PaperFAKE Weekly :)

Yes we're 'Faking It' over at PTW.

This sweetie lil sausage isn't a fake though. She is one of my new Miss Anya Dressy set. And the good news is that they are now in stock over at Dies To Die For and trust me peeps, they are even nicer when you get yer actual mitts on them :).

Also, keep your eyes peeled on the website cos Tracy has some awesome offers on at the mo.

Anyway, our challenge this week is to fake something your card. It could be stitching, flowers, ribbons, anything you want. And the team have done some stunning work as always so do nip and have a nosey.

Plus we have 3 brand new guest designers this week and one of them is none other than my spiritual cyber twin, Mrs Kath :)

So this is me card.

I don't know if you can tell from this pic but I've 3D'd her hat, skirt and collar. She was, as usual, coloured with my fabulous bad boys BUT there is not a single speck of glitter on here. Nor is there a border punch.

I must be ill or maybe there is a full moon lol xxx

But can you spot the 'fake' on here?

Well natch the stitching is drawn on cos I always do that!!! But there's something else not 'real' as well.

Yes, the button and thread are both made out of card!!!

The papers are both Pink Petticoat and the sentiment is from a Woodware set.

Due to the crappo angle I took this pic at, you can't really see the dimension but there is some there.

And that's it.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the cards chicks cos they are all so fab.

Ahhh it was so sad to hear about Patrick Swayze. Dirty Dancing didn't do it for me, I didn't have the time of my life watching it and you could have stuck Baby anywhere you liked as far as I was concerned.

But that scene from Ghost gets me every time.

Probably cos I used to be a potter - and I am still a bit potty as those of you who have met me will confirm. But sadly, the male potter I knew was a weasly little sod with more than a hint of Bobby Orange about him.

And to be honest, if he had sidled up behind me while I was on the wheel, I would have run a sodding mile.

And on that rather unsavoury note, I am off to bed, even though it isn't THAT late. But we did have a very very late night last night cos we stayed up to watch the US Open. We decided to have Pimms and strawberries and cream just for a bit of a laugh. And of course, it went to 5 sets, so that was more Pimms to keep us going - that stuff is so more-ish. I didn't want to get up this morning and I have not got out of 2nd gear all day, so the old batteries need re-charging.

Have a fab night and hugs to all xxxxx

PS - it was sad too about the culinary genius that was Keith Floyd. But can you imagine the party that is going on 'up there' right now -fantastic!!!
