Hi lovely peeps and hope that you are all OK today.
It’s the first Papertake Weekly of the month and we have our usual
theme with an optional extra - and this month it’s to use metal.
We’re sponsored by the fabulous Lili Of The Valley an there is a voucher up for grabs so if you get a sec, check it all out :)
So this is what I did.
E000, E00, R11 (skin), E42, E50 (hair), B000, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, G94, G99, R85, RV00, RV000, YG03, YG63 (clothes etc). Then I added some polychromos depth – like you do!!!
Here’s some deets pics - I got a bit carried away with the editing, which isn't great cos I cannot seem to do bright pink very well :(
Other stuff I used is -
And I got the old MS embossed zig zag punch out cos it had been idle for too log, the slacker!!!
So there you go.
I just heard that Harrods (it’s where I go when I run out of foie gars and caviar lol) and some other posh shops have got their Chrizzy displays up already.
I just checked and apparently there are only 144 days left until Christmas – ooops, sorry if I’ve panicked you now!!! Quick, go and get the turkey – they might sell out!!!!
I feel a bit of a ….
… rant coming on.
Is it me or is this waaaaay too early?
I know us ‘cardie’ peeps get started on our cards now and I’ve been doing Christmas commissions for months but that’s different (isn't it??).
Come December, we’ll all be heartily sick of it and it would be much better if they started say in October – like they used to do – so that there was a nice little run up to the big day. Call me old fashioned but it would get us all in the festive spirit and keep us there without us all getting bored, would it not? I mean, we haven't even had summer yet??? Ok well maybe we have cos we had 4 nice days in a row so that counts I guess.
Maybe they will just leave all the decs and displays etc up and start the run up in January – only 350 days till Christmas peeps, woohoooo!!!. You didn’t think of that one did you Mr Greedy Shopkeepers!!!
I don’t mean to sound bah humbug but perrrleeeeze!!!
I probably sound like a right old moaning biddy-bag now but it’s not cos I hate Christmas – au contrair, I love it. And I want to keep it special and something to look forward but not months in advance if you get the drift.
It’s a bit like Cadburys selling crème eggs all year round!!!
Anyway, that’s me moan over and the soapbox is away again.
And breathe …..
Ahhh that’s better – I’ll leave you with a sneekie peekie of tomorrow’s card ….
Mmm, you see the red and green?
But we have to do them now cos we aint machines and we need time to get them all ready.
Ooohh I’m going before Basil comes back!! See you tomoz and hugs to all xxx
