Sneaky Peeky Papertake Weekly

Picture 007 copy

Hi there lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today :)

Over at Papertake Weekly today, it’s time for our monthly

Anything Goes

challenge which we know you all love as you can really get creative and do your own thing.

As always we have an optional extra for you and this month it is to use felt somewhere on your card or project. But of course you don’t HAVE to – it’s there only as an option

As always we are sponsored by Lisa & Laila over at

Lili of The Valley

and they have given us a …

… to give to one lucky winner.

Hugest of thanks for a fabulous prize :)xxx

So …

… here’s me card and it’s also a bit of a sneaky peekie cos this little cutie will be out in rubber very soon.

He’s called

Pup’s Christmas Stocking

and he’s one of the brand new release which will be out on 22nd August (not too much longer to wait now).

I gave him the Copics treatment and these are the colours I used – E09, E31, E34, E35, E39, E40, E42, E42, E43, E50, E51. E53, E81, G99, R05, R17, R27, R59, YG0000, YG00, YG03, YG63

The papers are all from the Wild Rose Studio Traditional Christmas paper pack – nice and bright and zingy which is just how I like ‘em!!!

Some beauties here from The Ribbon Girl.

A bow made from 15mm Red No.15 Berisford Satin ribbon and topped off with some natural button twine and a Pale Lime Green Small Polka Dot Spotty Button.

I also used some gorgeous 30mm Cream Zig Zag Cotton Lace …. and then went and covered most of it up, being the dope that I am!!!!

A greeting printed onto some SAFMAT Self-Adhesive Printing Film and then popped onto some kraft card.

Why is it that when kraft card was really big, I didn’t like it and now it’s not quite as popular, I am loving it????

So there’s the old card done and if you get a sec peeps, nip over and check out the challenge.

I am busy doing my prep for this forthcoming weekend over at the LOTV shop.


My classes are now all fully booked and hugest of thanks to everyone who is partaking – I cannot wait to see you all  :) xxx

I THINK  there may be one or two spaces on Bev’s (and it is literally one or two) so if you haven’t booked and you want to do so, best get in fast before those precious places go. The shop really is a nice place to be – chock full of lots of pretty things -  and it is good for the creative part of the soul  as well. I tell you peeps, the old mojo is well and truly revved up when I’ve been there.

AND if that wasn’t all, you can now get your mitts on the brand new 8x8 paper packs which are exclusive to LOTV.

Some are by Nitwits, some have been designed by our Laila and all are fabulous. They will be on sale on the website soon and will sell at £7.50 which is amazing VFM peeps. Mine arrived here today and I haven’t stopped drooling yet (yes I know that is quite normal for me in my advanced years but it’s even worse now !!).  So if you are coming along to the shop, you will be able to bag yourselves some to take home :) 

Right I better go and start my list of jobs.

Have the bestest day and see you back here tomoz.

Huggiest of hugs to all xxx

I wondered why there were no animals in the Christmas release! Now I know I need to start saving again, hard. D'ya reckon it's worth me trying the streets again ..... last time I kept getting asked for refunds. Anyhoo, super card hun, just love that little pup (butter wouldn't melt) - better get busy, can't be missing out on an Anything Goes now can I?! Hugs Sxx
