Papertake Picfest and Festive Pics :)x

Imagine some nice Christmas music playing in the backgound as you read this - yes we are all seasonal here at chez piggy wiggy.

It's Tuesday, so that means it's time for another Papertake Weekly challenge, and this week it's a sketch.

It's this one here .......

I got to play with the new Wild Rose Studio Christmas CD and I thought I'd use it for this weeks Papertake Weekly cos it is just uber FABBYTASTIC!!!!! You can see here for more info, and all papers, images and sentiments in this post are from the CD :)

There's loads and loads on there and all have co-ordinating papers so you can be sure it all matches. Plus there's papers and images which you can colour yourself, and Dulcie has even included a decoupage sheet for all the images. There's coloured and uncoloured in various sizes - you will absolutely be spoiled for choice.

I was, so I ended up doing 2 cards.

And I was obviously in the festive spirit and feeling kind cos I gave the good old bad boys the night off as well, cos eveything I used was all pre-coloured.
Honestly, it could not be easier to make your cards.

So this is the first card I did. How sweet is that mouse!!!!

And do you like the snow?

I used white Flowersoft which was part of my prize from Simon Says Stamp - it really does look like crispy white snow. I didn't give the Glamour Dust a rest though so there's a bit of that sprinked about as well.

I was inspired to dig out my Cuttlebug snowflake cos Mrs Kath used one for her PTW card this week - see here cos it's brill. And that got a dousing in Flowersoft as well.

You should see the cat lol xx

You can see the gorgeous paper a bit better here - too cute for words.

So that's the first card.

Lilac, a sweet girlie with prezzies and some more Flowersoft ....

... and here's the second card.

The ribbon was from the Paper Mill Shop

Ooops I've over- done the lighting a bit here - dope!!!
But I hope you likee.

If you get a sec, check out PTW cos there's some cracking work on there, as always, and next week we have some wonderful news which I'm dying the share but I can't until then - oooohhhh!!!!!

I'm off to do the 'nursey' bit cos poor Richard fell off a ladder today whilst picking apples from off of our trees. He hurt his arm and his stomach and there's a big red mark on his head as well, poor lad.

He will of course milk it for all it's worth so although I feel sorry for him now, no doubt by the end of the week, I will be wanting to put the ladder somewhere the sun does not shine lol xxx

Have the fabbiest of nights and hugs to all xxxx

What beautiful colors on both cards. I love the techniques you used and having papers that match the stamps is MY kind of world. Thank you for the warmth on my blog.
