I had a very long day yesterday. I was down in Oxford and I got to meet a lady who I've spoken to re work for quite a while now. It turns out that she is an avid scrapbooker - talk about a small world!!!. So if I go to the NEC later in the year, we are going to meet up again. And like every other crafter I've ever met, she's lovely. She doesn't have her own blog as yet but I'm trying to persuade her lol xx

So that's it for tonight. But before I beggar off to get the pjs and poly-filla night cream on (think I'm joking ???) I would like to say a huge thank you to all the PTW design team, past and present, and to everyone who has supported us over the last 100 challenges.

Have a great night lovely peeps and see ya soon xxxx
