Last Post ....

....of the year!!!!
Blimey, where did 2009 go?

And it's the last Papertake Weekly of 2009 as well. This week we are sponsored by the very wonderful Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and there is a whopping $25 voucher up for grabs, so do check it out lovely peeps.

So our last challenge of the year is a sketch -

...this one here.

I seem to be having a bit of a Hanglar run at the mo - I know I am a lucky so and so to have a few of these beauties in my possession and I do have to thank a certain someone for sending them to me xxxx

I coloured this cutie with my usual PMs and I gave her a sparkly cardi with the good old Glamour Dust.

And this is my take on the sketch.

That gorgeous Doodlebug paper is available from Tracy over at Dies To Die For and I can tell you that I have stroked this paper to within an inch of it's spotty life lol xx I am LOVING it and I very nearly couldn't bring myself to use it cos I have a real aversion to putting scissors near me best papers!!!!

I used my MS Flourish punch to jazz up the layering - it's fast becoming a habit cos now I hate to see it looking plain!!

Oh dear!!!

The bloom was from Simon Says Stamp and the button and twine were from my stash

And that's the old card peeps.

I hope that you all had a fabby old Christmas and that you got loads of giftage :) And apart from me having a really yukky viral thing which made me sound like a cross between Marge Simpson and Gonzo from the Muppets (yes, truly, and I still do a bit!!!), we managed to avoid anything horrible this year. In fact, it was all very peaceful, apart from Kyla and her Hannah Montana guitar and microphone!!! But our living room actually looks like Toys R Us at th mo so we are going to have to find homes for all her new stuff.

We never really think it through!!!!

We are taking her ladyship ten pin bowling tonight. She's not been before so it should be fun!!! We're getting ready to go shortly so on that note I'll say toodle pips and have a fab new years eve if I'm not back before then.

Finally, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has stopped by the pig sty this year and put up with my inane drivvle and ramblings. I really do appreciate it and wish you all a very


Biggest hugs to all xxx
